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!
