    Replace Carpet under Gunnel Area MA 18.5

    Pretty easy. I did mine myself before Seadeck was cutting templates. Remove the carpet — save for template , order the right sized seadeck. I used a bottle of contractors solvent ( Home Depot, Lowe’s ) , sprayed entire area let it sit then scraped it. Dried the area applied windex made sure all good. Cut my template, sprayed w windex again, applied — been six years now.

    live well

    Only when livewell in use? My 18 had similar weep of water, it was the trim tab panels and the screw holes. Once siliconed water intake was gone and no water. Drove me nuts until I figured out.

    Is that seadeck console cushion a custom or did seadeck have that available? Great boat. GLWS.

    birdsall backrest

    9 I find perfect , if you use live well or move around the taller is waaaayyyy too tall. I'm 6'1 220 it hits me just right in lower backer when seated.

    21' Maverick Poling Platform

    I like the color, don't see many like it. Great boat-- and better to have the platform then not. Better to fish from when in an inlet or anchored up or in the rough, otherwise you end up grabbing the cowling, good place to sit when relaxing etc......

    You probably mean for all the other hatches, but this is a Perko. SouthCo used to make some nice products but issue was the depth of the latches. You might be able to rig something between the Perko and SouthCo one might work. Check GemLux also, other boat has them as well. Good luck

    Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    59 w a 21p merc. Mirage plus w 1 " taken out so a 20". But the feel good prop all around is a 19 P merc mirage plus. 54-55 mph light load max. , but the 19 seems like a big hole shot difference . Whole head was exchanged local marina did work after I found hydro tec. Can't beat it from my experience. It jumps on plane. Good luck can't go wrong.

    Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    Year 5 or 6 on a new Powerhead with reeds, etc forget which phase kit on a Vmax OX66 150. Its on a MA18 I believe it puts out over 180hp. Based on the hole shot and performance I would hate to have to strap a 4 stroke on it one day. Probably 500 plus hours since new powerhead.

    18MA VS 18 EGRET

    Splitting hairs. But you ll save a lot of $$ going for the MA 18 if clean. IMO the E18 isnt worth the addl $ they want for them. Both are flats / bay boats that do a lot of things well.

    2002 MA latch hinges

    My 01 used Southco lathches to close all hatches. The lockable rod locker on Orr was a Perko lock.

    Keel Guard on MA17

    Gonna try this on my MA18----- There is a company called RSPro ( rail saver pro)-- I have no affiliation. It is a product used for SUP paddle boards that absorbs shock and protects the rail of the board from the carbon blade / paddle. and is thin protective, clear and adhesive--- but removable. It is basically helicopter blade tape made by 3m. I don't know if it can handle being bent in a deep angle , but gonna try it. Could be an excellent alternative.
