    I have a plan in my head of replacing the old tweeters with USB chargers in the future. Not sure if it will be this year or next.

    While my 205V is not near as nice as yours, we have the same dreams. Below is the list of things that I have on my list for some day.

    Fresh air exhaust
    dome light (maybe RBG? mounted to bottom side of tower pointing down)
    Remove carpet and replace with deckadence
    Separate intake for KGB/bow ballast pump
    Electric over hydraulic brakes
    attitude adjustment plate

    Thanks E. Appreciate it. She's a beauty and has served this family well. 369 hours

    Now what though?!

    Open to cometics, but thinking preventative maintenance on engine and drive train. Need help here, as I'm over my skis. Aspiring to new rudder, rudder box, etc., but that can wait IMO. Boat is solid and drives on rails. New steering cable and water test in March. Will discuss new rudder, engine alignment, etc. with shop. Thinking about parts, availability, and preventive maintenance. What should I be looking for; either Indmar related or otherwise that may be hard to come by? Risers? Need some wisdom here from old 205V boat owners please.

    Looking for guidance, insight and advice on what to do next. Want this boat to serve another 20 summers.

    Thanks. It was a lot of fun and it’s payed for! Be sure to report back on your findings. Especially curious how the step-down works out. I went with an isolated approach due to how my HU and amps are wired to ignition. I didn’t want to hard stop the Pi every time I turned the key. That USB type-C + type-B extension flush mount plug in the glovebox seemed like the safe approach. Plus it lets you have USB flash plugged in at the same time.
    Yea the extra USB Flash is a nice touch. I have my stereo wired to one of my rocker switches as to make sure none of my amps are on during starting. I'll add a relay on the same rocker for the Pi. My starter battery is isolated from the house bank so cranking shouldn't affect either way. I will let you know how it goes!

    Awesome. I have all the DAC stuff getting delivered today. Hopefully have it running before this weekend's camping trip. I went with a 12v-24v to 5v step down converter and just going to hard wire it vs running on the power. I have the RA70 and hate how fiddley the bluetooth and changing phones is. Hopefully this will be less so. Thanks again, ill report back how it goes. BTW your boat looks killer. Hoping to do something similar with ours in the next few years.

    FWIW, it’s been working great. The Anker power banks last forever and I’ve had zero issues. Not sure average crew can hear the difference, but I definitely can and the flexibility of offering an SSID with Airplay target makes it painless for other folks to DJ. Pretty slick. Find myself starting with USB off the Fusion at launch for convenience and autoplay and then shifting to AUX Pi as we pass the the no wake zone.

    Thank you! Happy to try and answer questions as you get into it. Best of luck!
