Re: Boating checklist

Ok, from time to time I will ask questions which are completely obvious to the rest of the community. This may be one of those times. Do marinette owners keep emergency paddles on their boats? I am purchasing all of the safety gear and I found some extending paddles which are 6 feet long, when fully...

Re: First Post, First Boat, 32' Sedan

Bill,

Thanks for all of your insight. Each day I learn a little more. From what I have witnessed by riding on the boat I don't think I need immediate work done on the prop or shaft but since I did feel some vibration I will check it out while the bottom is easily accessible.

Boating checklist

I tend to be very process oriented and security minded and I was wandering if anyone on this forum uses a checklist for either a yearly inspection or prior to leaving the dock. If not, I was going to start creating this document to share with the community so I could start giving back. Another usefu...

Re: First Post, First Boat, 32' Sedan

Ewrice, if the boat sits so shallow, what depth do I need to watch out for on my depth gauge? Like I said before the boat has one but it doesn't mean much to me yet. Also, while the boat is out of the water does anyone know how to check the prop to make sure it is true? Can I spin it by hand while t...

Re: First Post, First Boat, 32' Sedan

Just thinking, should I repack or at least get the stuff to repack the stuffing box while the boat is out of the water?

Sorry for the number of questions. I'm just excited but I also want to dry or the bilge as much as reasonable.

Re: First Post, First Boat, 32' Sedan

Thanks for the advice on the rpm's everyone. For the price I am getting the boat I am willing to risk the expense. After speaking with the sellers again today, the boat scared them and they just weren't experienced and didn't really use it. The previous owner 2 years ago told them to keep it at our ...

Re: First Post, First Boat, 32' Sedan

I'm in Louisville as well but we will be putting her in barren Lake. I plan on buying a trailer next year so we can hop lakes and enjoy the Ohio. It would be a real thrill to watch thunder from the boat.

Hello Everyone, I have been looking for a 32' Marinette Sedan for about a year and we just put down the deposit on a '76 Sedan. I am new to boating but have been reading up on Big M's for a few months and would love some advice from everyone here. To start off, I will fill you in on my observations ...
