Re: stansion repair

Go see your shrinkwrap guy....My best guess here,that is what pulled the posts in, there should have been a 2x4 spreader across the front deck between the railings to keep them from moving.

Is there any further damage past just loose.

Re: Cutting Taff rail

Any nice hand saw will work fine, if you are concerned about chipping just tape the cut and score with a knife first, but I think you will be just fine.

The fittings I got took quite some modifying to the wood to fit as wood end profile and the hinges did not match, was doable though.

Re: F32 V-berth door removal

+1 on the frearson.You can modify a Philips driver , but it is better to have the real deal.

The stain used by Trojan at the factory for our 78 was min wax red oak, I think the number was 215, yours looks like it might be the same. Looks good.

Re: 12 meter mystery tank

But it appears this is UNUSED on the 12 meter motor yacht, as we have an aluminum cylindrical tank (right beside the water heater and under the dinette set) that I have verified is the one we are filling when we fill the water inlet. This seems like aftermarket to me. You picture looks exactly like...

Re: Updating Electrical System on 1976 F32

Cool, watch the fuses as some cannot be used in a gasoline engine compartment, tough to comply with, I believe blue seas may have something for that now.

Re: Moving the engine seacocks

I totally agree with the guys, there is a reason those are located where they are. If you change that there could be consequences like aerating props etc, who knows. Maybe just reconfigure the strainer location to give you some better access while in a hurry if that is possible. Any underwater fitti...

Re: Updating Electrical System on 1976 F32

Nice drawing, heh If you are going with all new cable/wiring here there are two things that come to mind, don't combine grounds, like from your inverter and house bank to the bus. The other is why did you pick the 40 amp charger, this is one place where bigger is much better when considering recharg...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

Just a thought, while you guys have it open have you considered replacing the exhaust hose, it looks pretty old.

Re: 1976 F-32 Sedan - Exhaust Pipe Routing

That is definitely wrong. Both sides from the risers go together and then down all the way to the transom. Probably fell down like you said.

Re: F32 V-berth door removal

On our 78, the door was hinged on the port side and opened out with clasp on the head wall. Now the other side had an enclosed cabinet. So the point of this is the door frame, when they replaced the stringers, they missed the height of the door frame, as it was altered a bit too short, maybe 1/4 " a...
