Re: F32 Vibration Briefly in Reverse

Bathroom was a simple swap. I changed the two water separator filters and the two inline fuel filters....

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

The pictures are of the four salon hatch covers. I use 43 ounce carpet and wrapped all four edges of the hatches and will also wrap the hatc...

1976 F-32 Fuel Line Size

I'm not close to my boat right now. But was wondering who knows for sure what size copper line was used for the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carb?
