Re: Reverse rotation?

I had always thought the singles were all reverse rotators but I may be wrong. The firing order is a dead give-away. If you switch, I would thin you have to change the trans & prop as well or you will have to drive around backwards.

Re: Options for changing out my fuel tanks.

The idea of using the round tank from a semi sounds interesting, as long as it...1) fits down the hatch hole, and 2) you can obtain the crescent shaped mounts from the semi to go with it. You would also have to fabricate the plumbing to the existing filler cap.

Re: Run Dry blue impellers

Well, took the pumps out this winter and installed the Run-Dry's. We'll see how long they last. The rubber ones dry up & get brittle in a couple years, these should outlast them based on seeing how long the blue synthetic coolant hoses work.

Re: Number of Boats' built ?

The number of models depends on year and whether you are talking about Lake vessels or houseboats. The 32' Sedan Flybridge of the late seventies-early eighties was, I believe, Marinette's best selling model. See a lot of them up here in western Lake Erie. Always see a lot of 37/39's Aft Cabins on th...

Re: A 60' Marinette ?

Got another email from Carl, a.k.a. Sorrydog. He sent some pictures of her after he and his son finished her. Compared to the current photo's, it makes the story even more heart wrenching.

Re: A 60' Marinette ?

I went ahead & emailed Sorrydog and he sent a reply just this evening. First off he would like to say "Hello" to old friends here. He also asked for the link to Boats.com so he could see her. Sadly he explained the story as to why the boat is where it is now. He told me he and his son ...

A 60' Marinette ?

Was cruising the web and found an M on Boats.com. At first glance I dismissed this one as a Marinette Marine ship, but upon looking at the ad, it is in fact a 60' Marinette Aluminum Cruiser. It has a catamaran hull with two Detroit Diesel engines. It has two levels, the upper consists of the helm, l...
