    Fantasia engine swap?

    Hi. I’m looking for someone who has seen an engine swap on a Fantasia. I’ve got a badly leaking rear crankshaft seal. I need to pull the transmission and then the flywheel, to get access to the seal. It’s been suggested I should be able to slide the tranny and shaft back by about 6 inches...

    So they dropped my boat!

    I was having my Fantasia 35 hauled out yesterday for a refit, on a travel-lift. They managed to drop the boat out of the front sling, and the bow dropped about 3 feet onto concrete. Ouch! The Fantasia is a heavy bluewater boat, with parts of the hull being 1 inch thick. I've looked at the...

    Depth Sounder / Transom Type

    I have a Lancer 28. Does anyone any experience mounting a transom style sounder transducer in shoot-thru-hull mode? I purchased a Lowrance Mark-5X Pro dual frequency fishfinder at a great price, when I was told that this works. You apparently simply set it in epoxy. My question is, will...

    Lancer 28 Mast Stepping Help?

    I am getting prepared for winter. In the off-season I need to step the mast on my 1980 Lancer 28, to among other issues, rewire the VHF antenna lead. I plan on replacing the windex, adding an anchor light, and spreader lights, and possibly repainting the mast. Catch is, my boat is moored, and...
