any suggestions for companies who rechrome parts for whalers. i have an older motauk and some of the original brightwork/hardware appears to be un available from boston whaler. this has left me thinking about having the original repaired. thanks. mitchell

I don't know where you live, but in larger cities there are places that rechrome.

What parts are you talking about?

The rechrome places will want to know what the base metal is. pot or brass. if the chrome is pitting it is pot metal and can be expensive to rechrome.

I wanted to rechrome my Morse control, but it would cost as much as a new one, about $220. So I will by a new one when I really need it.

Also, check out the OEM board here. Most all parts are available from the original manufacturer, not whaler. I have bought many parts for my '79 newport from posting on this site.

You'll have to go back 2 years when looking at that OEM board.

Hello,
I recently saw some of this company's rechroming work.
It appeared well done and Wade explained that he utilizes a longer time process producing a more durable product.
