I have been unable to find titanium over black brushed. I'm leaning on storm gray over black . Can anyone provide a side by side comparison? Thanks

Thanks @JetBoatPilot (Will and your team!), my order just arrived today in perfect shape. Can't wait to get it installed!

But one thing...am I suppose to use a blunt object to open the box!?! :confused:

@JetBoatPilot do you happen to have any installers that you recommend (or does anyone know of anyone) - in the Tampa Bay area, preferably in Pinellas (Clearwater / Largo / St Pete etc)? I'm thinking of getting the full kit (cockpit, swim, and option) for a 2019 242 LSE. I know most folks here have done their own - and talk about how easy it is, but I've had a hard enough time just applying registration numbers. I'm afraid it'd look like Picasso laid it after I'm done with it!
I'll be down there in December and can help you if need be.

I may have to take you up on that!! :D

I was actually wondering about that: are there any concerns in purchasing NOW, but then letting it sit for three or four months while we wait for cooler weather before trying to tackle the install? I'm assuming it would be best to store it indoors (A/C) rather than the garage, but - would it be OK to let it sit for a few months before attempting an install - or is that a bad idea?

my SX195 came with 2" teak on the swim platform and on top of the storage... will it be tacky to put the dragon scale or 4" plank in the cockpit?!

Shouldn't be a problem.

None at all. In fact, letting it sit and "unfold" from shipping helps a little.

I would not do that unless you were planning to match up the whole set inside a year.

That is also not sea dek. It is marine mat, an inferior product IMO. I would just rip it up and use all seadek, that's what my plan is when my order arrives. I also got dragon scale

I just ordered the bow pads for my SX-190. It’s way to slippery without them!

I sent in my traced template for the crumbling dash pad that is to the right of the steering wheel. It will be included with my order as well as the bow vertical "AR" seadeck above the step.

i'm about to order the cockpit kt...but was wanting to add an optional mat above the anchor locker step like the new 25's have. is this what you're talking about?

Custom artwork can be done for an additional cost.
