Replacements - Drawers

Need to find a source for a couple of plastic drawers for my Islander 30. They have a lip around the edge, and the teak face is glued and screwed to the front.

The boat is 30 years old, and I have no idea where to get a replacement for these?

Anyone had to find something similar?

Since the face/front of the drawers is a teak board you can use just about anything as the inside container. One place to look in Home Furnishings for closet drawers or even office supply stores for "in/out" trays or similar type items.

A drawer is nothing but a box.

You can remove the face. Build a new box the same size as the drawer. If it has opening hardware, transfer from old drawer, or replace both sections with new.
Mount the face on the new box for a perfect match with others in cabinet.

Have I missed the point?

Depending upon how the drawer system is build in the boat there is another option. My boat had pull out drawers and the screwed on teak face boards. However the inside of the cabinet was constructed to that each drawer was surrounded by plywood. I doubled the capacity of the space by removing the drawer "box" and mounting the Teak face board with hinges onto the face of the cabinet. I now fold down the face board and have twice the space inside versus having all the dead air space around each drawer box. Basically I turned the individual drawers into small cabinets.
- - I did keep the galley drawers the same as pulling them out to get to the assortment of stuff inside is more practical.
