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...

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

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...

My valve covers have been leaking oil for a long time, previous owner bandaged the problem with diapers in the bilge. The spark plug wires are routed between the valve covers and exhaust manifolds( Not center dump but straight style). It is difficult to remove valve covers with the spark plug wires ...

I also have a Lewmar pro fish 700 with chain,rope and Delta deepset anchor on my 28' Marinette express. I anchor on Lake Erie , sometimes in 60-70' of water, holds great.

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...

New steering wheel

After installing the Seamaster hydraulic steering system I wanted a new steering wheel. I like big wheels, I guess it goes back to the days when I owned a 1955 Buick with no power steering, it took a big wheel to turn my first ride. The wheel on my 1987 28' is somewhat big about 20"s but has sp...

Re: Micron CF bottom paint performance

Hi Bill,
I switched to Blue Water Shelter Island copper free 3 years ago with great results. It's about 25% less than Trilux 33 and sheds slime and zebra mussels as well or better.

Re: Steermaster steering replacement

I finally finished installing the Seastar hydraulic system in my 28' single station Marinette, would I do it again? Maybe! It was a lot more work than I originally thought. The helm pump install needed a larger hole cut into the dash board, The nylon lines are difficult to bend and work with, to ins...
