91 PS 190 Engine Cover Cup Holder

I'm wondering if anybody knows if you can buy replacement cup holder assemblies for older MCs that mount in the engine cover. Not just the cup holders but that entire piece along with the vent on it. Mine is quite dirty looking and nothing seems to clean it up.

Give your local dealer a call. I beleive he is down in Boynton Beach, he can call MC to see if by chance they have one. I have also done quite a bit of business with MC of Arkansas(mcboats.com). They understand about keeping older boats looking new.

George, a little off topic, but did you ever replace any skins on your boat? If so, which dealer did you find had the best deals?

If you find one, please post where you got it and how much. I need one for a 94. I tried to recover mine, but it didn't work.

Thanks

Doug I tried several times to get prices on skins, I even gave the dealer the part numbers, After calling the dealer three times and going by I gave up. The second dealer called me back to see if I wanted "something" after having my e-mail for over a month, by then I sold the boat.

And George, that was your local dealer that never got back with you on prices?

If so, I talked to them today (called 3 times before getting the parts guy on the phone). I've learned not to give them the option of calling me back as it never seems to work out.

The last time I ordered a skin, I went through Daryl Moore in Houston and had the part number that I got from MC ready for them. They're not especially good about calling me back either, but the price was right.

I'm not real antsy to make this purchase anyway as my interior is in really good shape for an 11 year old boat. Just some small spots/nicks here and there and I like to keep everything looking nice. I suppose I should not worry about it for a while. I'm going to upgrade the noise reduction on the motorbox in a few weeks anywya. But getting the prices will help me with this decision.

That would be the local dealer and a neighboring state dealer. If I were in your shoes I would get what is the needed for the drivers seat 3 skins, observers bottom cushion, and the square observers back as skins and hold onto them. (engine skin if yours is worn) I know MC has declined to make some of the older skins and every year your boat gets older your rolling the dice.

I need the plastic piece the cup holders fit into. mine was faded pretty bad and I tried to recover it. I peeled the old vinyle off, but I cannot get the new vinyle to look right. Do you guy's have any ideas. I haven't called a dealer yet because I won't need it until spring.

I had a local shop do the driver's seat base because, frankly, nobody ever sees it. According to the local dealer, the discontinued skins for the early 90s are more in the area of boats that weren't big sellers. Good advice all the same. I'll start saving up for the engine box, the side panels, and the bow seat back that needs some attention. The rest of it is mint at the moment.
