Velvet Drive "5000 Series" 20-01-001

Lost my stbd transmission. Burned up - Gears and all (they say).

What do you think a rebuilt velvet drive "5000 Series" 20-01-001 (1:1, 8deg down angle) should cost?

Re: Borg Warner, Velvet Drive ( How to check oil level)

Good evening everyone! Haven't been on the Trojan forum for a while. Hope everyone is doing well! My wife has been battling cancer for 4.5 years, but is doing well on two trial drugs (13th rounds of chemo), and we're back in action! We fly to MD Anderson in Houston, Texas every 4 weeks now for 2 yea...

Hello from Charleston, Window Tint

Hello, How is everyone? I haven't been on this board (or on the Trojan) for months now... After 3-1/2 years of treatment, including 3 surgeries and 15 rounds of different chemotherapy, my wife's cancer (in stage 4) is finally getting a better. We've re-assessed our life (spend a lot of it in Houston...

We haven't been on an overnight cruise in 3 years - but looking much prettier at the dock ;)

Re: F32/F36 Upper Station Console

Has anyone replaced the floor on their F32 or F36 bridge?

Mine is spongy, so I'm planning to ear it all off and start over. Would love any tips... :?:

If I bought another bat (5 now), it would be instant divorce :cry: :wink: but thanks for the tip!

Just need an 80s helm (and time to work on it) ... will call the 2 numbers that I have been sent, just been busy ...

Sorry to see all the northern boats getting hauled. :oops:

Re: F32/F36 Upper Station Console

The one Prowlerfish posted appears exactly the same as the one on my junk 77 F28 that is almost stripped clean. The seat is in the front. Come get it you can have it. Larry, I REALLY appreciate the offer, but its not much different from what I have now, other than not have the aft facing seat on th...

Re: F32/F36 Upper Station Console

Yes, that 78 is my helm with the built-in aft facing seat removed.

I really want something where I can mount electronics, etc. like the 80's upper helm consoles.

I'll have to add a U-Joint to the steering shaft...
