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.

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

      Just curious how many people would like to see this site and this post to pass on a a public service to all during these trying times as we are all in this together !   at a time when so many businesses are pitching in and using their business to help out during these trying times wouldn’t it be nice if that could be done here as maybe a way to get the word out , give tips or ways to help out our brothers and neighbors during these trying times . I’m sure any help would be appreciated .    It would really be sad to see this post  removed by a moderator ..  
    • Bigfatbert
      So great to read this , how so very caring and thoughtful you truly are . thank you for posting this ray guy ! Your fishing buddies are so lucky to have you as their friend and fishing partner .

      The city of Duluth is only allowing locals to go go smelting in the rivers . Non local cannot participate due to the Covid19 restrictions , and while smelting all must maintain at least a 6 ft distance .
    • Bigfatbert
      With Covid19 restrictions this holds  true for non family members .   With a 12-17 ft boat no more than 2 people can legally fish from it    With a 18 -23 ft boat no more than 3 people can legally fish from it .   With a 24-30 ft boat no more than 4 people can legally fish from it .   must always maintain at least a 6’ distance  at landings , landing parking lots , docks , while in he boat fishing or moving around  , using a landing net ,..

      I know where your coming from always on the water well before sunrise and usally of by 10 or so.  My  buddies always say we know your off the lake and the boats loded as soon as we see the first jet ski or water skier. 😀 Problem so many are so inconsiderate now a days. They see I'm walleye fishing and its like a game to go right by me when they have the whole open part of the lake to tear up. 😡

      Poachers caught and more poachers caught by Tom Chapin. Alot of them happened within 60-70 miles of our cabin.

      I hear ya on fishing locally. I only like big water, not for the fish but because I get tired of going round & round like a NASCAR. Also have a very low tolerance for jet ski's, water skiers, speed boats.   Fishing is just something I do while on the water, not the reason I go.
    • IceHawk
      You should know you did it in a few threads yourself 😂 In fact we all have maybe a time or two.  Had to throw that one at you 😉 All in good fun!
    • IceHawk
      I hit Mill Lacs once a summer but it's not a real big deal to miss it. More than likely wont even go this year. Wish I could but may not even have that option with this stuff going on now.   I have lakes near my area that always produce good results if you put in the time to figure them out. Ill fish locally as I almost always  do through the summer just way easier with my hectic work schedule. Many people would be surprised how good of fishing they have close to them if they would only put in the effort and time to learn the lakes near them. Agree with all these bad years with the regulations and now this sad but true some of the mom pop resorts just wont make it to much longer.

      Old thread I know but............   Fascinating thread. Hope I can make a show. Love seeing hand made art.  😃
