Coastal 232 Bow Eye

Postby Geeman » Thu Jan 09, 2020 5:58 pm

Hi... I have a 2006 Wellcraft Coastal 232. I need to replace the bow eye but can’t seem to find anything quite the right size. Does anyone know the manufacturer of the original bow eye? Thanks in advance for your help!

Since Wellcraft went out of business on 2008 all of there product information seems to have disappeared with them, the best thing to do now is to pull the bow eye off and start trying to match it up with something. The people who make glasstron boats bought the wellcraft name but nothing else those of us with pre 2008 boats have a ruff time finding parts

Thanks CptBill... I’m in New Zealand which makes sourcing suitable hardware a bit more difficult. Nothing locally available is large enough. I’ve removed the original 1/2” bow eye and it’s no problem finding a replacement the same thickness of a suitable length, but the ctr spacing of 2” is almost impossible. I’ve ordered an Epco one with 1 7/8” ctr and will make it work...

That's good, With pre 2008 boats you need to be creative
