Re: 32' SFB

..."That being said, over the last 9 years, I have spent almost 1.5 times the purchase price in making her new again," Yikes! Kinda mirrors my big M experience. It's amazing how much work and $$ one can spend on a boat, any boat. Jeff PS: That apparently includes boat trailers. I stupidly ...

Re: 32' SFB

Two thousand hours is a lot on those engines, and the transmissions as well. I admit she looks nice, but she's also forty years old. Many components in that boat (unless they have been replaced/ upgraded) are far past their prime: both struts and or bearings, the (troublesome) stock water pump, the ...

Re: 32' SFB

Re: shaft alignment

My old M came from Florida where it spent years in salt water without significant damage. And, for the record, that evil stuff can damage ANY boat--ever see outdrives half eaten up from corrosion?

..." quote Jeff on where his money is buried."

Those old coffee cans have long ago been dug up and used.
