Thumbs up WhiteWater Upgrades!




Since there were no drink holders on the new to me 28 WW I purchased 4 of the Mate Series rod/drink holders to put in pre-existing 2" rod holder holes. I went ahead and paid the $75.00 to rent there hole saw that fits in the existing hole and it was easy-peasy to open them up for a proper fit. I did have to use a rat-file in some areas but it made for a perfect fit. Sealed up the wood with Boat Lile/Git-Rot and after the epoxy cured I used some Boat Life/Life Calk around the openings to seal up and not allow any water intrusion. Nice project and it was money well spent!

Good Morning folks! I was wondering if anyone had any luck finding a NEW boat cover for there 28 Whitewater! I was hoping some shop in Florida had the specs on this boat could build me a good cover vs buying a semi custom cover.

The 28 I bought used came with one made in 2014 by Birdsall marine. It attaches under the Ttop and has suction cups all around it under thre rub rail. Also under the rub rail it has a slightly elastic strap that has plastic buckles/clips that come together at the bottom of the side zippers. The strap goes all the way around the boat. Even if some suction cups come off this is enough to hold the cover in place.

The original invoice came with the boat paperwork. For the full cover, engine cowling covers and custom hardtop cover it was 3900. The main cover was 2,650 before taxes. If you want additional pictures I'm actually on the boat this morning finishing up installing some additional rod holders.

edit: no I did not tow with the cover on since I'm sure people with see the rear towing strap coming out from under the cover.

Amon did my eisenglass. I had cover made at Alex Canvas at 19101 SW 108th Ave. They did a great job, two piece zip up sides, under the ttop and over the motors. Reinforced where needed. They can customize to whatever you want.

Amon did my enclosure also . Polycarbonate 3 piece enclosure and strataglass wings. He does great work for anyone looking for an enclosure.

How much did the cover cost? I got 3 different quotes, 2 at $1800 and the other place was $2600. All in FL, haven't decided which to use.

Amon quoted me two prices! One cover came down to the waterline ($500.00 more) vs the standard cover that just came over the gunnels as seen in the above pic and it was around $1500.00 made out of Sunbrella. He offered a lot of different colors but I chose the gray (dark gray I think) color as he said that cover/color lasts the longest of any cover he offers!

Default Up Grades!

Well I did some up-grades to my new to me trailer this weekend as I removed my old Wimpy winch stand/bow stop and replaced with a new V-BLOCK BOW STOP from AmeraTrail. The removal was easy, but the install of the new V-block bow stop was a little harder and much heavier and MUCH better quality than what I had!! Install went well but I had to manipulate one of the u-bolts to get her to fit properly and we finally came to an understanding! Put the boat in Saturday and was much more comfortable loading the boat later that afternoon with the new bow stop!

Has anyone added a freshwater washdown on a WW 28? Would like to add one and figuring out where to put it, what to get, etc? Seems like inside the console on the front would be good if I can get it to double as a step. Wasn't sure where a factory installation would be located?

Yaset - that ride is a thing of beauty and a joy forever! Looks like you have a solid pint-sized first mate in training as well! Enjoy in good health....

On my 32WW the freshwater wash down tank is further back behind the batteries. Basically under the leaning post. It's a 20 or 25 gallon aluminum tank.

Posting here but does anybody know of a 28 that may come for sale soon? Not in a huge rush (depends on the boat) but would be interested if the whitewater family knows of one not currently on the market!

Interesting Mine was for sale just a few weeks ago. And I never received one call. Not even a PM on this site. Actually a good friend ended up buying the boat. I had someone interested a month before the boat was ever advertised but they were unable to close on the boat.
