My blackout looks as good as day 1 (5 years old) barring a couple small scratches. As stated, black sharpie and all is good.
Can’t comment on saltwater. I wipe it down with lake water every week or 2 then hit it with Adams detail spray. Still good as new.

That was my concern. With the flip up section being so narrow it appeared there was the potential for issues. Perhaps the bolster buddy or raised helm will be the best route.
Based on your thoughts, I would encourage this train of thought. I like the raised helm: looks better and gives a few extra inches. It is also a more comfortable seat for most people. Pair it with a Bolster Buddy, and call it a day. ;):cool:

I have a blackout package. LOVE IT! Make the pontoon stand out from the crowd and looks sweet. Has been very durable over the 5 seasons we’ve had it. However, I am 100% freshwater, so no idea how it will perform long term in that environment. I lean towards it should be fine. Anodized aluminum, so I would expect it to hold up nicely, but then again salt water is rough on…everything.
