Re: 1984 F32 pulpit

Bumping my post to see if anyone has or knows of a derelict Hoyt F-32 that may have the bow pulpit available. Mine had damage when I purchased her and I'd rather get one that does not have repairs before having mine repaired.

Re: Fuel fill idea

The siphon will cease at the point of the larger diameter of the filler neck, once air gets to the stream the negative pressure causing the draw will cease. I like where you are going with this idea though.

Re: Cutlass Bearing

Personally, I would not gamble by waiting until next haul out if you are already seeing the rubber working it's way out of the bearing housing. The bearing assembly itself is a single piece consisting of the outer housing, often bronze, and the bearing itself which is a special hard rubber; they sho...
