Wanted mid 80's 32' Marinette express or fisherman

WOW!! I have been looking for a 32' express or fisherman for over a month now and have not found one even to look at. I am somewhat at a disadvantage being located in Erie Pa 4 hours away from the West end where many Marinette's are, 2 were sold as I made the call to get more information. Now that t...

Interior cabin space

I am looking to buy a 32' express (no bridge) or a 32' fisherman vintage 1980's. Is the cabin space the same in both models. I like the U-shaped dinette and the couch on the starboard side. Both models in the mid to late 1980's are difficult to find but the search continues.

Re: Source for 5/8" starboard marine anti slip

Thanks for the replies, We thought about aluminum but only if we could buy the complete and insulated deck that was offered until recently by Marinette, I understand health issues have made this not available. We are searching for 5/8" starboard, I try to keep any restoration as original as pos...

Thanks for the information,
I did a little research on PVC and it seems it doesn't hold up well in direct sunlight, also concerned about it's strength especially in 1/2" thickness.
I don't plan to cover the aft deck with anything so it will be exposed to the outside.

Source for 5/8" starboard marine anti slip

I am replacing the aft deck on my sons 32 1988 Marinette sedan. I don't want to route 3/4" starboard to fit under the sliding doors.
I cannot seem to find white A/S 5/8" (.6250) thick starboard anywhere.
Any information on where I can buy this product will be appreciated.

GGB muffler inserts

The 318's on my 1988 28" M express seem to be getting louder under the hardtop. I thought about replacing the veritone mufflers but looks way to difficult to access them, probably lifting the deck to do the job right. I found these as an alternative, GGB Inserts, they are attached SS rings that...

Re: Hull design

Marinette made many hull changes 1976-1977, the 32 went from a 11 1/2' beam to a 12' beam, around the same time the 28'er went from a 10 1/2' beam to 11'. Also the bows on most models got a flair which directed spray outward away from the hull, before that the spray rides up and on the hull. Many bo...
