New (to us) Californian LRC 34
Hi all, my wife and I are the happy owners of a 1981 Californian LRC 34 "Outer Marker" SN 3416781. She has twin Cat NA 3208s and a 5Kw genset. I must admit I have been lurking on this site for over a year and have found some great information - it actually introduced us to the Californians. We picked the boat up just over a year ago and she has required some restoration and repairs (some known at the time of purchase and some surprises). We got out a fair amount this past summer and put her through her paces. We purchased her from the original owner who kept her in Vancouver BC and finally Comox and they ranged as far north as Alaska in their voyages. We have her back in Vancouver - are there any other Californians around locally? I have the original owners manual which I can post if anyone is interested (although I think someone has posted one already?), I also have a Webasto heater manual pdf available and a few other original equipment manuals as well. I'll try to get a list together.
One of the "surprises" has been a water leak in the aft quarters of the salon ceiling. I have removed the headliner along the edges and am trying to remove the exterior soffet wood - does anyone one have experience with this? The triangular exterior trim piece under the soffet does not come off after the screws have been removed - it seems like it has been glued in place
- any information would be appreciated.
