The 11M table top is odd shaped. I cut mine down 1/4 inch around the perimeter and laminated the top and sides with corian. The seams are invisible and it came out great. It is heavy though.

For what its worth, my 11M Convertible w/ 671's cruises at 19kts @ 1800 rpm. My last haul showed 30,000 lbs on the lift scales. I believe the scales were inaccurate. Pretty boat Blue Belle - your repaint? Repainted 5 years ago with Awlgrip. The paint has held up very well. This pic was taken during...

Are you sure the exhaust trunk itself is leaking, or perhaps the exhaust hose into the trunk? The boat must be hauled to repair an exhaust trunk leak. It is below the waterline. The repair itself is not difficult. If the trunk is leaking, then remove the plate and reseat.

I'm sure the 10M is similar to the 11M. The outside frame does not connect to the inner frame at all. Rather, the outside frame has tabs that screw in to the core between the exterior and interior fiberglass layers. Terrible design. When the frames begin to leak (and they will) the core gets wet. If...

The walls on your boat are stunning. What type of finish do you have on the teak?

This is a great idea. I intend to run a 3 inch computer fan from the bilges to a 'spare' exhaust vent hose next to my regular bilge vent. Cabin ventilation may be a bit trickier, but worth pursuing with your computer fan idea.

Thanks.

I'm paying a lot more than most of you. I pay $390/month for a 42 x 16 fixed slot, with water cable and wi-fi provided. 50 amp service is metered. Several boat owners in the New Smyrna City Marina are grumbling on the rates, but I've shopped around and can't really do much better unless I'm willing ...
