Re: what to do when railing screws are stripped out

I believe Jeff posted years ago that he (or perhaps it was someone else) used a few nylon washers around the bolts ( between the bottom of the rail feet and the deck). Separating the rail feet and the deck allowed water to ran through, not getting trapped and causing corrosion. The washers sealed th...

Re: I need a Marinette 32' couch

Re: Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separator Model 299

Carl: Of course, you said you were going to replace the cart's....my old eyes and very sleepy brain glossed right over that. I found the old Perkos far superior to the "modern" ones I replaced them with for a lot of money.

Re: Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separator Model 299

Urging you to put the Perko ceramic cartridges back into the filters. They last a long time and are extremely effective at getting water out of the fuel. Hate to disparage but this was an ill-advised move by the PO. Cleabning up the exterior of the filters is ok, they'll look pretty. But your best i...

Re: HIN on a Marinette 32

Yes, photo above meant to show rub rail location. It appears it may be a strip of metal screwed to the rail (but my recollection is faint and the numbers could have been stamped into the rail itself.)

Re: Steering Stuck

"...Have you looked into converting over to hydraulic steering.... When I sold the 88 boat in 2011, the hydraulic steering was functioning quite well and needed about 15-20 minutes worth of maintenance in all those years. Not trying to spend your money but your time and effort in assembling, cu...

Re: Shaft size converting to diesel

My 32' boat with twin Chrysler 318 240hp engines had 1 1/4" shafts. If you go for bigger shafts, will the struts accomodate them?

Re: Waste tank/s setup question

It's the long time concensus here that the 2nd hole doesn' connect to anything. It's just a hole that we have all assumed was put there for future use. My cap would not come off either. I suspect that, unused. it was corroded into place. I had an "88 32" FBS
