    Bimini pole replacement

    Tonight our bimini met a tragic end. Need new poles (canvas is fine). Best place to buy? Or do I need to replace the whole thing (canvas and all)?

    Bimini cover extension (visor connection)

    2012 SSI Wide tech NO TOWER model Looking for clear, see through plastic connection to attach via zipper from our bimini top to the windshield for ability to drive in rain. Suggestions on where to start looking, or would this be a custom product? I have to believe it was an option when purchasing new as the zippers are already on the front part of the bimini. Help appreciated from this wet boater!

    Drilling Fender Holder Help Please!

    Wing nut you saved the day. Wing nut you are a GENIUS! The drilling went smooth (WHEW), the adhesive is amazing, the fender clips are literally the best I have had in 30 years of boating. Trust me, we have tried everything. I know drilling into your boat is scary, but sometimes it makes life better. We had 25 MPH winds, our boat tied to the dock this weekend at a bar, and the fenders did not move even with getting slammed nonstop. Wingnut, I owe you a beer!

    Drilling Fender Holder Help Please!

    By God you are RIGHT! Small panels come off to allow access. YOU ROCK WINGNUT! 3M - 5200.....Is this caulk? This goes on the backside of the flat clip like glue?

    Drilling Fender Holder Help Please!

    Thank you Wingnut! So no need to worry about finding something solid to drill through? We only get one chance to do this, and we are screwed if this does not work. "How do you like our new boat with holes in it?!"

    Drilling Fender Holder Help Please!

    Putting some new metal fender clips on our 2012 226 SSI today. What do we need to know when drilling into the gelcoat (I am sick just typing that!) Are there "solid" areas that a screw can bite? Help for this newbie appreciated!! ASAP!

    2012 226 ssi anchor missing

    I am a newbie to this board - lost a big Chap in a divorce and am starting small again with the 226 that I picked up this spring. Looking for a replacement anchor for a 2012 226 ssi. It fits in a locker so I need the exact anchor size that came with the boat. Any help is appreciated.
