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

      Steve Ahlers [email protected] (218) 729-0384 • Work Architectural Metals   I had Steve put a standing seam galvanized metal roof on my cabin in 2004..I think.  It still looks great.  Will outlive me most likely.   He lives in Duluth but was more than willing to come up to V to put the roof on.   Its been a while but worth a try.

      Got about 20 nice bass today. Most on TRD lure and Ned head. Also a pike and a walleye. Water back up to 60 F. These were the last two Raint2019-9-16B.mp4

      I have not hunted it in about 5 years but there were plenty of people running outboards, you have to be logical and not try and run where you can't. I wouldn't do it in the dark the first time. The majority of places I hunted on swan and had good luck were via canoe where I would paddle then drag it across a bog then paddle more. There are places where no motor outboard, longtail or surface drive can't get to, find these places there will be birds but it takes a lot of work

      It’s been jig-minnow for me. Boated 32 walleye today. Lots of nice fish up to 17”. But no slot fish. Caught everything in 22’ to 30’. East end.

      Except that basically no one targets Tullibees to any extent.   The issue with walleye is that they are targeted at a level that the fish cannot tolerate no matter the weather or global climate change.   The natives taking their share has increased the pressure, and the various invasive species have made them less able to withstand the pressure, especially considering the political and economic issues.   If the tribal quota was zero as it was for many years, it would be politically easier to maintain harvest by anglers at a sustainable level.

      Went out Saturday morning. Couldn't get to my stands due to the monsoon season we are having, so I grabbed a chair and sat on the ground in some willows. Had a doe with a fawn come out shortly after shooting time. Then a small 1 year old buck. Then a bachelor group of 3 small 1 year old bucks. All the deer at one point were within 20 yards of me while sitting on the ground. Didn't kill anything but it was a good time.
