Hey guys, just wanted to show off my 2016 Pathfinder 2300 HPS.

This is my second 23 HPS. I love the boat hull design and ride, for the Tampa Bay and west coast of Florida this is the perfect boat for me to run offshore, across large bodies of water and still get into shallow flats and backwater.

Another beautiful rig!  The  acrylic lid is a nice touch.  I like what you did with the motor cowl.

Thanks guys, love the boat! @mulligan - I just like these motors without the decals, I think it looks much sleeker. :) How's the redfisher doing these days? Still running strong for ya I hope!

She still going strong as ever, has not missed a beat. Just finishing up some updating to give it another  good 10 years. Last on the list is  actually paint the cowl in the next week or so. That little scratch has always bugged me.

@AFE CUMMINS 6.7 - I had the livewell lid custom made here in Bradenton, FL. I took the current lid to the Acrylic guy and he cut and drilled, etc.

Then I got with Jerry @ Gemlux and he helped me find the right hardware for hinges and compression latch. It wasn't cheap and took some trial and error, but i love it so far. No complaints at this point. If you're interested you can call Chuck @ Water Way Systems his number is 941-779-4709. I'm sure he can make another and ship or any local acrylic shop should be able to do it.

Thanks!

Capt Jerome,

Chuck @ Water Way Systems made my lid, his number is 941-779-4709. I think any glass/acrylic shop should be able to do it for you.

I had to remove my original lid and take it with me to make sure we got the measurements exact. It also requires changing hardware as the new lid will not fit on the original hinges.

I want to say total costs were around $250. 

 

I've had it in place for about 1.5 years now and no complaints at all. I have had zero problems with it being slippery. The first couple months I was super careful not to walk on it or scratch it, but over time I didn't worry about it as much. Now I don't even think about it, I walk on it and use it like any other hatch. It does have some light surface scratches which actually came from the scrub brush when cleaning the boat. I haven't done it yet, but I am fairly certain I can buff them out with some rubbing compound. 

It's nice to be able to keep an eye on your bait and fish without constantly opening the lid to see.
