    Frozen zipper’s on canvas

    I think that might just be the answer. The front ones have never been off or open. Bought the boat new in 2012 And all my boating is offshore so there is plenty of salt. Thanks for advise

    Generator Ffuel Tank Gauge

    I have a 2012 305 Express with a Panda generator . The fuel gauge is located next to the electrical panel inside the cabin of the boat. The gauge no longer works and I know it’s bad because it has proper voltage going to it. I have asked the dealer several times and they come up with nothing...

    Hardtop tower mountin

    Thank You for your input. I know in my heart it is not a good idea to just bolt a tower on it should be tied into the structural framework. It’s just good to hear it from others. I would like to think if Grady wanted towers on these express boats it would be a factory option with a huge price...

    350 Yamaha outboards

    It’s true they like to drink fuel but if you really take time and trim the boat for the sea conditions you can get 1.2 mpg but it takes practice.

    Hardtop tower mountin

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to safely mount a tower to the hardtop by just bolting the tower directly to the hardtop with backing plates, or should it be tied into the tubular frame of the boat. This boat is used exclusively for offshore fishing and some days it’s very rough. I’m also...
