Re: Front berth portholes, Source for replacement window plastic

Tuggle,
I'll be going down to the boat/dock tomorrow and will measure the porthole's dimensions. Beckson's site looks very promising (as far as listed 'glass' sizes). Don't know what the cost will be yet (swallow hard, cuz it's for a boat!). :?

Front berth portholes, Source for replacement window plastic

All,
Both portholes in front berth in our '88 FB sedan are suffering from age. The raised edges of the "glass" are cracked and the hold down clamps (1 of 2 on each of the portholes) no longer have an edge to grip/tighten. Does anyone know of a source for replacement?

Thx!

Re: which prop is better

I switched to a 4 blade set in the spring of '19. Felt that there was significant improvement in performance and gas usage. I have a floscan system which gives me an accurate accounting of gas usage.

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

Sometimes it becomes unfathomable as to the reasoning offered by marinas as to the logic of charging exorbitant prices for non-ethanol gas. I once asked the previous marina operator as to why the high price? Three reasons: 1. They have a short season (not yearlong) to sell, 2. They really didn't wan...

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

The price difference is THE reason I would self fuel our boat. Marinas notoriously overpriced their non-ethanol fuel. Case in point here in Cincinnati area the cost of non-ethanol gas was 3.65/gal up to 4.25/gal. A local gas company (Casey's) charged 2.89/gal for non-ethanol guel. So you're talking ...

Re: blower vent hose

Just a thought... (yeah,I know, something I shouldn't do.. :D ) An aluminum dryer vent hose (both in 3" and 4" sizes) is available. Being flexible by nature, would these not work as well as the plastic ones, AND last much longer? Pliable enough to be closed up around the blower's ends usin...

Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

Afternoon Ed, Welcome to the forum.... :D Couple of things... - it was mentioned that a BigM can be a little problematic in a crosswind, that's true no matter where you are. I boat on the Ohio River southwest of Cincinnati, Oh. Our boats are much lighter than a glass boat which is fantastic when it ...

What has been your process for cleaning boat bottom?

All, There's a thread that piqued my interest in creating this thread ("Bare Bottom"). In one of the last posted threads FastJeff detailed how he had left his (previous) boat sit for some time and he found it necessary to anchor in shallow water and spend some time (hour + ?) scraping the ...
