Door/lock on Alumacraft

17 posts in this topic

One of the locks on my Alumacraft's side-panel doors (the door for the rod locker) went to pot this summer. I'd like to replace it. Anyone know if the locks are replacable or if I need to replace the door? This seems like a stupid question, but the locks are so chincy I'm skeptical that they can be replace and still be sturdy.
If you can replace the lock or the door I'd imagine Alumacraft gets a small fortune for either- any other option for this?
Thanks,
Scoot

We have the same boat, so I know what you're talking about. I broke one of my locks too, but I was able to fix it (it completely went capoooey and into pieces). I don't recall what I did, but there's a lot of "Goop" holding things together! Goop glue is my best friend in the boat.
What part broke....the whole thing or just a part on the unit?

You can get a replacement lock...they aren't cheap! I looked into it at the dealer, and then I ended up fixing it myself after I looked at it closely and found the problem. I've had the entire lock mechanism pull right out with the key when trying to lock the doors shut. Lots of chinsy parts on those model boats. Today, they have a lot better parts in the new models.

Scoot, did you find the part you were interested ?

I am getting many Alumacraft parts and might have what you need.

I'm having the same trouble with one of my storage area doors. A buddy of mine didn't know it was locked and wrenched on the handle so much that it broke the whole mechanism.

I may be interested in some parts....but not til next spring, cause she's in storage now.

Valv,

I'd forgotten about this. I checked out the link and didn't see locks. Is it the whole door with the lock in it that you're referring to?
Thanks for posting this- I gotta fix it!

I don't have whole door, I do have hatches with lock and just the lock. If you can send me a picture, I can see if mine match.

For right now, the boat's in storage. We tried to get in there a couple of weeks ago and the doors are frozen completely shut. Salt and sunshine with warm weather will cure it, but it looks like a week or two before I'll be getting in there. I'll try get a picture of it as soon as we can open the doors.

Just curious what model and year you have? I'm looking at a Trophy this year. How do you like your boat - besides the lock?

The first link looks right, but I still have to get into storage to look at it again. I'll have to get back to you on this.

Scoot, I have 2 pallets of them, just let me know, I'll be GLAD to send you some.

If you need, many have same keys, you might want to replace them all, and have just 1 key for all.

Valv,

I sent you an e-mail and got it back. Changed e-mail addy's?
The boat I have is a 1700 Alumacraft Tournament Pro CS. I believe it's a 1998 model, but I may be off by a year.
Are the locks on that universal? Will I definetly be getting the right one if I have you send me one, or do you need to see the old one? I can even mail you the broken lock if it's easier. I won't bother if you're sure you'll send me the right one.

How much is one?

Valv,

It looks like the chrome one is the one I need. My boat is still in storage and will be for a while, but I may want to do some business with you at some point in the next month or so. I'll need to pull the mechanism in question so I am sure everything is a match. It does seem like a decent idea to replace them all, as they are all a little questionable.

Just wanted to let you know...kind of keep this topic fresh. I'll keep you posted on my needs.

You can e-mail me at bnpeters@bemis.com if you have any additional info for me.

Thanks.

Whoops, sorry guys I was bringing more parts in, and I didn't check site for few days.

Scoot, if lock is like 1st link, I can let you have as many as you want for $1.00 each, and they are all keyed same, so even if you'll receive keys for all of them, they will be same key. But if you can send a picture of it, I can see if I have something else

Huskminn, price for you is doubled..... wink.gif just kidding, same price, if you let me know what you are looking for I can see what I have, I just received another truckload and today I am outside counting and listing rolleyes.gif

The price is always double for me.....no matter where I go.

It may be a little while before I'm ready to work on this, but I'll keep you posted.

Trying to figure out when I'm going to have time to pull the boat out of storage and start prepping it for opener. Hopefully this or next weekend.

Are you still down south?

It looks like the locks aren't the style of the kind I have in my boat. I couldn't remember what they looked like until I looked at it last night.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
