Re: 36 Tri-Cabin Window screens

Thanks for the nice compliments, guys. Much appreciated. But as usual, every time I volunteer to help, it appears that I chase the other guy away :) Right, Prowler?? But you are all totally correct about this Forum. Maybe it's partly because the Beacon Guys were actually involved with these boats an...

Re: 36 Tri-Cabin Window screens

Moondance, My former '74 tri-cabin has been written off by the insurance company due to fibreglass damage due to a nearby boat burning up. I have seen a photo of this boat (breaks my heart because I spoiled her for sixteen years. I believe the window screens should be fine. Do you want me to check? ...

Re: Houseboat steering wandering

Clem, Those houseboats were cool machines. As I mentioned recently, I saw one once while I was vacationing in Florida (Stuart). I think Trojan was only in the houseboat business for a short time. Post a photo for us if it's convenient for you to do so. One added comment I might have, refers to the "...

Re: Vacu-flush system replacement??

So Fighter, What Vacuflush model is that in the photo anyway??? I don't recognize it. It does indeed remind me of what we always called the "Air Canada Heads" that I had when I first bought my former 36 foot TriCabin. Maybe P Dogg had one as well.

Re: Answering a question about a Carver 370/390

Hey Guys,

Ever notice how when I say something like, "I own one of these boats and will try my best to answer your questions."............. the guy never returns? I must scare the heck out of them

Re: 1970 Trojan 34' Houseboat

P Dogg I always knew you were a man of many talents. Felix - Best of luck with that houseboat. I saw a Trojan Houseboat in Florida one winter in Florida years ago. It was not in good shape at that time but was pretty cool all the same. Obviously the salt water and sun had been working away at the bo...

Re: 1992-1999 Trojan Express 37-40

Thank you for the feedback Prowlerfish and P Dogg. Prowler said: I would move as many house loads as you can to your House Battery bank . The frig is a must. Rick said: I agree totally. My marina is balking at the wiring challenge of these changes. I have not been able to entice a knowledgeable tech...

Re: 1992-1999 Trojan Express 37-40

Okay. Thanks guys. This is an area that's difficult to understand for most boaters. The guys at my marina all have different versions of this technology and are generally convinced they know what they're talking about. The versions are all different and the conversations can become heated and end up...

Starboard engine battery is position 1 on the switch Port engine battery is position 2 on the switch A 3rd battery - a deep cell...

Re: 1992-1999 Trojan Express 37-40

By the way, I have indeed raised this subject before and Big D did give us a very good response, but it appears to be a tough thing to get the marina or a contractor to actually convert my boat's charging system to a straightforward and improved battery configuration.

Re: 1992-1999 Trojan Express 37-40

Hi Prowler, I have a feeling that Guessed87 moved on from the high moisture content boat he initially acquired about. I do have a question for you that we can start a new link for. Going out on a limb, how would you design the battery arrangement in my own 370? I'm running a pair of 502's with an 8....

Re: 1992-1999 Trojan Express 37-40

Hi Guessed87,

Four years ago, I bought a 1994 370 after I sold the 1974 Tricabin I'd had for 16 years.

They are truly a fantastic boat. Ask me anything you'd like to know.

Cheers

Re: New to the Trojan family

Captrichc - Welcome to the Forum and welcome to that 32 Sport. Great photos. You are really going to enjoy it. I can confirm that the Westerbeke generator Ron has mentioned is indeed a low decibel number. I was sitting in his salon two weeks ago in Smiths Falls during Ron's cruise from Toronto to Ot...
