Scupper inserts

Postby David West » Tue May 08, 2012 6:07 pm

Today the insert in one of the two scupper holes in the well just outside the sliding door of my PDQ 36 shattered. I need to replace them both. The insert is 3 1/2" OD , plastic and is simply seated in the opening. Does anyone know where I can get replacements? There must be other aging boat that have had the same problem. Can anyone help?

Did you ever find a replacement cover. Mine have done the same thing.
Thanks,
Mike

Not an answer directly, but I placed a wood floor over the fiberglass. Cooler, more comfortable, and the sand falls through, keeping it neater. I lift the wood every few months and hose out under it.

As a result, I don't need the screens.

If memory serves, we used simple floor drain covers. Have a look at Home Depot or Lowes.
