Re: Marinette 39 Sedan Transport plan

At the risk of repeating what you already know, here's one piece of the transportation plan that always is mentioned by those who've moved a boat with a flybridge. That is, be very careful to label every wire you disconnect. That will save you much aggravation at the other end. I'd add one more for ...

Re: Do the Anodes have to be bolted to the hull or can they by glued?

My anodes are getting eaten up and there was still some pitting. I do Not want to drill through the hull to mount additional stuff near the props so I guess I will just replace what I can where it was originally placed. In the 20+ yrs I've been following Marinette forum posts, no one has suggested ...

Re: Do the Anodes have to be bolted to the hull or can they by glued?

Using adhesive to attach anodes prevents the two metals from making contact which is the opposite of what you must achieve. Very bad (and useless) idea -sorry to disappoint. Assuming your keel anodes are properly attached, what's the condition of the anodes on your trim tabs and rudders? Is the shaf...

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan sea trial

(Jeff, he said no in the post above). Jim Elias has good info but I'd just offer one change in the order of things -- check the coolant outflow first. Make sure it's flowing nicely, then you can look at the other items. A good job for a mate or guest.

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan sea trial

I forget whether that mechanical survey was professionaly done. But it's probably now a moot point. Wondering whether having your mechanic onboard would be useful. Considering the purchase price, the labor charge for an hour might be worth it if you are uncertain what to check.

Re: Marine Sealant

Jeff is correct, 5200 has a really strong grip - it's referred to as a "permanent" adhesive, hardening like rock or steel. It's 4200 that you want to use - it seals well and is considered removable. Here's how it's described by the mfr: "...3M 4200 Fast Cure is a one-part general purp...

Re: Marinette Production History

Marinette, or what was left of it, went on the auction block in 1994. John Althouse bought the name, tools, parts. He hoped to resurrect the brand but was unable to do it.

Re: water hose

A strong hunch here that you will not enjoy. There is probably no part number for that since water hoses can be in such an infinite range of lengths that they are sold by the foot. I'm afraid you will have to engage a helper to pull this one and replace it with one of the same length that you purcha...

Re: Wear - Shaft

Advice from a boat maintenance article I read: double the wear you measure on one side of the shaft. If, for example, there's a 1/8" notch, it's actually 1/4" because the wear, of course, is on both sides of the shaft. This example is extreme - 1/4" is a failure waiting to happen. Hop...
