    The locks that I have used in the past are the metal T handle ones that Perko makes. They are high, but they look and work great. As you will see when you remove the others, there are different arms on them. Make sure you keep up with what length and shape arms go where, even if you are putting new ones on...

    Their carpet came highly reccommended by several marine shops around my area...Good Luck and dont forget boat stands for "Bring On Another Thousand"!!!

    Thanks...that's what Ive been wanting to go with...the 24oz Ash...did you have any problems with lids being too tight??? Mine also has the factory padded front deck...Im going back padded for sure! I really like the ash color...it is the closest to my current color...but since stripping mine down, we found that the charcoal gray had been the original color....they had dyed the carpet on decks and floor almost black and now are fadded a bit, looking like a color we could not find anywhere...once we took the latches off, you could see the charcoal gray under imprint of latch....plus my bunks had the same color in them...who woulda though??

    Ive been using some strip style LED's from Autozone where they are unseen and some screw on hard LED's where you can see the light when hatch is open...the long oval courtesy lights are still available...I will try and find out where I got them and get back to you

    Thanks kill3r bee . I will order 2 today. Also I would like to install t/m tray but looking at your pics cutting the two main floor stringers is pretty scary. What is the fiberglass section shown in pics? Was the top of deck under carpet painted also?

    yes...it is gelcoat under carpeted area...I haven't seen the rest of the deck yet...its still at the shop....yea, it was scary cutting into deck stringers....use a skillsaw for long straight cuts, a handsaw or sawzall to finish cutting floor stringers and finish off corners with jigsaw....the vertical bunk boards go all the way up to deck, so there is still plenty of support for the deck

    Don't mean to butt in, but I just cut the deck on my 92 ProVee 200 for a t/m tray. I only had to cut a section out between the braces. Hopefully you can see in the photos. The surface of my front deck was gel, same as the outside of the boat.

    I plan on putting carpet over it. I have re-done everything except carpet on my 92 ProVee 200. I am going to start on the carpet shortly.

    Alpha, does your bee have 2rod lockers like the 2100's do? Still would like to install one just don't like idea of cutting the 2 main stringers. The way rod locker inside walls come to top should support floor but still concerned.

    In hind sight, I should have added 2 cross members to box it in ...one at front and one at rear of tray....going across from rod locker to rod locker...also attaching the 2 cut stringers...kinda like when adding a skylight to roof or skuttle hole in ceiling for attic access....headering off the rafter(in this case, a stringer)....

    those stingers are not that long and end where they hit the center deck compartment....I weigh 220 and my Brother over 300...we have both been on the deck many times standing sideby side without any sagging of deck that I could tell...that's one reason I went with the welded aluminum tray instead of a plastic or fiberglass tray....

    holes from motorguide changed over to Minnkota Fortrex...we did reuse all the old rubber thru hull spacer/anti-vibration washers and drilled new for the Fortrex...had decals removed from motor and buffed out ready for new more colorful set of decals!! You will have to wait til installed...its a surprise! also, if the SUN ever decides to stay out for minute while uncovered, I will get some better shots for sure.
