Sorry to say my 185 Baysport was totaled during Irma. Not sure what I will do next but want to say I have enjoyed this Forum & will continue to monitor & respond.

Update. Yes it was a bad storm. Our home survived as well as us. It is raised about 5 feet with vinyl lattice surround. Plenty of storage. Think of it as your garage, without cars & a 5 foot ceiling with all your "stuff" stored there. Among comes 2-3 ft of MUDDY salt water stirred with 140 MPH winds before the horizontal rain. When the water recedes EVERYTHING is left covered with a heavy crusty film which has to be hand scrubbed & rinsed. Most power tools & freezer, ruined. Fly rods were in the house or with. All & everyone are okay. Had a few days to think about the boat and, I received "purchase price" from insurance, (substantial) decided to subtract their salvage value & rebuy my boat. Need some cosmetic on the hull, t-top & probably new engine. How do I contact Pioneer to talk about a replacement t-top? Thinking of 115 4 stroke Yamaha. If I can keep that under 15 I'll have 12 +/- left for everything else. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Glad you're ok.
Sorry about the boat. At least it can be repaired/replaced.
Care to share pics or details on what happened to it in the storm?
Local fab shop may be worth checking for a t-top.

well, i'm glad you made it through the storm. stuff can be replaced.

as far as your t-top goes, i'd find a local guy, or drive up to walterboro, and pickup a top and install it yourself.

i'd like to come down to the keys this spring. i hope you and the rest of keys will be cleaned up by then.
