I have a Ventura 210. Tonight I spent a little time sitting in the starboard console where the batteries are kept. Great amount of space in there. You've got to love the way Boston Whaler finishes these spaces.

My Ventura 210 is three years old with 140 hours. If the batteries are original do I replace them if they holding a charge?

When installing the GPS receiver, my tech guy is concerned that running the wires over the transom and into the outboard wiring harness will cause electronic noise to the GPS receiver. I know Tom (BluewaterPirate) did this on his boat. Not sure if having the Verado with SmartCraft gauges makes any difference. Any thoughts.

I have been very impressed with the rigging detail that I have seen on these new Boston Whaler boats. My impression is that the rigging is a first-class job that shows a lot of attention to detail.

The best place for discussion of electronics is SMALL BOAT ELECTRICAL.

I had a 180 Dauntless with 135 Verado and smartcraft. I pulled a transducer cable through the rigging tube and saw no issues with either the sounder or the engine.

About to do the same on my 210 Ventura.
