Re: 36 CL Prop Question

According to the owner's manual (available the resources/manuals section of the IAGBO site) the original props on my former (and greatly missed) GB 36CL #790, with twin 135 Lehmans and BW Velvet Drive transmissions were DIA 26" X PITCH 21" X 3 BLADE by Stone Marine, on 1.5" shafts; ho...

Re: Line cutter on drive shaft

I had spurs on my 36CL. I had one incident and they definitely worked.

Re: GB 36 Production

36-1135 is the last one, built Mach of 2001 as a 2002 model. Her name is Blue Star, nee Haven.

cardiackid0614, if you own her, congratulations. If you ever decide to sell her, let us know (Actually, let me know first :wink: ).

If it hasn't warped, it should dry but it may take a while. You may want to place some electric, rod-type dehumidifiers in strategic places and/or add heat to the engine space. Is the parquet on the "hull" or the fiberglass pan/deck? If it's the deck, you may be able to insulate or heat th...

I'm not entirely sure of the reason for the distinction is but I'm pretty sure it's an anchor windlass, not an anchor winch. ;-)

I'd be interested too. How does one go about ordering a pair?

Cut proud caulk using a one-sided razor blade. Bend it slightly to make it easier to hold on each side but don't try to bend it too much, they snap easily. Buy a box of them, they're inexpensive. I did the entire deck on a '36CL in a weekend. You'll end up with a garbage bag full of black rubber str...

Having missed my opportunity to acquire the last one, I'd love to find another of the last six produced; but I'm not sure any of them are in the East Coast.

Apologies for having veered off topic.

GB36 #1135 is NOT on the West Coast. She just changed hands here on the East Coast. I aught to know, I tried to buy her but she went for more than I was comfortable spending. Someone got a special boat. Twin 210 Cummins and a centerline queen aft cabin.

Vinegar is a good cleaner and disinfectant but it's acidic. I'd be hesitant to use it on finished interior wood. The oil soap will be gentler. Use vinegar to clean your water system, coffee maker and sink drains.

My personal preference is to get the Murphy's pre-mixed in a spray bottle.

Isn't your interior teak varnished? I would use Murohy's Oil Soap.

Perhaps a little shy of Bristol but the right equipment (for me) and nothing a little elbow grease and TLC couldn't remedy. I was on her quickly and I thought we were about to come to terms but someone else swooped in beyond my comfort level, so it wasn't meant to be. One thing I liked was fiberglas...
