Custom Ballistic 7.8 twin RigVideo Transcript
Hi I’m Tom, and I’m sat onboard our Ballistic 7.8 custom build twin rig.

So, we got to the point now we’ve got the engines installed, we’ve got the power hydraulic steering all in. Just doing the final connections and the cowlings will go back on. Deck’s all down, it’s looking absolutely fantastic, controls are in, we’ve got the larger 12-inch plotter on this boat, the larger seven-inch display for the engine gauges and we’ve got the newest throttle controls from Yamaha. This is all drive by wire technology, lovely and smooth it’s gonna be absolutely fabulous to drive. Gauges are in, inside the console we’ve got a bit of rigging to finish off still. Got the main wiring looms we’ll get those connected up and then everything will be made nice and tidy. A twin-engine boat we’ve gone with a four battery installation giving that ability to operate both engines independently of each other and we’ve got some really neat custom-built battery boxes in here. The factory make a really lovely job of keeping this tidy and clean so that it’s easy to maintain. 
So, not long now. Seats will go on next week, get the tubes inflated and we’ll be out testing it.
