Larry,

I REALLY appreciate the offer, but its not much different from what I have now, other than not have the aft facing seat on the starboard side). We really want the helm to be tilted up some for gauges/electronics.

Thank you so much for offering.

Our 1975 F36 has upper and lower helms with chain/cable steering. I need to check the chain adjustment, but so far, it seems to work well.

I have two helms and the fly bridge console looks like the one in your picture.

Looking on line at F36s I did see all 78 and newer had hydraulic and the 2 pre (75 & 72 ) look to be the chain type ( pipe from upper and lower ) one was refitted to hydraulic . Interesting I did assume wrong .

over the weekend I went looking at F32's, one in particular listed for sale was a disaster and should only be a parts boat, its up here in Rhode Island. I was able to talk my friend out of buying it and found him a much better starting/project boat for just $2,500. I need parts and as do my friends, together we have 4 Trojan F32s ranging from 1973 to 1979. The one I suggest as a parts boat is a dual helm 1982 listed at $3,000 and we got the seller down to $1,350 before running away and backing out. I'm sure it could be had for less.

Wow - 4 F32s?

If I bought another bat (5 now), it would be instant divorce :cry: :wink: but thanks for the tip!

Just need an 80s helm (and time to work on it) ... will call the 2 numbers that I have been sent, just been busy ...

Sorry to see all the northern boats getting hauled. :oops:

Has anyone replaced the floor on their F32 or F36 bridge?

Mine is spongy, so I'm planning to ear it all off and start over. Would love any tips... :?:

I'll check,

Finally mounted my new radar arch and wiring the Nav light. Lots more to do, but it looks great.

Bridge floor is a winter project...

When you get a chance, pictures of the new radar arch would be nice.

We will be doing the bridge floor in spring, along with rebuilding the helm seats.

Will do - we've just been so busy with medical issues.

We haven't been on an overnight cruise in 3 years - but looking much prettier at the dock ;)

I understand. I was at the marina yesterday winterizing the Trojan and the marina owner was giving me a hard time about not using the boat this year.
