Re: Block Heater

Yes we boat year round on Lake Lanier, about 35 miles NE of Atlanta. Although temperatures here are mild for the most part from time to time they fall low enough to burst a block.

Block Heater

Anyone use a "Block Heater"? Have a bilge heater with a blower that comes on 40 degrees, seems to work fine but if it were to fail things may not be good. Was looking at magnetic block heaters along with a thermo cube, a small thermostat that comes on at 35 degrees. Hopefully if the main h...

Re: Air Conditioning

When we purchased our 32 it had a Dometic 15000 BTU already installed. Since I've added an Air King Floor Fan under the steps, had to cut the handle off, and a small oscillating fan on top of the cabinet between the table and bath. With the A/C set on 7-8 and the fans on low you can almost hang meat...

Re: Hull Rub Rail M39

Marinette had rub rail about a year ago. If I remember correctly the shipping was high, considered oversized. I'm missing about 4' too.

Re: 318 to 350 swap

Your a glutton for punishment, the fitment issues you discussed was what turned me back to the 318's. Are you running 71C's with 1" shafts?

Re: Motor refit

Got them directly from Marinette with new bearings, did take about a month and was a bit pricey but original equipment. Kept the old set for future reference.

Re: Motor refit

Unless there is a specific reason for wanting outboards, I'd be willing to bet you could put rebuilt engines, transmissions, new struts and cutless bearings in cheaper with a lot less headaches. With close to the same reliability.

Re: Gauges

Replacing my gauges is on the agenda too. In keeping with the vintage look I've considered the Moal Bomber Series, even called Classic Instruments with my non marine concerns. They told me when I was ready to pull the trigger call them and they would epoxy coat the circuits making them "marine&...

Re: Worth Buying? 76' 37 foot sedan

Pictures were fine. I would approach him with I'm not trying to insult you but your boat is worth half of your asking price, at best. She sewing and you sanding-painting can save a good bit, you start going into those engines and you're going to spend a fortune. Ask if and when the exhaust manifolds...

Re: Worth Buying? 76' 37 foot sedan

How much? Personally I would go into it as total restoration. If you can get it cheap and are a handy person go for it. If the owner is emotionally attached, not willing to part with cheap, and you're going to have to hire out the repairs, your in for an expensive venture.
