Pix from Great Oaks Rendevous 8-26-06

Well, we were there, but we were over on another dock (we marina there), AND I had to move my daughter into college on Saturday morning, but I wandered over and took some pix for the folks that couldn't be there, had a few beers, shot the crap and generally had a good time.

Hope you like them!

I wish I could have been at the meetings, etc...but had prior commitments.
It was a good time, and very interesting to see the different models and how people had "customized" them.

Need a Trojan party in FL

That looks like a good time. I'd like to see everybody else's handywork. If anybody wants to get a Trojan party together in Florida, I'll help put it together!

Coralkong,

Is your boat the Tri cabin?

Yes. Mine is the one with the blue canvas in the first pic. My boat is named Split Decision.
I'm the one taking the picture.

My friend's boat is the one with the maroon canvas. The 460.

Mine is a '74, and I believe his is a '83.

It was a good time.

Some of the woodwork on the boats (teak) looked phenomenal.
Really did.

Here's another one of mine, taken about 2 weeks before the rendevous (before I attempted to clean the outside, lol...)

Coralkong,

I have been looking at a 36 Tri down where I keep my F32 and am thinking about moving up. The 36 is a 1973 and will need engines, have you had to change out your engines, and if so was it a pain to get the old ones out?

I have not changed my engines, but there were new(er) ones in it before I bought it. Mine has 454's. It came stock with 318's. Still have the owner's manual for the original ones...LOL...

I wouldn't want to contemplate it, other than the engines might have to go through the back door in component pieces. Not a pleasant thought.

I guess you could (and you might have to) pull the back wall out, which would give you more room to move back and forth, but the framing is still there, and I'm not sure I would want to get into that...
