  • Are there any Sea Cat owners out there?

    Of course, I mean the boat. I own a Sea Cat 226 DC with twn Suzuki DF140's and am looking to trade insights with other owners. I have done some modifications and plan others and would like information and feedback on my plans. Hope to hear from someone,sometime!!

      Capt. Phil;

      Sorry I missed your reply. I am glad to hear from someone that owns the same boat as mine.

      So far I have made the following mods to our boat;

      1.I added a house battery in the helm console.
      2.Had a pulpit put on by the manufacturer in Titusville, with a roller and then
      had to put a rubberized bed liner coating on it to protect the gelcoat.
      3.Put a built-in 3 drawer tackle box in the Head console.
      4.Replaced the bilge pumps, they broke from the strain from the hoses, with
      Rule 1100 gal. automatics, with a cut-off switch so they would not run
      while on the trailer.
      5.Mounted an auxilliary speaker for my VHF on the 1/2 tower by my ear.
      6.Had a full enclosure made that goes from the forward edge of the 1/2
      tower to the front edge of the bow seating area, and all around the sides
      and back.
      7.Horns.
      8.GPS and VHF
      9.4 step fold down ladder, w/platform.
      10.Instrument panel cover to hide the electronics.
      11.Snap on covers for the cupholder compartments, and a covered plug for
      the helm cupholder, to keep water out of the inside.
      12.Covers for the rod holder compartments to "hide" their contents.
      13.Locks for the rod holders to protect the rods from theft.
      14.Installed Vent Whistles on the fuel vent lines.
      15.Moved the starboard fuel vent to the port side, so I could hear the Vent
      Whistle while filling.
      16.Turned the battery doors upside down to make access easier.
      17.Installed special keyed "anvil" locks on the battery compartment doors and
      helm door so as to secure the contents.
      18.Put battery selector and cut-off switches in battery compartments.
      19.Now I can carry spare props and filters in battery compartments.
      20.Installed KeelGuards to protect the keel from beaching. Also protected the
      keel from being damage when I ran aground on hard pan.
      21.Carry a Magma grill for BBQing on board.
      22.Built-in PFD compartment into the 1/2 tower.
      23.Dive tank ranks

      Want to install;
      1.A fan to relieve fogging in the enclosure.
      2.An anchor winch
      3.A spotlight.

      I'm sure there are other things I would like, but I haven't thought of them yet.
      We use our boat mostly for cruising, and overnight trips, with occasional fishing and diving.

      I hope this finds you. I am going to leave a PM just in case.
