Help with PT175 recessed tray install

Recommended Posts

I just picked up an 06 Bass Tracker PT175 and it has an Ultrex but not a recessed tray for the foot pedal.  I noticed the ultrex pedal requires a bigger tray and was wondering if I have to worry about anything before I go cutting into my boat.  Im sure no electric runs through there but want to make sure I dont have to worry about a crossmember or something similar.  Anyone install on a PT before that can give me advice is highly appreciated!  Thanks

Do you know how to knock a wall for studs?  Maybe you can find a hollow sound or a thud, meaning a support is present.  

 

I have a different boat, but just cut the deck to install a tray.  Do you have a front hatch or plate screwed down where your wire is plugged into?  You can pull that up to have a feel around.  I just googled your boat and found some with a tray installed.  On my boat, 1 inch from the tray is where I started my cut.  I will a perfect cut and all work.  

 

Sorry I cannot help more, but I want to help if I can.  everyone who does it do not leave instructions, so I am writing up some for the heritage boat to help others.
