I think the 12 cly version will fit quite nicely between the head and the gally, I just don't know where to put the fuel tank. Bladder tank on the coach roof maybe?

Looks really good! The application does look a bit "spikey", kind of remind me of that texturized wall paint in my parent's house.

Did you give it a good hose down and try a skid test?

I'd love to see pics of the deck on the oyster too. Did the dealer give you any tech info (friction coefficients and such)?

I've been looking at non-skid and Kiwi Grip caught my eye as not having any sort of aggregate in it. I love the idea of a rubberized paint but have not be able to find anyone that has actually used...

I recently noticed these as well. Yes they have good pricing but if the lack of responses are any indicator, it might be tough to find part for a repair. I found a used 18 horse for about 1/4 the...

I too hear you on the yard work thing, but it seems that this is the norm. It has taken me 3 months to get my boat moved!

update: it's not a 2gm20 but the older 2gm. It was new back in '95 and pulled from a 33fter to provide more power. So here's the new question(s):

I like the idea of clear vinyl coated stainless. Even if it doesn't stay water clear, you'll still be able to see most corrosion through the cover. Not to steal the thread but how much does spectra...

The T30 specs call for an aluminum boom with a 2.75x4.5" eliptical section. If I remember the roller boom is about 3.5" round. I'm betting the eliptical is stronger but I'd love to see some blue...

Good point on the screws, I'll be checking them when the mast comes down. I guess my main question was the integrity of this old boom. I'll keep the boom on the list of "to do" but not anywhere near...
