    I have been busy doing several conversions the last several months and have not had time to work on my personal SUV conversion.
    I have a trip planed to the Florida Keys in October and I would like to get the tubing work done and the canvas top made.
    I have done some modifications to the new aluminum trailer and making sure that it is road ready.

      The Lowrance HDS 7 has quit working, it will not power on. I got a HDS 7 GEN 3 to replace it with and have installed the (2) transducers and the point-1 antenna.

        I got the top back today and it looks great. I got it installed and wired up the Point-1 antenna for the Lowrance HDS 7 GEN III.
        I have also installed a all around anchor light and front red and green running lights.

          I have installed a splash guard on the front bow of the ski. We will see if this makes the SUV any dryer.

            The splash guard dose make a big difference. It blocks allot of the water spray that would normally hit me and get my glasses wet.

          HI everyone,
          it has been a while since I have used my SUV and I want to start using it again. Since my Last post I have added a new
          Navico B75M 600W Bronze Thru-Hull Transducer providing Traditional and CHIRP Sonar for my HDS Gen 3. I have also rebuilt the jet unit replacing the seals and bearings. I have also installed a new intermediate bearing and housing.

            and that is all. The worst of the worst.

                    This ski has a Lowrance HDS7 Gen 3 matched with a B75M transducer and the compass antenna.
                    I have two batteries with a battery switch to control them.
                    I have a VHF radio with a full size antenna.
                    The 2003 SUV is sitting on a 2013 Continental trailer I bought new.
                    I have a cannon down-rigger mounted the left side.
                    This SUV has the 30 gallon fuel tank.
                    This SUV has a 2005 FX HO Crusier 4-stroke engine with new fuel rail, injectors and throttle body.
                    The engine has only 255 hours on it.
                    It has a new Hydro-Turf seat cover.
                    This hull is in excellent shape. This is the best SUV hull that I have seen.
