Re: Pulse's Per Rotation

Makes sense. 4 stroke engine... I wouldn't have guessed that without a little extra thought but sometimes the simple answer is right in front of us.

Re: replacing screens in port holes

West Marine sells replacemetn hatch and port holw gasket material but I would try and bring a piece with you so you can match it up. In the future if you apply a little silicone lubricant to the rubbere it keeps it from sticking to the port hole window and it wont deteriorate as fast. I recently fou...

Re: replacing screens in port holes

I have a 1990 10 Meter Mid Cabin and I replaced the screens with ease. If you open the port hole then remove the rubber gasket (lightly glued in) it will expose the screen. Remove the screen and clean the surface well with acetone to remove any of the existing glue residue. Place oversized replaceme...

Re: electrical issues HELP!!!

You might try and determine if you have all of your master DC switches on and if you have your batteries connected correctly. I have a 1990 10 Meter Mid Cabin and one battery feeds half of the DC load and the other battery picks up the other half the split is not even based on number of items but cl...

Hey guys, Getting ready for spring and I have a Kohler 5kw generator that doesn't want to stay running. I have the service manual and I am an electrical engineer so you would think I should be able to figure it out but I just don't have the time. It is currently removed from the boat so location is ...

Re: 13 meter specs

Google Trojan 13 meter express on the web. That's how I found that old thread. It does say 43" LOA but LOA has been a moving target over the years. My 1990 10 meter mid cabin is stated as 33' LOA but measure 39'8" from tip to tip. the 1990 model 10 meter has a totally different swim platform than th...

Rust removal magic in a bottle

RWS, if you have a water conditioning supplier (Water softeners etc..) get some rust prohibiter that is normally added to the water softener salt. Use it as a paste with a scrub brush and the rust will disappear forever. Up in my neck of the woods the trade name is "Iron Out" and is available at Men...

If I were in the Market and couldn't find a nice Trojan it would have to be a Tiara. But then again I would need a boat full of cash for the purchase. I'll gladly run my 10 Meter mid cabin for another 10-20 years

Follow up to my previous post- Two years ago I had a Trojan 320 express (Carver with Trojan badges) and hauled it to the closest marina to launch for the year. The marina had a sign clearly posted that on certain days using the ramp was not allowed unless you were a winter storage or slip customer. ...
