1978 Gulfstar 44 MC

We are newbies to big boats, bought a 1978 Gulfstar 44MC Perkins Nats. 6.354 . I have worked on the boat for about 8 months, I think I can be a resource for you. Private msg. Me when you have time and can help. We GulfStar guys need to stick together.

ND, Good to see you're back on the water. Nice recovery!!
 
Thanks. It took a while, but have a home now.
 
We have a mk 11 43 ft and like it a lot, the Perkins 6.354 engines are reliable and economic at normal cruising.

We have a 1974 GS 43 which has Perkins 6.354 engines, she is well layer out and in good condition for her age. With upper and lower nav stations and an engine room I can almost stand up straight in she is not too bad to work on, also tons of room for spares etc.
 
We have a 1987 44 Mark II with the 3208TA Cats. We’ve owned her since 2015 and she’s been a great boat. Our most expensive repair was replacing the heat exchanger on the genie. We’ve updated the electronics, added an Electroscan waste disposal system and a new Magnum inverter.
We spend a lot of time on her but waiting on retirement to really give here more exercise.
If anyone has a wiring diagram for this vintage I would appreciate it.

I have the same boat but with 2 perkins 4236 engines runs great 1974 build how are you doing with your boat
 
Do you still have your 36? I was wondering about your picture with the rough dining table and curved booth. Is that in the forward cabin?
