94 Falcon Project

Yea I will not get rid of mine either.  I bought it new for $14,500 I might have added another $3,000 in upgrades over the years so it has cost me less than $1,000 a year for the boat (not including maintenance). My wife thinks we should get another boat and just keep both but we have enough boats in the family that are sport specific from slalom to surfing we are covered.  I have been thinking of seeing if I can order the sea deck stuff that says centurion on it for the top of the Gunnels on the side, and then custom order a matching part to go on the very back top deck where I have three plastic traction pieces on each side.  I wish that when I re=carpeted that I would have done seadeck in instead but that can go in next time.

I bought some traction pad from agenda surf to go on the back top deck exactly what you are talking about and removed the three black plastic rails. I have two young kids and they climb all over the boat like monkeys so we will see if the traction pad holds up over the summer. I took before pics and tonight I will take some after pics and share  color = snow camo

There is a website called....marinedeckfactory.com....its out of China. They sell direct in different colors (there is a minimum order), but if you are handy and can cut and install yourself, you can redo entire boat for $500 for all the "SeaDeck" and the shipping. Guy on WW did it and it looks great. At some point I am gonna order some to replace the carpet in my lockers and under all seats....and to add strips to gunnels like mentioned cause when docked, that is where everyone steps to board. Plus my boat is black, so will help cut down on the heat factor and limit scratches.

I looked at that but not enough room to fit an iPad mini. 

You can fit a GPS unit there.  That's what I did when I re-did my dash in my Falcon.

I talked to Gator Step today about getting Centurion logo custom made decking for the back of my boat.  They have the logos, but they asked that I get permission to have it used on custom work, not the premade stuff that they have.  We'll see if it's allowed.  I have it kind of designed in my mind.

Nice install with the GPS unit. I ran one of those on my duck boat and was very pleased. Also check out the Navionics boat app for your phone. This is what I use on my Surf Boat. I run my phone/ipod/gps to a charging cable and mounted it in a similar location.

Let me know what they say.  What does the back deck of yours look like?  I wonder if it is the same as mine.

Mine looks like the one in Jago Baby's pic too.  So far no response from Centurion, but I found the Gatorstep rep on Facebook, so I'm going to communicate with him and see if I can make some progress.  

Jago - how hard was the template creation process?  I want one piece shaped like a U to go over those triangle areas where the original 3 wood slats were and up the sides to about where the red color stops.

I taped 3 foot wide butcher paper down that i found in the kids room and traced it -  had to use separate piece for the sides
