May 2017 Upper Bay Rendezvuex

Hello Everyone!

It's been a busy autumn yanking out the stbd 6-71 for its rebuild but she should be ready to go by mid-spring.

I'm probably doing a shake-down cruise to Higgins in St. Michaels the beginning of May and going to Henderson's Wharf in Fells Point towards the end of May. John Leed will be in tow both trips as the tech advisor. I'll update this post as the dates firm but thought I'd send out some tentative plans for the start of the 2017 season.

Thanks prowlersfish! John said that the Trojan design team took great pride in making sure engine swaps could be accommodated without cutting fiberglass.

I jokingly asked him if that meant sometimes lifting the engine vertically... A serious "Yes" was the reply.

Think I'll wait to bolt on the turbo until after the block is back in place!

I had to take my door off but the Cummins came right out of F36 , I could removed the stop and opened more but the screws would not budge.

You should try and get a 671 out of a Viking 45 . Not fun

If you are suggesting a get together in St. Michaels or Baltimore, we are interested. The only caveat would be our older daughter is graduating the weekend of the 13th, so that would be out for us.
