Re: Swim Deck Project

Thanks Oil&Water I think it turned out good. I'm working on the wood transom ladder and will add it this weekend. Then I'll start the back wall of the cabin, door, window trim and other wood items.

Re: molded hose source for chrysler 360

Any pics available yet? It sounds like you may have a freshwater cooling system, if so it may be aftermarket and you may be able to find a make and model number somewhere on it.

Re: Wet Sanding, Compounding, Sore Arms and a Custom Catamaran

Nice Job! I've had those wet sanding sore arms before. Very satisfying when you get finished though.

Re: Swim Deck Project

Thanks Jimmy, I hope it last too. I have a covered slip so it will not be exposed to the sun except when we are out using the boat and I plan to watch it pretty close and re-apply at least once a year.

Swim Deck Project

I recently completed my swim deck project and wanted to share a few pics. I made a jig from 3/4" plywood to shape the deck to the curve of my transom. Then I clamped the 3/4"x2" red oak strips in place dry to number and mark the center line and cut outs. Then I took it apart and made the cuts for th...

Re: Zinc Anodes

comodave, thanks for your reply. I need to dig a little deeper and learn more about the bonding system, if any on my boat. Running the wire from bolt to bolt on the inside sounds like a great idea.

Zinc Anodes

I am replacing my old swim deck brackets with stainless steel brackets. I wonder if I should add anodes to these, or if they do not need it because they are stainless steel.

Re: 360 does not run at idle

It sounds like an old fuel issue. Assuming it's carbureted it may be a gummed up idle jet, a good dose of seafoam will probably clean it out.

Re: 1977 F30 318 cuts off under load

Check your fuel filter. You may have enough flow to idle, or run at low RPMs but it may be starving for fuel under power. When I first purchased my 79 F28 with twin 318's my port side motor picked up some trash from the tank and it would barely run 2500-3000 RPM. I replaced the fuel filter and insta...

Re: 1979 F28 Wood Interior

Big D, I suspected a lot of this was mahogany by the grain, it's pretty coarse. I'll find an area out of sight and try a spot with Murphy's and another with Cetol and compare the results. Thanks for your input.

Re: 1979 F28 Wood Interior

Thanks guys for the replies. I do believe the floor was done by a previous owner. It looks like oak wood flooring from the grain, and is in pretty good shape. I think most of the paneling is a veneer but I am not familiar enough with teak to make that assumption. From ya'lls replies it sounds like t...

1979 F28 Wood Interior

Can someone tell me what type of wood was used in the interior? Also, what refinishing products do you recommend? MIne is in decent condition but very coarse and dull. Attached are some pictures for reference. Thanks in advance for any comments. 20180415_165046.jpg 20180415_165058.jpg 20180415_16501...

Can't Find Neutral

I have a Paragon transmission. The other day I was adjusting a leaky prop shaft stuffing box and had my son put the transmission in forward to check the drip rate and then reverse. While slowly shifting from forward to reverse, he paused in the neutral position and the shaft slowed but did not fully...

Re: Interesting Trojan Story

My question is has anyone reversed the scoops so that the leading scoop is facing forward allowing air to enter and turned the scoop at the stern rearward so that it would allow air to escape but minimize the chance of water being scooped in? That is the way the vents are on my '79 F32. Forward ven...
