Re: 1966 26' Express Chevrolet 350 Conversion

I went with a Johnson pump f6b ( I believe ) crankshaft driven pump on my chevy's. If you have clearance in front of the engine, that would be an option.

Re: Fuel economy

I thought so also, but you can't get a hold of them, and all their dealers say they can't get anything from them either.

Re: Fuel economy

Floscan went out of business a year or two ago, someone bought them up, but they do not reply to any form of communication. I tried to order the twinscan flow meter, but no luck. Lowrance and Garmin have fuel flow sensors to connect to their NEMA 2000 backbones.

Re: Trolling Speed

My 28 express with 350 chevy's, which were about the same with the 318's, trolls around the high 2's to 3 mph in gear one engine at idle. I use trolling bags to get it down to where I want it. Hang them off your side cleats with a rope off the back to make sure they stay out of the props. Amish outf...

Re: Alcohol / Electric Stove

Jville, what size boat do you have? The cheapest option might be to just use a coleman propane stove as needed, or I have seen they make some compact butane stoves as well. These would be portable options and would not be the answer if you are looking for a permanent one.

Re: Alcohol / Electric Stove

Yes, they were both bent. Being that it was five years ago since I started this thread, I had them straightened, and also ordered two new ones a couple of years ago. I should have gone that route to start off with, they charged me three times what they quoted to get them straightened, and I don't th...

Re: Alcohol / Electric Stove

I had replaced one of the original burners with a replacement from Kenyon. They both work, but not very good. It takes forever to boil water for a percolator. And I tried to fry up some canned potatoes, it never quite got hot enough to get them browned. I plan to replace it with an Origo, or take it...

Re: Questions about desire to re power a 32 Sedan with outboards

The total cost of such an endeavor would likely cost more than the entire boat. I'm not saying not to do it, just one of the many considerations you will need to address. A new 250 outboard is going to run you roughly $17-20k, Buying a bracket to handle that outboard is going to cost a few thousand ...

Re: Pulpit Restoration

Carl is/was a valuable member of this forum. He did an amazing job of fixing up his boat. I don't know why he left or deleted his content. Let's just hope that he feels compelled to come back and share his knowledge.
