Are you going to use heat shrink labels or tab labels on the wire? Looking great

Yes I think it will be ok. my writting is so bad and even worse in conditions like that I use a label maker

I use a Panduit label maker they work well for me

Made the dual width helm seat then started to work on the stereo install this afternoon. The stereo should crank - 4 @ 400w 6x9 Pioneer speakers (two in the main cockpit and 2 in the aft deck) powered by a Pioneer 4 Chanel amp, 1 @ 12inch Subwoofer powered by a Pioneer Monoblock amp and a Bluetooth Pioneer Headunit.

Man I love the use of space, one suggestion if you don't mind, I would make the seat back so it folds forward, counter space is at a premium offshore. I have a huge galley and I run out of space before I even start cooking.

Just feel I should mention... you look like big guy in photos... enough [comfort-butt] room on seat? Stereo should crank ample power to fill the harbor! You're getting ever so closer and closer to SPLASH!!!

You might consider sound deadening material on the over head of the engine room too.

Show me where the wires to aft speakers are located so I can cut and remove 10 feet of wire. Or put a lockable on/off switch and volume control for the rear speakers.
