Re: Repower help

Actually $9500 for 39HP doesn't sound so bad.. I'd have guessed closer to $15K.

Re: is this a Hurley 27'? please help

Even a 'custom' H27 would be unlikely to significantly change underwater profile beyond perhaps a rudder.

Re: Tinted 1/2" Acrylic Companionway Sections

Some do hinged doors, others do drop boards.. kinda up to you what you want. you can build either in rail/stile style. Pay close attention to angles, obviously.

I highly recommend 'lift-off'...

Re: Repower help

Kubota-based Beta Marine engines have a very good reputation, IIRC they are also pretty good at providing same-footprint mounts for more direct replacement with other popular drives.

Re: Tinted 1/2" Acrylic Companionway Sections

Any plastics/acrylic supplier can usually cut and shape pieces for you for a nominal fee.. esp if you have templates.

It's also not difficult to cut them yourself but you need a very fine tablesaw...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.
