    Wondering if anyone has replaced these?

    The find on mine are showing corrosion and would like to replace if I can track down. They are in a plastic frame, and pop out of an opening about 9" square.

    Could not seem to find any manufacturer name on it. Seems like should be a relatively standard item.

    Figured it could not hurt to ask!

    thanks
    Mike

    Beard Marine A/C in Ft. Lauderdale sells grates that are similar or might even be the same brand. Sam's Marine also in Ft. Lauderdale can source them too.

    Hi, I was able to track down the original manufacturer. They were made by MSI Marine Systems, Inc out of North Carolina.

    I was able to get in touch with them easily. Unfortunately, they changed their design slightly at some point a number of years ago and no longer make a size that will fit the existing opening. My current opening are 9 1/2" square, the new models would be 10". Over the winter going to look into trimming the openings to make the new ones fit if possible.
