Cool. Helpful post.

Does Manny have the molds for the trim tab pocket covers for the non-T 25/27/31's? Lost one at one point and was able to get a new one, but it was not quick.

Either he has them or can make them very easily.

Call Manny. I am sure he can make one very very easily if he doesn't have one sitting around.

Only thing is that the non-skid will be new and more gritty.

Thanks for all of the input on this guys. Although we do recommend that you obtain parts from your local Contender dealer, we realize that sometimes that may not be possible or some parts only come direct from the manufacturer. Please contact me directly if I can assist with the location of one of our dealers or a source for a hard-to-find part.

A couple of minor corrections/additions:

The website for Kluch clothing is www.Kluch.com.

The phone number for Sunshine Tanks is 305-805-9898. Ask for Lucy or Gina.

K plane oil caps you get from Mercury. They should be yellow.

I tried the oil caps from Yamaha 4 stroke oil, does not work, will leak under pressure.

Labeled dash switches. Valgreen. You can choose between different colors, styles, and switches.

I think he started this thread due to the lack of customer service Contender provides, as shared on another thread

I realize this thread's been dead for a while, but I can't seem to get seat cushions ordered for my 25 Bay. Any leads, or contact info to supplier would be greatly appreciated. Jump seats keep opening up while trailering the boat, and have a problem losing cushions!

Have you called Contender to request them? Almost lost our set of cushions for our demo 25 Bay in route to a show....

If you have a local canvas shop near you I can send you a picture of mine along with exact dimensions.

Here's a contact that had been listed in the past. He stated to email him w any questions

I am having issues with one of my Mercury trim tab pumps. It is not retracting all the way. It also popped the fuse one time.

Yes, I've called a couple times and left messages. Was hoping to have them soon, but not looking good. I'm sure they'll call back soon, will wait patiently.

I don't yet know what they'll cost, but I've started duct taping jump seats down when trailering. Even without the cushions, the fiberglass lids are taking a beating when they open at 65mph.

Yes, I called Jordan about them a couple months ago. He was helpful, but transferred me to parts.
