Engine Cover Mounting Help
As the screen name would suggest, I have a '98 Prostar 205. My boat has two screws at the rear of the engine cover that attach it to the floor of the boat. One of these screws has stripped out and allows the engine cover cylinders to push the cover toward the rear of the boat. This causes the cover to get close to rubbing the pulleys on the front of the engine and also causes a small gap in the floor in front of the rear seat between the engine cover and the rear floor panel.
You guys have any ideas of how to better mount the engine cover to the floor? Right now, I just leave the gas cylinders disconnected unless I need to work in the engine compartment.
