  • New Crownie looking for help

    Hey All - We are in process of purchasing a 2003 266BR and are excited. It only has 420 hrs and is going through inspection now, but will be a great starter boat for our family.

    I was wondering if anyone had a 2003 Brochure available (preferably electronic). I have looked all around and cannot find 2003.

    I am also wondering where you find parts for older Crownlines? We will need a new bow cover (might as well buy both right?) and I would like to purchase bow filler cushions since the original purchaser does not have them.

    TIA and look forward to taking her maiden voyage (with us) in the next couple weeks!

      Welcome aboard from Woodridge, Illinois. Try this first: https://www.ebay.com/str/budsdiscountmarine and second, https://www.greatlakesskipper.com/. Many CHQ'ers go to local canvas/upholstery companies to have custom canvas made. With a template they can make Bow Filler Cushions. Several guys on this Forum made their own. Checkout Bald Mike's: https://www.baldmikes.com/boats.html. Where will you be boating most?

                      Welcome from Colorado.

                      Bechman is right on. Your local upholstery guy can make the bow cushions while they have the boat to make the bow cover.

                      Those cushions are difficult to find otherwise.
