Re: Nautolex - Original White w/Charcoal Stripes

Re: Value question 32 express bridge

Thanks guys, at the end of the day it doesn't pay to mothball her for a few years, boats break just sitting and it'll still need maintenance. I've decided we're gonna keep running her.

With that said, my wife and I have discussed taking a few years off from boating and thought about selling versus storing our boat. It's a 1969 32 express b...

Re: Rough seas

Love all the stories guys. Javalin390, I remember the 2015 rendezvous. Our Lil 32 was still on land getting new rudders but that weekend was brutal. It was all of 12' waves. Its reassuring that the general consensus is the BigM are up to the task. I've never felt unsafe except caught in big followin...

Rough seas

So I noticed this topic doesn't come up much. Our boats admittedly are known for being roomy and very economic but lack in ride quality foot for foot due to the weight. Even though they get thrown around in big water what sea worthy experiences have you guys had. I feel like though it sometimes feel...

Re: 1978 37 Express - CL

You don't have to have closed cooling if your in salt water. It's good idea, but tons of people run seawater cooling.

Re: Rudder shaft corossion concern.

That is who did mine. Nice quality. Ended up reinstalling the support plates and brass bushing housings. I just insulated everything with nylon. It's way stronger and no corrosion issues anymore. To answer above Ka 90 an aluminum alloy is the correct anodes material for all parts of the Marinette.
