    I won the Marina Lotto :)

    You won for sure. Our marina is strict on the rules.

    At our marina the boat has to be registered to the leasee.

    2008 Sunesta 284 random projects

    HAHA!!! its says I only have 37kb left or something like that. Only way I can get a pic in here is to shrink it down so much you can barely see it.

    2008 Sunesta 284 random projects

    @BajaDriver When we first bought it and hull was clean I saw 52 on gps at 4,950 rpm and that was everything it had. Now I'm seeing 48 but the hull is dirty from sitting in the water for two months so I assume that is why its slower. @Hatem I just use the smartcraft depth on the tach, we are on a small lake that is 80' deep and we take the same basic path from the marina to party cove so its not really an issue. It is ABS plastic that I had laying around my shop for several years, I was happy to have finally found a use for it, lol. It's not as nice looking as I'd prefer but it will get the job done. I have too many projects left to worry about it until next year. At some point I'd like to order a sheet of carbon fiber and get rid of all the gauges and go to an ipad setup with the vessel view. I tried to load more of my pics but I guess I have reached my limit on pic uploading.

    Sunesta rear lounger pic request and conversion info

    @Dustin Mustangs Good luck on the offer and I think you're gonna love it. Just curious, which engine and how much are they asking? We got our 2008 284 Sunesta with the 496 mag ho for $59k which based on everything else in the used market was a smokin price.

    Figured I'd start a thread with all of my random projects. We traded our 2018 H2O 21' fish n ski in for this boat due to many reasons. I spent the first 5 weeks of owning it chasing an intermittent fuel delivery issue that turned out to be trash getting stuck to the pickup line screen. Next project was installing a kicker KX1600.1 amp with a 15" toby bandpass subwoofer, fosgate p600x4 and 4 kicker 8" wake tower speakers with LED's, I'll be adding a JL Audio HD600/4 in the next couple of weeks to get the fosgate amp out of 2ohm status (gets too hot under the driver helm). I took the 6.75" x 4" exhaust muffler out so now my 496 mag ho actually sounds like it should (this was recommended by Corsa), our pop up ski pole was jammed in the down position (took that apart and fixed it). Once this Texas weather starts to cool down I'll be replacing the bunk boards and making adjustments to our lift, cleaning up the amp wiring and making a panel out of starboard material to cover the huge opening where the door used to be, somehow make the rear seat recline like the newer sunesta's, add a cup holder where the trim tab switch used to be to hide that hole, finish installing the aqua marine deck in the rest of the boat and replace the factory panasonic 6.5's. Moved Lenco trim tab switch up to more visible location, got rid of the factory speedometer, I'm gonna mount a cup holder where the Lenco switch used to be.

    @Toddavid thanks for all the pics and everyone for the idea's and thoughts on how to do this. I'm just waiting on these brutal 100* Texas days to calm down before I jump in and tackle this project. I have some ideas on how to achieve this without the hinge and keep it flat, but until I start taking it apart who knows how it will actually work out. I'll post pics here if the OP is cool with that and in the future if anybody searches maybe all of our ideas will help them too.

    The same thing happened to us on our 2008 284 Sunesta we bought recently, me and the wife were looking forward to watching the sunset on that seat. I have the same exact plan as you. The pics I found online made it look pretty easy to copy their design. Its just basically some plastic pieces that tuck away and pop into holes cut into the brackets. I'll see if I can find some pics.

    Solid core or foam core hull under the water line?

    @hatem thanks for the pics and the info. That looks pretty solid. I cut some holes in the transom of my H2O last year to mount underwater lights but I dont think I'd have the balls to cut a hole that big in this boat.

    I'll go check out your windlass thread. Thanks for the info and that makes me feel better about it.

    Solid core or foam core hull under the water line?

    @hatem any idea what type of hull material my 2008 Sunesta 284 has? I've wondered this myself. Especially since I have a couple of small leaks I haven't had time to figure out yet.

    Proper bunk placement on boat lift?

    Found a pic on my phone.

    Proper bunk placement on boat lift?

    @Youngz haha, that is the exact lift I have mine on too. I believe by looking at your pic my bunks are further out but I'll verify next time I'm out there.
