1970 Trojan 34' Houseboat

Post by Merle » Tue Nov 13, 2018 5:18 pm

Hello!
I am happy that I ve found this Forum! I recently bought an old Trojan houseboat. At some point in its life, it found it's way to Germany.
Since it is in bad condition, I will need to fix a lot of things. I wonder if there is a place/person to get more information about the boat. For example what kind of GFRP was used. I am happy for any information you could give me!

Many greetings from Germany and sorry for my bad english. (=

With best regards
Felix

herzlich willkommen! Bis jemand kommt, um Ihre spezifische Frage zu beantworten, können Sie die "Suche" -Funktion verwenden. Als ich meinen Trojaner zum ersten Mal bekam, las ich (fast) jeden Thread.

Können Sie Bilder von Ihrem Boot posten? Entschuldigung, wenn mein Deutsch nicht auf dem neuesten Stand ist!
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!

P Dogg I always knew you were a man of many talents.

Felix - Best of luck with that houseboat. I saw a Trojan Houseboat in Florida one winter in Florida years ago. It was not in good shape at that time but was pretty cool all the same. Obviously the salt water and sun had been working away at the boat and the owners were not giving it the care it needed.

I've always been fascinated by Trojan's ambitious approach to this mode of boating. They were trying to do the job right but I guess they lost interest somewhere along the line. Probably an executive decision.
