Re: Debris in fuel tank

If your fuel filters are working, you should not be getting debris in your carbs. The debris would be in the filters and they would get clogged, causing fuel starvation. Replacing them would give you relief for a while, but eventually, the debris in your tanks would cause them to clog again. Have yo...

Re: Instructions on how to rebuild a Hynautic K-19 steering cyl

Thanks for resurrecting this thread! I have a K-51 cylinder which Teleflex no longer makes a rebuild kit for. When I talked to their support, there were a couple of parts that are no longer available, so I cannot even source the individual parts. If mine leaks, I will have to try to rebuild it the b...

Re: Greetings from a former F32 owner

Congrats on your new boat -- she looks very nice!

I hope you stop in from time to time. I really enjoyed reading about your F-32 projects when we were trying to decide if a F-36 was the right boat for us.

Now you have to update your signature and avatar... :)

Re: Trojan vs Trojan

One of the things that attracted me to the F-36 was the classic lines. After owning ours for a few years, I like them even more. Every time we go to at marina and take a transient slip, I think we have the prettiest boat on the dock! While I like the Internationals, I don't think I would feel the sa...

Re: leak

If you are inspecting your rub rail, it might be worth it to remove a section to see how the wood is holding up. On our 1975 F-36, the teak looked fine from the outside, but the inside was rotten away. As a quick fix, I replaced a small section near the sling points to protect the hull. At the next ...

Re: What’s wrong with this picture?

Its all regular stainless tubing. I suspect it did not come from the factory, but not sure.

Re: What’s wrong with this picture?

Here are photos of our trim tabs on a '75 F-36. As I recall, our boat is about the same year as Oil and Water's was. And if you zoom in, you will be able to see that the prop nuts are backwards. That is the way we got the boat and I have not had a reason to take them off, but when I do, they will be...

Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

Looking over this thread, I realized that I never described how I connected the RS11 to the physical gauges. The RS11 is mounted behind the lower helm and the connections are all made to the terminal strips installed by Trojan. The photo is rotated 90° and I will fix later when I have access to a co...

Re: Bow Pulpit

Welcome aboard!

Great idea upgrading your anchor wench to a winch. Sorry, I just couldn't help myself...
