Hello Friends:

 

I have a 2001 Lund Tyee Magnum 1950 that needs a new portside transom corner cap (hard plastic cap with three screws) from banging into the dock during storms. It appears Lund doesn't manufacture this part anymore (called Aronson's, and can't seem to find it at any local stores or on any of the online parts companies (great lakes skipper, etc). Any sense for where I may search next?

 

Thanks

If you can't find one and need it really bad. You could try and find a shop to mill one out of a solid piece of black nylon.

Good luck.

Thanks for the replies friends, it's seemingly going to be a bit more difficult than I originally expected. I guess a 2001 is a bit too old to still supply these minor parts!?!? The local Lund place (Rapid Marine) indicated that they rarely go further than 2007 ish, which was a bit of a surprise to me.....

Hope I don't need anything for my 98...

 

Are their boat junkyards?

I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work.  

here is one.   this is from Australia but probably could find something here.   Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable.  

 

Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent....   My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years.   I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need.   You could even give them a call.

Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.

PSU - call the boat graveyard in Shakopee, right next to Valley Fair. It's called Twin City Outboard. I once went in looking for a replacement lower unit for a 3hp 1957 Johnson Seahorse. I was happy when the guy said they had it. When I got there, the guy brought out a box of them so that I could look them over and get the right color! They've got a lot of boats too. Cool place to visit and look around.

You can use some sort of solid nylon.

Lol....I need the exact same part for a '04 Lund Tyee 1850.  Went looking for a part in July and had the same response from RJ marine in Duluth.   Joked that I need a new boat.

Kicking myself that I did'nt get the Hewescraft I was eyeballing when I was in the market for that boat.  More solidly built IMO....but more utilitarian too.  (Not as plush and not as good for fishing out of the bow...) Lots of plastic parts, trim peices etc. on a Lund that are subject to changes from model year to model year.   Lund only supplies parts back 6years or so....so I am told.     Boats can last longer than a typical car.  Mine runs fine and is fishes just as good as the day I got it.    Aggrivates me that this is the issue now.

Quincy, please let me know if you either find anything or perhaps another solution.

 

Thanks

I bought an aluminum generic corner trim piece from RJ marine in Duluth.  It fits and will work.  Not sure if they had more of those.

If you search google for it there are a bunch of pictures.  Most of the corners, especially aluminum, are for pontoons but you might find something that would work...   My corners that came with the boat are a rubbery material.  Fortunately they are still hanging on, although not perfectly

      We estimated between 20 and 21 but will never know. May as well add a musky pic. Never did catch one while targeting them. Lol. Got this one on Leech. 8 feet of water. 8 pound test. 1/8 oz jig with fathead. 48 incher. Lol. A day of 8’s.

      Fancy! 👍

      Legally, due to the Governor's order, they cannot pack them in a liquor store. Those shoppers must also maintain appropriate social distancing while inside. Same for you when you buy bait, get gas, get groceries, whatever.    That's a potential real problem and what could inspire the closure of boat launches. If it becomes apparent that we are not following the rules, we will be restricted further. The only reason for the "stay at home order" was because we can't be trusted to use good sense.

      Definitely possession limits have to be looked at a little more seriously. A person would be amazed how many of the same guys you see fish the same lake day after day keeping fish. The only positive with the 5 fish limit is they are at least keeping less then they would if the limit was 20 bluegill. If it were 20 they would have a 100 a week versus 25. Sad but true no matter how we all want to look at it. Many fisherman are way over there possession limits, Freezers are full we all know of people who have big fish fry's every year and its definitely not boxed cod there serving 😉 With the lack of CO's out there enforcement is tough even with the TIP hotline.

      Hawk, 20# in Minnesota really is a trophy! I always thought there were good Pike in the Horseshoe chain when I fished it but never really got into any. Thanks for replying.
    • dutchboy II
      Your Mille Lacs fish is a chunk! Your Red Lake fish looks like the 42" I got in Minnesota. That one also was around 17#.
    • IceHawk
      My two personal best from MN all caught accidently walleye fishing. Never personally Target pike in  MN. Only place I have is Canada. First one was a 42 inch CPR on the Horseshoe chain of lakes right around 20lbs in OCT pitching Husky jerks up on a shallow sand flat targeting eyes, That one stopped it felt like I hooked a tree 👍. Second personal MN best came up on Rainy River Spring 41 3/4 never weighed it, pitching a 3/8 ounce jig and  B-fish-N pulse R for eyes. Didn't hit as hard but fought hard especially in the river current.

      My opener plans will not change.Stop and get bait/snacks at the gas station when fueling the boat/truck.This all done in one stop that would need to be made eventually to get fuel anyhow.Drive to the landing,not speaking or having contact with anyone while not touching anything.This has been my routine for the past few weeks and will continue to be for the near future whether around home or up north.They can cancel whatever they like,I will be fishing.I noticed i cant get a haircut but i can pack into the liquor store with plenty of other people and buy booze.Makes sense right?
    • CJH
      And if they aren't eating those fish regularly they are over their possession limit in no time at all.  Lower possession limits at the same time - 20 is just too dang high, and as history has shown us, unsustainable.
