Front Window Plastic Hinge

My 1986 GB42 needs a new top hinge on the front window. The old looks like plastic or similar material with holes drilled to match the frame and window. Does anyone have a source for a replacement?

Re: idea dinghy size for gb42

I found a photo. I’m standing beside our dink.

Re: idea dinghy size for gb42

We have a 10’-4” dink. Fits well. The dink’s bow is about two inches from the starboard rear glass window. The outboard hangs over the cockpit seating a bit. Not too bad.

Re: Stain removal from Teak deck

I like gray! I once dropped some oil on my deck. About two months later the stain was gone.

Re: Replacement Door Hardware

The original door hardware on my 1986 42 is Legge. As rare as hen’s teeth! I’ve heard that Perko makes replacement parts. You’ll need exact measurements to compare. Maybe someone else will chime in here.

Re: Fridge Thermometer

Looks like the same size and hole pattern as my Cooper thermometer. Google Cooper 6142-20. Yours, like the Cooper, can probably be calibrated after carefully removing the plastic cover or from the back and following the manual instruction (again found in Google). New replacements by Cooper are less ...

Re: Holding Tank Not Fully Emptying

Oldersalt, Just thinking out loud (writing), is it possible to install a new pvc pick-up tube in the “side” near the top of your holding tank? Maybe use a 90 elbow or sweep to reach the bottom of the tank. Connect the pvc through the plastic tank with a uniseal. Then attach your discharge hose. Abon...

Re: New GB 36 owner NO KEYS

I’d remove the legge lock from the door and take it to a locksmith along with a blank key.

Re: Duplicate Door key

I've used a blank from ILCO. Look for ILCO 62LG. I can't find it in a local hardware store. Found a source on eBay. Also, eBay has a current listing for a Legge blanks for Grand Banks...$25 for two. No affiliation.

Re: Mysterious RPM Limit

Are the engines connected to a synchronizer? Or individually can not advance past 1500 rpm?
