Best idea wins a free San Francisco Bay guided tour and lunch! Engines are twin Evinrude E-TEC 200-HP. So many holes.

For the three large holes--I assume they are 3.5-inch diameter--I suggest:

PORT RPM Gauge (ICON Pro)--GARMIN GMI 20 Color Display-- STARBOARD RPM Gauge (ICON Pro)

For the numerous 2-inch holes, I suggest:

For the top row of four holes

--(2) water pressure (ICON Basic)
--(2) engine temperature (ICON Basic

For the next row of two holes to right of wheel:

--BAT 1 Voltmeter (ICON Basic)

--BAT 2 Voltmeter (ICON Basic)

For the bottom row of two holes to right of wheel

--FUEL TANK 1 LEVEL (ICON Basic)

--FUEL TANK 2 LEVEL (ICON Basic)

(I am assuming two fuel tanks; if only one tank, then perhaps have two oil reservoir tank level gauges.)

For under the remote throttle and shift controls:

--(2) TRIM gauges (ICON BASIC)

Will the first generation E-TEC work with the new ICON TOUCH instrumentation display? If so and depending on your budget I would cover the holes with grey/white colour starboard material and mount one of these 7inch displays on it.

Maybe Pete is going to re-power with Evinrude E-TEC G2 200-HP engines.

No budget for G2 units. ($40k+?)

I did see a pair of G2s when I went to pick up the 60deg motors for the Outrage.

They are massive, really really large. I was surprised, they look smaller in photos. Bolted on a 30ft boat with an Armstrong bracket (a new inboard conversion), still looked huge.


I am not opposed to a single glass dash option. My thought was an old school look. Jim's GMI20 suggestion sort of mixed old and new up. The chart plotter / fish finder would have done that anyway.
