Re: APPRAISAL 1973 19 OUTRAGE

Beautiful boat! I don’t think Phil is far off for your 19 since it’s such a nice restoration.

Re: Labor Day Weekend Launch Ramp Stories

Saturday and Sunday afternoon launches at public Lake Rabun, Georgia, ramps were very pleasant and not crowded. Plenty of room and time allowed for mutual admiration of boats and polite small talk in passing. The marina required masks inside and compliance was 100%. Masks not required while launchin...

Re: Cole Hersee Switches

[The knob on the M476 switch I bought from DEFENDER is] chrome plated brass--thankfully I re-read the [initial article that began this topic]. I now agree the M532 switch will provide the same functionality [as the M476 switch] for two circuits. I wanted to share [information about the M476 switch s...

Re: SAKONNET 16 Wiring for Navigation Lighting

The spot [illustrated above] is where the wiring to the combined sidelight lamp at the bow is laid inside the hull and is connected to a two-pole terminal block. The terminal block took power from surface wiring and connected the stern light. You want something watertight there. At this boat age mos...

Re: Cole Hersee Switches

[The Littlefuse] website is a mess. Here’s a link to the [M476] switch for sale at Defender.com: https://www.defender.com/product.jsp?id=614376 I found [the M476 switch] to be the perfect switch for a simple two-circuit lamp setup where the options are “all-around” ON or "all-round and [sidelig...

1972 COHASSET Navigation Lamp Replacement

I will describe my navigation lamp replacement project on my 1972 COHASSET II 16 classic. This job was 90-percent research and planning and 10-percent effort. The [original] wiring [for the combined sidelight lamp at the bow] was laid in the [Unibond hull interior foam]. [My new wiring would require...

1972 COHASSET Cooler

I have an Engel 35 (with padded seat) and an Engel 50 (with teak sticker pad on top). Either one will work in front of the console. I reverse the 35 so the hinge is forward and the lid opens away from the console. I had the 35 in front (strapped in) and the 50 in stern (unsecured) for a gentle lake ...

Re: Cole Hersee Switches

Jim--have you seen the M-476 Littelfuse Cole-Hersee switch? It is ideal for the simplified half-pull for only all-round and full pull for all navigation lamps.The odd lettering scheme appears to be easily remembered if considering an automotive tie-in. R for rear/parking, H for headlight, B for batt...

Re: Recall Your First Time In a Boston Whaler

I am a little surprised this post has not gotten more activity. I have so many immensely distinct memories related to Whalers that I can't let this go without reply. All of my boating knowledge can be attributed to this website. My brother in-law has told me about being alongside his two brothers lo...

Re: 170 Montauk Cover

Clay I have been looking around for covers this weekend for my 1972 Cohasset II and Phil T pointed me to Carver on the other forum. There is a sale through tomorrow at a website called Bald Mike's. Looks like he places the order direct to Carver so the discount must just be where he is reducing his ...

Roanoke Virginia Mechanic Referral

Hello. I am looking for a referral for light mechanic work in the Roanoke, Virginia area to tune-up a 1989 Evinrude 88 SPL. Typical to the model, the 88 SPL runs great but without frequent use we are having a problem with cold starts. The little fuel primer (not a choke) needs testing and a good run...
