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.)

I know you can't read the numbers but I think the annotated blowup is self-explanatory
"...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...

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
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 ...

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...
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 ...
