  1. 1978 Convertible Really Only Worth $40K?

    I hope this post isn't out of place. The description says to put "other" stuff here, so here I go. My dad is too old to keep boating, and I have no interest in it. He is going to have to get rid of his 1978 convertible. It's in good mechanical shape. It needs sprucing up. It has a tuna tower....

  5. Do stablizers cause/create air around props in a following sea.

  6. Well That Makes It Easy

    Hadn't noticed it before. Probably it's just me. It's nice to see that I, for sure, have the right oil. Wonder why the Series 53s aren't on there?

  9. Fiberglass hull shaving for weight reduction?

    I seem to remember an article many years ago (20) about someone who would shave older Hatteras hulls (and other hulls I am guessing) in order to reduce weight because of their overbuilding. The thickness of the hulls being far thicker/heavier than hulls today? It may have been an article in...

    Just got back from a great cruise, once I was back in the slip and hocking up I heard the starboard blower going strong. I just happen to brush by the vent and felt no air blowing out.

  16. Aluminum window frame alloy

    Is it known what alloy was used to make the salon window frames? Doing some repair and modification and knowing the alloy/which wire to use would be immensely helpful. I'm assuming a 5xxx alloy but I have no test material to play with. Only the actual frames so it's right the first time or...
