Re: Discolored teak trim

Is that trim original? At least on my 69 32 woodie, the trim is fastened from the inside, and their are no bungs on the outside. Someone might have re done your trim and used fasteners that “bleed”. If so, this will be a re occurring problem unless you go to a different fastener such as silicon bron...

Re: 32' Woodie Aft Cabin Water/Rot issues and repair

Alan, Does your boat have the Grand Banks beige and white two tone color scheme? Were thinking on doing that to Ruby Tuesday. I already did the forward cabin top and will do the non skid on the fly bridge in that color also. Looks like you have it on the bulwarks. Did you do the inside of the bulwar...

Re: 32' Woodie Aft Cabin Water/Rot issues and repair

I’m thinking about recessing a drain into the cabin top right at the end of the ledger on the starboard side, then using a copper pipe downspout leading into that deck drain. On the port side, there isn’t much clearance in that area, because of the door and the cut out for the fly bridge ladder. May...

Re: Stern Tube & Stuffing Box Maintenance

Why not just drill a hole thru the rudder. That’s what we did, and then used a round set of zincs to cover the hole?

Re: 32' Woodie Aft Cabin Water/Rot issues and repair

We have the same repair to do on Ruby Tuesday. It is next on my list. I am going to design some drains or recessed scuppers to catch the water that runs off the edge of the flybridge ledgers, and pipe it down to the deck drain, as this is a major cause of rot and deterioration. I want to get all fre...

Re: bronze rub rail removal

It’s probably coming from under the rub rail, due to leaks in the teak deck. As the sub deck deteriorates, it will ooze out “brown water” which is a tel tale sign of rot underneath. I seriously doubt if it is the bronze. Besides bad caulking in the decks, a major cause of teak deck leaks in this are...

Topcoat is good stuff. We distributed and sold hundreds of gallons before retiring from that.

Found rot in cabin top

What looked like some minor rot on front edge of forward cabin top actually was much worse than originally thought. Rot never sleeps.[attachment=0]33DCF4FD-6B4D-4FFD-B736-A84C2025D802.jpeg[/attachment]1

Re: Transmission cable? or Bigger Problem!

After you disconnect the cable mark where the leaver detects are so after you hook back up you can see if your helm control is providing proper throw to engage up to those marks.

Re: GB32 replace cutlass bearings

I don’t understand the reasoning for leaving in the old center bearing, and using it with a new shaft. I guess they didn’t pull the stern tube to access it. How could they even tell if it wasn't worn, if they didn’t access it? To do this job properly, and replace all three bearings, you have to pull...
