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.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
