Re: Trojan Jones Act Restrictions

No, but of course I would get that if I went through with this, at least the six pack. I'm not really considering it but was told if I did I can't with a Canadian made vessel.

Re: Trojan Jones Act Restrictions

Well, I know they register USCG Taiwanese trawlers here. They don't like screen that I believe. But the act strictly states foreign built vessels carrying passengers or engaging for profit is a crime. There is a local maritime lawyer trying to convince the world that this is a big deal :roll: No Can...

Re: Considering Another with Detroit Diesels

Considering Another with Detroit Diesels

My trifly continues to thrill, but an opportunity has come along to purchase with Detroit Diesels (671s I believe 315 hp turbo) that have over 2000hr but have been sitting for a couple years? Run? Hide? What are some considerations on start up and eval? ...
