Ready to upgrade your boat with new gear or equipment?
Boat upgrade projects can be exciting, but also challenging for boaters that chose to go the DIY route. Luckily, some of the more common projects have been tackled by many boaters and you can learn from there experiences and best practices. And in many cases the manufacturer is more than happy to assist with DIY guidance.
Other projects that are complex - like new boat canvas - may require the help of a professional that is best equipped to customize or install on your boat. At the very least you'll want to be sure that you are custom ordering properly prior to your own installation.
In the end, there's nothing more satisfying than upgrading your boat with new equipment or gear that makes your boat more comfortable, convenient or functional for how you like to boat.
