@JetBoatPilot Is the warranty good for all other issues except the light amplification? I have a '16 SX 240 in yacht blue that has the chocolate over black on the swimdeck .I'd hate to have to swap the swimdeck just to match colors when I go to do the cockpit.

We can sell it but must warn that due to many cases of melting in the cockpit the warranty is void when installing in the cockpit. The swim platform and some of the optional pieces don't have much issues, but the angle of the vertical fiberglass surfaces in the cockpit area has been causing some nasty melting problems. We've been able to replace the ones that have melted under warranty thus far but really try to advise that people do not use the chocolate in the cockpit.

the best alternative I've been able to come up with for the 2016 242 models is the Mica over Chocolate. Its a light tan over the factory chocolate color.
Do you have a picture of the Micah over chocolate? We got a color sample box direct from seadek and were drawn to the micah (we have a 242 black limited with the tan cockpit) and we're considering micah over black but hadn't considered micah over chocolate until now.

I chose the grey camo seadek and am very happy with it. I think the teak looks better initially, but I knew my floor would take a beating with all the skis and boards on it. The camo hides everything and is holding up great. The white has turned a little grey but it still looks really good IMHO.

I had some pictures posted somewhere but can't find them.
I found my install thread for anyone considering snow camo.

Is it the top level, far right? If so, that looks sharp, I'm in! When's the group buy?... :D
@AndyD Did you get Mica over Chocolate? If so, have any good photos?

I haven't gotten the seadek yet but I got a small sample from Will. It compliments the chocolate over black that comes stock with the 2016 242's and I think we're going to go with it. We're not going to replace the existing pieces but just add to the cockpit because I think it will look really good with the two different tones complimented on the boat.

I am in the same situation, either replace the current chocolate over black and go with a completely different color or go this route. So tough to tell what it would look like without big peices laid in the cockpit. I love the classic look of the faux teak but this combo might be a winner.

Where is the stock pieces on the '16 242s? Swimdeck, copilot dash and anchor hatch?
