Used Boat With "upgrades" (Before/after Pics)

Recommended Posts

Some of you may have read the thread about me buying a used boat. I ended up with a 1996 Stratos 288 VR. It is 18'3" with a 150 Evinrude. It drove great and everything checked out good. It came with HDS 8 and HDS 5 with Structure Scan. I was able to get it at a price I was comfortable with. As with anything, there were some "upgrades" that I wanted to make.

 

First were the seats

Then the steering wheel

Thanks man! That something i havent thought of doing. I like your seats alot too, mine are the originals in a 1996 Javelin and they dont have the first crack in them, i mean they are in excellent condition...i want to "update" them but i really have no reason other than wanting something a little sexier.

Super nice tho!, any other upgrades coming soon?

I put new wheels on the trailer. Cut the windshield down a bit. Put some floor graphics on. Replaced the TM handle with a T-H marine G-man handle (it is sweet). I put new butt seats and a new rod holder that is retractable and is flush mount with the deck.

I got them off ebay. The guy has quite a few on there. They are high quality graphics. I gave roughly $36 a piece for them.
