    Aluminum Boat For Sale – Mission Marine 288 – All Welded Aluminum Hardtop and Console

    October 8, 2019


    Here we have a 25 footer. I want you to notice the hardtop. It’s all welded aluminum. it’s not going to rot; it’s not going to rip or tear apart, and we have handles Everywhere. Also in this picture you can see our side door and the high-low fenders. Here, as we start to look at the details, we can see a large binnacle box. and a very large leaning post where people can lean on it from both sides. Our side door is open … more grab rails here [and] all across the back
    and of course at the edge of the seat. This particular boat has a dodger on it, so when there is spray – and that’s inevitable – [and] it’s windy and rough, you have a place to stick your head in and be protected a little bit. Here is a little more detail on the binnacle box. Notice that we have removable panels that we can mount electronics in. 3 in this application and then actually a 4th one down on the horizontal area. This is so when you buy a new GPS, a chartviewer, or depthfinder, and so on, you can actually remove these panels, mount them out on the bench, and then put in your new part. You still have access from underneath the binnacle to do servicing, but when you buy new electronics and they’re a different shape, you just modify the plate or whatever appropriate cover you choose. There’s a lot of advantages to that, because these boats last, and you’re going to have different electronics over the years. That wraps up a little bit about this part of the 25 footer.

    Trailer Construction: Galvashield Impact Protection

    August 25, 2019


    The tubular steel frames of our trailers are protected against corrosion by an exclusive process we call Galvashield Impact. Galvashield Impact is a method of preparing
    and finishing steel, using multiple protective layers that result in a durable corrosion
    and chip resistant finish that lasts and looks good for years. Preparation begins at the steel mill, where
    pre-galvanized steel is coated with zinc. When this steel is formed into tubes the inherent
    strength of the now galvanized tube is protected on the inside and outside by this zinc coating.
