    Greetings fellow Shamrock owners. It's been a long time since I've been here, but recently started doing a lot of maintenance on my 270 Mac. Now I need to order a new stereo and forget what size the cutout is for the factory stereo. Does anybody happen to know ??
    My boat is currently in dry storage, so kind of inconvenient to go check right now.

    This is my original stereo which has been replaced. Unfortunately my boat is covered also but the new stereo was smaller than the original so my mechanic made a face plate which filled in the hole. If i can find a pic of that ill send it to you.

    That looks like 1.5 DIN.

    I'm not seeing the faceplate. Does the stereo faceplate cover it up?

    Cool ... Thanks ftu209! I looked up my boat original specs, and it came with a Clarion XMD1, so I know the size now. Looks like your stereo face is much larger than the original, so I'm thinking my new Clarion M608 I'm about to order should fit fine.

    Thanks again!
