F32 Forward Hatch Latches

Good morning. Does anyone know where to find the original forward hatch latches used on the F32 (1974 model in my case). :?: I have 2 that need replacing, but will replace all of them (6 total) when I find them. The latches each mount to the Acrylic with 2 screws and hang down and snap into latches ...

Re: New Canvas

Have your Bimini made in Seamark, which is simply vinyl-lined, waterproof Sunbrella. We use it on all Sea Rays, larger Chaparrals and some Rinkers and Regals. Gore Tenara thread will last as long as the Sunbrella, but it is much more expensive. I'm not a big Strataglass fan, as it requires more care...

Re: DIESEL OPTIONS FOR F32?

Sorry, I thought your got the 315s ... Twin 6BY3-260s will work great ! The 260HP on this 183cid(2.9L) engine is at 4,000RPM ... seems high for a diesel, but they've got to get power somehow. The "continuous duty" rating of 198hp @ 3,600RPM will work fine ... Peak Torque looks like about 490ft.lbs @...

Re: DIESEL OPTIONS FOR F32?

900lb Yanmar 315s should be nice (must have a great intercooler and the boost cranked up) ... not sure you need 630HP in an F32, but it should run 33-36 knots I would guess ... get out the ski ropes!

Look forward to pics and details!

Re: Very nice scale models of your boat

I hear you ... and $129/foot is a bit expensive for my tastes, but they are very pretty.

Re: Max Weight / Body Count on an F32

Seriously, I have had 12 on my F32 in perfectly flat seas for a birthday cruise, and that was more than enough. There really isn't room to stand beyond that. In my opinion: 8-10 max, including max of 5 or 6 on the bridge (3 or 4 is best up top, as you get top heavy and limit visibility) . As the Sil...

Re: Look what I found!

BJ, What year is your F32? congrats on the find, My new to me tri cabin also had the manual, one had a cover like yours and the other was plain. Both were essentially the same. The instructions within covered f32, f36 sedan and tri cabin, making pdf's of them for anyone that would want them. Wonder ...

Raw water pump$ 600-800 heat exchanger $1000 manifold $900 riser/mixer $800?? then mounts and brackets trans adaptors I could go one and on , find a good used ma...

Re: DIESEL OPTIONS FOR F32?

The 6BTAs in my F32 will run 27knots (31mph), and the fuel economy at idle speed is unreal (1:1 Velvet Drives with 17x20 props) at 8knots idling.

Great setup and the Inline-6 config is easy to work on, but barely clears floor. Paul's is probably about the same clearance.
