2006 Mainship 400 wiper blades

Can anybody provide recommendations on replacement wiper blades?..

I think they are 22 inch blades.

Take one to any auto parts store and match it.

For flat windshields I prefer the metal backed HD truck blades.
My NAPA gave me a couple SS adapters to fit the arm tab ends. I had to add a small SS bolt & nut and a spacer nut to attach to the hole in the blade.Click image for larger version

I searched every auto parts store in my area and never found any that worked. I ended up buying them at WM. A little more $$, but they fit. I think they are marincos. Here's a link:

MS did use Marinco wipers.
Various ones are shown in the MS, Luhrs, Hunter part photos linked in the Marlow-MS section sticky re parts.

Thanks Don.


I like your flat blades and can see how they would be more effective, and likely more economical as well. The Marinco wipers have the advantage of being plug and play.


I saved a few bucks by putting a long blade on the window directly if front of the helm but shorter ones on the other two. I don't use them very often, honestly, as I usually run the boat from the upper helm, even in the rain.

I use Duralast conventionally wiper blades. I get them at auto zone. I put 24” blades on the port and starboard windows and a 22” blade on the center. My wipers are I believe Marino’s. The wiper arm has a flat blade which the Duralast blade slides onto and fits into place. They work well for me.
