    Sounds like an opportunity. Shall we use engine turned stainless, color anodized aluminum or carbon fiber? Or maybe faux ostrich hide? Let's see pictures of those custom dash panels soon!

    I just purchased an '02 217 SunDeck and also need dash panels.  There has to be someone that can get these things, or makes an aftermarket part.  I have looked all over the internet with no luck.  Does anyone have any recommendations, even if it's someone that would manufacture one?

    Capt_Steve,

    Thanks for the lead, but unfortunately they weren't much help.  She sent over what they had for part numbers, but after literally hours of looking online, still no luck,  There has to be someone/somebody out there that has these, or has aftermarket that would fit, something?

    Hey guys...it's starting to look like Flying V was on to something. Custom might be the only option. These dash panels were manufactured by Uniforce, and they are no longer available. Even checking with factoryboatparts.com didn't find anything.

    My 2001 GS 201 had a dull and cracked dash. After failing to find a replacement, I decided to repair it. I took it off, used epoxy to fill the cracks, primed it and spray painted it a medium gloss brown to simulate the original color.  I used an outdoor furniture spray paint from Rustoleum.  After reinstalling it, it looks amazing.  Cost... $20.

    It has been two summers since I did that. My boat is used on salt water down in the Florida Keys.  The sun is brutal, but it still looks great after a year.

    I made a new dash out of mahogany. I traced the old dash onto the panel I made cut it out sanded it down to 3/16. rounded off the edges with a router. I installed my new depth finder in the center and new yamaha gauges matched to my new 200hp yamaha. looked great until I fiberglassed the back to keep it from splitting. The fiberglass caused it to bend. So I have to make another. The new one will not be fiberglassed.

    I have had a local plastic fabricator make replacement panels for several of my Hurricane Sun Decks. He just made two sets for me. One for me and another for a SD237 owner who I believe is on this forum. The fabricator has several templates for Hurricane dashes. I will post pictures in a separate posting of the templates used, the finished producy and the bronze finish.

    I am new to the discussion group and own a 2002 232GS with a cracked dash.  Also several of the instruments seem on the way out or already stopped working.  Please send me contact info on Fabricator.  I'm in Naples.  Thanks

    Thank you!  I originally purchase the boat from dealer in Cape Coral.  Between the two I'm sure I can get my instrumentation and dash sorted out.

    They are awesome to do business with and do excellent work, I think you'll be very happy with the panels.  Make sure you tell Isabella you heard about them from our forum site.
