First Damage to new rig.

Recommended Posts

OK Today I decide to take out the wife for a little panfishing. We go to a local lake and the access is a madd house. I helped a guy load his boat wait our turn and launch the boat. While I am parking the truck/trailer the wife is holding the boat. I get back and she tells me that a little black knobby thingy broke of the side of the boat as she was trying to hold the boat from rubbing against the dock with no bumpers. I look after we get away from the launch and it is the little cover that is on the side of the boat right below the fuel cover. I have a 2005 Lund Pro-V and I think it is the vent for the gas tank. I assume that it is so no water can get back into the vent hole. Now does anybody know where I can get one and also would like to know if it is a do it yourself replacement, or a professional job??

Thanks

I also did this last summer and have had no problems with the broke one. I wonder if a guy can just buy a new one, back out the old one and screw a new one in?

the black vent caps are located in a bad place on lunds older versions and if you run into dock on the side they are in they break off real easy.. and yes you need to replace them so water doesnt get in gas line..they can be found at most marine places and run about 10 bucks apiece for them and while your there i would buy an extra one as i have myself broke of 2 or 3 of these and it is an easy fix usually a needle nose to screw out the broken one and then screw in the new one..you might have to go from the inside of boat to hold in place as you put the new one in...its amazing that these vent caps cant be made of metal and not plastic because once you scrap the dock it will snap off real easy!!

Perko makes a lot of these types of parts and it's possible that's the brand on your boat. Most of the time there are two vents so you should be able to look at a similar one and see if it says Perko on it. Otherwise the obvious solution is head to the Lund dealer.

I know that all the other hardware on the boat is PERKO however I do not have any more of these on the boat so I cannot make sure.

Valv I live in Delano.

As others have said - most dealers have them on the shelf. I think there are two different sizes though - so measure before you go in.

Thanks everybody for the help. I tried last night to get the old one out and had no luck. It is broke off flush with the hull. Any tricks that you guys have used in the past get the old one out?

Thanks again.

You may need to pull the cover (from the inside of the boat) off to hold onto the hose or pull the entire fitting off.

What MM just said. I had to do it last year to my Lund also. The dealer soaks ya for those also so be prepared for the sticker shock!

    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
