      I really don't know. The boat goes in the water in May and it does not come out until mid October. 

       

      Sorry!

    Iggy when you replaced your water heater did you have to remove the floor to get enough room to get it out?

      No I pulled out what was the cooler storage. I have a wet bar just above it and in the base was a place for a cooler which I turned into storage for finders and lines.

      With that removed, it was simple to pull out the old one and drop in the new water heater. 

       

      Also you could take the old one out in parts, by cutting it up. The newer ones come round or square. if that helps.

  4. I bought a fish finder and I am looking for a place to mount it. I have a 2003 243 Sunesta. I have already ran my transducer wire. Also I want to splice into the OEM depth finder switch, but I am not sure what wires to splice into. 

    Do you have any recommendations to place the finder and what wires I splice for the power source. 

     

    Thanks

      Hi,

      I really don't know the layout of a 243. But I would mount it as high enough so that your not taking your eyes off the road/water that much. In other words, you don't won't to be looking down than up. But glancing up and down!!

      I am not sure what you mean by "Also I want to splice into the OEM depth finder switch, but I am not sure what wires to splice into." But, don't touch the stock transducer wires. Its good to have two sources for depth.

      As to power, I would look into the future. Meaning you may want to run up a 10 guage wire from the battery switch and the battery's ground. For ground, you can install a bus bar. For the Pos side install a 6 circuit fuse panel. Both can be installed under the helm. Now if needed you can add a VHF, GPS, lights  and more.

      Carver and Silverton are all good boats. I have been lookin at Doral & Cruiser Yachts . Doral is out of business now but all there parts (more so the engines) are still out there.

      I would stay away from all the lake boats, like Chaparral, Bayliner, and a like.

      Sterndrives are more work and cost more in maintenance. In boards (diesels) with a bow thruster unless your that good and I am not.    

      Be aware too, that 90% of this forum are lake boaters. They all mean well, but never had to deal with tides, currents, salt water, rough seas and ...................................
