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 ...

Interesting Wayne...
On that subject, I found a tag that states 6 people allowed on the flybridge. Does that make sense?
Anyhow thank you for your help.

Re: Help identifying switches at helm

bcassedy, Thank you for the info. The breakers are important. The new light that came with the boat that I have to install is a wireless control "GoLight". It appears that I just have to run positive and negative wires to the light and the switch will only turn the light on & off. The ...

BALLAST in the stern of 39 Sedan

Our 39 Sedan has ballast weight added in the stern by way of lead weights. (see pics) They have been there going back to the original owner. It appears that either he or Marinette added them. There are somewhere between 80 - 100 of these weights. A few (6 dredge fishies) weigh only 10 lbs each. The ...

Re: Swim Ladder Question

My 39 has just a 2 step ladder - like your ladder started out as. My 28 has a 3 step ladder but was probably not original. The 2 step isn't much shorter than the 3 step as the steps are further apart. I have not mounted or used the 2 step on the 39 yet. From experience, the deeper into the water the...
