Just introducing myself. I found this site yesterday and figured I'd sign up as it seems like a lot of great information is going on. I fish a 21 Seaway that I bought last year. I put it in indoor storage last winter so did a bunch of work to it including Garmin electronics (touch screen is so nice), fuel sensor, through-hull transducer, battery charger, trim tabs, swivels, backing plates for all rod holders, dodger (what a great addition), and a boat load of LED lights. Anyway, looking forward to learning more about all of the different boats out there as I dream about the next Bean.

On the mooring with full canvas. BTW, the bracket on this boat makes a huge difference- it adds tons of room, and makes it feel like a 24.

It's a sneaky boat too- you can get right up on busting fish.

Cool LED lights on your boat! The bracket with swim platform is a useful addition. Nice!

Care to share some info on your LED and underwater lights as well? Thinking about adding some this year to my General Marine 26.
Sorry for the delay in response, I was traveling this week. The LEDs in the water are mounted on the trim tabs (I installed trim tabs because at high RPMs I was getting prop torque that dropped the port bow down) so I didn't have to drill any additional holes in the boat. The install was a kit, and was super easy.


The cockpit lights were a bit more involved but were still straight forward. I contacted Rob Konikoff ([email protected]) and had him make up a custom run of LEDs for me. He made up a single run of lights/leads with a 15' run of wire, 5' of lights, 4' of wire, 6' of lights, 4' of wire, and 5' of lights. I then brought the lead up through the starboard transom and ran them up around from stern to bow (starboard side) and then back down from bow to stern on the port side. The lights themselves are run by a remote that can switch between red, white, and blue.
