Bryan, I am so sorry not to have gotten back to you. We have been busy and tonight is the first time in over a month that I have checked the site. We are a Watkins 25' built in 1987 in Largo Florida near Tampa. We have 535 watts of solar panels mounted above the cockpit enclosure, a water maker, 50 watt 5 CD changer stereo and an Engel freezer, 40 gal built in water tank and an 18 hp Nissan outboard as main engine. Carry our 9.5' Avon Dinghy with 5 hp Merc in davits on the stern. Pics on this site. Specs and more are available at watkinsowners.com
"Hi Karen, our names are Wayne & Monique, we live in Queensland Australia and 2 years ago purchased a Cascade 36. We have been fitting out the boat since, hopefully in the water late April to early May. Our boat is no 17 out of the mould…"
"Thanks guys! Cam - I'm heading to West Marine soon (don't have one close by, unfortunately), and I see that they have quite a few fusion speakers for sale - any chance you recall the size and model number that you used? No…"
"I installed a pair of Polk speakers in the cockpit. They fit where the stock units were and had much better sound. They were also water proof. We had the boat for 8 years and they still looked and sounded good.
Has anyone replaced/upgraded their cockpit speakers? The grill for one of mine is broken and they sound pretty terrible regardless, so it's time for an upgrade. I'd prefer to find something that fits the original footprint if possible.I'm open to any suggestions you may have about improving the audio quality both in the cabin and in the cockpit. Thanks in advance for your help!See More
