Re: Bottom Paint

Yes. You want to use a product that is going to repel the type of fouling you can expect where you are using the boat. Environmental regulations may also limit what you can use (bottom paints used to leach a lot of copper to do the job and eventually got outlawed).

Re: running a twin engine slower...

Would start by double checking what your idle speed is and can it be reduced a bit. I have been able to get my 360s to idle around 650rpm in the past and get the speed down around 3, but then you are much more affected by any winds or currents. You could also try dropping your trim tabs and see if t...

Re: 75 F32 Ignition Switches

From what I understand, because I last started and stopped the engines from the lower helm. I need the switches there to be on in order to start from the upper helm. What I was trying to say is if you start them from the lower station and the engine quits while you are running, it has to be restart...

Re: 75 F32 Ignition Switches

The other thing is - on the bridge do you have the right switches? Should be three position 'off-on-momentary/start'. As long as you have the three position switch it should work fine. If not, perhaps a previous owner replaced the switches with the wrong type. And to echo what prowlersfish said, you...

Re: Trojan 255 Information

Looks to me like Trojan hull but custom superstructure. Helm, cabin door, superstructure shape definitely not typical of Trojan construction. Seeing interior would help confirm if there are any Trojan elements in it. Also first picture that shows a bit of side deck shows wood (looks rotted too?). If...

Re: Monomatic toilet

Like Prowlersfish said, this is a recirculating system. You will have an incoming water feed to the head that goes to the right hand side (looking at it from the front). Just to its left will be a vent fitting that goes out through a through-hull. You may (should) have a shutoff valve for the water ...

Re: 75 F32 Accessories Switch

I believe Trojan installed them for any Accessories that maybe added latter . I have 2 myself . +1 It would have started out as an additional 15A circuit for whatever you may want to wire to something, but you would have to trace wires to see if any previous owner has connected it to anything. I ha...

Re: Engine issues

Couple of things... both temps - way too high. Running engines at different RPMs - why? If they were actually in synch you have gauge or wiring issues, if they were not in synch and you just chose to run them at different RPMs..... just gonna leave that one alone for now. 21mph for WOT - you are dow...

Re: F25 Bilge and Limber holes

It's about more than just keeping engine crud out of the forward bilge. The limber holes are there to let water that may accumulate int he bilge flow fore and aft. Not sure about the F25, but a lot of the F boats sit 'bow down', so any water that finds its way in, even if from a rudder post packing ...

Re: Waste Tank Size F-32 V-Berth Location

Not sure what size it is, but at some point in my boat's life someone added a holding tank under the v-berth. Head was the original Monomatic recirculating unit, but they plumbed a waste hose out the back of it to feed the holding tank. The head has a 'discharge' fitting. Tank is a funky shape, desi...

If needed I bet the o-rings could be matched up and that's what fails most the time
I have bought o-rings from the Canadian operation of these guys in the past with good results : https://herculesus.com/ . Just need to identify the specs for ID / OD and planned usage (water, fuel, oil, etc).
