I'll chime in, and support the NO HOLES IN COCKPIT camp... ESPECIALLY on a 23 foot boat!

I installed a stereo for a guy on a 20' center console, only because I owed him a favor, and he already had the stereo and speakers. I swore that I would NEVER do that again - what a total PITA, for no practical gain. Here is a tip - TRIPLE check the clearances for everything, and have some Starboard ready just in case.

Get a 12V boom box if you must have tunes in the cockpit.

I did not mean any offense in my prior posts, but simply wanted to point out the most cost effective solution to adding cockpit sound to a 23 foot boat; boom box: $40-$140, no installation required, no holes in boat, when it stops working (and they all will - even an installed stereo), simply buy a new one.
