  • 88 grady white fish box hinge

    I have an 1988 grady white 204c overniter and I need a replacement hinge for my fish box. I went to my dealer and they said that they don't sell them any more so I went to the supply stores and none of them sold it. Does anyone know where I can find some? Thanks

      Call Grady and ask for the name of the hinge OEM vendor, then attempt contact directly ...

          Maybe someone on the greatgrady.com forum can help. I have an 82, can't picture the hinge right now though. Can you post a picture? Good luck.

              I think I found the answer. I went to greatgrady.com fourm and found someone who had the same problem. They suggested togo to http://www.bosunsupplies.com/Deck_hinges.CFM and I think that they have the hinge I am looking for. I will mesure the hinge when I get home tonight and let you know if its the right one.Thanks again Capt'n mike

                  Did ya call Grady and ask for the name of the OEM vendor? Lots of stuff is no longer carried by Grady for older units, but that doesn't mean it isn't still made (and for sale) by the OEM. I'm basically rebuilding an '86 225G, and it's amazing how much stuff can be had from OEMs after Grady says "no mas".

                    I did e-mail Grady White and they told me the hinge manufacturer is no longer in business. They suggested to go to west marine which I did with no luck.

                      To end this story. What I had to do is by a strap hinge and cut and modify one end.

                        I found these and they are close to the right size Atwood 66391-3 2-13/16 X 1-1/2"
                        I think they will work.
