St Pete Here, Can't imagine marine vinyl in Florida. You might survive if you have a top on, but direct sunlight you will melt into the seats and leave skin behind. I think you have to go cloth, and cover the seats if wet is an issue.Really good point about vinyl seats. Wasn’t thinking about that. I’m in Palm Beach County and swore off leather, I dont know how I didn’t connect that thinking to vinyl.
I’m not convinced a winch is a waste, if only because if I’m alone a tow strap’s not gonna get me out anything. On the other hand, I have a literally never used a winch. I’ve always seemed to be able to figure something out.
