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

Re: rudder bushing

That's an interesting observation. My guess is that if the shaft zinc isn't worn and there's no corrosion on the shaft, put it back and forget about it. I would be surprised if that is copper on the zinc. Doesn't seem to make sense BTW folks, I have a pair (I'm pretty sure iot's two - though it may ...

Re: What to look for on a inspection

Most of what you noted is cosmetics with wear as expected. Pop would need to be straightened, not a big deal. Window leak significant but almost always easily fixable with about 5 bucks of sealant. Someone else may comment on rudder play. I don't know whether 1/4 inch slop is out of range. Most sign...

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

Pls note that coating the hull must take place within hours of sanding to bare metal. Letting the bare metal sit even overnight isn't a good move because aluminum very quickly oxidizes, coats itself to prevent corrosion. That coating interferes with the ability of paint to stay attached. so, if time...

Re: Rough seas

The boat can handle rough seas. For me, really rough was a day with 4-footers. Taken head on or a little off the bow, it's a roller coaster ride with some hard landings but the boat isn't jeopardized - just an insult to passenger comfort (though it was never bad on the bridge). Following seas are a ...

Re: picture of hull annodes.

glad to hear that -- the son (John Althouse) bought out a very large and varied inventory of genuine Marinette parts and other stock. You could save yourself a lot of aggravation by checking here when you are in the market for parts for M's
