Peter glad to see you got it fixed. Yes the boats and systems are very similar. BTW if that fuse continues to blow it's likely your exhaust fan motor. I know from experience haha.

Pieter, there is a 10Amp fuse that also is connected to the battery isolator for the house bank. It's located in the battery compartment under the seat in the aft cabin. Look on the right side near the back and in the vicinity of the rear most isolator. It's possible that there is some corrosion or other issue. Reseating the fuse may help. When you turn on the ignition switch you'll energize both the fan and the isolator.
Good luck and let us know how you make out.

"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.  Good luck Mike"

Cockpit Speakers - Audio Upgrade

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
