Re: Need a Litte Personal Advice - Move a 1990 F32?

First I agree with Gettaway, fixing the gas leak should be number one on the list. second, if I read this right you use this boat as your home, so without it you will need to find a temp place to rent while you shop for a new boat. Is that right? So, if you put your boat up for sale you will need to...

Re: Advice on buying 1980 F-30 fixer upper?

RWS is right, A lot of people can't separate dreams from reality and look at a old boat and see themselves behind the wheel and bouncing off of waves. Down here in Florida I would say 80% of the project boats never hit the water. years go by, money gets spent, and the owner ends up selling the boat ...

Re: Pet Peeves?

The new labor pool that feels like they are doing me a favor when I hire them and then feel like they can do my job better after 2 weeks. What ever happened to talking about your qualifications and your desire to work here. Nowadays, Some of the first questions I get are- how many vacation days do y...

Re: Saw a Trojan on Sea Hunt

From what I know they ordered two boats for the show and Lloyd Bridges used one for personal use. They also ordered half of another one to film the cabin shots. Over the years several people have claimed that they have the TV show boat and they all say they are restoring the boat for tours. Its hard...

Re: F36 sliding door paint

I had it done when I painted the boat. It's a job for sure. Lots of little spots that need to be sanded. Is the paint peeling away or can you get by with just a cover coat.

Re: possible engine replacement

Many have done the swap and never heard of a issue , I have never notice a offset as the shaft always came out centered to the keel . Anyone else run into this ? I have heard of this but I have never run into a problem. Both my old 26 and my current 28 Chris Craft have been repowered with opposite ...

And I hate it when a guest say something like "um, the sink doesn't work" when I'm docking the boat.

Re: possible engine replacement

Having done exactly what you are planning I would measure the replacement engine at least 5 times. Including the motor mount and shaft coupling locations. I had to change the prop, trans pump, intake manifold, flame arrestor, and exhaust manifolds. After all that I still had to cut a notch out of th...
