Re: One Less Trojan

Sorry to hear... It's always sad to have something of such sentimental value disappear, especially when it's unforeseen. Good Luck with insurance and a newer boat!

Re: need help - a/c in 12 meter aft cabin

I'd see if your marina office has a vendor list for Air Conditioner guys and contact one of them. They might/should know where to look for the compressor if no else chimes in. When you do find it take a picture of the spec plate (has the type of refrigerant and the amount in addition to some other s...

Re: trim tab question

Make sure your Trim Tab circuit breaker is on and look at the volt gauges(s) when you move the Tab button - you should see some voltage drop. I seldom use mine and half the time forget the breaker is off!

Re: '89' trojan 12 meter express international questions

tcollins2 has the right idea for the Subzero. Had the compressor in mine rebuilt and it was around $800. So... if the freezer side of yours gets below 20-ish and the refrigerator side keeps things cold then I'd sink money into other things. My 1990 12M has a replacement main cabin AC unit (Taylor Ma...

Re: 14 Meter Trojan

Mrphilinma, Make sure you have a good survey. 14M's are built solid and Trojan did a wonderful job glassing the balsa-core. But... look for any owner-drilled holes, make sure the A/C units work and the Sub-Zero's do their thing, put a full load on the generator, take it out for cruise and make sure ...

Re: May 2017 Upper Bay Rendezvuex

Thanks prowlersfish! John said that the Trojan design team took great pride in making sure engine swaps could be accommodated without cutting fiberglass. 671 Eng Removal (2)-1.jpg I jokingly asked him if that meant sometimes lifting the engine vertically... A serious "Yes" was the reply. 6-71 Remova...

Re: 2016 Cheasapeke bay rendevouis Poll

Hi Everyone! I just purchased a 1990 12M Express on the upper Chesapeake. I had John Leed help me out and he promised he'd go to a Rendezvous. Any word if/when/where one will be held? I'd be happy to help set one up. Labor Day weekend works best for me. Thanks!!
