    Boat Covers

    My 1st HPS was Black hull, it needed a cover so the gelcoat wouldn't fade. I have one made in Fort Myers, it cost around 2K but it fits with or without trolling motor. I went with Black Sunbrella. I have had it on for Irma, and other storms, for 3 years and no fading or sign of deterioration. survived the wind and rain. Plus the cover extends down over to the hard chine..

    What Material for Full Cover

    Hey, Yes, those are the vents. As long there is a way to get air in it seems as if they really work.. I have an open area near the transom where the breeze get in.. Really helped alot with Gelcoat fading..

    2300 HPS Livewell Pump Help

    It sounds to me like the electrical supply is fine, you said you checked it. Are you trying to fill the bait well? Perhaps a bad switch on the dash?

    2019 22 TRS Engine choices

    When in doubt, HP it out!! I never heard anyone complain they had too much horsepower. I agree it's about "time to plane", and HP does it faster.. Good luck

    We used to do that to. after a bolt hit the mast near bermuda.. The grounding plate worked, luckily. I was 13 YO at the time, racing to Bermuda(crew) from Marion Conn.

I use it on a 60", but if i were to do it again, i would go with the 72". Providing the head of the unit is still inboard the gunwales.

    Wow!! Sorry to hear about this.. Did the sides flex a lot? Or did you hear anything snap? As an indication of stringer problems? FYI I had 2011 2300 HPS, with around 1000hours on it and not a problem..

    2300 hps bow rod holders

    I had 2 installed before I took delivery. Unfortunately, i can't take any pics right now, i am not near the boat, but they are mounted ahead of the hinges of the hatches in the gunwale.
