Re: 36 tri-cabin fuel tanks

Rhino, I just wanted to add here that as you get this new-to-you boat straightened out, I believe you will really enjoy it. They are really rugged battleships and present the best of many boating worlds to their owners. A very sea-worthy and easily handled vessel plus a planing hull that is fast eno...

Re: 36 tri-cabin fuel tanks

Hi Rhino, Glad to try to help although, so far I haven't had many actual answers for you. Prowler's advice is very sound. The original invoice as related to your Trojan's serial number may give the people at Beacon some idea as to where that extra tank (long range fuel) may have come from. It sounds...

Re: 36 tri-cabin fuel tanks

Dear Rhino, Don't know what the second tank on the port side is for. I didn't have a second tank of the left side in my 1974 Tricabin. So just like you, that tank's a mystery to me. :) Next time your on your new boat, please remove the salon floor hatch to the bilge that you mentioned in your previo...

Re: Looking For Trojan 1992-2003 Express For Sale

Dear gusssd87, Sorry for the late reply, I just noticed your post last night. I'm sure you've checked out Yachtworld for a 370, 390 and 410 Trojan Express individually. There are five models listed there at the moment. But those may have been the examples you were referring to when you mentioned you...

Re: 36 tri-cabin fuel tanks

By the way, Rhino - In regard to the steps leading up from the rear bedroom to the salon, you can pull down the top step (it's riser is hinged) in order to get access to the starboard side gas tank level sensor. (You'll also notice the fresh water tank, I believe) On the port side, you can look unde...

Re: 36 tri-cabin fuel tanks

Hi Rhino, I owned a 1974 Tricabin for 16 years before buying my current Trojan. As you already know, the two gas tanks are located directly under the salon floor. The fresh water tank is almost invisible when you hop down into the bilge, especially if you have a genny located there as well. But havi...

Re: Aaron Bocknek -- 1960 to 2016

Hi Mary Ann and Chuck, Well, that was quite an anniversary present. So nice to hear that Aaron's boat is in the hands of those who will take care of it. I had wondered about that situation because you never know how these things are going to work out. With Trojans, we are all driving old boats. They...

Re: Bomb Cyclone

I think their plan was always to head up Delaware Bay to the C&D Canal. Then run down Chesapeake Bay to Norfolk. Long old haul but probably the way to do it. On the other side of the equation, Gary is somewhat unpredictable and could conceivably try to straight-line it for Norfolk on the outside.

Re: Bomb Cyclone

Hi Just got word that my friends left Sandy Hook early this morning for Cape May. They ran into bad weather and made the correct decision to bail. They made it safely inside via Barnegat Inlet which they said presented no problems on their approach. I had noticed some negative posts elsewhere on the...

Bomb Cyclone

Hi All, One of my best friends and his wife are on their way south, cruising to their eventual destination in the Bahamas from Kingston Ontario. They got a late start due to a long list of personal preparations and the usual final boat fit up. Last Thursday, they were just north of New York City on ...

Re: WOT

Away! Are you my twin? I'm 70, live in Ontario, am good with wood and like you I tend to never open up my throttles. Don't know about you but I don't seem to suffer many mechanical failures nor run over things either and I think my slowpoke style is part of that :) But I have had to run from a storm...

Re: Farewell To A Beautiful Lady

Supposedly the two happiest days of a " boaters" life is the day we buy'em and the day we sell'em......... unless we love them. Well Big D - I am feeling your pain. I suppose we won't be missing you because you'll still be around, which is great but I'll miss those Big Blue 440's. You have always be...
