New Member Saying Hello!

Post by MagnusTrojan10.8 » Tue Apr 09, 2019 10:34 am

Hi Team,
We joined the forum today. We had our eyes on a Trojan for a long time as the best value for our needs and what the boating industry had to offer.
We just bought our 1989 10.8. She’s got the double birth configuration instead of a lower dinette. We are looking forward to many days this spring, summer, and fall along the Maine Coast. Still on the hard and wrapped, good thing too because it snowed yesterday and will again today and tomorrow! Happy to take suggestions from the community.

Welcome, sounds like your 10.8 is set up more like our 12m.

Welcome. My standard advice to the new used-boat owner: treat yourself to a copy of of Nigel Calder's Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Handbook.

Lot's of goof folks here. Between the search feature and the active users, the answer to your Trojan boat question lies here.
