Re: Just spotted 1978 37' with twin 440's

Ah but what does "rebuilt" mean? The person listing the boat may have a vastly different definition than the rest of us.

That said, I always liked the looks of the 37 sedan and with 440s she should move.

Re: Before and After Topside Color Scheme

And from having a boat with a dark blue hull, I can tell you that you can see every scrape and ding. Sure you can touch up the paint, but it's obvious. (At least to me. Everyone else thought it looked great.) I also buffed out the finish every fall and followed up with a wax job in the spring. Good ...

Re: What's in a Boat's Name?

We had a time when we bought the 28. My secretary finally asked if there was some Italian word and that did it:
Innamorata

It confuses people until the look it up on their smartphones. . .

Cool. Can you post pictures of your 26' flybridge?

Re: Prepping for Topside Restoration and Paint.

I've been there. As you know, it's much easier to do the work with the boat in the water: it is back-breaking to go up and down a ladder carrying stuff. One day someone stopped me and said he heard I was seen walking down the dock with the kitchen sink. (Actually the whole countertop.) I confirmed t...

Re: Bow thruster

You might want to ask Lewmar. Personally I'd check with a couple of suppliers to decide who was making the most sense.

Good luck.

Re: Ohio River Lock & Dam woes

It's quite an article. I thought we had it bad in the Pittsburgh District until I read that article. All three of the locks downstream from Pittsburgh are in terrible shape--the newest one was completed around 1936. Emsworth, which is just downstream from Pittsburgh is in a constant state of repair ...

Re: Replacing aft deck

We installed an aluminum deck in my 28. The original paint job flaked off so we repainted it with Rustoleum aluminum paint and it looked good, but not great. An area rug made it more livable.

I did not notice any appreciable increase in noise though.

Good luck.

Re: Marinette club

Don't forget the company owns the name and the designs (Though I wonder if anyone would ever register the seahorse with the tutu.) so you may get a cease and desist letter (or worse) if someone decides to push it. John A told me he bought the company to get the designs, trade marks and names and his...
