    TRUST ME, REMOVE IT!! Last year I did it installed like we've done for numerous years. Got a little heavy on the edges at the seats, it bled through the cover, onto the seats, and basically melted the vinyl leaving run marks where it ran down the vinyl. It's almost not noticeable now, but I almost puked when I saw it the first time. I thought my seats were toast.

    I recently purchased a 2015 20SL and I love my boat. The only problem I have is there is mold on the bimini. I have tried to was and scrub it, but with little success. Does the warranty cover mold as discoloration? Any suggestions as to how to clean the mold from the bimini?

    I don't see that being a covered warranty item as it is not a manufacturers defect.

    It's part of the 5 year warranty and is warranted against excessive loss of color and deterioration.
