After going through the boat I have a few random questions that I cannot seem to figure out on my own. See pictures and the questions associated with it.

I cannot seem to find a replacement heat vent cover. This is the drivers feet vent. Any vent I have found online has like a diameter of around 4".

This looks like a locking device for the windshield. There is a spring in it but nothing else. Am I missing just a special pin?

Cannot figure out what this aluminum ring is doing in front of the ski pylon.

The bimini is resting on the tower component, it is like a coupling. Can this be rotated out of the way? Where should the white plastic be resting?

The long bolt looks like it should be tightened down. Although, is this part of the folding aspect and it remains loose looking like this in order to fold?

I found this while I was cleaning out the storage areas, no idea where it goes...

Thanks for the help everyone!

The last pic of the carpeted piece looks like a cover for one of your rear ballast level sensors 😎

Windshield pic: there should be a pin on the bottom corner of your fold out window that locks into that device on the topdecks to keep the open windshield from flopping closed in the wind or rough water.

Ski pylon: maybe the bottom of the pylon slots into that circular base and the clamp holds the mid to upper portion of the pylon.

Bimini: Those white plastic pieces either are bumpers to keep folded posts from rubbing against each other causing wear and noise, or many have locking c-clip backsides that hold the folded bimini together. Move/rotate it where it may be most useful.

Carpet Ushaped piece: could go in any below decks compartment as divider with ushape opening allowing ballast tubes/electrical conduit/steering cables to pass through. Might also go below windshield on either side. You can run without it as well.

Tower is supposed to be that way, so when you fold the tower down that clamp can dangle out of the way.

Belive the carpet piece goes under front seat...on either side as a trim piece.

The aluminum ring in front of the ski pylon is there to hold the blank that covers the hole where the ski pylon goes.

Looks like the window latch is missing the pin to hold it in place. Here's a new one - http://tacomarine.com/product/F16-2900/Walk-Thru-Windshield-Latch

As for the replacement vent, I can tell you why it is not there. :)
I have one on mine, and the vent has a knob you turn that open and closes the vent. The problem is it is built so cheaply that if you turn the fan on high, the air pressure will close the vent. I bought a new one from somewhere, can't remember, thinking mine was just old and wore out, but the new one did the same thing. I actually made a clamp to hold the stupid thing open all the time so I could use it.

we jammed a small bungee in to keep the vents open
