    Hi, I am likely going to re-power my old Coastal 27 with new gas engine this spring....looking at Michigan Motrz and Performance Pro Tech for an (almost) complete drop-in motor...any thoughts ?

    What did you do to purchase the engine for your new build ? Thanks for any insight you can share.

      Mine is getting a Mercury 380 HP 8.2 liter, brand new engine. For a repower id be looking at a multi port injected engine, however something a generation back that doesn't have cat's like the latest and greatest. What HP do you want? Mercury remannd engines are one good cost effective option too.

    There is a 1977 44 for sale right now for reference worth looking at for comparison. These boats are far and few between and my next big investment is windows. If it's not to much to ask I'd love to check yours out when the windows are done if it's not to much to ask.

    I am curious at what you were able to insure your 44' Stanley for. I just re powered my 44' Stanley with a new QSM11 and was surveyed for $85,000. It's difficult to find comps.

      I’m covered for $75000 but I want to go higher. I I am in the process of putting in new Bomon Windows and completely dead the house over, at a cost of about 18,000 so now I feel I’m a little under insured. Are used ocean marine out of Rhode Island they’re great

    Hi Travis, I recently acquired BHH36019C090 And was wondering if you know if the coring goes to the bottom of the wet keel.We found an 8 inch crack about 2 inches up from the bottom just forward of the cutlass and I'm trying to get an idea of what to expect when we go to repair it.Thanks,

    Jerry, do you know the owner of the apparition 2, I am putting Volvo 122 into a 38 yb and could use some info on engine heavy engine placement for that boat. I know he had an 892 which is a little heavier than the 122 but I’d like to kick it around if he’s willing to talk about it. Thanks Larry

    Old mud,
    What would be the best jig saw blade to use to cut a tuna door in my boat, so I don’t chip any gel coat?

      Hi Matt, get a carbide fine blade. Tape where you want it and lay it out in the middle of the tape. Use some lube like Kerosene or light oil for lube and take it slow.

    Curious if you found any more pictures of your skiff? I'm in the Duxbury area and may be interested in a little bay boat if you're going to list yours. Thanks

      Unfortunately all the pictures I had of it were lost when my computer shit the bed. I haven't unwrapped it yet, but will take some pictures when I do and send them your way.
