Re: 24ft Almar F/S

I've always wondered if you get thumped in rough seas being that far forward?

Re: 23’ Pacific

I don't see any significant damage to the hull, not sure about motor. The port side does not look dented, and knowing the construction of these boats, hard to imagine how it could get dented. The water in the hull looks like it is due to being tilted forward on the trailer, since there is no water i...

Re: Electrolysis on Pacific Skiff 22 DV

Others have reported similar problems with corrosion in areas where the hull was in prolonged contact with trailer bunks, which often are made of pressure treated lumber. Not sure if this would apply to your situation. Doesn't seem likey that the bilge drain plug would be related. Can you post pictu...

Re: help on a fix Gas tank?

Wow, replacing a tank sounds like a huge deal to me!! Do you need to cut a 9 foot hole in the deck? If so does that mean removing the seat and center console to get to the deck? Sounds very expensive. I am interested in any insights as to how and why this happened. Salt water getting in through the ...

Re: Newbie Looking for a Pacific 23 HT

I would keep looking on this forum, craigslist, and any other listings and be ready to pounce when one comes up for sale because they are in demand and sell fast. There are more of them on the west coast and I understand that it is not too difficult to have one shipped east. The ride would be compar...

Re: Crozier Craft For Sale on YW - WA

It does sort of look like it sits low but maybe an optical illusion created by the line of the rub rails. Nice boat!!

Re: Is this fixable and what should it cost

Am I missing something here? The boats are drifting together at low speed to raft up and you bump the Lowes and it gets that kind of damage? That's crazy. I've never checked one of them up close. Are they really that flimsy?

trim

I have a pacific v2025 with a 130 hp honda. Recently I have the feeling that my trim hydraulics are 'soft' so to speak. When running I normally start out with with the trim set in a neutral position. There is a tendency for the trim to drift down as I use the boat. At times this has resulted in the ...

No its like a thin film of slightly damp fine brown beach sand not salt. I have never seen or heard any water sloshing around or pooling in there, and don't think I have the drain valves you are describing, just the scuppers opening to the main deck. I'll post a picture if / when it ever happens aga...

Threads like this make me question the idea that aluminum is "easier to maintain" than NON ALLOY. More durable yes, but as easy to keep looking like new I'm not so sure. I think Id rather strip and wax a hull that mess with all that acid BS
