Just finished cleaning it after it sat in the water for ~3 months.

Pulled all the cushions out and washed them / stored them in the garage.

On Off Hull cleaner to remove the plants growing on the hull hahah...

Has anyone used a bug bomb / fogger in thier boat. I noticed there were ants and some roaches, so i put the cover on and let a bomb off under neath it. I figure im putting the boat in storage for a week, it should help kill off the bugs!

boat looks great.

curious about the bug bomb also. I keep my x2 in storage by the lake and it always has spiders and so forth in it when i pick it up.

I will let you know. Only thing i could see being an issue is that they say turn off all pilot lights etc, so i think making sure it is well ventilated before cranking it up is important.

^you should do that anyways lol. I'm curious about the same but I use the spray on mine. I have trees that touch my bimini/tower in the driveway so the ants come flowing in quick. I just spray inside of the compartments and on top of the bimini. I don't know if those chemicals are safe for vinyl long term but who knows

I don't recomment Ortho Orthene powder unless you like the way it smells

lol. good to know. should we ask why you don't recommend it.

The raid bug bomb has been going for 2 hours... ill probably air it out from under the cover in another 2 hours. Im a bit worried about a residue left from the fog on the seats.

Carry a small baggy of that in your car to make the cops suspicious of you having coke ... until they take a whiff :rolleyes:

Thanks! I really like how it matches my trucks haha

As for the bug bomb i just went and put the post on the cover since it's abvout to rain and there are a few dead roaches laying around, not residue, so all in all i would say this might be something i will start to do every couple of months
