Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
Replaced the old and nasty white plastic box that housed the electronics at the helm station with a box I made from some scrap teak I got from a neighbor at the dock, a piece of plexiglass from Home Depot, and a couple of plastic cupholders from West Marine. Total cost was about $20 bucks, not including the ratcheting crimper I bought to make up the electrical connections in the box.
Man, that looks great! You have given me my next project!
