Re: Drive advice needed - Starboard Velvet Drive failed

I pulled one in my F32 in about an hour, cost $1,000 for a rebuild easy enough to put back in, myself and a friend lifted it with a rope around one end, just lugged it around and threw in the pickup truck

Re: ? Raw Water Cooling in the Salt ?

I have raw water cooled 318's in my F32 and run in salt, I don't flush them, just tie the boat off when im done and leave. Ive heard bad things converting a salt/raw cooled motor to fresh water cooled, building loosening up and clogging the system and so on, Im not about to reengineer the wheel.

Re: F32 cutless bearings

I just did one on a 30 ft Penn Yan, looks the same just a little smaller, even though the Penn Yan has more HP, a little thought, couple sockets, hammers and screw drivers and its wasnt that bad to change with the strut and shaft in place, did my old Silverton too, strut in place but pulled the shaf...

Re: Shift Cables

i replaced the cable, thats about all there is to it, local marina measured the cable and ordered from Kellog Marine, West marine can do the same,if memory recalls $55 but could have been a little bit more

Re: Shift Cables

cheap and easy to replace, the one I did last year was the upper cable that feed the lower helm which in turn fed the transmission. Done in under a hour.

Parts F32

Where are the parts boats in New England? Myself and 3 other F32 owners are looking for a variety of parts. I located one the seller doesn't seem to want to agree on a price with me, I dont want the whole thing but was willing to pay for disposal of the hull but she isn't responding now.
