General Boating / 2007 Glastron GT185 dash panel
« Last post by Prairieboat on August 31, 2020, 07:19:31 PM »
Good Day. The dash panel on the drivers side of my 2007 Glastron GT185 is badly cracked I guess from sun exposure. I've looked around and haven't been able to locate one. I've tried Great Lakes Skipper to no avail. Anyone got any ideas as to where I might find one?
Thanks

Technical Questions / Cabin Cushions - Cheap
« Last post by thomas46 on April 05, 2020, 03:54:02 PM »
First, I am sorry to see that this forum is not used much.  Last post appears to have been in July 2019!

I bought my 2012 GS-249 in excellent cosmetic condition.  The cabin seemed like it had never been used.  The past two summers I have kept the boat at inside rack storage to prevent mold & mildew, etc.

A couple months ago I took the boat out of storage.  The V-Bunk cushions, etc., had deteriorated badly.  Inspection revealed that the plastic lining over the foam was an extremely thin material that tears very easily.  I could not believe that Glastron used such a cheap material in a boat's cabin.  A lambskin condom is thicker than that!

I went out and bought some rolls of tan-colored duct tape and will attempt to re-cover the seat cushions with that.  I am so upset - if I had bought the boat new and it was in warranty I would sue Glastron.  I hope people will read this post.

I can't help with the manual. Depending on what part you need, you may be at the mercy of calling dealers to see if they have any older books. Even though 2005 isn't that old.

Sucks they don't reply. When I purchased my boat, I had a couple specific questions and got good response on the phone and via email.

Technical Questions / 2005 Glastron Parts Catalog and sourcing
« Last post by jigeye on April 25, 2019, 10:31:32 AM »
Greetings from Memphis TN:
I have a 2005 Glastron GX 255 with a Merc 496/Bravo III outdrive. I am happy with the boat, however, I did not realize when I purchased it that parts sourcing for this year model is no longer supplied by Glastron. I have been relegated to looking at "Great Lakes Skipper" and other sites that have a limited amount of year specific Glastron parts.
1. I am looking for a 2005 Glastron Parts catalog. Do you know where I can find one?
2. Assuming parts are no longer made for this year model, it would be helpful to have the part # in order to source certain parts. What is the best way to source parts for this year model?
Thanks,
Mike

General Boating / Re: 2008 Glastron MX 175 grab handles

Try the dealer or Google - Great Lakes Skipper.

Have a Great Day,

Hi Mark,
Dealer suggested to get aftermarket grab handle, as delivery price for $25 part is $80+ Australian dollars  :o  Also, could not find aftermarket handles with correct length between holes in the handle. I just don't want to drill any additional holes in my boat.
Found it: https://greatlakesskipper.com/larson-boat-grab-handle-4234-2237-handle-00-white-plastic-9-inch-pair

Thanks Mark for your help.

Thanks Mark

I have never seen a pump and reservoir located other than beside the engine. Not on the engine. Could be either side in the far back corner against the transom.
