Buffing the back of the boat and the Buffer caught the little cable that holds the door from opening to much.

How is your wood working skills?

You can get marine grade plastic material and make a replacement. The material works like wood.

Yea....I know, I've already been in touch with a local plastics shop, just one more thing on my list of things to do, I'm probably going to do the other side to so that Both doors match, I'm afraid if I only do the one it will look funny.

That'll buff right out. LOL

You have another locker on the other side don't you? If so, consider getting both replaced. They may get very, very close, but will never match perfectly unless you replace both. Even if the color is off, it won't be noticeable if they're both the same.

I know you don't want to hear that, but better than realizing you have to order another and go through process again AFTER you've installed the first one.

Just a thought.

Yea some guy at the building working on his boat said (and he was serious) "they sell plastic glue, that will fix that right up" ....I'm thinking, yea if you want a big ugly crack running down the center of it...making it look like an a## crack!

I went to a local plastics shop, they had the same acrylic and for both locker doors it was $110, and he is going to cut them, drill the latch holes and finish the edges for another $100....for that price its not worth me messing with them!

I know a couple hundred bucks is a lot of cash but for two doors that is not bad. IMHO
