Manufacturer Specific Replacement Parts For Your Boat

Here at Boat Outfitters we have been working diligently to ease the pain of searching for common replacement parts and hardware for your boat.  One of the ways we are doing this is by designing manufacturer pages with replacement parts and hardware that are specific to each manufacturer.  Today’s blog post will show you how easy it is to find the latches that Boston Whaler uses in most of it’s stock applications.

From our homepage you will notice a new bar across the top of the page with a number of boat builders logos on it.  This is one way to find your particular boat brand;  The other way being the orange search bar at the top of the page.  Once you locate the manufacturer that you are looking for you can gain access to their specific page, in this case we are looking at Boston Whaler.

Build Your Own Boat Door

When searching online for replacement boat parts for your boat, it is easy to find yourself lost in a sea of options (none of which really are what you’re looking for). Traditionally, people looking to retrofit an OEM quality replacement boat door must either revert to building it themselves or working with a local plastics fabricator. While a local plastics shop can sometimes get the job done, it is generally a long process as they must order the marine grade material, figure out the general marine design engineering and assemble a part they have never built before. The result is an overpriced door built by fabricators inexperienced with marine products.

Not Anymore! Now, the same guys who over 200 boat builders trust to build their parts can knock you out a custom boat door in a matter of days at a very fair price. Build your Own Boat Door is a simple product page that enables an individual to create their exact door in less than 5 minutes!

We offer two main types of access doors to choose from:

Starboard and Acrylic Door - Boat Outfitters

Starboard Access Doors are our most popular option as they are the most durable and cost effective. They also are the easiest to install with predrilled face mounting holes.

Aluminum Framed Access Doors are available with either Starboard or Acrylic door faces. They offer a very low profile, hidden fastener look that is aesthetically pleasing.

How to build your own door:

When designing your replacement door it is first important to understand there are 3 critical dimensions:

  • Your Outside Dimensions – The length and width measurements of the outside of the frame
  • Your Hole Cutout – The hole cutout that the door will install into
  • Pass Through Dimensions – the opening size the door will create (important only if you know you need to fit something through the door)

Step 1: Specify your outside dimensions – For customers trying to fit an existing hole cutout, the outside dimensions will be 1.75” larger for a starboard door & 1” larger for an aluminum framed door. As you type in your outside dimensions, your hole cutout and pass through dims will display above. See Highlight Below:

Step 2: Select your Color – Doors are available in 5 different colors – White/White, Arctic White, Seafoam, Black, & Dolphin Gray (Starboard Only).

Step 3: Select your Latch – Choose among white plastic, black plastic, & stainless steel flush latches. All are available either locking or non-locking. Locking and Stainless options are subject to an up charge.

Marine Latches - Boat OutfittersStep 4: Select your other specifications– Lastly you can choose among a variety of additional features to further customize your door. For Starboard doors, you can select to add an integrated seal (standard for aluminum framed doors). On Starboard doors, you can also select to either have your face mounting holes predrilled or to take care of that yourself (Aluminum framed doors are all predrilled for inside flange mounting). You can also add vented louvers to either style door to add some ventilation to your storage area.

Click Get Price and Order! Starboard doors generally ship within 2-3 days. Aluminum Framed doors take a little longer (4-5 days) because they must be custom bent and powder coated.

Replacing Worn Latches

The quick and easy boat makeover!

Replacement Boat Latches - Boat Outfitters

Few pieces of hardware take more of a beating than a boat latch. Opened, closed, and slammed shut repeatedly (not to mention saltwater and constant UV rays). The truth of the matter is, that plastic boat latches have a limited lifespan on a heavily used boat.

The good news is that replacement latches are readily available, quick and easy to change out, and not outrageously priced like many replacement boat parts. With about 20 minutes of work you can give your boat a dramatic facelift.

Boatoutfitters.com offers White Flush Latches, Black Flush Latches and Off-White Flush latches. All are available as either locking or non-locking.

For the person who really wants to upgrade their boat, stainless steel flush latches are the way to go. Outside of the nice look, stainless steel latches are a significantly more durable option that typically never has to be replaced. All Boat Outfitters stainless latches are 316 stainless steel and have been proven durable on literally millions of boats.

As with the plastic flush latches, our stainless flush latches are available both locking and non-locking and in a variety of styles. We offer a D Style Flush Latch, a Bird Style Flush Latch and a Slim Style Flush Latch.
