Am I happy to find this site!!! Purchased the hull in 1990, the hull was sound, interior repainted white & needed major cosmetic work. The serial # on the bill of sale was 3314265 which leads me to beleive its a "Currituck". It had a side console which I removed and replaced with a new mahogany exact copy plus a new 90 HP Johnson. so much for the background. Don't think I've put more than 200 hours total over the years and have winterized/covered every year. Recently retired and have a bit of time to getting her back in action and a long way around to my questions. Doe's anyone have any idea where I can purchase a ready made trailoring cover that will fit this boat, aside from a custom $$ made cover.
I had a Taylor cover but old age & repairs renders it NG. The boat has very high bow rails and graduates to a low profile, I did use wooden spreaders over the console and rear cockpit to maintain the shape of the cover, which also covered the motor. Final question (for now) I discovered the (plastic) housing that contains the ignition key, and single control lever for shift and speed has developed major cracks and generally appears to be dried out, maybe from age. Can the housing be replaced
or do I need to get the whole unit replaced along with the cables to the motor. Being very honest, I don't even know the proper name for the unit. Have looked in marine catalogs but never saw it pictured ....or..
is it considered part of thr motor? Thanks for your time, I'd appreciate your time and any feedback you care to offer.
