Default Where can I find Wellcraft parts- I tried the factory-NG

I need rod storage insert boxes and drink holder inserts (white plastic) for my 2000 Wellcraft 23' Walkaround. I tried the factory (which moved from Florida) and various online places. I'm in NY and don't know where to find. Anyone here have specific info on Wellcraft? Thnx, George

There is a marine surplus store near the old Wellcraft plant in Sarasota, FL, that used to have a ton of excess Wellcraft inventory parts. Here's their web address and tel. My advice would be to call as the guys who work there are very knowledgeable about what they have in stock http://www.marinesurplusinc.com 941-758-3552

You'll probably never find an EXACT new replacements...rod boxes are for sale all over ebay though. My recommendation is to find a pair that is bigger than your existing cutout and open the cut out up to make them fit.

I've got a 2000 190 Fisherman and was looking for the rod insets too without any luck. They had cracks around the screw holes and chipped corners. Made my winter project to repair them and used Marinetex. In spite of myself, they came out pretty good. Depending on what is wrong with your inserts, you may want to give Marinetex a try.

I have the 190 Fisherman with the same rod box cracks. (I also need new Wellcraft branded cushions for the helm and front seats.) Do you have any instructions or photos of what you did to your boxes? Thanks.

Thanks for the great suggestions (including,"try google"). I called the place in Sarasota First Light suggested and will have to call back tomorrow (their main guy is out sick) but they also told me of a liquidator "Marine Connection" that bought out much of Wellcraft's inventory. If I get the number, I'll post it.

I had pics but couldn;t figure out how to upload. Anyway, for the crack around the screw holes, I used a dremel tool to open up the cracks slightly. I filled them in with Marinetex, allowed them to dry and the used 600 or 800 grit paper to smorth them out. Just go easy on opening up the cracks if you go this route.

If any of your corners are chipped, sand the edges smooth with the same 600 or 800 grit paper. Take an old shoe box or something similar and cut the cornes off of the lid. Tape them to the corners of the rod boxes. This will give you a form to fill in with Marinetex. Let dry, remove the cardboard, and sand with the 600 or 800 grit paper and form the corners. This idea came from another THT member.

I picked up some spray paint (white) and sprayed the entire boxes. When I drilled new holes to mount the boxes I tried not to redrill the same holes although Marinetex is extremly strong.

Let me know if you have any more questions and I'll help.

Now why would you want to go making comments like that? We're all about the same thing on that forum as we are on this forum, namely safe boating and fishing and helping fellow boaters out. Next time maybe you should think before you make comments like that.

Marine Surplus, North of the airport in Sarasota on old 301, is a good place to look for what you need.

This outfit makes quite a few miscellaneous plastic parts for the marine industry. You'll have to check the measurements to see if they have anything that will replace the parts you're looking for. What I don't know is whether they sell retail....
