Plumsal,
Thanks for that photo. I really appreciate it I guess 135 is the number. Kind of a strange HP, but I'll let him know.

Question 1995 Trophy 1802 max HP???

A friend just purchased a 1995 Bayliner Trophy 1802 W/A cabin boat. It's a surprisingly nice little boat. I'm not a Bayliner fan, but it's pretty cool what they fit this into an 18 footer. Here is...

That is an interesting idea. I've seen some nice seadeck jobs, but I've never walked on one, that I can remember at least.

That is what I have seen and experienced over the years, but maybe someone else has "cracked the code." I'd like to hear what others have to say.

I agree completely. I never understood the craze to use epoxy over traditional fiberglass. It's strong, but it brings a host of issues like mine. I guess people doing internet research want "the...

Thanks for the replies. I really don't see any other way to do this. I probably won't have to grind much, because I can probably pop most of it off with a putty knife, since it's already releasing...

It's funny, because I skimmed this post and thought, "That looks a lot like Capt Mike's electrical system." Then I went back and saw that it was. Very nice!

Baystar is a nice system. I wouldn't consider it "cheap," even though it costs a little less than the bigger Seastar.

That being said, for a boat with a 115 HP engine, my choice is always the...
