Wow,

I though that this boat group was someplace to bounce things around, help and get help. Oops I was wrong sorry. I just got my Trojan and am excited about it, and want to make her the best it could be. Donít want to reinvent the wheel, However, Donít seem to be people out there that want to give up the information this is sad. Well I am very industrious and will do with out help.

The fuel problem was the bottom of the tank filled with muck. This is formed by adding crap to the gas, every boat on the water has the problem, donít be fooled into believing you are safe, move the throttle up and bounce the boat around and watch you rpm drop, than clean your tank.. I had to rip up the deck and remove the tank for cleaning, I had the tank out cleaned, re-installed, and re-decked in less than 12 hours by my self "not an easy job".

Well, let's address your concerns first about responses.

In all fairness, you just got your Trojan. I recognize your excitement, and applaud you.

However, you must understand that most Trojan owners have had theirs for QUITE some time, and the thrill of "do-it-yourself" has sapped some of the excitement. (Not to mention that most Trojan owners are of the older type, a demographic that I have found don't surf as much, nor type as easily, and have more money to get things fixed by someone else!)

Anyway, unfortunately, this is about as good as it gets for a "Trojan specific" forum. There's a forum over at www.trojanboats.net, but I never got any of my questions answered from them.

Don't get angry and don't be frustrated.

I will certainly help if I can.

Chin up, eh?

 

Glad to hear you solved your fuel issue. Sounds like a nightmare.

I thank you for your responses that you have sent to my questions.

It is not that I just got my Trojan, my greatest pleasure is to take old discarded objects and restore them to, most cases better than new. There is something about the Trojan that I liked. Yes I myself could have purchased a new boat or could have someone do the repairs but what joy is that.

I am a person that would go out of my way to help anyone that has a question, especially if I know the answer and can save someone the trouble, but that is just me.

Solving the fuel problem is not something that I ever want to do again, one good thing is that I have a clean tank and a solid deck you could dance on.

Again, thank you for the help and insight you have given to me

If I may,  I have owned a Trojan F36 for 5 years and although it is for sale, I still have it.  I look at this forum every day as well a few others and I ususally comment when I have some knowledge about the topic.

I have done a great deal of work to the Trojan myself due to a combination of cost and personal satisfaction.

Glad you were able to solve the problem.  You may also want to particiapte in BoaterEd.com.  It is not a Trojan specific forum, but it has many knowledgable people who are willing to offer their own experience.
