Re: Lifespan

Loved your post 10 Meterman. I suppose this thread is turning into a healthy love-in where we all brag about our Trojans. But, it's probably good for all of us every once in a while. I for one would have really loved a brand new imaginary tricabin with all the upgrades I added, built right in at tim...

Re: Lifespan

RWS - Great list of upgrades. Not thoroughly understanding exactly how the hull liner worked, what were the ramifications if any caused by you cutting through it? I realize that your boat isn't a cored hull, but when you get time maybe explain how the process worked (hull liner) and then how you cut...

Re: Lifespan

Sorry All, I meant to say in my above post - " preceding comments" i.e. referring to the opening comments introduced by RWS and the comments that immediately followed from Prowler, Dog House and P-Dogg. But I mistakenly wrote " proceeding " instead. Sorry. There's a big difference. You'd think i'd b...

Re: Lifespan

It's going to be pretty difficult to find a single Trojan owner who will disagree with any of the proceeding comments. So naturally I will try :) Lets face it, Trojan simply screwed up or maybe they took the easy way out when they designed the rain water drainage from Tricabin rear decks. I fixed mi...

Re: 1987 13 Meter Express Hardtop - Newly Acquired

Reel Wild Surprised no one has responded to your question to this point. Others will no doubt know more about this than I do, but I will give you my thoughts. I have never had boat that utilized a 50 A connector but have to assume the pigtailed style of your two 30A connectors (even if they aren't a...

Re: F32 Interior Wood Work

Hi FB, This is probably old news to you because you've been around this Forum for a long time. If it's teak or mahogany and the wood finish is still smooth but only faded a bit, I would use one coat of Satin finish Marine Cetol. That's just my opinion though. Not everyone likes this product. I find ...

Re: 83 36 foot tri cabin questions.

You said: They seem solid but look like they are heavy in glass as well . My thought is , this does not look like a model that would be prone to stringer rot unless there was a major buildup of water in the hold I agree. Trojan probably laid down more fiberglass "roving" around stringers and corner ...

Swampman's Questions

Taking a poll on this thread by swampman Lock it ? Delete it ? leave it be ? Is he a troll ? Swampman's position is unique from the perspective of his extremely low purchase price. When he takes his purchase price into consideration he has very little to lose except the time and effort he decides to...

Re: 1987 13 Meter Express Hardtop - Newly Acquired

Reel Wild - How did she run on your trip down the Toronto shoreline to her new berth? Diesels perform as expected? Hull ride well. You're a brave man, getting out on the water early spring in the cool weather. What were your take-aways about the boat?

Re: 83 36 foot tri cabin questions.

This topic probably needs it's own chain because we are only going to succeed in driving Swampman nuts with all our brave talk about how much money we spent in any particular month................. errrrrrrr but that being said - we can't help it right? So Swampman, don't read on any further My wors...
