Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

I'm glad its helped. Congrats on the purchase. We are going into year three as F-32 owners and can't wait for summer. We added A/C this past year and really were able to enjoy the inside of the boat more. I Also added a 30 gallon black water tank and a new macerator electric toilet. Best thing I did...

1976 F-32 Shaft Strut Bolt Pattern

I'm looking for the bolt pattern of the shaft strut as my boat is 2 hours away in storage now. I didn't like the look of the plywood block when i was down there this summer. I want to make new backer blocks and change them out. Has anyone ever done this? If so how difficult was it to remove the old ...

Chrysler Exhaust Elbows

Looking for a picture of the business end of the Chrysler 318/360 exhaust elbows. I want to take a look at mine when I replace the exhaust hoses. Just need a picture of what they look like on the water outlet side to be sure mine aren't clogged up. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help

Re: Wallpaper F32 1975

That's the same stuff I have in my 1976 Trojan F-32. I have seen pictures of people that have painted the wallpaper and it looks pretty good. I am thinking of doing my head and seeing how it looks. Not sure what paint to use but an enamel would be the best if it doesn't affect the paper.

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Working on the A/C install. I'm happy to say that the 16,000 BTU Webasto Platinum Series unit is cooling the whole boat superbly. I also did some bilge clean up and painting. Aligned the port engine and shaft as it was rubbing the shaft log tube. Cleaned up the wiring in the engine bay and added my ...

Re: Prop strut backing plates

Use white oak and it will last as long as the old white oak your replacing. There is a big diffence between red and ahite oak as far as rot is concerned. White oak is superior to red oak.

Re: Trojan F32 buyers advice

I din't answer any of your questions lol. Parts for the engines are all available her in the USA. And not anymore expensive than other marine engines.

Hi First Class, I have a 1976 Trojan F-32 and I have been a boater for a god part of my life. I'm 55 years old. My boat has the Chrysler 360s in it also. I would not hesitate buying another Trojan.
