      Do you guys interpret WA's rule as meaning we can't go boating? I go out of Port of Ridgefield and right now on their website it says their boat ramp and paddle boat launch are both still open. I feel like if we practice distancing while at the ramp and only go out with immediate family then hitting the water would count at as the outdoor activities we've been told we're allowed to do (running, biking, etc). 

      It's going to be 70 here on Thursday. I already told my boss I will be taking the day off from the home office to take the family boating.

      There is no limitation on "boating" that I know of. Many ramps are closed as they are part of parks that are closed.. But nothing stopping you from boating if you can get on the water. And I'm not sure they can close federal waterways completely.

      10 years ago I would of thought the later. Now I think it is a crap shoot on what comes off of the line. I have a good 6” gap between the closest points of the seat and the window frame. And you can see the even level of the seats in the other pic. 



      Just checked mine before coming in the house with same results , 6-8" at closest point.

      On a different topic, but Similar boat, I need to find a replacement for the armrest that houses the throttle. My interior matches your boat exactly. 2008 LXI. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      @Loshie1056 I know it's a bitter pill to swallow, but in your case if you upgrade to the Stargazer it is a VERY simple installation even if you're not mechanically inclined.  The end result is pretty nice, and it still uses your existing water temp sensor (and paddlewheel for use if needed.)  Almost plug & play except for the R&R of the dash gauge cluster, and also a lot cheaper then when I bought 5 years ago.

      Here are some pictures of my install, don't let the one with ALL the gauges out scare you, I was fixing the dash plastic since it had a crack in it and I reinforced it with epoxy putty as pictured, but still not a big deal.  If you do this it's a good time to polish the clear plastic gauge covers and paint the surround if needed...they'll look like new!  If you need help or encouragement let me know and I'll walk you through the install process and removing the dash gauges...pretty simple.

       I feel for people who purchased a boat earlier this year, who would have thought we could go from the strongest economy ever to record breaking unemployment in a matter of weeks.

      Well those people have a new boat sitting in the driveway and that really is never a bad thing:)
