Chesapeake Area Dockage $25 !

$25 ! The Board of the Corinthian Yacht Club has just agreed to a special introductory dockage rate this year, for fellow members of our GB Boating Association. The base slip rate for all boats is just $25, (plus electric, based on individual needs.) That’s one of the lowest rates we’ve ever seen in...

Classic vs East Bay

I know from the boat shows that these two boat divisions are treated separately , like Ford vs Lincon.

Does anyone know if the boats were made at the same factory?

Exactly, a southern Florida boat kept in the water. 1991 boat, low hours that sat a lot. It was either in the Keys or up the west coast to Ft Myers area. I'm surprised since I believed that they were using the better plastic resins and using a barrier coat. My thoughts are that the bottom was not ta...

I bought an 89 in 1995. The boat was supposed to be barrier coated during construction. It had always been in New England waters and in the yard during the winters. It was blister free.<P>Now it stays in warm southern waters virtually 12 months a year. It promptly developed a severe blister problem...

East Bay help.....

Are there any East Bay owners here who can offer a hand?
Anyone have East Bay experience?

I am interested in a 10 year old boat with blisters and would like to know if this is very common.

Can the manufacturer tell me what resins/materials were used on this specific hull?

Thanks, Jim

1991 46' Classic

Just an awesome boat with many recent improvements and upgrades.

Freshwater history, and it shows!

Currently cruising the Great Loop, now doing the Gulf/Keys/Bahamas?

If interested, or you know someone who wants a great boat, please contact us for details.

Help with an EastBay purchase!

I'm hoping some Eastbay owners can help me with advice on buying a used Eastbay 49....Please! I've had a 46' Grand Banks Classic for 5 years (now for sale!!) and have decided to buy an Eastbay. I've cruised from Michigan to the Keys, so have some idea about these boats. It's hard to get rid of my Cl...

Can someone tell me the construction detail on these doors?

Is it a plywood core, then fiberglassed, then the teak decking on top?
How was the teak held down on these? (I'm not on the boat now but thought I didn't see the bungs on the door)

Thanks

A/C Pump

I want to get a backup A/C pump.

Old one is a P-100, 1/2 HP, 115V 2850 RPM by Magnetek - Century Electric.

I don't believe it's made anymore and wonder if anyone knows of a good replacement?

Also, with three A/C units, what is the expected GPH needed?

Thanks, Jim

Thanks Peggy for the good Head

I'm not yet finished, but making the plunge to change our plumbing has been made much easier by Peggys knowledge and experience. First, we first changed out the two seals in the Sealand Toilet....not too bad a job. Then we had a disaster finding that the brass or bronze "Y" fitting over ou...

Teak on Lazerette Door lifting

I have a few of the teak strips lifting on the hatch door. water getting under that drains a bit when open.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? Can I just screw them down?

Thanks

Jim
