Re: Freezer Replacement - How Do I Get It Out?

Dave,
Concur with Berger, the front center window removed will give you the space you need to remove the old freezer and install the Vitrifrigo.
I have the 2 drawer Vitrifrigo unit and I could not be happier.

Re: 42 GB Classic - Fresh Water Tank removal

Hi Are the tanks forward or aft in the lazarette? There were two configurations, some boats had the tanks forward in the laz without a deck fill. Others had the tanks aft and were fitted with a deck fill. Either way the tanks will come out with some disassembly. I assume you need to remove the tanks...

Re: FL-120 - Keep running after STOP button pressed

Roger, If I remember correctly, it was some time ago, The rack moves a considerable amount in order to stop the engine. I disconnected the linkage and moved the lever by hand until the engine stopped, when I saw how much travel was required I was able to reattach the linkage and make it work. Please...

Re: FL-120 - Keep running after STOP button pressed

Roger, Take the side cover off the injector pump, I would first order a gasket from Brian at American Diesel but the gaskets is pretty hardy so you might be able to reuse the existing gasket. Activate the stop solenoid and watch the internal mechanism move aft to stop the fuel. If the injector pump ...

Lyle,

Re: Some pictures from our deck and hand rail rework.

Andy, I chose cedar T&G, painted white by the way, because of the thickness, a true 1/4 inch, and the width of the planks. I had initially sprayed the cedar in my garage before installation. After it was up my wife decided it was too glossy so I rolled a coat of satin finish over the glossy whit...

Re: Some pictures from our deck and hand rail rework.

Andy, If you are going to replace the fabric headliner with wood I would be happy to share my experience doing that project. I just replaced my headliner with T and G cedar planking. Added 12 Imtra lights and Teak battens every 27 inches. Relatively easy project and a big improvement over the old fa...

Just to add on, I have been unable to get anyone from Bergen on the phone for sometime now. I wanted to get new floor mats and some sweaters with the GB logo and Bobbi, the owner, has just fallen off the face of the earth. I will call them again tomorrow and see if they will answer my calls. J.J.Jones

The ones available from Grand Banks are smaller than the originals so the only option is an exact replacement if there are any available. I have attached a photo. Thanks for any information or any sources to check o...
