zodiac help

Hi there i have a zodiac similar to the one i have hopefully shown in the pictures. I am missing the bit that holds the front splash cover up. It fits in two large cicular rubber holes at the front and helps the splash guard keep its shape. I assume it is made out of plastic or perspex. My question is does anyone no where to get one how it atatches and wether it would be posible to make one. Thanks

The original was plastic, you might be able to get away with using some water pipe to create the arch?

Does it just go in the holes or does it rest on the tubes? Has anyone else made one?

The original was probably made of 5mm plastic with rounded end sections that fitted in the rubber recess patches on the tubes. I have a Zodiac MkII CGT on the west coast that uses exactly the same thing. Another member on here may be able to assist and give you a template to make one. I'd have done it for you - but I'm no where near the boat.

I guess you could try the blue water pipe small stuff .
fashion a small piece of wood to fit into each and and reduce the ends again to fit the sockets.

I'm sure that would work. It was flat 5mm plastic, probably 800mm wide x 250mm high (from memory), almost in an arc shape.

O.k. i may have a go at using the blue water pipe and turning a couple of ends to fit in the holes on the boat. Its a shame no one nows if you can buy the original part anymore. Thanks for all your help though
