Default Windshield wiper Upgrade??

I would like to replace my wipers with a higher quality set. The OEM ones are junk and last about one season. Any ideas on nice wipers and arms available that will work on my Formula?

This comment maybe pure crazy. Is possible the reason why you are having the wipers only last a year is because of the constant UV/Sun rays? It will degrade the "rubber" and the heat most likely accelerates the process. May I suggest that when you are not on the boat that you try some kind of protective cover on them - shade them a little? My car's wipers last a little longer but it typically isn't in the sun as much - and for sure in the garage when not in use.

Again only a thought
