interpreting the transom serial number

I was in Little Washington, NC this week to help a friend bring back a Marine Trader to Pawley's Island. He said he couldn't afford a Grand Banks. While at McCotter's Boat Yard, I saw a Grand Banks with the following stamped on the transom "GNDC03830873". Am I correct in reading this to be...

NavLights

I bought mine in 2004 through Classic Marine, a company in the UK. Price was very reasonable and delivery was quick and without incident. I just recently bought a masthead light and stern light, although I have not installed these two yet. http://www.ClassicMarine.co.UK I have no affiliation with th...

window replacement or repair

If you decide to go aluminum, talk with Chuck at Waterway Systems is Sarasota, Fla. He can custom make your windows with the same angles, sliders, screens, etc., for the original look. If you need to replace the front windows, he can make them look the same, as well, with the center window hinged at...

New mast

Thank you. I am pretty proud of the final product. I t sounds hokey when you tell someone that the mast is a flagpole, but it really looks good. Suppliers: Flagpoles, Etc., Inc. Classic Boat Supplies (mast Ring) Erich's Fine Woodworking or Berlin G. Myers Lumber Co. (sapelle) Coastal Night Lights (s...

changing size of project photos

I have windows 10, but I didn't get a re-size option with the right click. Just ways to fix red eye, etc. With my wife's help, I finally went into Windows Paint, re-sized them there. Saved them and moved to the new folder. Explaining it makes it sound simpler than actually doing it. My older version...

New mast

My mast was rotted in several places. I had repaired part before, but I was worried about the strength with so many repairs. The mast was a single piece of wood, turned or shaped. The knob at the top was turned. The spreader arms were two pieces, attached to the mast with bronze strips. I wanted to ...

changing size of project photos

Thanks for the advice. I will play around with it and hopefully get some photos posted.

It was easy with older versions of Windows, but they went and improved everything.

changing size of project photos

I have tried to upload some photos, but can't because they are too large.
How can I reduce them?

mast

I used a powder coated aluminum flag pole. I found it on-line from Flagpoles Etc, INC. It is tapered and was an almost perfect match size-wise to the wooden mast on my 1972. I cut off the top and bottom to get a close match the length and taper. I cut the old wooden mast about six inches below the t...

Camera to view following boats

Go on Amazon and enter TFT back up cameras. There are several different packages. I bought one with a 7"screen monitor hard wired for two cameras, although I only bought one camera. I don't see where they offer the same package that I bought a few years ago, but they have a Camacho wireless set...

camera to view following boats

Jim, I found a unit made for trucks. It is made by TFT and has a 7"color monitor (accepts two cameras), the camera and wiring. You can go wireless, but I hard wired mine. I installed the monitor on the wire chase cover at the lower helm and the camera on the under lip of the fly-bridge deck at ...
