    Here's an idea. Nauticalcross fender cleats for rod holders are $99. Maybe there's a less costly, yet similar design possibility. Maybe there's also somebody out there with a 480 besides me who is tired of using a mop handle to tie fenders off to at the stern.

    Wow, you have SR emblems on your cleats AND rod holders?

    Yes. Pretty common I thought.

    For Todd... I'm also looking for a high quality stainless steel cup holder that can attach to the front bow pad railing that many of us have on our SR's. [See picture] I see some newer models with it welded right on. Something like this, but more reasonable in price. http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1|406|319789&id=1747281 The molded in ones don't do the trick.

    Also Stainless Steel TV mounts for the cockpit. For a 19" flat panel. I know you can get them from SR but I think you could sell quite a few here.

    I like all of these ideas guys and will defintely look into those that make sense. I apologize for the delay in presenting this to you but it is much more complicated than the engine vents I recently offered.
    Ok, so here goes. These will be beautiful, 316 stainless, electro-polished and look and mount identically as the bolt pattern of the plastic Imtra/Lofrans cover. I will be offering the newer version offered on the '07 and newer Sea Rays soon.
    They will have a small magnet embedded in the lid lip that will keep the lid from flopping open while underway.
    The best price point I can offer will be if we get to an order of 100:
    So pricing goes as follows + sales tax and shipping:
    100ea= $197.60ea.
    75ea = $270.55ea.
    50ea.= $414.80ea.

    So obviously it serves all concerned best if we can get to 100 ea or 50 sets.
    To manage this better, I would love it if you're interested to post here so all can see the interest and we can keep a tally running but also send me an email @ todd.olason@vikingbay.co

    Thanks for looking and the interest. I can wait to see this "bow bling" on your guys' boats.

    Ow...

    I am in if you get to the 100 each/50 set price. Otherwise, I am going to have to wait for my great Uncle Ned to pass on and leave me some money.

    Thanks Rick.
    Yes, but they will be not only durable, but nice and shiny to compliment those with "Bow Bling" polished stainless anchors.
    I realize they are not cheap so I hope we get 50 sets ordered too.

    Todd, so these won't fit to replace what I have on my '08? I would definately be in at the lower price point, if they did fit. Thanks!!!

    Henry Boyd is kind enough to send me a cover for the newer model. It should be here in couple days and I will see what differences there are to warrant any price changes, if any and let you know.

    Todd,

    Is the pricing for each cover, or per pair?

    It's each. I wish I can get the pricing to be per pair, but there are a lot of processes these go through to get it high quality and to work nicely.
    I'm working on it to see how many orders I need to get to get the price point down further.

    $400 for a set is too salty for me right now. I'm out for now but maybe down the road? I think they will look nice though!

    Thanks all. I'll post an update as soon as I can. I understand at this price point it's high.

    Todd been watching your progress on the covers... quick question are they a solid piece of SS that is milled? Or is there an assembly?
