Re: Generator Sound Shield for sale

I'm just curious as to why you have this for sale? Old generator pulled and the shroud got left behind? Built a new one?

My PO installed two rings, one at the base of the flybridge railing right in front of the mast and the other in the center of the flybridge helm near the top. I attached a double pulley to t...

Re: New GB Owner

Congratulations. We are just over 1 year in on a 1972 42' which also needs a lot of TLC. Take your time, it will be a long process.

Re: Parting out 32 classic woody

Looks like this may be dead but I'll give it a shot also. I need rub rail. It's going on a 42 but I'm hoping it's the same.
