Marinette Boat literature

I was going through my boat paperwork pile and I found a few fun nuggets for us Marinette freaks. Here is a link to my rebuild website 1978marinette32.wordpress.com/2018/03/15/some-marinette-literature/ with three links to a Marinette manual, a Marinette brochure, and an article in trade magazine. S...

Chicago boat show

I got a free T-shirt from Progressive Insurance at the Chicago Boat Show. Does that boat look familiar?

Wood engine mount spacer thickness

I am in the process of reinstalling the 318 Chrysler engines in in my 32 FB Sedan and I noticed that the wood engine spacers are different thicknesses—by about 1/4". First I thought it was because the inboard engine stringer was lower to account for the the slope of the hull, but they appear to...

Re: Soliciting advice on how to pull my engines.

I used an engine hoist inside the cabin. Then set the motor on a furniture dolly and rolled the motor to the outside cockpit. From there I used a forklift and a jib room on the forks to lift it up and out of the boat. The motors are finished now but I'm not sure if I'll reinstall them that way. Here...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Me too. I added alarms for exhaust temp, oil pressure and water temp. I decided to use Faria gauges on white quarter inch mat acrylic. I still need to fill in the etched labels so they are readable. I'm documenting the total rehab of a 32 Sedan Flybridge here: https://1978marinette32.wordpress.com

Re: Reverse rotation engine fresh water pump connections reversed?

The fresh water pumps on marine engines are not directional (same pump for regular and reverse rotation motors). The vanes are straight. A car water pump is directional, though. See the images

Re: Reverse rotation engine fresh water pump connections reversed?

This is a diagram of the raw water impellers, right? I am talking about the fresh water pumps bolted directly on the engine block.

Re: Reverse rotation engine fresh water pump connections reversed?

I am not sure that is the case here. Here are photos of both the port and starboard engines I took before I disassembled everything and the orientation of the pumps are the same. Any ideas?

Reverse rotation engine fresh water pump connections reversed?

I am rebuilding a pair Chrysler 318s and I did not take notice of the plumbing of the fresh water cooling system when I was disassembling the motors. Now that I am replacing all of the hoses, do I have to switch the inlet and outlet on the reverse rotation motor? Both motors have non-directional pum...

Re: Removal of interior bitumastic coating on hull

So that's what it's called. I've always called it the "Black Crap". Jeff There is a guy online who has been restoring a 46 ft Chris Craft Roamer—all aluminum like the Marinette and similar construction. I got the term from his website, https://1969chriscraftroamer46.wordpress.com. This gu...
