Re: Looking for restoration company central Florida

Looks like Van Wagoner Boats in Clearwater gets some good reviews, honestly deck restoration and furniture is not that hard to do, everything just screws and bolts together you could save a ton doing some or most yourself, then get someone for the wiring etc.. there's no special skills like there is...

Re: Panel corrosion

I've been a Navy aircraft equipment mechanic my entire life (38 years so far) plus boats, I know corrosion like that only gets worse and worse, I actually didn't expect them to jump so quickly at it, and it's not just the aluminum panel, they order and replace everything as a unit in whole sections,...

Re: Panel corrosion

Paradise Marine in Gulf Shores has been great, I've only had a few warranty issues and they were all cosmetic, but never once questioned. My speakers with LEDs in them, some of the LEDs went out. They shipped me 4 new speakers to my house.

Panel corrosion

2015 BERKSHIRE 231 RFC. The picture is showing small blistering corrosion where the box tube meets the panel. The water gets trapped there. Kudos to my dealer Paradise Marine in gulf shores AL. They are replacing ALL the panels on the boat under warranty. Something to keep your eyes on if you're ope...

Re: Advice on Crest Savannah Tritoon

Have they identified the problem? Are they confident of the fix, maybe waiting on parts? If they fix your new boat and everything works as it should they should compensate you for your lost time with the boat, something like a couple annual services paid for, or some additional accessory that you mi...

Re: Gps/fish finder install

Marc is correct, just grab a hot wire in your helm (either "Hot Key On" or "Hot Always") your choice. my only advice is use a waterproof fuse holder, the inline ones that the old glass fuses go in and twist to lock can become problem areas down the road after some time. http://www.genuinedealz.com/a...

Re: How are helm seats mounted?

I have seen thru bolting also I have seen toggle nuts, and even threaded inserts, I would try and back one out a little and see if there are threads or a screw, worst case scenario is you use a large hole saw underneath the area to drill an access hole, get a piece of compatible aluminum, cut a larg...

Re: Great Weekend

Great pics. Ain't it great that we live where we can boat all year round !! Know it gets cooler in the panhandle as lived around Carrabelle for bit but still beats the latitudes further north. Life is too short to be inside looking at snow and cold when you could be chasing dolphins and drinking a ...

Great Weekend

Well after a week of rain and cold, the weekend is looking very good with sun and mid 60s. The Gulf was smooth as a pond and the island was pretty much deserted so the dogs could really romp and play, and the dolphin’s were enjoying it also.

Re: lifting nacelles for pontoon boats

(deck boats)...who have owned them were seeming glad to be rid of them ... 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? Deck boats get a bad review mostly from pre...
