Re: Battery configuration

As a boater, if they don’t get you excited, you need to sell the vessel you own and buy a book.

Beautiful work.

Re: Looking to buy a 1988 8.6 meter

Best advise we can give, don’t own a Trojan without actively participating on this board. It is worth its weight in gold.

Congrats on the purchase!

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Pretty certain your rear deck had been replaced before. The white oak was the Trojan standard. With the 2x6 bracing, your rear deck should be super strong.

Re: Battery configuration

Just a FYI, a few years ago on my 24’ Express Cruiser, I ran a portable generator when weekending. To make sure I was as safe as possible, I installed a Xantrex/Kiddie Marine CO Detector onboard. They work differently than a household model, utilizing a modified sensing curve before alarming. Oddly ...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Looking good! I started a F36 last year and lost interest after my wife’s medical issues took a temporary turn for the worse. Hopefully you make it farther than I did!

Re: New F32 owner

Congrats! I’ve been getting used to our 1980 F32. She is definitely a fun little project. I use the word little with great sarcasm.

A Sherwood Water Pump “PSA”

A PSA for the group. Over the last month, I have run across a similar problem on two different boats. The Sherwood raw water pumps on our vessels are known for bearing wear issues. When they wear, the impeller blades become warped while spinning and the brass diverters inside cut the vanes up. The f...

Prowlersfish a time traveler? Perhaps! Every time I’m around him, I hear Dreamweaver playing in the background.

Re: Not able to reach top end on F32

Well I didn’t get a chance to check compression this weekend. Too many other projects, like pulling a stern tank that had a broken weld. That one wasn’t in the works for sure!

I was able to get up to 3280 on port and 3375 on starboard. Going to keep working with her to see where I get.
