  • Looking for a boat pc worklog to point others to

    Hello
    I did a search and could not seem to find a worklog that has pics and things for a boat pc. I know quite a few boaters who ask about doing an install and I would like to point them to a worklog or two. Any suggestions?

    If someone would buy me a 25'/26' Baja Outlaw, or boat of similar setup, I would be more than happy to post the worklog.
    Play with it, 'til it's broke.

        I dont have a worklog but the Arc Audio boat I built (Loudest boat in the world) runs on a full blown PC. If you can find the episode somwhere you would have a half an hour log to look at. Show was on OLN and was called "Rock The Boat". I lost my DVD's so I have nothing from that show
        so if anybody finds it let me know.
        Google my name if you need to know who I am.

            I've never done a full blown worklog, but I have a BoatPC setup in my Baja 302.

            BoatPCs provide a little different challenge than cars, shutdown controllers aren't really set up for a boat applications, transflective is a must, and I've found that a powermate can be your friend when running across a chopped up lake at 60 mph.

            Hardware:

            Acer Power 1000 w/ 60G SSD
            Carnetix 2140
            External 200G 2.5 hard drive
            7" Transflective (for cockpit dash)
            22" LCD (for inside cabin with 12V input run from M2-ATX)
            Carnetix USB5V
            Griffin Powermate
            garmin GPS module using marine antennae on dash
            Directed HD radio (hardly use it)
            XM Direct (for remote lakes)
            USB video capture
            backup camera (looking at the outdirves)
            Fusion Brain (air and lake temps)
            FM transmitter (so other rafted boats can listen to my tunes)


            Software:

            Windows 7
            RideRunner
            DFX 4
            Google Earth

            Audio:

            4 qty 10" subs (under rear seat)
            4 qty 8" pioneer marine (cockpit)
            3 qty amplifiers
            2 qty 6.5" pioneer marine (cuddy w/ separate amp and volume knob)
            TruckPC - gutted, being used for test setup
            BoatPC - All in 1 in cuddy, N7 using VNC on dash, RR
            BlazerPC - Nexus 7 with Timur's USBROM

              I'm working on a buddy... 34' day cruiser, which they use for overnight trips. Has the generator and everything, so the PC would serve as the perfect media server for his application. However, high-technology isn't really his thing. (at least in this boat)
