Older GB instruments and boom capacity
I have a couple of questions, the first is - where can I find instrument gauges for older Grand Banks ? We have a 1972 GB50 FDMY and I'd like to replace a couple of the non-functioning instruments (tachometer w/hour meter, voltage meter, temp gauge etc.). Any thoughts or guidance ?
The second question deals with the mast boom that came with the GB50, does anyone know the capacity of the boom (lifting weight) ? I did notice in the brochure for the GB50 what looks to be a Boston Whaler with an outboard on the top deck, it could be a 13 footer. I'm think the Boston Whaler is just over 1000 lbs. all up. I ask as we purchased a 13' Rendova with a 40 Yamaha (vintage 2000 for both) and would like to use the boom to lift that to the top deck.
Any info or suggestions/advice is appreciated.
