Default just picked up a 97 1900sr

currently have a 97 wellcraft eclipse 2000s that has a completely destroyed interior, wife was supposed to re-do the interior if i rebuilt the motor, she didnt do a thing to it. so ive been searching for a suitable boat to swap the motor from the wellcraft into so i can scrap that hull. came across a 97 1900sr with a almost mint interior that supposedly has a bad motor. picked it up tonight for what i feel was a decent price.

couple things i could use a lead on if anyone has any -
the steering wheel is delaminated and split in half
tonneau and bow covers are pretty worn
gauge cluster is starting to get brittle

Welcome aboard Turbocorrado!!!

You're probably looking at an aftermarket replacement wheel.

Tonneau cover will be handled by a local marine canvas guy. There are no stock canvas items, this is an industry standard to have custom canvas work.

Gauges are Faria. They have a limited lifetime warranty, however that is for functionality, not cosmetic appearance. The panel they are mounted on will be a tough find. Probably easier to fabricate a aluminum replacement and have a wrap with a pattern of our choice to cover it.

was very close to it. she even recruited her mom to help, her mom is less productive than her. 2 years ago i gave her the sunpad to do. after spending an entire 6 hours working on the rear sunpad, all they had done is bought a piece of plywood, and made measurements that were wrong, didnt even make any cuts in 6 hours, damn thing didnt even need new wood.......when i tried to take over the upholstery i was told i dont know what i was doing and she wouldnt bring the sunpad back to our house. no progress was made after that. 2 years of boating with a missing sunpad

Can you post a picture of what you have as it may help identify what's missing.

bought the closest latch assy they had, was to big to fit in the spot, but i was able to combine the pieces from my old one and the pieces from the new one that the old one was missing to make the old one work


also got the motor and outdrive swapped over from my wellcraft and scrapped its hull. was going to test fire it tonight but it got to late so i just put the battery in for the first time to test the electronics out. to my surprise almost everything works. but this led me to a few new questions

my nav light doesnt work (assuming its just the bulb) my wellcraft had a dual switch for the lights, on NAV it lit both front and rear lights, on ANC it only lit the rear. this boat has a switch for nav, and a switch for anchored. when the nav switch is pressed is the rear light supposed to come on?? it works on anchor, but when only the nav switch is pressed it doesnt light up.

also there is a switch for courtesy lights, but i didnt see anything light up anywhere and i didnt see any spots for lights. where would they be if i had them??

Yes the rear light should be lite when Nav is on.

You probably don't have any coursty lights in a 1900.
