Hi Wavy,

You don`t say why you need replacements, do you just want a direct replacement, or is there a mechanical problem with them. If you wish to keep them, and there IS a problem, why not remove them and the locking mech, and take it to a locksmith, they may be able to repair the original, or at least match it up, with sometning else and keep your original handles.

Years ago, on my Daytona 955i, i snapped the only ignition key in the fuel tank locking cap. I was getting rediculous quotes in the high hundreds for new lock sets and keys. That was until a works colleague suggested i take the ignition lock down to a local locksmith, where they will dismantle the lock, and make a key fit, then reassemble the lock, and cut another key on their machine. Result, a £25.00 bill, plus two new ignition lock security bolts.  

With this in mind, i would be very surprised if a local locksmith could`nt do a similar service for your boats locks?.
