    If anyone has gear housing case Part No. 41100832 or knows where we can purchase one, please contact me. I know the thruster is discontinued. Hopefully there are some parts laying around out there that can help us out.

    I've just asked a buddy in the UK if he has one, if one is available he will be first to know,

    I called all over for some parts for mine last summer and found the only place with those I needed was French Creek Marina. They have quite a bit of the discontinued QL parts. Call the owner Wilber Wahl at 315-686-3621, he is very helpful.

    Good luck

    A couple of years ago I was in the same sad condition. Was looking on e-bay and found http://greatlakesskipper.com/ They had a few discontinued units (NIB) and pretty cheap.
    For obsolete parts, check out here and other shops like Sailors exchange, Sailorman, Boaters resale shops, FlounderPounder and others.

    I'll have to check, May still have that case. We just needed the motor.

    I got one about 3 years ago for a BP 1200 from Bristol Marine (905) 891-3777. I doubt they have any, but you never know.

    Thanks for all your advice and help. Have decided to sink the money into a new motor and gear housing instead of something obsolete. At least we'll be able to get parts easier if something goes wrong with the new one!
