Re: Open or Closed Cell Foam in c.1979 Boat

Another factor may be the "perm rating" or the amount of moisture that gets through or into the material. I have been told Boston Whaler foam is and always has been closed cell which should have a very high "perm rating" but the foam still holds water like a sponge if subjected t...

Re: Request appraisal for 1969 Sakonnet

I sold one with a similar description for $7,800 with the primary difference a complete new paint job and rub rail. One could argue I hurt the value with the paint vs. original gel coat.

I have a free aluminum transom riser taken off a 1963 13 foot Whaler. Seems very heavy duty yet light for its strength. Has a few motor holes in it from prior installation. Text at 262 366-2242 if interested. MUST PAY SHIPPING AFTER YOU GET IT. Approx 15 1/2" wide, total 12" high.

Re: 2008 Montauk 170 Transom Support Using "transom saver device"

Perhaps the recomendation for an extra motor support is not because the transom is too weak or the motor hydraulic ram is too weak but everyone is covering their you-know-what if their own product fails. It's the world we live in. I have been trailering outboards without the "belt and suspender...
