It's a stainless steel restaurant heavy table base and a teak top, all bought online.
That looks great, and thanks again Jon. I try and see if I can find that one, or something similar.
Would anyone have pics of the windshield sun cover and how it’s held in place. I want to see one up this winter as I hear sitting behind the glass can be like a greenhouse. May just tint sides and do front window only.
Here is where I bought my base. https://tablebases.com/table-bases?material=134
thank you Jon!
tinted window helped this summer. I have windshield covers and they just snap on . On the outside.
The Tinted windows do make seeing things at night and dusk more difficult
My side windows are tinted as well. I do not have any problems seeing at night since my front windshield is not tinted. I have a buddy that has his mesh screen secured by magnets from the inside. That set up works very well for him.
I need to replace my lower cockpit carpet anyone have thoughts or suggestions on the process of creating the template that the nationwide companies require?
That looks great, I would like to do something similar for the upper cockpit.
How long do raw water hoses and other hoses on the engines last? How often do you guys change them?
I need to replace about 4' of rub rail on the swim platform due to the former owner backing it into something, and cracking it badly. I've tried TACO marine, and a few others with no luck. Do you any of you know where to source it, or have any to spare?
I just replaced a 12ft section of the stainless rub rail insert, and it was Taco Marine, purchased from West Marine. 3/4"H x 5/16"W Hollow Back. It was an exact replacement.
Here's the link:
Looking on the Taco Marine site, I am quite certain this is what you are looking for:
All orderable through West Marine. Similar to you, the previous owner of my boat let the boat rub up against something metal in a storm, it even pushed the entire rubrail down an inch. I will warn you that the stainless screws holding the plastic rubrail to the fiberglass are 3-4" long and easily break while trying to remove them, ask me how I know. I wound up using a mallet and block of wood to get it aligned back up to perfect. But I suspect the screws around the swim platform may be much shorter, the section I replaced was up by the Nav Lights.
Hope this helps.
Don't discount your local Sea Ray dealer... I had to replace a 8' section of rub rail for same reason and the Sea Ray dealer was very reasonable and in stock and without shipping issues
Thank you for your replies. I'll check the measurements to see if that profile will match. I'm really hoping this is the answer! Also, I did call my local Sea Ray dealer and they said they had a falling out with TACO and wouldn't be able to help.
question for you experenced 48DA owners: how many adults are you comfortable with sleeping aboard for a weekend?
While my boat has many sleeping options it will only sleep two people at any one time
It depends how well you know the adults. I would say the max is 6, a couple in the forward state room, a couple in the aft and you could have another couple on the pull out couch. Ideally 4 not using the pull out couch.
Thanks! Im thinking my wife and I most of the time. On occasion our two adult children and their BF,GF or later on their spouses. Stirkes me that things may get very crowded on anything other than weekend jaunts.
4 adults Max for comfort. We only sleep kids or one small adult on the pull out couch.
Very comfortable with two couples, have taken week long trips with two couples. My opinion putting another couple on the salon pullout would make it very cramped as well as uncomfortable for all. Especially if the bathroom needs to be accessed in the middle of the night or early morning, I would say all should be very comfortable with one another.
