Does anyone have any details on the show at Sandpoint July 10-12? I have not been able to access the Inland Empire Chapter website. How big a show is this? Where is it being held? Thanks Dean

That must have been a common "improvement" to old boats in the sixties. Woodro you are fortunate to have the wheel and throttle mechanism to return your boat to original.

Is there much of a chance that a 5 gauge would have been put in a 24' runabout built in the later part of the 1929 model year? Hull card shows May inspection.

Early Runabout Gauge Panel

Could someone tell me what year the triple cockpits went from a 3 gauge panel to a 5 gauge panel? I am specifically interested in the 24 footers if there was a difference. Thanks Dean

Try www.mortec.com The site tells you where to look on the engine for various numbers and then has tables that tell you casting dates etc. I think it also lists heads. Good Luck.

Exhaust hose or copper pipe

I have been following with interest the post on "Source for 2 3/4" x 0.50 Copper". Beyond historical accuracy is there any advantage going with copper pipe instead of exhaust hose.
