Re: 1977 Trojan 318 engine performance

While that is factory size most will do better with a little less pitch . Our boats start getting a little fatter from day one. 100% Correct... As mine 'fattened up' over my first ten years of ownership, which gradually dropped my performance to 2800 rpm (3000 on a good day)...I went with this sugg...

Re: Trailers for Large Boats

Does anyone on the forum trailer their boat, either in the marina yard or on the open road? What are you trailering and what trailers are you using? Is anyone using a "yard" trailer that isn't street legal to move their boat around the marina yard? Any recommendations for or against specific traile...

Re: 1971 F26 Front Window

Then after the new glass install, have one of these made and never replace the windows again.

The material that I used is from "QL Marine Accessories" which is a division of Volvo Penta. These sound absorbent panels are available in several different thicknesses.

Hope this helps

Re: Engine sound deadening....

I used Dynamat under the cockpit floor and it lowered the sound levels considerably. Before the Dynamat installation I could not hear my exhaust, only the engine noise coming through the cockpit floor. After installing the Dynamat about 80% of the sound I hear is from the engine exhaust and 20% of ...

Re: Engine sound deadening....

Hey Paul, thanks for the pics and info...

Does that product in the pic have any kind of integrated sound deadening rubber/ poly type layer?

Been reading a lot about the principles of sound proofing. Apparently the combination of foam and rubber layers are the key.

Engine sound deadening....

The market's best is believed to be Dynamat, but wow, is it pricey... Has anyone found a cheaper alternative with a noticeable difference in engine noise through the cockpit sole? My Trojan has the factory teak sole, and I would like to adhere to both the engine cover, and the port and starboard hel...

Re: Here we go...Design/ Build Arch

The plan is 0.125 ga. sheets with the only seam being in the centre of the arch both top & bottom. Yes...it will be powder coated white for the finish. Seen a lot of stuff over the past 10 or so years that has been powdered coated, yielding excellent results. Designed & built this folding companionw...

Re: Here we go...Design/ Build Arch

Should be an interesting build, be sure to keep us posted on the progress. Frame and sheet? Welded? All welded, 2 main hoops & 2 supports per side with 7/8" O.D....welded to 2 slightly curved base plates. Should give it sufficient lateral stability up to the bends. Concerted efforts to keep it stro...

Re: Here we go...Design/ Build Arch

After many hours of deliberation, the decision to go the fiberglass route is out the window. Never been one much for conformity...so I've completed the designs for an all aluminum arch. Fully skinned without the exposed tubular look seen so much these days. The arch will be finished in white. Below ...

Re: Here we go...Design/ Build Arch

Hi Paul, is that a photo shopped picture of your idea, or another boat, either way that is super cool and a modern/functional way to hang canvas. I wonder if that would work on a Tri Fly????? :lol: Hi Barrie, yes I photo shopped the arch onto a photo of my boat. Have been playing with the concept f...

Re: Here we go...Design/ Build Arch

Lol... yes, part of the plan is to have the All Round white light up there. The others are a strong enough build to have Stainless Grab handles on the aft edges and, overhead LED Cockpit lighting on the underside. Radar serves no purpose for our boating style in the area we travel. I'm designing a f...
