I'vejust bought a Trapper 300 called "Reefer". Have to say I'm very happy with her. The survey I had done came back with a number of minor issues.. one of which was the forestay eye bolt which the the surveyer thought was inadequate. I'm now in the process of getting a Furlex roller reefing system fitted, and the rigging chap who's fitting it has suggested that I replace this eye bold with a new stemhead.

If anyone can give me any information on who might do this, how much they might charge / any plans I'd be really grateful!

'Alerion of Adur' is regrettably looking for a new owner as this family owned boat is too large and lively for the remaining active owner. She has been cruised to Holland, France, Channel Islands and west country as well as our home base the Solent. We have owned her for 15 years and had lots of success club and organised racing, but now it is time to go for something smaller 27/28ft?? Pictures are available on the Trapper 950 web site. This is a rare opportunity to buy one of only nine 950s made before the builders got into trouble. Based in Gosport and asking 17,500. email me or call mobile 07885 426 781 for a detailed spec.

Can anyone suggest a suitable engine alternative for my 1980 Trapper 501 which is, at present, fitted with a Volvo 8hp. I note from the websit that some members have fitted a 15hp Nannai; others a Beta 13.5. I was hoping to fit a 20hp. Is this possible? Have looked at the Beta 20 but engine fitter says this is not possible without substantial modifications.

Hi,

Could anyone tell me if the Trapper 500/501 had the option of a shallow keel or are they all the same?

Regards.
Mark

Hello, I'm looking for a trapper 501 twin keel to buy. Preferably in good condition but will consider anything if the price is right - in UK or northern Europe.

Do we have any Suzuki outboard engine experts out there ?

I have a Suzuki DT4 which I brought to use on my tender. I think I may have a problem with it, but I'm not sure. It looks like new and is very clean, it started second pull in the test tank BUT, I think there may be a water circulation problem. There's a stubby little pipe coming out the bottom/rear side of the top casing with about 2" of rubber pipe on it. I'm guessing this may be the cooling water outlet/tell-tale but don't know. Anyway, the bottom line is that only steam seems to come out of it when the engine is running. I only ran the engine for a few minutes to avoid any chance of damage and can't seen any sign on the engine as to where the water outlet may be (I think it may get mixed with the exhaust). The cylinder head also seemed too get too hot for my liking.

Ayyway, anyone here know about these engines, do they have a thermostat which could be jammed, is the pipe on the casing a telltale and so should water be coming out of it, I'm guessing that a new impeller is a good idea but does anyone have a manual or any good other ideas ?

Thanks, Brian ('70 T28 "Blazer")

Subject: Moorings for a T28 in Dorset (Weymouth ?)

Date Posted: 27/10/06 10:19:28

After literally years of searching for a new home, I have finally bought a small place with a few acres just north of Bridport, Dorset.

My T28 Blazer has happily bobbed away on her mooring in Gosport during the last 8 years that I have owned her, but now of course she needs to be moved. My nearest harbour Bridport (West Bay) dries as do most of the Lyme bay harbours so I guess she needs to be in Weymouth which is 20 miles east of me or Portland which is presumably cheaper. Anybody have any ideas on mooring prices and/or decent sailing clubs in the Weymouth area ?

Regards, Brian (1970 T28 "Blazer")
