Where can I get replacement siding...dented mine

#1 Post by BARRACUDA1968 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:53 am

I got caught in some nasty wind on the river a couple weeks ago and hit some 4 foot rollers. The water dented in my siding on the front of the boat. I had a Misty Harbor boat dealer contact the factory and they don't use the same supplier anymore. My boat is an 04 with 55 hours on it so I want to put it back to like new condition. My insurance company will pay to have the hole boat re-skinned if need be but where can I get the siding for it?

Thank you!

Brett

check out roofing companies that make their own panels, the material comes on rolls and it will have to be laid out on a big table, traced out and cut...

I assume you'rs is aluminum? painted?

I was told mine is Vinyl?? I thought it was aluminum myself but I had a paintless dent removal person look at it and that's what he said. I did manage to find "pontoon" websites that carries new fencing. I'm wondering if it's all pretty much the same or if there is one product better than another??

Get some sheet aluminum. Fasten it as you slowly bend it around. Have the body shop paint it and put the stickers on.

vinyl huh. I'm skeptical with how its bent but maybe. Vinyl isn't used much anymore. Mainly aluminum. Can be found from a lot of pontoon places only. https://fenceforpontoons.com/collection ... e-paneling. Bending back all the tabs along the rail that hold the fencing on and replacing it is no small chore and it will never look the same. Especially since your tabs look like they are on the outside versus the inside. Atleast when you bend them down and hammer them back when they are on the inside the seats hide most of it. heres a video on whats involved generally. Just redid my boat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LjEDHp17iM&t=2s
