two things caught my eye. maybe it's the meds, maybe i'm just looking too closely. take a look at pics 34 and 39. pic 34 shows the 'rebuilt' helm panel and pic 39 is a close up of the hour meter. do the cutouts look a bit amateurish or is it just me. the holes are 'less than round'.

Looks like someone made a pannel with cut outs and put it over the existing dash and gages

Our 1995 Trojan 350 is a great boat!!! Well built, easy and safe to get around, runs and handles great (following seas can be a pain) and it is not a cookie cutter searay or other mass produced that you see on the docks

Great boat you have. One of my favorites is the Carver Trojan 440. It's a beast.

Ask any Trojan owner.

between this website, the Facebook page, www.Trojanboat.com and of course the tremendous support and resource asset of BEACON MARINE...……. for an orphan BRAND, the Lancaster Trojans have a tremendous support system.

Better by far than that of many vessels currently in production

Hey Guys,

Ever notice how when I say something like, "I own one of these boats and will try my best to answer your questions."............. the guy never returns? I must scare the heck out of them
