So who does this kind of work LOCALLY??? :D
I was just about to make a low ball offer ... :mad:
If you're referring to the LRB, it's no longer for sale.
Was thinking that 1 too but need to confirm it's the same dome size. Prefer a repair but if not, I might just replace the whole set-up....
I tried there 1st ... nada
Cracked my dome. I believe it's made of plastic ... anyone have a place to repair it?
Koden radar dome. Maybe they're standard and I can buy a...
Yeah.... those axles look like they're 20 yrs old w all that rust.
It was the 1 day Home Depot sales .... so it ended yesterday
Just passing along the info ....
I believe it's a 1 day sale only ... online.
Lots of calls, but no takers.
TTT, make me an offer.
Extra shield I had and dont need.
Comes EXACTLY as pictured - nothing else is included ONLY WHATS PICTURED.

Bigger is better ...can never be too big.
The 'all combined' scenario you reference is the switch being in 'emergency' mode wherein ALL poles/circuits are connected correct?
Is the 2nd switch correct? 2 circuits, 4 poles, but only 3 poles are utilized?
This one is cleaner (less switches).
I think this is what I'll go w/.
Wow that's great!
Should've looked there 1st :D
For those w/ twin engines and dedicated batteries for EACH engine PLUS a house battery (in other words 3 battery banks in all) what's your setup?...
Talk about a waste of 8 mins of my life! Total click bait!

I'm finding pricing ~$95/spool of 100'. Wondering if anyone has seen better? eBay & WM were comparable from what I could see.
Looking for 100' spool? Anyone have a good source/price for this stuff?
12 gauge - 3 wire: round or flat, no preference either way?
Which model? Pics?
I thought the same. I got 2 VP 41Bs in my Radon and was under the impression max HP on them are 200.
Did you JUST buy her?? Moving up already??? LOL
Looks like they're asking $279K on yachteorld :D
Willing to separate tires vs rims OR pkg deal only?
I found a 5,000 mile downhill stretch to drive my F250 down.
I for 1, do NOT want a Parker o_O
It sounds like Orange County is 'reasonable' vs other counties ...
$193 for my Farallon .... I'm not complaining.
Just got mine from Orange County - Farallon. $193.
Orange, CA to Santa Barbra to pick up from Radon ... empty truck. 24 MPG.

I LOVE MY 6.7 DIESEL!!!
I run a 2017 F250 6.7 and I get ~19.5 MPG combo city/hwy :cheers::rockin:
Description says "disc brake drums" - a little confusing.
Pics look like drum brakes.
This is an old thread but my 2 boats are SO ON POINT!!! :D:D
This is the ONLY issue you need to worry about. :-)

I'm still trying to figure out what 'bullet proofing" means ....
I thought about converting my truck to ride on air bags only (Kelderman comversion) but alas, the bill would have been pretty hefty. o_O
Sounds like these Jabscos are successful if kept dry ...
That's why I went w/ a F250 ... the ride on the newer 3/4 tons are VASTLY improved vs the older models.
Dont be shy Dave ... let's see the rig!! :D
11K lbs is a lot to tow.
My biggest concern is flat vs uphill/downhill. On paper, everything works. In the real world ... not so much.
Shit happened but you came back safe. Cliche as it may sound, thats all that matters....theres always tomorrow!!
I was looking into those Rule Torunaments w the bronze base. Cheaper than the Jabsco but much more than the Rules. Thoughts???
No one is knocking the boat, it's the price that keeps it FS.
Not to mention the additional drag thus reduced fuel efficiency
That's how you know its NEW, never used :D
I think PLUMBING in the 2nd one is the route I'm going w/.
Seems like Rule, Atwood, etc. all have the same perception from users.
The amp draw is an issue w/ Jabscos, I agree. 9 amps I believe ... quite hefty.
The Rules were what I historically used but to MyNomad's point,...
Jabsco Cyclone .... I'm hearing a lot of noise about them. I've co templates going that way ...

That is EXACTLY what I want to do to my Radon!!!! Drop the rear hatch/deck so it's as low as possible vs the boats main deck!!
Do you have final pics of the rear hatch setup?? Would love to see ...
What are we talking about here .... tofu?
Are you referring to the engine box hat h in the very back?? That's a very similar setup to my Radon LRB.
Not sure it's relevant but mine is 2.5" super marine plywood glassed in - straight shaft (gas) converted to I/O diesel
We BOTH know that can never be the case!!
I've got a '17 F250 w the 6.7L (diesel) .... I've never had a single slip of the tires pulling EITHER of my boats (27 Farallon or 27 Radon) .......

Pictures really help me better understand
This was perfect. Thanks!!
Is there a logical reason in the numbering? 1x3 vs 2x4? What exactly do they mean?
Everything AND some .... yup.
The Farallon is outta commission for awhile ....
That was going to be my next question!!! LOL!!
I even go barefoot LOL
Thank you for that!!
Thanks for the explanation. X2 for the suggestion!!! :)
Sorry for the newbie question ... can someone please educate me?
Still looking ....

Previous "Buyer" need not contact me - I refuse to deal w Flakes.
I'm curious about title on the boat ... how does that work? Is it similar to CA where theres a "pink slip" or do they run w Bill of Sale or ...??
Love the black finish!!!
$100K for a 20 ft boat??? o_Oo_O
Will be at Fred Hall tomorrow, I hope to at least.
$475 cash. LMK.
I love the Radons but is it just me or is that boat a little weird looking???
What a pig!! nice!!!
Guy on the ad doesnt know a thing about the boat. He doesnt even know what yr the hull is o_Oo_Oo_O
If urs is a 2007 model .... that's fairly new compared to what usually comes on the market: ~1999 models ~$70K.

Steve, is this one similar to the other 2 you recently sold? How many of these do you have?
I know the feeling. Got a 4 yr old and 7 yr old. They're finally old enough ... Hence the Farallon :D
Can u post pics or text them to me? PM sent w #
Bump for a Seller who actually did a REALLY good job posting a FS listing!!!! Great job on abundant # of pics!!!!

That's double the range he initially quoted o_O
Got a buddy who's looking pretty seriously for one. LMK if you've got one, know someone etc.
Hey, at least u got the bugs :-)
"Gentlemens Start ...." gotta love it!!
Back by 10:30 ... what's not to love about that???
I've wondered about this topic too!! But point well made, ive come to a similar conclusion.
Old is better!! New boats now-a-days just arent built that well!!
Dddaaammmm Matt!!! Looking REAL NICE!!!!!
This is a GREAT summary post!!!
Good choice! You treat the diesel right, itll treat you right. Simple as that.
Can you talk us through what you said around the back?? Is that a swim platform behind the baitwell or ..?
If it WAS a Radon, itd be in my driveway already. :-)
I'm going to be needing this info soon. Subscribed!!
Exactly my point .... enjoy the SoCal weather but just know you gotta deal w the traffic etc.
Once a SoCal, always a SoCal.
I've lived here all my life, the traffic doesnt bother me - just plan ahead and you'll be fine. The problem arises...
I like what I'm hearing!! I should move down to SD!!!
I dont know the obsession w/ outboards now-a-days. In my book, nothing beats a solid diesel.

Love the 26 Blackmans!!!
I have so much respect for you for taking on this type of project, I could never. SUBSCRIBED!!
The new ramp is as expected ... many love it, some hate it. That's life.
I've got fond memories of Shelter Launch Ramp .... from the under-sized tow vehicles to the cluster-f*$% of too many boats, too little dock space ...
I've never seen a Buffalo on the beach, let alone take of pic of one. Nice!!!
Sweet and the the point! Thanks for the report! :-)
Interested in 25. More detailed pics pls?
Is that pricing for all 5 windows???
Neil c - is that your current boat?
I know the feeling. Looked for a 32 for the longest time, couldnt find used and wasnt going to go new so settled in a 28s well :-)
Dave, you still have the 32???? Or is that a former boat??
Not sure who the comment was aimed towards but I PM-ed Seller a few days ago but still havent heard back o_O
I'm interested in the unit itself, no transducer or card. PM-ed Seller, no response yet.
If I went 32, itd have to be a straight inboard.
Correct, the 32 is the only Farallon model that offers a walk in head.
I tried for the 32 before settling in my 27 .... they just arent around unless you want to go new.
Would LOVE to see more pics if you have any to share!!
VERY NICE!!! Boat specs.!?!?!?
Also, is this the 'new' volvo DPH?? 2K hours?
Spoke to Kozwel yesterday .... the new ones are supposed to be better.
The new Volvo outdrives are expected to last ~1,500 hrs vs prior older versions.
I'll remember that when I'm NOT doing a face plant onto the deck bc I tripped over the engine box LOL
IMHO ... better than an engine box
I am doing the EXACT same to mine!! Please share pics, experience, etc.!!! :appl::appl:
Hes ALWAU6S grumpy!! LOL!!!
You went ALL THE WAY TO TANNER in a 22'!?!?!?!? :worship:
Looking for NEW.
LMK whatcha got, I have cash, nothing to trade.
I've seen that once for a while now ....
9 mile bank!! That's a nice and easy ride :rockin:
Im really curious to know experiences owners have had w/ these boats: Definace Admiral, specifically.
At one point, maybe still am, I considered...
I LOVE rebuilds!! SUBSCRIBED!!
Yup, I had my glass-guys drill holes every 2 ft to determine viability of the stringers. Ensure the foundation is good before you move fwd.
Did you upgrade the brakes too?
A Cummins in a Farallon = large engine box. A FLUSH deck is more important to some, myself included.
Was the 310 Factory spec or a re power you did after the fact?? Sorry for all the queations..VERY intrigued your setup!!:-)
380? What type of performance number do you get on that thing???
28 W/A??? Engine?? More pics!!! More!!
What were the costs and lead times you experienced??
Very nice!! 2600 W/A??
100 miles in 3 hrs ... wow you guys were MOVING!!! :_shopping:_shopping:_shopping:_shopping
Howd you get out there - looks like your own private boat?
Did you go out there on your Parker 2520? What's your boats fuel capacity, burn etc.? I'm curious ....
Loved the video!!!! Whered you fish???
34 Carolina to Cortez .... how often do you make that run? What power is do you have in that sled?
Those are exactly the figures I'm expecting 8-)
If you can go diesel ... my not??? Currently in the process of a repower on my 27 Farallon ... Volvo D6 all the way here!!!
Believe me ... speed...
Not a fan of the Parkers .... that's why I went Farallon :git:
Good old 18' reef runner!! Had me one of those, so fun, great memories ....
How exactly does this work? Is cash in person an option? Do we need to pay taxes?
How is Harry's Marine? Kyle over there? Considering using him for some of my work ...
Right????? I was thinking the same thing then thought I was going crazy! o_O
At the very least, pay for a survey of both boat and engine by a qualified individual.
I'm REALLY hungry all of a sudden!!! LOL!!!
Love me some YFT!!!
I renew my previous offer $350 cash picked up.
Sell it to me that way you dont have to bump it every other day :lux:
Absolutely LOVE the W/A models!!!
That's what buddy boating is all about!!!
Who rebuilt them and how many hrs did the blocks have prior to rebuilding?
You cant just post 1 pic!!! What a tease!!! Mpre more more!!!! :-)
That's what I'm talking about!!!!!
A Cummins RECON will put you back about the same for a 5.9 370 HP.
Exactly ... new tanks and we gotta go 1.50" shaft. Are you sticking w the Yanmar to avoid messing w the shaft size??
Looking at the Cummins 5.9 RECON or 6.7 NEW for mine. I want to stick w Cummins or Volvo, just personal preference. I hear Yanmars are solid...
Is that a straight shaft. V drive, i/o?? Why Yanmar and not Cummins, Volvox etc.??
Let's see the 27!!!!
Can you give more detail on the engines. They were brand new 2017 models installed last year and have 30 hrs on them? Compression checks done on...
If the engines are what they seem to be, $20K for the pair is a deal! The boat and trailer are just an added bonus!!

AnnaMarie ... LOVE the walkaround models!!! You've since sold it??
Come on ppl ... where are all those bad ass Farallons!?!?!?? :puff:
I'm a diesel guy so gas isnt even an option for me :D
The problem I have w/ Cummins and 2 fold:
1) Can't really find a LOCAL & repuutable re-power option (SBMAR is about ~3 hrs north of us OC guys)...
Wow talk about mad skillz!!! :D
I'm definitely keeping your contact!!! :D
Maybe YOU should do my gel coating!!! Is this something you do as a hobby, on the side, etc??
Tony does good work, no doubt. Not sure I want a Cummins over a Volvo D6 ... volvos are so much more 'advanced' ...
In the middle of are-power of mine now. :-) Cummins vs Volvo D6 .... that's the $1M question for me.
It's got a single Yamaha 225. Was the boat offered w twin outboards?
I'm going w that being a typo ... it's got to be an alum trailer??. :confused:
This is what you call a wiring job!!! Very nice!!!!
There must be other Farallons out there!! Dont be shy boys/girls!!! :-):-)
