Re: New Boater, New to me Marinette.

Do you have the metal track for the sliding windows? If you have the plastic it is probably ruined by the UV. So you have to find something. Hard to find the metal, but worth it if you can find it. I would start looking for that so it is not a hold up later. Everything else is just money and man hou...

Re: What is special paint, what does special paint have

I put anti-static wicks on airplanes but I don't think my metal boat sitting in two feet of saltwater will build up a static charge. I would be leery of clicking on any of those links.

Re: Question to owners about your 32' FB Sedan

Don't forget you can cruise on one engine. You don't go twice as fast on two, but you burn twice as much gas. I've been surprised how little speed you gain with the second engine. We do a lot of trolling on one and then use two when we're ready to go faster.

Re: Stress cracks ???

Sounds like someone's boat left at his shop and being sold for storage fees. Might be a deal at the right price.

Re: Stress cracks ???

I would say cracked welds are a possibility but rare. Most likely in a bad factory weld. These hulls are built very stout and have very little flexing so you will have very little stress cracking. The boat for sale sounds like someone got the boat that doesn't know anything about it. Now they are tr...

Re: Chrysler 360 will not start post degreasing...

Good, you have narrowed down the problem to no spark. This is an automotive distributor, look at a Motors manual (your library will have them and make you a copy of the pages you need ) or ask at a NAPA store for an info sheet, it will have a lot of info for you. Get a spark from the coil first and ...

Re: Chrysler 360 will not start post degreasing...

Find out if you have a spark ! Just pull the center wire off the distributor from the coil. Place it 1/4 inch from the block or some other grounded part. You might want to hold it there by weighing it down with something. Crank the engine and watch for a spark. Then pull off any flame arrester / air...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

I see you are using the same fuse holders I have. May I suggest that if you have room, that you install an extra one and label it "spare". It sure is nice to have one holding a spare 20 amp fuse right at your finger tips when you need it, or a spare cap if one is bad or gets dropped. Plus ...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

That's what I wondered. Sounds like the factory changed how they installed them on the newer vessels. As long as you have red for the throttles it is understood what they do. Mine were four black handles so I have red tape color coding the throttles and a big L and R under them. Sometimes the driver...
