Re: Ladder to fly bridge

Paul, many boats which are inspected by USCG for fishing with passengers (6-Pack, etc) have guidelines on the height requirement of the rails. I am assuming this is why his rails are higher than factory.

Re: New engine

Birdman, not sure who you are addressing that question to but I replaced my engines myself. There were no labor costs other than mine.

Re: Shut off valves

October before last, Bob had a rebuilt set which he sent me and I sent him mine which I removed. Turned out great and now I can get many more years out of them. :wink:

Re: New engine

I got two GM crate small blocks from Michigan Motorz a couple years ago. Fast delivery too. So far, so good.

Re: Water Leaks. Ughhh...

Yup, there is water in the core and when it rains, it leaks from the holes which previous owner drilled for window blind hardware. I'm trying to see if anyone has had luck with finding water intrusion from another source then the obvious places which have been mentioned.

Thanks.

Re: Water Leaks. Ughhh...

Thanks for the reply. NO, my leaks are above the salon windows, port and starboard. Windshield is not leaking and I re-bed my seat bases a few years ago so I don't think it's coming from them. The console maybe...the side cover up on the bridge, possible and I will look into that as well. Thanks, Ja...

Water Leaks. Ughhh...

So after 18 years being under a covered slip, and now moored in an open slip, we've discovered a few water leaks where water is dripping from the bulkhead above side windows in the salon in our 1985 F32. We have small holes where previous owner had window blind hardware attached to it the fiberglass...

Re: Hyd hose

Re: F32 sliding door lock

To remove the door, you remove the Phillip screws along the bottom sill plate that the salon door rests on. (they go in horizontally) Once these screws, (may 5-6 of them) are removed, you tilt the door outwards with the framing from the bottom and remove. Takes less than 5 minutes... If I go down to...

Re: F32 fuel delivery question

With the 4 tank set-up, you always want to shut off the tanks which you are not drawing from. If you are drawing fuel from front tanks for example, say the port and starboard for their respective engines, you'd have the crossover valve closed along with the rear tanks. And vice-verse for when you're...
