Looks like you have a pretty good list going. If you getting your switches done on the inside of the glove box make sure you specify to have the kill switch put on the outside if you plan on using it. I made that mistake and when I fish tournaments I have to ride with my glove box open to use the kill switch. I'd also recommend going with the two tone awlgrip. It looks nice and helps when it's time to wash the boat.

Congrats on the ECS build getting started. Pretty exciting, I know! Looks like you have got it spec'ed out nicely.

I have heard great things about East Cape and how they handle their business, going as far as welcoming "pre owned" EC skiff purchasers to the "EC Family". Pretty classy in my book.

The financing is done and now I am waiting on the build. I am looking forward to watching as she comes together. I have spent a couple years researching the build and waiting for the right time to pull the trigger. This is my retirement gift. The countdown has begun, once she is paid off I can retire.

Keep 1 for GPS/Chart, use the other for gauges, Sonic Hub, sonar, etc. If I remember right, the price difference between qty 2 7" and qty 1 9" isn't much.
Exactly. The XSRs can be networked with the MotorGuide Xi5 GPS with the software upgrade. I have already upgraded the XSRs.

I sent my RSVP form Sep 4th, 2018. Kevin introduced me to a lender offering 3.99% interest.
Cool , I sent mine in Early October. The wait is killing me. Did he tell you how long it takes to complete after it hits the mold?

I just sold my old boat so the wait is harder now. I think the build will be completed by the end of April. I am waiting on the next step which I believe is working with Adam on some of the finer details of the build.

Looking forward to your build pics. I sold my boat in November, didn’t expect it to go that quick .

This should be good. I am considering an EVO for my next boat after my Vantage.
