Re: New start!

The height issue was a problem for me and eliminated the CUMMINS, which incidentally was my first choice, as a potential powerplant this left me with the Volvo or the Yanmar The Yanmar was an easy choice 13 years later the only component failure was a starter solenoid, which I switched over to the F...

Re: Trojan International Logos

I don't have them, the vendor created the file.

If we had maybe 10-15 orders and he still has that file we could likely give it a go again.

As I recall, we simply plugged in the "meter" size to suit everyones individual needs

Bob Cushman could provide you with the correct number. WELCOME T...

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

Carver bought the "name" and log and produced a line of high quality "Trojan Express Yachts" in the Carver Pulaski WI factory. These boats have held up well over time and have a good reputation for quality build. The molds from Lancaster were destroyed, and the Carver Trojans share nothing with the ...

Re: 10.8 Trojan Fresh Water Mystery

it appears to me you have a later model non-liner boat and a conventional tank. If you fill up the tank and leave the pump turned off, and it still leaks the leak is either the tank or the hose going to the pump. I once used food coloring to quickly locate my own leak SAFETY NOTE: It is my understan...

Re: 10.8 Trojan Fresh Water Mystery

first thing Fill the tank and turn off the automatic pump see if the tank empties this will determine on which side of the pump the leak will be found We need to determine if you have a built into the hull tank or a conventional tank. If your 10.8 was designed and built with a full liner, then you h...

Re: 89 10 meter bilge pumps

I was not aware of any 10 meter aft cabin models as late as 1989 Perhaps you have a mid-cabin?
