View Full Version : Sick of contacting MC

05-09-2006, 07:01 PM
I have sent emails, called and left messages and used my dealer to get through. My dealer has gotten through but cant ever answer why this is unavailable. I have been told that I can get base color skins for my 92 BF200. All I need is the observer seat bottom skin. And maybe the sundeck. My MC dealer said its unavailable after contacting MC. However, an MC rep said I could get it about 2 months ago. But I have not been able to get any sort of response from them since. Does any one know what the bottom line is? How can I get this damn skins!?

Maybe MYMC can help you?

Britt, which dealer have you tried?

I agree, try Mike, Jim at BAWS or Lex at Rambo.

Britt, here's how I understand it. Officially the cutoff on for anything with accent colors on it was 01/01/2005. The seat base should not be a problem because it is plain white. Not sure about the sundeck. That said, I got some skins with accent colors in about April of last year from Lex at Rambo. If they aren't available, there's a person who can make them for you using the OEM vinyl. There's a post in the FAQ that links to the contact information for this person.

From talking to my local dealer, it appears as though MC has kept this stuff available a lot longer than the competition will remake skins for its customers. I think the cutoff for the other boat maker is something like 7 years or so. But that may be an approximation.

a lot of IO manufactures doen't have matching parts the next model year. We just ordered a new dash shroud for a boat and had to get a glove box shroud to match the color because of 1 years change in color. No I don't own an IO or plan to. There are no laws about how long marine manufactures have to have stuff avalable. The big 3 inboard manufactures are head and heels above the IO manufactures. The inboard manufactures don't have near the production numbers of the IO type mass produced boats.

Hi George. For the record, if you hang on to your new boat for more than 7 years, you might want some spare skins in that time frame just in case. :)

Might be. I inquired about a boat in Houston that had the gray interior. I ultimately decided against it because I was concerned that if I ever needed skins, they might not have those.

Try giving Atlfooter's guy a call. He's supposed to be really good. And it's apparently the same stuff you get from MC.

I have a 91 Barefoot 200 that I had to have the sun deck replaced. I went to a local upholstry guy and had him match it up (almost perfect).
Cost me about 400 bucks with all new padding, but it sure did dress it up.
