Need to Know Name of Part on 2000 Glastron SX 175
« on: April 05, 2021, 10:49:55 AM »
I am trying to figure out how to find the Starboard side Cover that says "Glastron" circled in the picture. It fell off last week and sunk.
I have circled the part, but everywhere I call they don't seem to know what I am talking about.  I say its the blower vent cover that has the decal on it, can anyone tell me what the actual name of this part is? 

I'm a Glastron Newbie, had the boat out for about 2 hours Friday.

You're going to have to find a parts hull somewhere.  The Glastron entity that built that boat was 3 or 4 corporations ago...so you won't be able to call up a dealer and say...I need part 'X', unfortunately.

This is probably a dumb question, but is it safe to drive on the water without that cover over the blower vents?

Welcome to the forum ChrissyMir !

I don't think you would have a problem with running boat without the cover.
Depending on the side it's on .. one side sucks air in .. and the other side blows air out to vent your bilge / engine compartment.
The small amount of water that could get in will be pumped out by your bilge pump.

Guessing it's called a " bilge vent cover" ?


You could try searching ..

Check eBay from time to time .. for Glastron and Glastron parts ..

Also check your local (Kansas ?) Craigslist for junk / cheap / parts boats.

Boats ..

Boat parts ..

You could also search Craigslist for part in city's and states around you as shipping wouldn't be that bad.
