  1. Selling a Good Automatic Windlass Model F850A Used but in excellent condition - serviced before we were going to install in on our boat, but we sold the boat due to medical reasons.

This is the newer F850A model - you can go to Goods website for specs - goodwindlass dot com Free fall - and the only windlass on the market that you do not have to tie off once you anchor (per Good) Includes the following: - Complete install kit - Windlass, motor, solenoid, switch, breaker, o-rings, manual, etc - new they sell $2,025 - Shaft extension - if you have a deep deck/pulpit, or remove it if you don't need it - new they sell $150 - Good 1/2" x 300' anchor line kit w/ 10' BBB galvanized chain lead[/size] new they sell for $ 385 New from Good F850A with the shaft extension and with the anchor line kit these go for $2,175 Asking $1,200 - No Shipping way too heavy - local pick up or we can arrange to meet in western Morris county or at the Atlantic Highlands marina * Sorry for some of the pics coming up sideways, not sure why.

  4. Selling a used lower unit. Came off a 2001 Yamaha 250HP 0X66. I was planning on keeping it in case I ever chipped or cracked the one on the boat. But I need to clear out things I don't really, really need. The housing itself is in good shape, but not certain on the gears. Pickup in Morris County or maybe we can meet in a reasonable distance. Another alternative is at the Atlantic Highlands Marina on a weekend. Asking $425 - Cash & carry.
  5. I have done it with similar procedures as Fishfood described. Which I wrote down for future use and cut/pasted below. Procedure to lift boat up off trailer This process will get you about 3-4” of space between the boat and trailer touch points. 1) Tires – Makes sure they are full * You may need to let the air out at further stages 2) Lower trailer jack as low as possible. Purpose for this step is to raise/tilt the stern up as much as you can. 3) Place a stack of concrete block in each stern corner close to 3” or so to the chine. Then put wood blocking to take up the remaining space – as tight as possible. 4) This step is raise the front of the boat, and I use the truck hitch to help. - Raise the jack and hook up to the trailer hitch. - Crank the trailer jack handle up to its highest point, so that you maximize the distance from the base of the stand or wheel jack and the ground. - Place blocking under the trailer jack to take up the remaining space – as tight as possible. 5) Raise the trailer jack, pulling it off the truck hitch and continue as high as you can. Note – this will put the stern on the rear blocks. You should now notice a gap between the rear trailer bunks/rollers and the boat. 6) Place concrete blocking with a piece of wood (2x8 or larger) on top to take up the remaining space – as tight as possible. 7) Lower the trailer jack all the way. This should free the boat from the trailer. 8) Taking the air out of tires can get you another couple of inches. Go in reverse order to get it back on the trailer. Here are some Pics for visual
  6. Yes I called Lewmar and they sent me a PDF but was told it was not likely to scale and that it was a copy of a copy, etc. I was not terribly impressed that they did not have a real to size template on file. Otherwise they were pleasant and got it to me by end of day.
  7. I bought a GOOD F-850 but its way too big to mount on my boat. These things are real heavy duty and I truly wish I could make it work, but it will take too much cutting that I'm not interested in. So now I'm looking to see how a Lewmar 700 will layout on my boat before I buy decide to get one or not. If any of you that has a Lewmar 700 and still have the mounting template that you can email, please PM me. Thanks John
  8. Yep - I plan on installing the GOOD windlass that has been sitting in boxes in the garage since last year.
  9. I had an 87' 204c for many years and I absolutely loved it. Like with ANY boat of that age, check out the things listed above. I went through mine inside and out and know it well ;-) The cockpit deck & fuel tank can be easily checked by pulling up the screwed on floor section (maybe 10 or so screws). There are wood cross members in front, behind and across the fuel tank. On my boat the deck felt a little soft, so I replaced a few cross members with new PT lumber that I coated in epoxy - easy fix that worked great. In addition I would look at the wiring under the console panel. I took mine off and cleaned up the wiring and any corrosion which unless the previous owner did it, there will be some. It was a good winter weekend project. 3 years ago I moved up to a 92' 246g (Sea Vee 2 hull). I agree with others that the new hull is a great improvement. But if the deal is right (cost & condition) I would not overlook the 87'. Feel free to reach out if you need more info. John
