Re: Stabicraft 759 SuperCab 2008

I have been on this boat. This is a really well outfitted beauty. I don't need another boat, I have my little Alumaweld, otherwise this would be mine. I bought a 23ft Cape Cruiser for retirement, and paid way more for a nice used one. We sold it because of health reasons for a lot more than this boa...

Re: Why is the windshield tilted that way

Parkers windshields have the normal front slope.
They also open outward from the bottom.
Very pleasant in warm weather.

Re: Need help from the gurus...

I don't see major dents in the pics, just some love bumps. The blue paint would probably come off with a chemical paint stripper but unless it is peeling I'd just give it a light sanding and repaint. The other boat is way better cosmetically and if that ranks pretty high with you then that might be...

I'm sorry to see your beautiful boat go. We never did get out for a cruise.
I hope you survived Irma OK.

I didn't know about that jumper wire from the motor to the hull. When I spoke to the guy at Alumaweld, he didn't mention that. I will call him back and ask him about the grounding wire. Thanks.

Re: More electrolysis

Hi Dave Great to see you have your issues sorted. Here in Oz most smaller boats don't actually have zinc's on the hull, that I have noticed. I did ask about this once and was told that the motor zinc's are enough for the hull also. just be careful as you can over zinc a boat also. I had originally ...

Yea! The zinks were my idea. I had been working with the people at Alumaweld, and they never said one word about putting zinks on the hull.

Re: More electrolysis

Hopefully everything is solved. The electrical system was gone over by the Yamaha mechanic who has serviced the boat since it was new. All OK. And , no. The hull did not have zinks on it before. I just put on two zinks on the hull. There were zinks on the motor, and I just ASSUMED that that was all ...

Re: More electrolysis

Well I finally had the holes welded and put two zinks on the hull. I haven't had time to take it out yet. Hopefully all the holes are filled. We just had a house built, so the next time I take her out, I will be taking her to the new house. We have a 3 car garage, so she will have her own spot inside.

Re: More electrolysis

goatram, the bilge pump is a Rule. Alumaweld has been no help at all. They sent me a short infomercial from Yamaha that had nothing to do with my problem when I asked if any other boats with Yamahas were having similar problems. They finally checked and told me the motor was installed at Alumaweld. ...

More electrolysis

I have a 16 ft Alumaweld. I keep it on a trailer. I use it mostly in salt water. I flush the motor and wash down the boat and trailer everytime I use it. Just recently I found a hole in the hull up by the bilge output. A few days later I noticed three more small holes in the hull just above the chin...

Re: Looking for aluminum boat need advise

You probably have a single 150 or maybe a 200 on your 2120. Try putting a Permatrim hydrofoil on your motor. It will help the slow speed wandering and it will help you plane at a lower speed. I had a 23 and it really helped maneuvering around the dock.
