Binnacle Handle Replacement?

Recommended Posts

I have a crusty binnacle.  (I know...TMI, a personal problem.). Anyway, I'd like to replace the handle.  Can I use one off of a newer Yamaha 704?  Anybody in the Tampa area have one they can spare?  I can replace the whole thing but it works fine. Maybe I'll just polish and paint.

Not sure if just the handle is replaceable, yours is in a lot better shape than the one was on my dad's 92 bonefisher. His was spreading and cracking the plastic, we replaced it with a newer binnacle. No regrets, so much smoother and an updated look. Wasn't too bad money wise nor work wise changing out, not a bad job if you end up replacing with new.

Looked into replacing a few parts, it was cheaper to replace the entire binnacle, my black trim cover had two snapped of screws and two frozen and the handle looked like yours

I think I'll replace the whole thing, the more I look at it.  Dale's right on...I have 2 snapped screws on the cover and the decal looks bad.  Rea crusty under the cover too. Way better in the long run to change it.
