Default "Screwed" up pretty bad...

Ok, so I made an oops. I was getting out of the boat this afternoon and had a screwdriver in my coat pocket and well, it made a perfect round circle in the pad of the sundeck. I'm a little pissed at myself about it as the interior is only a couple years old. I was trying to keep my boots off the seats and sat on the sundeck and spun around and heard a pop. Anyone have any suggestions, maybe a repair kit or something?

just take it in and have it fixed, just the cover of the pad shouldn't be to bad, unless you have so kind of super trick one.

You think that's a bad screw up? I'll give you a tip. Don't hand launch bottle rockets over your new motorcycle seat .

How about pulling your boat out of a driveway and making a hard left. You find out you can not make it so you back up a little so you can make the turn. Only problem is now the boat is having a date with the gate keypad. Only cost about 5k to fix that one.

The Dr Vinyl repair may work. You should be able to call them to come out for estimate. I think they are a franchise and don't know if there are any in your area. I have seen some of their repairs and they look very good. They use a material that they heat and melt to repair the damage. The only other option is to replace the entire section of vinyl. Then teh color and grain might not match and you have to replace the entire cover.
