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

Technical Questions / Re: 2008 GT225 Stern Drive Trim Not Working
« Last post by Merlin16 on July 11, 2018, 02:24:33 PM »
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.

Could the motor and pump actually be in the top of the stern drive housing, outside of the hull?  I hunted again and I cannot find it in the engine compartment.  The boat has power steering and I see the hydraulic pump for that.

Technical Questions / 2008 GT225 Stern Drive Trim Not Working
« Last post by supercar on July 09, 2018, 09:54:45 AM »
The trim for the stern drive on my 2008 GT225 suddenly stopped working this week.  It was working fine on the 4th, but then when I went to use it, later in the week, the trim was not working.   

I tried to find the problem.  I can hear the relays clicking for both directions and there is one relay for each direction, so I don't think both relays would fail together and since they are clicking, obviously the switch is working.  So, my guess is the power connection is bad somewhere.  I didn't find where the hydraulic pump was located to be able to check the connection on the motor.  So, I also don't know which wire is the power wire.  I tried hunting online for a service manual, but couldn't find anything - a wiring diagram would be great.

Can anybody tell me where the hydraulic pump and electric motor are located?  Does anybody know where I might quickly find a service manual or wiring diagram?

Regards,
Dave

Technical Questions / Re: 2007 GT 205 Soft Floor
« Last post by Merlin16 on June 15, 2018, 10:31:34 AM »
to the OP, I don't believe the floor is made of plywood. My understanding is the entire top half of the boat (deck, seat base, floor, side panels) is constructed as one piece from fiberglass and then lowered into the hull. Maybe the spot you are feeling is just the glass structure flexing under your weight.
Is your floor fiber exposed with no carpet? Or do you have snap in carpet?

Technical Questions / RIGHT SIDE WINDSHIELD RAIL 2006 SX 175
« Last post by The Canadian Guy on June 13, 2018, 09:59:18 AM »
I have a 2006 SX 175 and when I got it back from storage the bimini top was damaged.  They backed it into a garage without proper clearance as opposed to taking a minute to lower the bimini.  The bimini will be repaired next week, but I am in need of the railing that attaches to the right side of the boat's windshield to the boat.  This is the outside rail.

I would post photo's, but this website doessn't allow me to do that, so we can communicate by email.  marc@marcscreations.com

I thank you in advance for any help.

Hi Michael,

I have a 2006 SX 175 and just had the hull redone because of osmosis (hull blistering) at a cost of $3000.00 and I am wondering if you have this problem as well.  I was told by a Glastron dealer that Glastron went bankrupt around 2005 to 2008 (he not totally sure of the year) and apparently they skimped on some of their processes to save money back then.  He had heard of other problem with model year 2006 and 2007.  I did contact the dealer I bought the boat from who gave me excellent service until they found out the boat had osmosis and was then given the bums rush.  When I bought the boat the sales man told me the cost of the boat included transferring the hull warranty.  TOTAL BS.  The dealer put me in touch with Glastron who informed me Glastron went bankrupt and they were a new company operating Glastron so no warranty.  I'm on my last Glastron the next one would have been number 4.

Anyway if you have an optical camera (you can buy/sometimes rent at most good hardware stores or if you know a mechanic) hopefully your floor has a cubby in the floor that you can lift up and put a camera in there to see if there are any issues.  It also helps if you use some extra light to brighten up the area if you can.  This should hopefully give you an idea as to what's going on.

I hope I was helpful.

Please keep us in the loop in case someone else has the same problem.
