Re: Photobucket revoked third party hosting (photo linking)

I got the same notice, and will be moving my photos to keep my threads alive.

It's a bit of a surprise, they must be wanting to get out of the business...cause nobody going to pay that price to host a few photos.

My son is a geek, I'll find out what the alternatives are and report back.

Re: List of questions on new (for me) F36 1976 on first weekend out

My Trojan is the Tri Fly, with the engines aft under the bunks. Being all the way back there they were super easy to remove and install...lol. Only after removing the whole cockpit. One of the engines I did drop in a rebuilt short block and then complete the engine in place. Putting on the oil picku...

Re: stuck in the boathouse

The couple marinas in Port Stanley are just finishing the slips. The water is up about 15-20" from last fall. Last week while visiting my future slip, which is in a river dumping into Lake Erie (all the marinas are on this river) the water dropped 7" in 30 minutes. The water was just at the top of t...

Re: Project "Tri Fly"

I installed the cockpit floor, I’m pretty happy with the result. I’m not going to say right now what it’s made of, but it’s less than $100 Not often that you get something that big done for just one boat dollar. Keep at it! I laughed my head off! 1 boat dollar? I'm obviously out of my league Thanks...

Re: Project "Tri Fly"

I’ve been slaving away on the project all winter but seems there’s very little progress  I’ve done some more work in the galley. Installed fixtures and some stain and clear coat. http://i1362.photobucket.com/albums/r696/barrieh/20170206_214554_zpsx9iyzszl.jpg http://i1362.photobucket.com/albums/r69...

Re: 1972 F-36 Window Frame Rust Removal of Replacement

I've had my frames out, sand blasted, painted (acrylic enamel) and reinstalled them.
No small job
