Very nice indeed!

Your new graphics are very close to what came on my 2007 185BR. Looks very sharp! Good job! What plans do you have for other restoration(s) on this boat?

Really want to tint it but all the shops around here have told me that the curve is to strong to tint on?

It can be done...just have to find someone with skills.

I had a guy over yesterday and he had a heck of a time with the curve....so much so that he decided to go back to his shop and talk to some more experienced tinters to see what they recommend to do.

Needless to say....my windows are still tintless.

I was thinking of replacing the plastic horn cover with the chrome one. I just have one little question, how do I take the plastic one off?:confused:

It just pops off. Get a finger nail under it and work your way around it. :cool:

PM Skygazer. They did it and posted a picture. I think she has a 185 and is quite proud of her mods. Quite helpful too.

Jess, just work your fingernails under the cover and pull it off, like Garry said. There are 3 plastic pins that keep it in the horn cover assembly. The replacement chrome cover has two holes for the screws to go into. Just remove the screws from the assembly and use them to secure the chrome housing in place. It's that easy...Really. :arr

I went to look at my boat to see if I had screws and it turns out that it has two screws holding it on. One on each of the sides.

I have the same year and model as you do and looking at one of your pics from an old post of yours, yours pops off just like mine. The screws you see are under the cover and those hold the horn itself on. You just want to change out the cover, I'm doing the same thing, gotta go order the cover today on my lunch. Mine was kind of hard to pop off the first time, thought I was going to break it but I just kept working my way around it and it came off. :arr

Hi all. I've got my 175XT packed away for winter now (in Australia) so I'm keen to avoid taking it to a trim shop.

When I bought my boat, it did not have a cover fitted to the bow and I am considering getting the trimmer who made the bimini and bag to make one and send it to me - I am 750km from him! He's got a template to make it from and I'm keen to make sure that all the canvas is exactly the same.

My question is...has anyone fitted the bow cover themselves or would you suggest taking the boat to a local trimmer and getting them to do the whole job at their place?

Thanks, Sean.

Here is our MissBayHaven:

Modifications:
1. Boat guides. I did not notice when I ordered the guides that the older Escort trailers have a frame that is several inches more toward the center of the boat than the newer trailers. When we received the guides, they were about 6 inches not wide enough. My husband went to our local metal recyclers and was lucky enough to find the exact size of square tubing to weld onto the guides to make them fit.

2. I made privacy curtains for the side and front windows. This was a real challenge as there is nowhere to fasten them. I have pictures of how I did them in my album, link below.

3. I made some strapping out of leftover vinyl to go around the fire extinguisher. I sewed hook and loop tape to the strapping. The extinguisher sticks nicely to the carpet on the floor of the passenger side and does not come loose, yet can be pulled off easily when needed. There is a picture in my album.

Future modification:

Name on back of boat. I'm not quite sure how I can do this with the swim step on one side. I don't know if I should try to center it or put it to the left or ??? Has anyone with the same type of boat put a name on theirs? Could you post a picture?


Repairs since we've owned her:
1. Part of the floor and the carpet that covered it were rotted and torn. My husband repaired the floor. Although the whole boat needs recarpeting (no holes but very worn), he just put carpet on the part where he fixed the floor. At $40 a yard, the carpeting is a project for another day.

2. I recovered the three rear cushions and sundeck. They were in shambles and I was barely able to use the old vinyl for the patterns. The back-to-back seats and front cushions also need to be reupholstered, but they don't have any holes in the vinyl, so they're on hold for now.

3. The horn was very corroded and did not work, so we replaced that.

Other pictures can be seen at my album here:

Very pretty boat for her age. A great example of how well a boat will look and hold up if cared for properly.

Hello drew999999,

Thank you so much. We get a lot of compliments on how nice she is, even though we've still got some work to do on her.

Well, it is too small.... Took pic with a 6 megapixel Kodak and haven't quite figured how to get under the size requirement for this forum. Will try tomorrow to get it appropriately sized.
