Hi everyone,
does anyone know where you can get hinges for the bathroom door on a 26X
I found the company that makes them but its in the states and they want $50 US
just to deliver 2 hinges.

I suppose you could use a local hinge an bog up / cover the old holes? How much is a suitable local / ebay hinge?

Hi Rob,

I own an American car and have to buy parts from the States more often than I care to, however I have learned the cheapest options for freight, first the Seadog hinges you need are only $10us a pair at BWY, look here http://shop.bwyachts.com/SearchResults. ... ge&Submit=
Next, use USPS flat rate international box 4 pounds at $36.25us, see here https://postcalc.usps.com/Calculator/Ma ... =12&dvi=10

Still a lot of money for two hinges so I would look around BWY web site and see what else you may want, they have some cool stuff, as long as it fits in this box and is less than 4 pounds.

Cheers, Den.
