Not as simple as picking one up at the local parts store. The alternator is marine specific. Is the original alternator available to take to a local re-builder?

I don't have the specific part number you are looking for. Maybe someone on here will.

A few things about alternators that may be of help to you. As stated above, the best and usually cheapest recommended method around here is to rebuild the original. Second is to call www.skidim.com as a source for a new one. Before buying a new one, you might want to check your ground wire. They are prone to corrosion and many people, myself included, have found resecuring the ground wire to the back of the alternator saved a rebuild.

Just in case you dont know or someone else finds this thread, inboard electronics, including the alternator are marine specific. They are built to reduce the exposed spark and thus keep your from sparking gas fumes in the bilge. Auto alternator is a good way to make your boat go boom!

Thanks for the info and responses. I am sure the alternator still works but I wanted to replace it for pure cosmetic reasons as it currently looks like crap!!
