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.

Maybe somebody could 3D print a replacement for you.  Check the internet out.

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.

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

      Its even better for smallmouth bass.  Our rivers are loaded with them and there's very little pressure.

      Almost too nice if weather yesterday and today in this area.  If I were out today with the southern winds/gusts to 30, I’d spend most of the day on my feet.  Good day to still hunt.

      Although I moved away from the area over 10 years ago I can say without reservation that the rum river has fantastic walleye fishing. There's some pigs in there besides numbers. I've also had really good bluegill fishing there too!

      Any news after day one?

      i was told that the owner of the bait shop in deer river, george passed away earlier this week. story is they figure the  kids will just close the doors. i'll miss the guy. he may have been a bit more expensive, but his extended hours and honor system made it worth the stop there. one just doesnt see that no more. i'd call him if he wasnt going to be there he'd have what i wanted in his outside fridge and off i went.   and he always was willing to talk..........alot!!!!!!!!!!

      MRGC, Welcome to the forum.    Not to take this off topic but I have been going by your range there on the end of Monti for over 30 years.  I have always wondered how long do you think your going to be able to keep it open so close to the approaching town before they drive you guys out with safety and noise complaints?  It looks like you guys have done a lot of work with the back stop and other improvements.   Thinking long-term have you thought about looking for a piece of land for a new range before the Anti's try and get you out?   Just a question I have thought about all these years.  Good luck, hope you guys hang for another 30!   🙂

      Welcome to the area!  Blue Lake and Green Lake are panfish lakes close by with the occasional walleye to be had in either but with more consistently from Green.  Briggs Lake chain is another good option for both crappies and walleyes and with it being part of the river system some size can be had for both.  Go a little south from there and you can hit up the Annandale area lakes which have walleyes and crappies.  Good Luck and let us know how ya do!
