Re: engines seem locked up

Nice boat, love the aft cabin models. Talked with a fellow that owns a 41', told me the motors will come out the side windows if you remove glass and window tracks. Hopefully that won't be necessary. As stated by fellow M owners, try to free them up first. Good luck and welcome aboard.

Re: Ebay Angel!

Very interesting, looks really nice, but person donating her says both engines are bad. If you look at the engine photo's, these are raw water engines...the boat is docked in Punta Gorda, Fla. Not good. Heck of a deal but whoever buys her will need to move her to a lake or outfit the engines for clo...

Re: Engine Drain Plugs

I went through a similar situation during my first winterizing. In order to save some money, I decided that I would winterize the engines myself, and I'm glad I did. First thing I learned was that all the threaded drain plugs, both the lower two in the block and all the ones in the exhaust manifolds...

Re: Ceramic starter item

Hold on there !! You MUST use the marine specific ballast. The automotive version is not sealed and thus will cause an engine room fire. I think NAPA carries both auto and boat ballasts for close to the same price, but you MUST use the marine version.

Re: Marinette 39 rudders

Same here. My 37' had steel rudders, which ended up rotting away to the point of destroying the cutlass bearings and the packing glands. If the packing is still sealing good, you might be ok, but....If you have it on dry land, you might want to drop them out and look at the shafts. I know it's a pai...

Re: 440 Chryslers in 32ft sedan flybridge

I'm sure they may have, probably a pretty rare option. There is a Sportsman down on the Ohio River that was special built with twin 426 Max Wedge engines. Rumor has it that it flies. Believe it was built for an executive at Marinette.
