Just bought an '04 AR230 and it has the cockpit cushion, but not the support poles. Wondering if anyone knows the dimensions of the poles (diameter and length)? I'm going to just use either dowel rods or PVC instead of buying them for $80 new. Unless someone has extras they'd like to sell?

What support poles are you referring to, specifically? The ones for the cover?

There is a foldable cushion that sits behind the 2 swivel chairs and fills the space of the rear to make a 'bed'. There are 2 support poles that are to sit in scalloped holders just under the lip of the cushions on either side of the rear. 2 poles go there and would then be under this cushion to support it. It's to support the cushion itself. Nothing to do with a cover.

Just looked at your vinyl job...super nice. The holders that i'm talking about would be in alignment with the table holder in the cockpit, just below the gray portion of your cushions. I'd take a pic of mine, but the boat's at the storage facility and won't get to it for a few days.

Thanks! Ok, so I didn’t realize the 04’s were different than mine on the inside. Had in mind they were nearly identical. If they don’t have to be adjustable, I’d probably make some out of aluminum tubing, or something. Good luck, and go Bucks!

Did you get the measurements you needed for these poles back in June?

Sort of...I measured myself and then guesstimated a tad. I cut PVC to length and tried it. Didn't support well enough though. I've not gone back and tried another material. All in all, i'll probably just do without, as we haven't missed not having it.

Yeah...would love to see the original poles. Are you selling them to someone already? or are you looking for a buyer?
