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.

Re: Topside paint

For future reference for others, it only takes about 3 gallons from the water line and up, hull and cabin.

Re: Removing flying bridge teak toe rails

I would try the multi tool/Fein tool/oscillating tool/whatever you want to call it. Mine came with a blunt smooth scraping tool that would probably do the trick. If you don't have one in your box yet you need to get one. I am very very happy with my Menards model.

Re: Classic 42 chairs

PM me on what you are thinking you want for them. I'm blowing through the cash reserves on the rebuild but we sure would like some additional seating.

Pics have to be small to upload. I downloaded GIMP to export and reduce the the size.

Re: Rotted rub rail

It was by the vents, the scupper holes, everywhere. One section about 1 1/2 feet long was missing. Found it all when I finally got the wrap off. The PO beat the crap out of the rail. He had it full of putty in about 10 places. I spoke with one of the PO slip mates, they were slipped on the river and...

Re: Rotted rub rail

Yes, I am going to scarf in sections. The worst is in the straighter portions aft. I don't want to try and steam bend. The wood boat people have suggest yellow cedar and locust as possible good wood choices.

Rotted rub rail

Going to have to replace sections of the rub rail on my 1972 42 woodie. There is a lot of rot and previous epoxy putty patches. Suggestions on wood and technique?

Re: New problem for me - fuel tanks

Do you really need 400 gallons? My thought is much smaller plastic tanks and create new storage base.

Re: copper tube

Ok,yes, looks like the tube is for inside condensation drain and it is starboard and port. So the channel for the side Windows and the channel for the back window are one above the other. And then hook up to this tune that comes out the side? How is that routing done? Does one track drain to the oth...
