Re: Farewell To A Beautiful Lady

Supposedly the two happiest days of a " boaters" life is the day we buy'em and the day we sell'em......... unless we love them. Well Big D - I am feeling your pain. I suppose we won't be missing you because you'll still be around, which is great but I'll miss those Big Blue 440's. You have always be...

Re: My First Boat - 1997 Trojan 390 Express - Caught between 2 worlds

Re: What’s your spreed at 32-3400 rpm s and wot? Todd, I hate to admit it but I have no idea. I've only had it wide open once. If running hard I'm still slightly under three thousand rpm. Tell you what, I'll get out within the next week and find out the answers. I'm like the farmer who drives around...

Re: My First Boat - 1997 Trojan 390 Express - Caught between 2 worlds

Very interesting indeed, Todd. The draft on the 370 that Carver built and I now own is a very deep 4' 2", so it's even deeper than the 10.8 was. Nobody in my marina needs as much water as I do. I know you've been around the 370 hull while dry-docked and you probably noticed the downward angle of the...

Re: My First Boat - 1997 Trojan 390 Express - Caught between 2 worlds

Todd, do you think there was any truth to the thought that Carver was facing a royalties issue to Bertram if they utilized the Trojan mould of the 10.8 and as a result, built a new hull which featured enough modification as to avoid legal issues................ or do think that explanation was just ...

Re: My First Boat - 1997 Trojan 390 Express - Caught between 2 worlds

Hi Todd, Todd, I have a question you may be able to help with. I think that Bob wasn't referring to the 10.8 hull as having that coring problem but rather he was talking about the Carver-built "Trojan 370" hull. I was under the impression that the Carver-built 370 hull was totally re-designed and ma...

Trojan 370/390/410 hulls

Hi Everyone, I guess August is ticking away - say it's not so. Hope all is well. Bob, I own a 1994 370. The coring issue your friend is experiencing is rather surprising to me. Before I signed the cheque, I hired two unrelated surveys on the boat which included drilling holes in my hull to check and...

Re: Interesting Trojan Story

"Bow Steer" is something we've probably all experienced to some degree at some point. No fun and point well taken David. Couldn't agree more.

Dog House, this is a sad story. Too bad. Hopefully you'll be back with replacement ride sometime soon.

Re: Storage stands for 370

Hi Donald,

Conrats on your purchase

I'm in Canada and own the same boat. Same year. Great boat. Built by Carver but that's a long story. We consider them to be Trojans.

Personal message me and I will send you photos of my boat in winter storage.

Cheers

Re: 36ft Trogan tricabin new owner

Lee, If you are cruising from Delaware to Myrtle........ that is an extended cruise and I'm going to assume you're going down the ICW beginning at Norfolk. As you're in Delaware, will you be taking the canal across to Northern Chesapeake Bay? Then you will still have the whole of Chesapeake Bay to c...

Re: New start!

PK Great Work! Good for you. Lots of struggles but still persisting. Lucky for us we're not all trying to reply to you in Norwegian. :) Being the victim of a bankrupt restoration company with your boat in the trustee's grasp would probably stop most of us from continuing on. Many of us could relate ...
