Re: Windows F32 Clean View

So how are you 'locking' them closed now? Are you using the old slide clip but just glass on glass - and doesn't that mess with your weatherstripping?

Re: 1975 F32 Trojan Endless Love <3

Re: water tank

I'm in similar 'boat' (pun intended!). Have always winter stored indoors, but 2-3 years in a heated storage facility and the plywood tank top has contracted enough to break the seal with the lower tank. Tried using an epoxy to seal all leaks a year ago, but this spring its leaking again... Can try t...

Re: Bottom Paint

Can't comment on the epoxy barrier, but I can do my F32 with less than a gallon of CSC per coat. Haven't done a full coat for years - think only once since I switched to CSC 10-15 years ago (and more out of vanity than anything else - wanted the bottom to look a more consistent colour -- not that th...

Re: Hydraulic Rudder Control or lack there of

I'm a little confused... hydraulic steering is hydraulic... not pneumatic... If you are talking about issues with some separate auto pilot system then so be it, but if you are trying to fix a hydraulic steering system, why are you pumping air into it? Maybe I missed some key point in a post. As othe...

Re: Side Window Slider removal

Welcome to the world of boats. You may well have to remove the window to remove the chrome strip from it. Having said that, you haven't said why you want to remove it? Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, there may be another way to approach the problem.

Re: Rear windows on my 75 F32 sedan

For the life of me I can't figure out what h-channel you guys are talking about? Its basically the edging for the sliding window panels that holds the glass on one side, and slides along the guides in the window frames on the other. Here is a picture of it https://www.trojanboats.net/zencart/index....

Re: Rear windows on my 75 F32 sedan

Are you talking about the 2 aft 'sliders' on the sides, or the big panes on either side of the sliding door? If the first one, glass can be cut by someone local if you can take them what you have to be used as a template, and Beacon can walk you through how to get the existing ones out and new ones ...

Re: New to the Trojan World

It's possible your impellers just got to 'that age'. There are a bunch of basic 'how to' videos out there for how to do the swap, such as this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOacHnmlH_I. It's a little more of a challenge with how our engines are set up as you are either laying or squatting over...

Re: Which Trojan model is this?

I'm wondering if it might be a prototype for a model they decided not to go with, because the window frames / windows and navigation light appear to be Trojan OEM. If it was a custom build / rebuild, it would surprise me if they could build it for original Trojan window frame to fit so well.

Re: OE Autopilot
