    Using bleach to clean the boat seats

    You can put Vaseline on the threads to protect from bleach or Marine 31. Easy to remove after cleaning. Before Marine 31 I would soak paper towels in a bleach mix and let them set on the mildew areas for a 5 minutes. No scrubbing and kept water and rags near by in case some of the mixture got...

    SIMRAD GO 7 Sun Cover

    A local sign shop gave me a sample piece of static cling to try. The only colors they have are white and clear. It looks like it will stay on while under way if I wanted. When not in use you could cling it to the helm under the steering wheel. They said they could color it for ~$20. I'm...

    SIMRAD GO 7 Sun Cover

    It will not fit. Even if I trimmed the top edge to fit under the dash shade, the Simrad cover is too wide and too thick to fit in the recessed mount.

    SIMRAD GO 7 Sun Cover

    My dash is like yours. I just ordered another cover from Amazon to see if it will. The first one was too big. I think if I get the right one it will be too tight of a fit on the top side so I might trim it to fit. If it doesn't fit, I can ship it back to Amazon at no charge.

    I've had good luck with Hot Sauce water spot remover. The bass guys in my area swear by it. After a couple of uses it helped to prevent new water spots.

    water spray guard

    After I put the Atlas jack plate on, the water was spraying forward 2' inside my center rear door when running between 20 & 30 MPH. I made splash guards out of 1/4" lexan to stop the water from spraying. While I had the boat at a local welder for other work, I had him take my lexan guards and...

    Under deck “block”

    I could feel a jerk when water from a wave would hit the plate so I had a local welder tack on a few pieces. He had to do it while the boat was on the trailer and not much room to work.

    Kicker KMC10 question

    Curved Bimini Vrs Standard?

    jhill and Potomacbassin, thanks for the info. I looked at part number 012280 today at a dealer and the pins were ~ 1.25" long. On my 2020 Bennington, they need to at least 2.0" long. I asked the sales manager about them and he said Bennington changed to a wider frame/bracket, but didn't say...
