Re: I/O to outboard

That's a Boat Leveler pump. I'm pretty sure Bennett's have always use the black lexan cover.

Re: 1981 Grady White 240 Offshore - Transom Replacement

All of the Gradys I have owned had one length of PVC that ran from the forward bilge to the aft bilge with no openings into the fuel tank compartments. The tank compartment then had a separate drain to the aft bilge that was plugged with a standard rubber bilge plug. That plug remained in place all ...

Re: 1981 Grady White 240 Offshore - Transom Replacement

I think he means he can't get the core pieces in in one piece because the remaining sections of the cap and liner prevent it. If you were to cut the last few inches of the cap off you could slide your core in from the top. That being said, if you run the core all the way up without sectioning in you...

Re: 1981 Grady White 240 Offshore - Transom Replacement

I had planned to convert the forward tank compartment on my old 227 Seafarer to storage as well. It was going to be trailer kept so draining to the bilge was fine with me. I can see the reservation with a moored boat though. What you could do is build a gutter system around the opening and then rout...

Re: 1981 Grady White 240 Offshore - Transom Replacement

Not yet. What is the best location to inspect them. Pull the floor panels that are over the tanks. Pull the floor supports. Pull the tanks. Check the areas where the floor supports screwed into the the stringers. Check the areas where the bulkheads intersect the stringers. There's no glass between ...

Re: 1981 Grady White 240 Offshore - Transom Replacement

I would push your cut line about 2" closer to the center of the hatch to keep it away from the corners of the recess. For cutting across the motor well, go with the yellow line. Another thing to think about... Even it you raise the sides to be even with the center section, that is still a VERY ...

Re: 1981 Grady White 240 Offshore - Transom Replacement

Are you planning to raise that little aft section of the floor so it's the same height as the main floor? If not, go with the green line. If so, red but keep it tight to the dip. Looks like you'll have enough of the lip around the hatch left to do your grinding and glassing w/out getting into the ha...

Re: 1989 grady 19' tournament stringer rebuild

Interesting. The dump down here charges by weight.

I could dump mine for free...but I would have to cut it into small enough pieces to get it in garbage cans and then dump it in the household trash bins. No thanks! :)

Not necessarily. Go talk to them first. I took an old 19' Thunderbird to the landfill down here in Calvert Co. w/out having to cut it up at all. Backed in, pushed it off the trailer, paid my fee and drove out.

Re: Boat Fell off trailer. Need to repair the side

In your first picture it almost looks to me like (going top down) you have gelcoat, raw glass and then more gelcoat before transitioning to the hull bottom. If that's the case, you probably didn't get into structural glass at all and probably just ground away a bit of mat. The back corner looks a bi...
