    Double Ooops

    Don't hold your breath, when she was on the Bainbridge city council she led the charge to save the junk flotilla that had built up over the years in eagle harbor.

    Boat fuel tank ??

    Rubber pads or strips used to secure alloy tanks have a tendency to trap moisture against the metal which, over time, can cause pitting (that you can't see), particularly if the rubber used has carbon black in it's make-up. If possible safest way to mount the tanks is using brackets welded to...

    Boat fuel tank ??

    Typically coated with coal tar epoxy to prevent external issues. Be careful about what is in contact with the tanks at the supports, crevice corrosion is a thing.

    WTB Garmin GHC-10 display unit

    Having an issue with my Garmin AP, think it might be in the dashboard control panel. Need to buy (or borrow) a working display to see if that is the source of my problem. Have checked the usual stuff per Garmin trouble shooting docs. Thanks, Bob

    Anybody familiar with this Westport North River?

    You are right, the simple swap out from Merc to Konrad involves Merc TRS drives, not Bravo 3's. Maybe Bravo II's? Single prop but pretty beefy.

    convert to Konrad drives? Those are tough, common up in AK commercial settings as I've heard. run the B3's till they drop and then convert

    Joining the 30' plus club (New NR 3100SXL build)

    We sandblast the bottom so yes, it doesn't matter where the boat has been or for how long, new or used or how encrusted with barnacles it is, they all look the same after we turn them frosty white.

    Anyone have a Boat trailer

    It was originally set-up for a 32 Almar that had a 400 hp old school Yanmar coupled to a good sized Hamilton jet so bunch of weight aft. There is a lot of keel clearance, might allow the gear on a smaller single screw depending on it's deadrise. Gotta ponder it, probably kick myself later if I...

    Anyone have a Boat trailer

    It's got either 5000 or 6000 lb axles, data tag is unreadable and builder is bk I guess. Just used it for a 28' Pursuit job, the boat didn't reach the winch roller with the stand moved back as far as it would go to give you an idea of what it can handle. Everything is for sale but its a handy...

    Anyone have a Boat trailer

    I've got an alum I-beam trailer can haul up to about 34' (too big for your project). Was going to sell it but has been coming in handy to haul-out bottom jobs that don't have trailers. I know of an avail bunk rig that carried a 25' Cobalt I/O with duals but doubt it has room for...
