    2006 289 Bench Cushion Removal-gctid816782

    Hi Folks "How do you remove the bench cushions" the bench in the cockpit on the port side, when your sitting on it your facing the Captain.

    I think I may have a Wasp's nest back there!

    When I was working on the boat this past Sunday I saw a Wasp or maybe it was a Hornet ( I didn't get close enough to read the label) go into the gap between the two cushion and while I stood very still it came out in a few minutes.

    So I need to inspect that area before my crew comes on board.

    Thanks

    From the lower bunk there is a narrow panel that can be removed that gets you to the back rest fasteners, I would wait till its cool, slows the bees.

      Thanks Fritzman,

      I gave the cushion a tug and I could tell that it was not a snap on type of deal.

      This weekend i'll work on it.

        I was wondering what that panel was hiding...now I don't have to take it off to see.

          We get the, every summer someplace. If you're gonna open the panel do make sure you have a Raid hornet spraynin your hand ready to fire. Make sure retreat is already planned ahead and do it at dusk. Don't shoot in short bursts a machine gun. Let her rip and keep it coming pointed at the hive hole. They will just fly out and drop and keep dropping . Once you get some out flying around it's time to bail, they'll be sick anyways and die soon anyways . By morning there may be a few hangers on but that will be it. A quick squirt wii take those out then you can clean up the mess.
