Newbie saying hello

Post by TBH1976F32 »

Hey all,
I just bought a 1976 F32 with 351's and was poking around online when I found this board. I'm looking forward to picking the minds of the veterans here for any tips or advice they may. Any diagrams relating that boat year (or vintage)/model would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome home. I think you're going to like it here! Ask away, we're all willing to help. Beacon Marine who makes all this possible is a great source of diagrams, literature, etc.
She was a 1969 36 ft wooden beauty with big blue 440s that we'll miss forever.

Thanks everyone. We bought the boat here in Erie. It's on the cradle on at PI Marina now. Hopefully we will put in Sunday and keep it at Perry's Landing.

I was just wondering as a friend of mine sold his F32 just before he passed away a few years ago and I was told it was up for sale again.
Does your boat happen to have any red striping?
Perry's is a nice place. You will enjoy it there.

This boat has all black stripping. I was told it it came to Erie within the past two years from the Conneaut Ohio area. Once we get it in the water I'll get some pics posted.
