    Can anyone help me find what part number this is? Or where to get this? I am rehabbing an old dinghy and wanted to replace this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the Forum Renato.

    What type / size dinghy are you rehabbing?
    Re the material in your photos, is it plastic?
    And what is the depth of the section? I am guessing about 4 - 5"?
    I think it is unlikely that you will find the same section still available for sale now, but somebody on here might recognise it?

    You could have a look through these links, and see if they have anything that might be close in shape / size ?

    Thank you so much for the reply. The dinghy is 7.5’ I believe. I don’t know the brand. The material looks like a vinyl. I’ve added a picture of the dinghy for reference.
