Should be a fun boat. If you won't have covered moorage and if it still has the original 9' long wood frame aft cabin windows, set some money aside to replace them with aluminum frame windows....

No rating plate, but I lifted my 11' Livingston dinghy and several mopeds aboard with it many times. I was more concerned about the nylon blocks and ropes than the mast. The owners manual should be...

With no one left to ask, I've always assumed it was since it connects the center of the cabin top to the floor structure.

Deck Sagging has always been a problem in these boats as they age. Main...

Based on your picture, the valving appears to be setup for a standard 4 tank Californian LRC aft cabin boat.

That looks pretty good Al. I've got to do mine too. Port side, salon floor is drooping a bit. Think I'll start out with your design concept and adapt it to my setup. Hope you didn't patent it. ...

Maybe just shop around for the availability of shaft material to make sure they have enough in stock to cut the shafts for you. The length is pretty critical, so you want it right for your boat.

Good question, but I think it was the 38'. The 42's, in the 70's at least, had a seam 4' ahead of the transom that ran from side to side. Which looks like they used a two piece hull mold to make a...

I would think that the 6BT Cummins would be a good step up from the 6-354T's which were mostly rated at 185 hp in the 42's. I forget, but seems like the 3208 wasn't offered until a little later. ...

I'll fourth or fifth those who said to not let those "mechanics" back on your boat. Throwing the jenny away, because they can't figure out how to start/repair it is ludicrous.
