2007 Bayliner 175BR – Cockpit/Bow Cover Set Testimonial

Hi Rick,

I have a 2007 Bayliner 175 bow rider. What I am looking for is the kind with snaps and goes on the bow and the windshield – two separate pieces.

Hi Rick –
Cover is received and installed.  Couple of pieces of feedback for you.The quality is perfect.  Very happy with how lightweight the canvas is.  The installation was easier than I thought, but took much longer than ‘a few hours’.  It would have been probably cut in half with one of those handheld spring devices that installs the fastener.  You might want to up the price and include one or strongly suggest one for installation.
The only issue of any significance was the count of the hardware.  The box of screws said 100 count on the outside, but only contained 25 screws.  The boat is used kind of out in the middle of nowhere, so a 30 minute each way car ride to home depot was an unexpected diversion, but was necessary to drop another $10 on 2 boxes of 50 screws!!  Also (and maybe this is by design), there were many more snap pieces (dome and fastener) than there were the fastener that screws onto the boat.
I definitely ruined a couple of the fasteners for the boat in the beginning as I was learning how to use the tool, but I still came up 10 or so fasteners short.  I just spaced them about 16 inches apart rather than the recommended 8 and will fill them in later this summer.  Was wondering if you could ship me a handful or recommend a place to buy them.
Either way, I enjoyed the project and other than the shortage on the hardware very happy with the product. Thanks,  Ed, New York, NY
