Re: New Carpet without Glue???

...I have "seagrass" carpet in my boat that's held down with snaps. Snaps are not hard to install so maybe it's the way to go. I like the sound of that but I haven't been to any dealers or boat shows to see what this looks like. What's beneath your fence rails if they're not bolted through the carp...

Re: Toon covers

Before spending $1400 on a custom playpen cover I would suggest looking up seller "canvasguy2077" on eBay--Andy. This is formerly American Canvas Products, Inc. that made OEM covers for several boat mfrs. for a couple decades. Andy can send you a diagram where you fill in all the important dimension...

Re: Bimini Top position while trailering

If you pull the pin on the rear arm will your bimini frame lay flat on the back fence? My Sweetwater does--but overhangs about a foot. The bimini might be dealer-installed so YMMV. For winter storage I disconnect the short rear strut & swing the frame over the front half of the boat. The wires at th...

Re: What to use of outboard quits

Sometimes the nearest shoreline is rubble, cliffs, snags, or swamp. You definitely want the ability to move & navigate some distance if the lake isn't fully developed flat shore.

Holly molly - - Wiskey Trip on that link - - I'd be surprised if skiers can even hear the engine over the music with all those speakers.
Wow...a rig like that would have a few holes under the waterline in the morning at my quiet lake.

Some things aren't meant to be put in the rear...including speakers.

In the years I've been on this forum I don't believe I've ever seen a discussion on why deck boats get a bad rap. My boss at work is considering a used one--what should I tell him?

It was my understanding that this product IS NOT A BLEACH. That’s why I bought it. This from their website: “Marine 31 Mildew Remover quickly and safely removes stubborn mildew stains on virtually all marine surfaces, including vinyl seat cushions, rubber fenders, fiberglass, gel coat, canopies, an...

Re: Heard of Easy Cover?

I really like the idea of not messing around with a mooring cover. My boat is at a cottage & sits on the water all season and is covered while I'm away. Every time I go to uncover it's soaked with dew and the seats are also soaked due to lack of ventilation. My previous 'toon didn't have nice seats ...

Re: Heard of Easy Cover?

It's a full-length canopy that drops to cover the top of the fence to keep out the elements. In use it will open stacked to cover only the rear, or fully to cover the entire boat. Operates electrically, by remote. Small website , small distribution, Michigan company. LOVE the idea but I'm sure I'll ...

Re: How many of us are running a dual battery setup?

Glad I switched back to a 2-battery setup. I hadn't used my boat since July 4th but found the battery dead this weekend--even though it was switched OFF. It would have been a bummer having to wait several hours for it to charge before I could take it out. AND now I can't trust THAT battery.

Re: Trolling motor update

A couple months ago I watched a guy (by himself) launch a bass boat....he backed in and pulled out without getting out of his pickup....went and parked his rig then walked down to the dock, climbed in and took off...impressive. Are you saying he backed it off the trailer, held position by the ramp,...

Re: Smelly Dog

What about all those shampoos & body washes hunters use to eliminate body scent? I bought a bottle of Remington scent-removing wash years ago based on an article that claimed it was even great at removing skunk smell from a dog. Fortunately I've never needed it.
