Re: F32 V-berth door removal

Hi, this was one of the first things that I did when I purchased my 1988 F32 in 2015. It really opened up the bow layout on this boat. I was originally going to fill the opening of the V and create a larger bed but after numerous overnights we left the original dual berth layout as it is much easier...

Re: Happy New Year

I just finished a full charge on my 3 batteries last week to be sure that they are ready for the cold. We are expecting some intense weather here on Long Island NY this week to be followed up by single digit temps Friday & Saturday. Think spring, the NY boat show runs from 1/24/18 to 1/28/18.

What I did with my boqt this weekend.

This summer was the first season for me with a new to me 1988 Trojan F32. The twin 350 Crusaders, generator and fresh water system have been winterized. I spray oiled the engines, generator, rudders & running gear. The shrink wrap is finished and I put an access door this Saturday. Winter projects--...

Re: looking for a radar arch for f36

I have a 1988 F32 with a radar arch that I am selling. I do not know if it will work for your F36? If you would like a picture you can text or call 516-901-0800 and I will send pictures.

Re: 1976 F28 Blowers location on boat

Blowers should be connected at a cutout on the side of the boat. They always draw air out of the bilge and exhaust out the side openings. I have two blowers on my F32, one on each side blowing out. Be sure that the hoses that connect to the blower are good and are drawing air from the lowest point i...

Re: Finally got to use my f 32

I purchased my 1988 F32 November 2015. It was in good condition but like any older boat if you want the systems to all work you have to make a big push in the beginning to update and fix things. We launched May 10th and I have been out about a dozen times. No long trips yet just local, 1 hour each w...

Re: 1988 Trojan F32

Working hard to clean the bilge in this F32. I have soaped, scrubbed, hot watered, vacuumed, all to bring this bilge back in this F32. The boat is still on the hard and blocked up very level so bilge water does move. Cleaning in the engine room is a challenge when a previous owner puts in an oil soa...

1988 Trojan F32

I purchased my 1988 F32 in November 2015. It is on the hard and I have been working on it steadily as the weather here on Long Island has been very mild. I had new carpeting installed back in December and it came out great. I have installed a new Raritan Marine Elegance electric toilet and a 25 gall...

Re: Soft Deck (small area) Repair

Hi, I just worked with the West Systems Six-10 product. The 6' mixing tip works well and allows you to get product about 7 to 8" into a small opening. The product is thick enough when it is dispensed that it stays where you put it and does not run at all. The tube that it comes in is a little deceiv...
