Yes Yes yes I know its summer and no I didnt learn my lesson................yet.
I replaced installed new helm, steering cable & steering wheel a couple years ago. Give me a shout if you need anything. I did a lousy write up at the time. There are some decent pics though.

The domed numbers look awesome! Just got mine in the mail. Did you do any special prep before you installed them. Wondering if I should clean the surface with acetone to remove wax?

As soon, or perhaps if, it thaws out and warms up. You can count on it Mike.

absolutely prep surface - MC waxes molds when they spray gelcoat. Wash gelcoat with Dawn dishwashing liquid - rinse well- wipe down with acetone and then with isopropyl alcohol.

and bit of wax will prevent permanent or long term adhesion.

I'm considering adding this latch/stay to the cooler seat in my '06 X30 but thought I'd solicit opinions before proceeding. For those of you who have this in your boat - do you like it? Does it function well and has it held up well? Any insight would be appreciated.

They have eliminated the latch on the 2014 models....I guess somebody got their finger pinched.
