Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Finished up a few more items on my F-32. I redid the carpeting and the hatch carpet in the v=berth. Now I can access the bilge without pulling up the whole piece of carpet. I also Installed the new to me mast light. I was able to get the original mast light from a fellow Trojan owner who was install...

Re: fuel tank replacement

Ah I see, I do know that using the gas with ethanol added is a big no no. The ethanol will loosen up the crud and it will eventually plug up the filters. But I have a 1976 F-32 and I just changed my filters that were dated 3/23/16 and they were remarkably clean. I checked the small filter that in my...

Re: fuel tank replacement

Is anything wrong with your tanks? Seems like everyone thinks they have to replace tanks just because they are made of galvanized steel. If they are not leaking and don't show signs of deteriorating inside or outside then why replace them?

Re: F32 Vibration Briefly in Reverse

I'm following this closely. My starboard engine vibrates for a few seconds when I first go into reverse. My theory is that when you first hit reverse you are probably carrying forward momentum and it takes time to stop the boat and reverse direction. This is when the prop shaft is under the highest ...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

A few updates to share. I installed new kitchen and bathroom faucets. The kitchen was a bit of a challenge as I hade to take out the kitchen sink bowl so I could access the plumbing for the faucet. Bathroom was a simple swap. I changed the two water separator filters and the two inline fuel filters....

Re: 1975 F32 Trojan Endless Love <3

Welcome aboard and congrats. I'm almost a year into refitting a 1976 Trojan f-32. Pretty much the same boat you have. I can tell from the water stains in the salon, starboard side that you need to remove the gutter, fix all the cracks behind it. This is the seam from the factory that joins the flybr...

Brought the steps home to redo them so I'll update the galley and V0berth pictures next weekend. I also thru in a picture of the fly brid...
