I have the same set, and like it very much. (Sorry, not for sale). However, when I did have some issues with it, and couldn't get anyone in Victoria to help me out, I called Stryker electronics in Port Hardy. They had the right parts on hand to repair it properly, and were great to deal with. They m...

Update.... according to their website, Montague Hrbr ( usually the most expensive ) is charging $14.00 CDN as of this summer. I imagine the rest have gone up as well.

It can vary slightly park to park, but I believe that $12.00 CDN would be about average....not sure about the rings.

Our 32 (801) has the same setup, which I believe to be original. It seems to work fine, however I do hear the vent trying to inhale a bit of water if we are emptying in any kind of a chop. I do think, however, that the pump would have to create quite a bit of vacuum in the tank to pull enough water ...

Just a quick observation regarding the curved seat at the dinette. We have a 1988 GB 32 and enjoy the boat very much. However, we have found that the curve in the seat makes for uncomfortable seating when relaxing, pushing your back too far forward on the seat, leaving very little support for your l...

These are actually good quality fittings, but the springs do get tired after fifteen or twenty years of service. I have had good luck replacing the old springs with new ones that I have found in the replacement pin kits for men's watch bands. You have to break the new watch band pin to get them out....

What a fun way to spend your summer afternoons...... brings back great memories of sailing an older wood Beetle Cat with good friends.
Perhaps the glass version will keep your butt a bit dryer than the woodies.
Enjoy!

This would appear to be a reprint of the February 08 article from the same folks. Good article, although I have to admit I was looking forward to something new.

I have used home heating oil ( which is # 1 or #2 Diesel here in the Northwest ) in our last boat for over 19 years. No fuss, No smoke. I checked with our heating oil supplier long ago, and he assured me that it is all the same stuff, with nothing extra added for use as Diesel fuel.

We have had our Glass 32-GB for just over a year, after down sizing from a 46' wood trawler. The one thing I would would have the surveyor double check, would be the deck fittings for the fuel and water tanks ( also for the aux tiller ), to make sure there has been no water penetrating the plywood s...

I have an inexpensive Ryobi I bought at Home Depot about three years ago, for under $100.00 , and it has been a very handy tool for the boat, and around the house. The built in light is ok for most things, but I tape a waterproof flashlight on to it when using it under water to check prop, zincs, et...
