Re: Shaft size converting to diesel

Thanks, Barkleydave. Hope they changed the shafts, since 1.25 won't be enough. Do you know what the shaft material was or is on the 80s boats?

Re: Pumping out your holding tank

We don't have a marina within 25 miles. I live in the country so do have a septic tank and a dump station for my RV. In the past with the 34 Californian I pumped into the portable RV type tank and hauled it up to my septic tank. Not the best, but all things considered it works. I'll have to read up ...

Re: Rough seas

Re: Surveyor tasks while boat in the sling

Appreciate the information. What do I search for to see what and "isolating bolt sleeve" looks like. Even though this isn't the double cabin it is very roomy from what I can see in the pictures. The fly bridge is huge and got my attention. It will be great to watch the Blue Angles during t...
