    Replacement Carpeting Related Questions

    I work part time for a canvas guy, I can ask him where he gets his snaps, and how many you have to by. I will also ask his opinion on the binding, I think that he tries to get matching colors, and I believe that it is Sunbrella. What color snap are you looking for? Denny.
  3. It is kinda neat. Cuts his hole, inserts a fiberglass tub and glasses it in, piece of cake, should only take you a couple of hours. Denny.

    2000 235ssi seat material required

    Look up your local boat canvas people, and they will be able to duplicate the design, and will get the colors as close as possible. Denny.
  5. Speaking about checking things out, I seen this at a marina that we were at today and immediately though you and your new upcoming adventure. This is on a 42 footer, to the tune of around 12G's, give or take. Denny.

    Bow Seat back cushion removal

    It can be held in a number of ways. If you can get at it form underneath, it maybe held in with screws . If not then they sometimes have corner straps that are sewn on to the underside of the cushion and held on with snaps. And another way, is with velcro. If you cannot get at it from the bottom start lifting the corners. Finally, if there are cushions on either side of it, take your hands and spread them apart, and look for tinny holes along the sides, if there then it was held in from the top with phillip screws, locate them and unscrew them, and your cushion will come out. Good luck. Denny.
  7. WoW! What a gorgeous piece of art work, going to take me a little while to bring my teak up to that level. It might be easier to mount it in its own glass cabinet, and just show it. Sure is going to turn some eyes. Denny.

    Tachometer replacement question

    You may have to take out the storage compartment first. Denny.
  10. Go to a boat canvas place, and they can make you a new one. Denny.

    Ever witness a boating accident?

    It was probably do to the angle of the boat in relationship to the water. Not sure if it added any extra tongue weight, all the load was at the back of the boat, need someone like Dennis A to decipher that. I drew the line helping another boater out of big waves and shallow water, when I touched bottom a number of times myself. It was all I could do to prevent beaching my own boat. The water was so shallow, I'm talking a couple of feet, that I had the outdrive almost in the full trailer position. The problem I had was I had no one to throw a line while I operated the boat, so I had to do both. Everything was happening so fast, could not keep up. Felt bad, but he eventually go out. He had thrown out a anchor, but it wasn't holding. Been there, done that, and that is one of the reasons that I have the anchor that I have. Denny.

    Broken flip-up bolster replacement

    Take the seat apart to where you can see and get at the back side of the hole the screw made. Enlarge that hole to a 5/16 hole and put a S.S.T-Nut in it and then run a S.S.1/4-20 bolt in it. They come with either hex or phillips heads. And as Hatem said use only S.S. staples. I have taken many apart. Denny.

    Water in bilge

    Normal is none during the dry spells, do Shepherds suggestions. When do you notice it, before running or after. Dry it complete and then go from there. Just sitting in the water, then sitting with the engine running, and finally your normal running. This will help you determine when it gets wet. When it comes to boating, there are no stupid questions, only stupid unsafe people that operate boats. Denny.
  14. Great choice on the varnish. All I have ever used on the teak is Sikkens, a little slow drying, but very durable, and easy to repair. I trust your judgement, I know that you will figure out a way to make it secure and permanent. The main issue, made in China, metric, verses US standard. That nightmare started for me in the automotive end in 1982. Denny
