Re: any hull line drawings?

Cool. Thank you. It almost looks like a jet drive.

The boat looks like a 28 to me, but in the early days Marinette made some 31s.

Re: any hull line drawings?

If John Althouse is back in business (anyone know?) he may have them.

However, you can't drop a comment about that early outdrive and not have us clamor for pictures!

Re: looking for trailer/info for 1970 28'

Once upon a time, I borrowed a trailer from an experienced boater at our marina. He was a former long haul trucker and showed me how to figure out if we were over height without measuring: We parked next to a tractor trailer and discovered the boat had at least a foot less air draft than the trailer...

Re: Interesting find...

I looked at a few of them, but because they went of business in the early 1970s the pickings were slim. They are very cool though. I looked at a 28 after but it was rough and the owner had outsize expectations of its worth. Later that day, I looked at a CC Roamer Dispatcher 30 and although I loved t...

Re: Wow, another potential project

Not likely. Some 37s were made with Volvo diesels, but I never saw or heard about a 32 coming from the factor with anything but gas engines. I"ve been a Marinette fan since I was a teenager--which was (cough, gasp, wheeze) a long time ago so I followed the models till the mid-1980s when we star...

DANGER WILL ROBINSON.

I agree. The post is very suspicious. It is illogical and the grammar and syntax are poor.

Re: Stress cracks ???

I agree, it sounds like they mean there were defects in the original welds.

This is why a report from good marine surveyor who is familiar with aluminum boats is helpful. I remember mine going over the welds.

Re: Stress cracks ???

Um, yeah dude. Like the hull got sooo stressed when it hit that bridge pier so we welded it man. . .

Or. .

Oh Boy! All the stress cracks are welded! Maybe they replaced the seacocks with carburetors too! It makes about as much sense.

Re: Gaskets for San Juan Bellingham strainer

Re: BALLAST in the stern of 39 Sedan

Update: My uncle tells me his 1970-71 28' came with sandbags to cure a list. (He bought it from the original owner who moved up to a bigger boat shortly after getting the BigM.) He and his brother decided lead slabs were a better solution. Although his 28 had twins and a generator, it did not have t...
