Will check my anchor locker. Thanks. I am new to Trojans so any suggestions are helpful. Fighting with engine and ac blocked seacocks rihhnow too... But I am too stupid to give up easy...
If you look at the 1st few pages of this thread you will see all of my seacocks Where completely locked up. I had them rebuilt by Bob from Beacon marine. They did an amazing job. I would definitely reach out to him 1st before you completely drive yourself crazy

Actually I suspect my soft deck is more a result of a previous owner removing the bulkhead/door frame that separates the v berth. Removing the frame and starboard side of the bulkhead let the starboard hatch drop down about an inch. This created a dip that no doubt held rainwater against the hatch and a lifeboat which is bolted between hatches. My pln is to jack the deck back up until both hatches are even before attacking with the structural foam.I will also leave a permanent post on the inside to better support the deck.

+100....Totally agree, had the same issue when they replaced stringers and got the door frame support at the wrong height, strongly suggest anyone should consider this result.

Sorry for the misdirect , I believe this to be very important for these models.

Agreed that wall gives structural support to the above deck.

The Express model didn't have a complete wall. It's on the port side only

Ok been a while since I posted or updated. It's been a terrible running season. Long and short of it is 2 new engines.

If anyone needs any parts from ford 351 Merc 233 engines let me know. 2 rebuilt carburetors, air intakes, fuel pumps, starters, etc. Anything I can salvage off of the engines I will for you.
