Re: Looking for an engine rebuilder in Cleveland

Ray at victory is very good, not the cheapest but good. Gellner has a great reputation too but I've not had good experience with a couple of thier motors.

Re: Possibly in the market for 32 express

Just remove the bridge. A express have dual helm. I'd sell mine for the right offer.

Re: question about propeller racing in foul seas

Cavitation, it happens. Not ideal but at that speed and rpm won't hurt anything.

Re: What year and model is this boat?

I hate to say this but unless u enjoy the project, the prices have come down so far that u may find better luck buying one that needs a bit less work. The motor, drive and genny will be likely junk.

Re: Fold Down Masthead light

It's a 360° so as long as it's higher than the windshield. Mines about 18" I think. Most marine suppliers have or can order them. Pretty universal.

Re: Stray DC current

Well, in theory if jumper cables have good contact it will instantly fire up and then act normal from alternator even with a totally bad battery. With that said, batteries sometimes loose just one cell which can do odd things. Best way to check it is do a proper load test on them when fully charged....

Re: Stray DC current

Jeff. Something else must be going on. That's about 1/3 watt. I'd love to see a load test on the batteries or if something is kicking on overnight that is a heavier load? Very odd.
