Re: Rejoined after haitus

Welcome back! The website changed to a new server a while back. Since then I am having the exact same problem you are. I have been in contact w/ one of the administrators trying to figure this out. You aren’t alone. They are working on this.

I have noticed the increase in traffic also. There was a time I was very concerned for the future of The Buzz. I am feeling much more positive now. :)

Re: recommisioning the 46ft conny

I did a quick web search on the Pacer conversions. It seems there was a time period that Pacer used both the GM 427 block and the Ford 427, same HP @320. I had mentioned about changing the hoses which may be a little hard to come by as they are molded and rather unique to the Pacer engines. Probably...

Re: recommisioning the 46ft conny

I think you're making the right decision, with the boat being that far from home. Obviously the main thing is to get her seaworthy. I don't know that their crew is willing to take the time to slick seam all the bottom. At an hourly rate might that be a good chunk of change for just that. Slapping a ...

Yes, Steve is interesting for sure and is doing well. The DCFB Owens was sold and fixed up by a guy from Geneva. As far as I know it is still on Seneca lake.
My boat is a 28' Chris- Sedan Cruiser w/FB, "Wild Oats", acquired in 2008. I'd post a picture but, it won't let me. :x

Re: Bottom of 46ft conny

If you have plenty of help, I guess I would do all the seams. It can’t hurt.
A lot of yards don’t really like to let a boat hang to soak and will charge extra if they do. It’s getting harder to find wood boat friendly yards these days.

Re: fees waived again 2018 NYS Canals

I’m happy about this too. I’ve been going around w/ them about extending the hours in our section. Closing @ 5:00 is too early. It’s like they don’t care about anyone between May’s Point and Fairport.

Re: Bottom of 46ft conny

Hi, I slick seam my 28’er for two reasons, it seals up quicker when soaking up, and I think it stops paint from building up in the seams. When the planks swell the hard built up paint doesn’t move and will tend to crush the wood fibers on the plank edges. I have to haul out and paint every year so t...

Re: What Insurance is Required?

As far as I know, when towing your auto policy covers liability. Your boat policy covers physical loss of the boat and trailer. Depending on how your policy is written. Check w/ your agent.
