2001 X-Star Bow Filler Cushion

Can I get some help from anyone with 2001 X-Star or equivalent making template from their plastic cover that goes under the bow filler cushion. Lost mine in transit day I bought boat 7 years ago and I have never worried about it but now with 2 young kids it would be nice to use that cushion but hate to spend $100 on piece of plastic from dealer! Thanks.

I'd get a sheet of this stuff. I'd use 3/4 and cut it out yourself.I made a motor cover base for my 03 X2.Very strong and has held up great.

I actually have a sheet of something very similar ready to be cut...was just hoping to get a "template" so I could get an exact fit. Thanks.

I would just trace the pattern onto the poly and cut, leaving a little extra where you can sand it to fit snugly. Mine appears to be made of 1/2.

You could trace on cardboard and make a template?

I used plotter paper, taped it above, and shined a light from underneath to see the outline.
