Lightbulb Replacement Seat Base/Slider Panels Needed - '92 Maxum 1800SR

I'm trying to locate replacement panels for the lounge seats on my '92 Maxum 1800SR. One that I have removed (was completely busted loose - plastice failure) had only a plain white label with a part number 50602 and manufactured by Accurate Plastics, Inc. I have not had any look by trying the Google search for Accurate Plastics, there are many in the U.S. and abroad. Trudeaus - Spokane, WA tried to help but they came up empty except to say that some after market parts might work. They had no supplier to direct me to though. I purchased my boat new in 1992 and have done my best in keeping it in excellent condition. Lookiing for help in locating these boat seat base/slider panels. Appreciate any help that the Maxum Owners Club can provide.

I have uploaded a picture taken with the seat in the lounge position and the part(s) in question visible. That photo has been added to my album which is public. Check it out.

seapuppy - I am in search of the black panel that is attached to the seat base with screws. The part is identical on each seat base of the sun lounger seat set-up in my '92 1800SR. The plastic fails in the recessed areas where it attaches to the plywood base of the seat. Makes for a wobbly, unsafe seat. Thanks for your reply and appreciate any help.

Is there any way you could do some fiberglassing on the inside of the panel to repair it?

Hogger - Thanks for the reply & suggestion. Yes, I may have to repair the panels with some fiberglass repair. My hope was to find some replacement panels rather than repair them. Still hoping for that "needle in the haystack" that I'll find the replacements somewhere out there. Happy New Year to all my Maxum owner friends. Can't wait for the summer of 2011 to get back out on my boat, winter is always too long!

Try Here:

if you need to speak to a maxum customer service..please call 360-435-8957
or email them at
boathelp@usmboats.com

There are many cross-referenced Bayliner parts that have different product numbers, but are identical and interchangeable with Maxum parts. you might get lucky. who cares if it's grey instead of black. Just a thought.

shrew - Yeh, don't care if they are grey and thanks for the contact info. I would have thought that Trudeaus would have checked for cross reference to Bayliner parts but maybe they didn't. Thanks, I'll post the results. Thanks!

All - Well my search to US Marine has come up empty, they say "no replacements are available, so sorry". That came from Patricia Hanson, Parts Manager with US Marine. Looks like good ole American ingenuity will have to come up with a fix! Any suggestions out there of an adhesive that will work with that plastic and hold up? Appreciate everone's help to this date.

Lightbulb Good Ole American Ingenuity

Hey All,
Well when you are left to come up with a repair method the mind has to work overtime. Thanks to Locite Corp and their epoxy for plastic I think I've made repairs that will work. Biggest concern now is "will it hold up to the abuse of the boarders, etc" that make home in my boat during the summer. Found the hinges between the seat bases and backs completely broke thru. May have found some from Vaeda that will work, waiting for the info on where these hinges can be purchased. That's how this is going for now, just running out of time to get it all back together and on the water.

Thumbs up Seat Rehab

Hi All,

Well this project has definitely become more involved and time consuming that I thought it would be. Had to replace the plywood seat base panels also (starting to rot from old age / 1992). Did have some luck in replacement seat skins. Thanks to Jeanette Hamilton @ usmboats.com, she sent me the contact info for Canvas Plus who has the patterns/upholstery rights from Maxum. Hope to have it all back together by the end of May. Tackling only the port side for now, not enough time to get both sides done. Well, another project for the next offseason. Keep on boatin!
