Bimini Top

So I have an old Bimini top with frame off of my 1976 F-32. The frame had some kind of coating over the tubing that is falling of and just gone in some places, leaving a rusty tube showing. The frame is plenty strong but I want to make it look new again. The coating that is falling off seems to be a...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

We have hot water!!! After some blood and sweat I was finally able to loosen the hot water heating element. When I pulled it out you could see visible cracks in the element. Wish I would have taken a picture but it was pretty obvious that it was part of my AC leak. Also checked the ground wires from...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Ok been busy with a bunch of little projects and also enjoying being on the boat in the water. I changed all the light fixtures to LED lights, WOW what a big improvement. Doesn't feel so gloomy at night... Pulled up the galley floor for a quick look and all is good under there, then screwed the pane...

Re: Sherwood GB-7 Raw Water Pump

Sorry guys I guess I assumed everyone knew what a Sherwood GB-7 pump was. Its the pump on the side of the engine. It was dripping every few seconds while the engine was running. And it was coming from the holes on the pump casing. Basically dripping where it should if the seal is bad. Hope that help...

Sherwood GB-7 Raw Water Pump

One of my raw water pump was dripping at the end of last season and now it after an hour of operating the engine it is not dripping a drop? Has anyone had this happen before? Engine temps are normal and the same on both engines. There is even water flow from both exhausts?

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Had a productive weekend. Finished the non skid on the cockpit deck and installed the recovered combing panels around the cockpit. Also checked out the trim tab pump and topped off the fluid and low and behold the lower helm switches are reversed. Is there an easy fix? Swap wires at the switches or ...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

LOL, I like the idea P-Dogg. But my to do list is still at 42 items, really it is. But I'm making this a higher priority. Thanks, again you made me think about cruising around and not being able to see the bilge easily to know if there is a problem. This I'm sure gives one the piece of mind knowing ...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Good point P-Dogg very good point. Well hopefully it will hold for another few days. I'm getting her put in the water on Monday. To start the first season as a Trojan owner. So excited to get her floating again. I do need to run a hot wire to the forward bilge pump so I can have it operating on the ...

Re: F32 Interior Wood Work

Interesting guys. But I swear my 1976 manual say Watco Teak Oil. Now you got me wondering. I'm going to look tonight.. lol And I do have a can of Minwax paste wax I'm going to take up to the boat for sure... And it does say the finish has been improved so maybe they switched It in the 80s
