The next big interior repair is new countertops. We have narrowed it down to a couple of options one is hard surface the other Formica.

With luck the countertops will be installed before we travel to the gulf in April. I finished a parts list today for engine upgrades and if my work bonus comes through maybe I’ll have those installed as well.

A tip on the awning: If your tear is not very big, you can order small sample swatches if you can identify your awning color here http://www.awningsbyzipdee.com/fabri...--vintage.html
I used super glue to apply it over a small tear. Those big awnings are very expensive

That is a good tip on the awning. Mine is torn right where the pull is. In the pet that hangs for decoration. One thing I plan to do shortly is treat them all with 303 protectant. It has been done religiously in the past and it shows. Today I ordered pets for my step. The previous owner installed a nice automatic step but it failed recently. With luck it will be back in service this weekend.

Try cleaning the grounds for the step. That's frequently the issue if it quits working.

Itís been a long while since I updated this thread. The repairs and upgrades havenít stopped though! We still havenít decided on countertops! We did however install new captains seats and barrel chair from Ship For Seats.com. I was reluctant to spend so much money for something I couldnít touch. They had great reviews though and the customer service was awesome. Long lead times though, everything is custom built. I apologize for the picture orientation, once again! Iíll get proper pictures when I return home.

Those look great. Itís shop4seats.com, right? Considering what we paid to have our cockpit seats reupholstered, the prices donít look bad to me.

That is correct. Ours cost over 2000 total for all three but we upgraded the foam and springs and added seat heat.

Some more pics. These were the closest I could get to a fit like the originals. Alante is the style if I remember correctly.

Does anyone know where I can get parts for my generator? Fuel pump has quit and I’m struggling finding replacement parts. I can add a different pump but would prefer to stay original if possible. It’s a Koehler 7000kw

This is a backup camera that I ordered from Amazon. Relatively cheap compared to something like a Voyager brand and had great reviews. Itís worked fine since install about six months ago. Wireless connectivity was nice as well. Just had to use the original wiring for my 12v. LeeKuLoo was the brand.
