Re: volvo Duo-prop, prop seized

You know there is a prop puller tool. Most yards have them. Or you could use a large gear/bearing puller.

Re: Volvo IPS Drives

The mercury also has some type of gps system that automatically maintains the boat position. It counteracts the effects of wind and current. I haven't seen the system operate just read about it....

Re: New pilot house boat!

If your going to head out to Patchogue you might as well check out steiger. I hear they have a new 21dv that looks nice. I'm sure prices are pretty comparable considering they are built in the same...

Re: Volvo KAMD 300

As I said in a different post I believe the problem with the alternator might be the result of having the saltwater cleanout strainer mounted right on top of it. When you open up the strainer the...

Re: 28 Albemarle- Single Diesel

I like that D6. I think they changed some things for the better. The biggest problem I find with the KAD 300 is the dummies putting the sea strainer right above the alternator.

RE: Had a boat surveyed, what would you do?

Maybe you got the 272 wrong, but in 1988 they made the 25 sailfish which did not have the sea v2 hull. Not a great riding boat compared to todays boats.

Re: 28 Albemarle- Single Diesel

I don't think they mate the outdrive to the D6 435hp. Their website only list the 350hp.

Re: 28 Albemarle- Single Diesel

The albe does rock alot at drift but the pay off is a boat that can stay with the big ones when it gets rough. I've only walked on the CC at shows . Very nice boat .

RE: Diesel w/ I/O

The boat only comes as an I/O or OB. The prototype was an I/O yanmar. Most of Steiger's boat come either i/o or ob. He's been doing it for a very long time and there are no issues I know of.

RE: Diesel w/ I/O

I've own my steiger 26 since 2003 with a single 300kad i/o. I believe for economy there is no better choice. I don't know how the 26 handles with the ob's but I did have a twin ob grady 23' and by...

RE: Contender moving to Georgia

I hear the labor cost in china is even better. Since it takes no skill to build their boat, might as well maximize their profit. I could be wrong but I haven't heard Grady was moving for cheaper...

RE: Whats the deal with Luhrs?

Luhrs is a fine boat. As far as the fish are concerned they all suck. We don't care about their opinion, so don't care about anyone elses.
