I don’t think it is a broken piece. Too smooth every where.
As to the switch covers, I wish I could take credit. See this thread.
I live on Martin. It can get busy on the weekends, but any Bennington 24 feet and up handles it well.
We have a 250, but we also have a nautique for the tubing, etc. A 250 would probably work, but a 300 would be what I would want.
