    Was actually pretty easy. All those gauges come out from the back side, just a bracket and a small nut on a bolt. Getting the dash off is the trick. The dash has two plastic strips glued to it and they extend down and come in contact with the fiberglass of the deck where the deck goes behind the dash pod. If you get up under the helm you will see two screws that will stick through the fiberglass. You will need to back those out with pliers (tedious and takes time). If you don't take these screws out you will break the plastic straps and then you are in a fix. Once you get these screws out and you take out the steering wheel assembly, the dash will lift out.

    When I put mine back together, I put small bolts with nuts to replace the screws so it comes out easier the next time.

    When you put the through-hull transducer in the bottom of the boat, make sure you stay away from the tracking fins as they will cause it to not read at high speeds (above 35 mpg), at least it did on mine. You can power the depth finder from one of your accessory switches. It is a couple hour job.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey thanks for posting on my thread about my gauges in my 98 190. I saw that you replaced your clock with a depth finder. I really want to do that. Was it hard?

    It's about a 8 year old Ronix womens board. It is basically white with gold trim, bottom is black with gold trim/markings. The boots match and are close toed. I'll get the model this weekend. Don't need new/new boots, just ones that will work that are basically white. I found the board in the attached link.


    It's older than I thought.

    When you're getting boots for a board you want to watch 2 things. First is the thread count. Older boards use 1/4" x 20 bolts. Newer boards use M6 bolts. If you try to force them, you'll mess up the threads in the board, then your board is done. The second is the spacing between the bolt holes. Old boards used 8", all new stuff is 6". Newer Hyperlite, Ronix, and Connelly use 6" spread and M6 bolts on their boards and boots.

    I work at a pro shop, we carry Hyperlite, Ronix, and Connelly. I have boots if you're interested. Not sure of your price range or colors you'd want. Most importantly, which Ronix board do you have? Do you know year and model?
