Being a Maxum guy I don't want to offend the Trojan guys but first, this is a great thread. You guys have tackled every project I have on my list. Thanks for all the info. My question is for John (jmeir). Looks like you finished your bamboo floor in march of 2013. I'm thinking of Bamboo as well. How is it holding up? any moisture problems. Did/does it swell to cause any buckling since it looks like yoi made the hatch joint pretty tight? Any other issues? Subfloor ok? Thanks in advance. By the way we're located in Great Oak. If I see your boat I'll stop and say hi.

Keith. This weekend I am hauled out at Oak Harbor Marina in Pasadena. The floor is holding up just fine. Bamboo has the least amount of change with temp/humidity. I put my floor in as a floating floor so it can expand and contract as it wants. I imagine it will last longer than any carpet would ever last. My subfloor is screwed down.

Well I decided today to go ahead and paint the bottom. So I will be spending the next four days grinding and sanding away at it and then painting it. I am also,polishing the sides below the rub rail. Spent about 7 hours today on the hull sides. Of course I had to pick the hottest weekend of the year. Lol

It was getting painted before it went back in no matter what. What I was undecided on was wether I was going to,put it back in this year. The marina where it is at has been great. When they saw the problem they bent over backwards to get me new bolts (at their cost no less) and found a place to set it down. They are not charging me for the lay up days either. I figured I was saving quite a bit and no longer had anything to do during my time off so why not. I am hoping we don't get much for rain and everything goes smooth.

Well 8 new 318 stainless bolts with matching locking nuts, 18 discs of 80grit paper and 3.5 gallons of multi year ablative paint later;

Never a good sign from the chart plotter. LOL


I was going to put that zinc paint that was discussed in another thread but could not find locally and could not get it here until Monday. So I will see how they fair with nothing the rest of this year.


Since I was out I decided to polish and wax the hull sides too

If you need some help or advice once you get started let me know. It is not as hard as it seems, just time consuming. It helped that I had put wood floors Ina house before too.

Hey guys checking back in, have a few pictures with more to follow. Knocked down some walls but will be going back up. Just easier to put the material on. The cabinets are coming out great and should start some installs in a week or two. Wife put in a request for a diesel fired oven so were checking into that.

Yes it is a lot of work but even though this is not a boat here is my last project. Roof went bad on it and between rot and mold I had to strip it down to the frame and put in all new. I did everything except for paint. I have to admit I will not be doing everything on this project just because of time issues.




We did it up for our local College football team.

Hi Todd Impressive! Interesting to see what's behind the paneling. I take it you are looking for a diesel fired heater. My boat came with one and it's great to have. I had an Espar hydronic 12, it finally gave up and I had to look for a replacement . I was lucky enough to find an Espar 10 hydronic on E Bay. It hooked right up to my system and works great,a little smaller but it has enough capacity to heat the boat inside and out.
I have rubber hoses but a guy I talked with said today he would use Pex tubing.

Hi odvar, yes a diesel heater is a must. We are on the boat a lot in winter as it sounds you are. I want to put in some vents for the windshield because defrosters would be great. Also since you have the QSM as well I have a question for you. I have not checked it out yet but if you answer me before I do I do have a question? The two red wires and the two yellow wires coming from your ECM down to the battery bank, are they both going to the positive leads? Any way I will post some more pictures when I get back up to the boat.

Hey John next time I am up there I will take a picture. I just ran new air lines to them. If I remember correctly there are two bolts that hold it down, there are two air lines going two it that are teed together and then from there it is a single air line going to the air pump that is located about where the electrical panel is but more in line with the horn on the roof.

Thanks Todd. My deck horns do not work. The previous owner remedied that by installing new electronic horns on the arch. I have wanted to remove and/or replace the the deck unit since I have bought the boat but did not want to just start taking down ceiling panels until I found it. This will help immensely.

That looks great I'm guessing your panels do not have back lights?
I have a very different setup and mine have back lights I don't think would work with those labels.

What is the time frame for this project? I can't wait to see the boat finished!!

Thanks Todd. If my air compressor is in the same place it is going to stay right where it is. That is fairly unaccessible in my opinion. Actually, the photo I was looking for was the bottom side of the horns themselves. Like I said, I would like to try and remove them if it is relatively easy and I do not have to tear apart the entire headliner to find it.

You panels look great. They are a lot different than any I have seen in a trojan to date though.

That surprises me about the panels being different. I have been on only two other boats and they had the same panels. Dave I hope to have everything done by the end of the year. A big change should of happened this week and I will go check on things this weekend and if so I will have some pictures.

So as many here have, my center bilge always seemed to have water in it. I was sure that it was coming from first the anchor locker and then the rear trunk bilge. I fixed the anchor locker and still had water. I redid the trunk and found no way for water to get from there to anywhere.

I few weeks ago I replaced my rudder bolts and rebed them with 4200. Well my bilges are bone dry now. Even after today's run on plane for just over an hour. If you have water in the center bilge I suggest pulling and rebedding your bolts during your winter lay up. Worked for me.

I can see that, I had water show up in the center bilge, found that it came from the top of the rudder sleeve where it comes out of the fiberglass behind the panel in the the back. Sealed it and it stopped for a couple of years but now I think it's back:(

I have no access from the lazarette to the engine room bilge, how can water pass?

Allen. Even though the hull is solid fiberglass the water will find a way through it. In my case, and maybe others, it had worked its way to the center bilge in the salon. I suspect this happens more than people think it would.

One way you can check in water for loose rudder bolts is to put a wrench to the nut in the trunk and see if they are loose. I had this going on for as long as I owned the boat and it was never found. Not even during the survey. And as others have noted the water would create quite a smell if it was left for any length of time. No more smell :) that was the wife's first comment this weekend.

Today may become a project day even though I'm on vacation. During the ride to Montauk oth my wipers whent out the port side gets poping the breaker and the starboard side seems to be slightly out of adjustment it hits the window frame. At one point the starboard wiper travel too far and shutdown I had to push off the widow frame once in the habor and then it started to work again. Being the I plan to travel to Block island tomorrow morning anf the weather is not looking great I would like to make sure at least the starboard wide wiper is work well.
in adition to the above issue I thing I must have sucked something into the AC system because I'm not getting a good flow on either output but one is barely coming out. The forward unit shut down with an erro code but once it was reset it continues to work just fine. I don't want to wait for both units to stop before I clear the clog but im not looking forward to getting in there to work on it. Me back is still not great and it is very hard to get to!

Dave, I presume you checked the strainer? Pull it out, don't just look in it, it could be clogged with jellyfish.
I don't know how anything could get past it, so it also could be that you sucked something up against the intake on the bottom of the boat. Jump in and see if that's it.

The drains on both sides of the inside of my windshield (near the helm and portside seats) are clogged. The plastic cover with the holes in it is partially blocked by the windshield. Have any of you guys taken them off to clear the drain? If so, do I have to detach the entire aft portion of the windshield?

My port side cover pops off the starboard side is stuck in I just poke the crud through the hole with a toothpick and that usually fixes the problem.
The good news is this morning I went to fix the AC problem and everything was working perfectly before I could even touch it whatever was blocking the intake must have come free during an off cycle so I move onto the wipers of course the starboard side is working perfectly at this time but the port side is looking like a perject I noticed the my washer sprayer is not working so I'm guessing it get power from the port wiper.

I do not get that much water to those drains. My windshield does leak a bit at the base but not enough to cause a lot of water to go to them. Where does the water come from that you have that much?

I did my ruddes bolts in the beginning of the season. I will look though at the back and see if there is any way for water flow from the lazarette to the mid bilge.

On mine water gets into the stringer in the garage and finds its way to the center bilge. There are some big holes back there

There are holes in the beams in the lazarette. I run a tube through them so the water drain in to the mid bilge in the lazarette. The water in the mid ship bilge gets in from the port side through hole.

Allen, my holes through to the mid section had pvc epoxied into them so I knew the water did not come from there. I did relocate my pump in the mid section much as you did and it takes care of the rain water that comes in.

Odvar, if you do as Allen did our use PVC as they did with mine and epoxy it in place I think you can eliminate that cause.

When you say the water comes in from the port side through hole, did you mean through hull? I do get water in the rear bilge from rain, not a lot but enough to make it messy. I plan to put a weather strip on there sometime soon. I have the material now just need to find time to do it. I am finally getting a chance to use the boat so the little projects are taking a back seat for a while.
