Here is the install of my Arco trim and bucket..... Unreal reverse trimmed up full it pulled the boat off the bank hard enough that you need to hold on.... I am very happy with the performance. I can get on step quickly with just cruise RPM and very very fast at WOT.

A few updates to the Flussgott..... Soundproofing and mufflers - this combo makes the boat very quiet. I'm not a big fan of loud exhaust especially in a boat meant mostly for hunting and fishing. At idle the fuel pump is pretty annoying so that will be the next item that gets a little more soundproofing. At cruise you can carry on a conversation without straining to hear. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It also makes everything a lot cleaner.......

Lots of storage...that is a 210L rubbermaid bin (55gal for you fellas south of the border) and there is still 10" of storage on top and behind the bin.

3/8" plywood was used as a temporary measure. I have not decided if I will use marine ply or 100 wall yet......

Used compressor room foam to soundproof the engine compartment.

Soundproofing of engine compartment. 2" on the top and 1 1/2" on three sides.

Air filter outside of soundproofed engine compartment. Should get colder air and slightly better performance...

They made a huge difference in noise. Since the boat is a V6 it sounded like a rice fired lawnmower so mufflers were a must. Also I live close to the river and hate the whine of sport jets and the absolute unnecessary noise of a V8 without any sound suppression. Guys may get pissed off at this but there is a huge lack of consideration for the non-jet boating crowd when it comes to noise...... That matters when it comes to public opinion....

Nice work on the sound deadening, I'm looking to do something similar in the coming weeks. Do you have a source in PG for the foam you used?

Stemco makes a sound deadening foam for under truck hoods. It has aluminum foil on one side, dual layer foam with a membrane in the centre. You can order it at any truck supply shop. CBS, Napa etc.

I'm sorry but the foam came from a friend of a friend. No Idea where to source it.

Some upgrades to the Flussgott
Attachments
dayout.jpg
Well its boating season up here in the north again..... so it was time to get into a few refinements on my boat. Nothing like a ride up to the ice in a friends boat to get me thinking of all the stuff I need to get sorted on mine.
axe.jpg
I started to get tired of the rod trays being full of junk so I decided to do something about it. I used sikaflex on this one..... This is my boat axe being stored in the stern in an "Axe Mate"..... just keeps it tidy and out of the way......
extinguisher.jpg
Well onto the safety equipment.... I used two Quick Fist mounts to mount my fire extinguisher on the drivers side under the dash. (Never mind the wiring....its being pulled apart to install a Sport Jet 270 helm.) I figure by putting it here I have the best access to it....
dash2.jpg
I put non skid mat down on both sides of the dash. I think it looks alright and keeps things from sliding around. I also got the stereo hooked up. The hatch just above the step for the walkthrough gives access to a 55" long storage locker meant for keeping my rifles in when heading hunting. Nice way to keep them clean, dry and accessible.....
glovebox.jpg
Got a little OCD here, but it was nice to get all the spare fasteners and fittings organized. Also lined the glove box with non slip mat.
highrail2.jpg
This rail will be used to support the back half of my camper top when it gets made. Will be just the right height for sleeping under......
highrail1.jpg
Completed high deck rail. This rail is removable and I have come up with a solution to cover the holes as well but I will show that in a later post....
chain2.jpg
Mounted my small saw to the "Gun Tunnel" This is just two 2"x6" blocks of 1" UHMW with the bar dipped through them and a strap to hold the saw in place. If you look hard you can see the UHMW blocks up on the bar
chain1.jpg
The saw is attached to the forming that makes up the "Gun Tunnel" this forming makes the storage area that is accessed through the hatch just below my walk through windshield.

Nice looking setup! I've just recently seen the Arco reverse bucket. Where did you buy it? I found it on a New Zealand trading site, but the site is only for New Zealand. Thanks for any info.
