So I am deep into rebuilding my dash. I am going to make a new dash surround copying the factory look. I am installing new gauges with Faria white with chrome trim (thanks Chuck!). I would really like to re-use my Ensign 735 digital tach-sync.

Does anyone out there have this unit? Any help/advice you can give me on the Ensign would be much appreciated!

did you get your gauges??

also: how are you going to make/ and of what material are you going to make the "surround" out of??

hey--guess where i'm going today?????? Suncoast boat show(city island, Sarasota, Fl.)

man---it's hard to go to these shows and NOT sign papers on one! of course it would cost me $150,000.00 to replace with the equivelent size and style boat. I really just go to get ideas for ours. check out all the vendors. new stuff. etc..

there ARE a couple center consoles for way under 100 i've been looking at though......wish me luck!

YES. GOT THEM YESTERDAY AND THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. THANKS FOR TAKING THE EXTRA TIME TO PACKAGE THEM SO NICELY!

I WATCHED A SHOW THE OTHER DAY THAT SAID IF YOU HAVE THE CASH NOW IS THE BEST TIME EVER TO BUY A BOT. HE SAID YOU BUY NEW NOW WELL BELOW MARKET VALUE THEN IN 4-6 YEARS WHEN (HOPEFULLY AND A BIG hopefully) THE MARKET TURNS BOAT PRICES WILL SOAR AND YOU CAN FLIP THE BOAT FOR A NICE PROFIT!

ALL MY POCKET CHANGE IS GOING INTO MY DAYTONA AND ALL MY SERIOUS MONEY INTO MY BUSINESS!


GOOD LUCK AT THE SHOW AND ENJOY!

THANKS AGAIN.

Here is a mach-up of the way I will build the new dash. I am going to copy the original with some custom touches. I used night shades spray window tint with an automotive pinstripe and decal on the underside of the panel. Of course they were just test pieces and the real deal will be done with much greater care and a Thompson decal and burgundy and gold pinstripes to match the colors of the boat.

The area that's missing paint was due to an overheat with my heat gun in that area causing the protective film to melt onto the lexan. I could not get it off so I just sprayed over it as it's just a test piece. Once I sprayed it and allowed it to dry, it pealed off. Go figure!






This is the beginning of the new layout of my equipment. Much work to do.

so tell me more about this thompson sticker

i had thought about getting someone to airbrush thompson from the back side, then paint over that--maybe some more airbrush ....

can't wait to see your progress.

i think i've decided on the gauge set...i think....maybe.....possibly....the ONE thing i AM sure about is that i overthink all of this!

Those are nice! I am going to have my local printer make me a decal with the Thompson logo as it is on the side of the boat. I am going to place it on the back side of the lexan and spray over it. I will either keep the decal on (in gold) or peal it off and spray gold over it. Super cheap and a very nice touch!

i was thinking the same thing except i was worried about the sticky residue leftover from the vinyl sticker....or having it start peeling off in a year or two if i left it

i will be cutting directly through the thompson also.... definitly still in the planning stage here....

I am attempting to re-wire the toggle switches and change over to LED rocker switches and a new 12 gang fuse panel mounted behind the dash. The way the wires are run now is a bit confusing. Anyone have a good diagram or some insight for me?

I am going to make a new panel for :

Nav Lts, Bilge, Blwr, Deck Lts, Ovrhd Lts, Horn, Eng Bay, W Wipers

you gotta refer to that color chart i sent ya--and make notes as you tear into it -then, one at a time....it'll all begin to come back together.

the lights are mostly all grey with different tracer colors. check at the light end of each light to get your answer. nav light are kinda funny because one side of the switch is all the nav lights and the other side is just the anchor light. so you'll see a couple wires tied together

blowers are solid yellow

bilge pumps are browns with tracers

horn i think is orange

check that link i posted here a few days back...

Hey Chuck I don't think I am going to be able to use your gauges. I can't match them anywhere but going special order new from boatersland.com and they want an extra $15 plus shipping over full retail!

the new four winns use these 4 way gauges and the tachs look nothing alike.

seems to work for them....

what gauges did you find that are a match?--i'm a pretty good shopper--send me a link.

i'm still struggling with a sync gauge to match/or not the set i just bought. really would like to have a 2 inch because of room restraints. i have found a 4 incher that looks close/would work but makes things kinda cramped.

Those are the gauges that I found and I got a really good deal on them. Face matches as does the bezel, however they are all domed glass where the 4-ins are flat glass.

ah-ha.

well i just tried to do a search to show you what i've been seeing at the shows when they use these gauges. couldn't round up much BUT, they would use these or similar 4ways and then use totally differant looking digital tachs.

Oh no! Have had a week straight of cold temps and non stop rain. Today is nice so I will be continuing. Was supposed to drop her in the water today but that's not happening!

I got all new gauges for the dash and re-ran all the wiring.
Sanded the entire deck and filled in scratches and imperfect areas.
Prepping to hopefully prime today and paint with Interlux Brightside white tomorrow.

So much to do and so little time especially since I have decided to get a job for the first time in 6 years! I have owned my own business' but with this economy things are getting tight so I need to bring in some extra money so I can enjoy the boat this summer.

bummer on the job thing...

i know what you mean...i wouldn't know what to do with myself if i had to work for someone else after all these years. and it sure seems like a possibility looking forward...our extra spending (boat, house, truck, toys etc) has slowed back a bit.

man i sure wish i was closer to getting mine in the water!

Yeah returning to work for someone else is not what I was looking to do at all! But we all do what we have to do. My eco-friendly skateboard company is new and doing well but not well enough to support all my fun toys!

Today is the day! We are launching her for the first time.

....but I have a snag. I can't get the port engine to stay running. Both carb filters were clogged big time from this crappy gas. I cleaned them out and now the starboard engine rungs great but the port engine is still stalling out only after about 15 seconds.

Any ideas? Don't these carbs have another filter? Where?

aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Replaced both filters and the fuel pump and still the same problem. I think it may be the shifter cable adjustment or the electrical hook up from the throttle shifter and ignition switch.

Still will not start/ Do you know much about the 3/7L 4 cyl? Possibly the kill switch. It wouln't turn over. Cranks well but wouln't turn over even with fuel poured into the carb. It did start after many cranks but dies quickly?????????

thats very possible--fuel, air, and fire is all you need for the most part....

did you hear these run before you bought it?

 there is a kill switch on the.....oh hell...what do you call that thing. right next to the carb where your cables "intersect". make sure the switch is centered.

make sure you are getting spark first. make sure your carb shoots fuel down the throat when you operate the throttle. disconnect the throttle linkage from the carb and pump it a couple times while looking down the throat.

let us know what you get.

ok ---just re-read your post--

sounds like no spark? if your pouring fuel down the throat and still no start--

does it act like it wants to start? or does it just crank endlessly

cranks endlessly. Here's a stupid question. Do all the gauges need to be hooked up for the engine to run? Maybe I hooked the tach or trim up wrong. Can that be it?

yeah getting spark and gauges are all hooked up correctly. Fuel is being pumped nicely into carb.

I removed a plug and re-connected it to the plug wire. Then cranked the engine and saw the spark in the plug gap. The plugs looked pretty good. But if it were just the plugs and I got the motor to turn over wouldn't it stay running? No need for plugs once the engine is running.  ? ? ?

This thing is kicking my ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
