Re: Through Hull tubes a new technique

I would be interested in seeing your project photos. I will be addressing my brass at some point.

Re: Identify Fuel Tank Manufacturer from Image

I think red plastic is too ugly to pay $400 or $700.

I am sticking with my two ugly red tanks.

Re: 1971 Menemsha windshield seal

This is what you get when you trade a modern boat for an antique. I see lots of pics of Menemsha's with changes to them because of parts that just aren't out there.

Still looking.

1971 Menemsha windshield seal

I have been searching the planet for the rubber or vinyl windshield seal that goes between the glass and aluminum frame of my 1971 Menemsha. I have requested samples from STEELE RUBBER Products. A 1-1/2-inch sample that stayed in place when I tested it fooled me, and I ordered 12-feet of unsuitable ...

Re: Winter Boat-dreaming About a New Boston Whaler

I noticed a Cruise ship television commercial the other day. The ship looked to have 12 stories of stacked compartments and was a mile long, only a 1/4 mile wide. My comment to my wife: "Why the heck would you want to be stuck in a crowd on that thing?" I suppose my preference for solitude...

Re: Keeping Dashboard Panel and Gauges Watertight

I just reread this discussion and a couple of thoughts popped into my head. 1) Water would rarely splash this area for the average boater, but sealing the top edge and down the sides a bit would probably be effective. 2) Reading JimH's suggestion of an o-ring lead me to think that a rubber strip gas...
