    Looking for a easy replacement for my interior door handles. 1996 48 ocean
    Searching the web and can't seem to find one without mods to the door.
    Anyone else do this before?

    I think I'd stop by Norwalk Cove with them. Doubt they'd have in stock, but they might be able to get them for you. They're pretty resourceful.

    Izerwaren In ft Lauderdale has a ton of handles and locks for yachts. Not cheap but they have stuff!

    As I have the same boat I have to ask, why the need for new? I have not had to do this, yet, but looking at your pictures the design is pretty much the same as 1920's to 50's housing locks which are rebuildable. Have you tried to take it apart to repair?

    The finish on all of them is very tarnished and polishing has minimal effect.

    Try searching for ‘Southco McCoy’ they are the manufacturer selling through a few distributors. About confusing left hand, right hand and in swing or out swing. Have options for most of the doors.

    Thanks for the info, also going to a local plating shop to see about having them plated in satin or brushed nickel.

    That's a good and probably your easiest option.

    That's the ticket. Get them cleaned up and refinished. No need to replace something that's working well. These replacements are pricey.

    I saw a process on Counting Cars awhile back for spray on chrome. Looks good initially but DK how good or bad it holds up. Do you know if they're talking about that or actual dipped chrome? (Have to assume similar process can be done for nickel or even bronze.)

    Update, everything came back from the electroplating shop. Satin brushed nickel and looks great.
    Very happy with them and all back together with no mods.

    Have been thinking about doing the same thing. Would like to see some pictures with everything put back together. Any price change from the original estimate?

    Nice job! Hinges and all. Added $10k to the boat's value! :) Looks great.

    Do you still have these available? Are the springs in the handled still work proper to keep door latched?
