C500 Update
« on: December 01, 2019, 03:21:57 PM »
As some may know I bought the C500 back from Mark. Just about rigged. Hooking up steering lines, and wiring's all that's left. Stay tuned.

Motor is wired btw. Grommet was missing. Bought one from a dude in Key West. Took forever to get here.

What was the other jack plate you had pictured on FB post ?
Never seen a fuel fill on dash .. Putting a ash tray under it ? LOL
The textured blue vinyl on seats is cool, and the pattern he did .. Looks great !
That boat is going to scare you Doug !

Only other jack plate I have is the 4" manual on the Fallison? Ya the fill is kinda there by necessity. And I didn't want it on the deck. Ashtray no. Cigarette lighter yes. Hell I just toss my butts to the Manatee ... Seats are what Ron originally had in his CVX 16. My boys Greg and Guy redid em for me. Yeah I dig the way they reversed the pattern on one to make em symmetrical. Think Mark said it best, "It'll be as fast as he is brave" ...
