  1. It has been several years but some of those aluminum parts used to be for sale on Ebay.
  2. It looks to me like the MR 21, that is the older narrower hull that was used on the older holiday 22 and Super Sport 22, and not the MR 22 which has the same hull as the Islander 22 and the Islander 19. That hull came out in 1979 as the V5 hull-deeper wider and a better ride with the full deep V

    for sale : usa 1979 Sea Ray Boat Model SV300

    Sea Ray SRV 300 Weekender-a great boat.
  4. I don't know that there is anything in the Volvo outdrive that would prevent the usual process of winterizing like you would do any other outdrive. I would do some research on line to be sure if no one responds on here. There is probably a video on You Tube.
  5. Tohatsu website shows Trident plus two other dealerships in the Rochester region. I did not look up Nissan.
  6. You have to get to the right person at the DMV with all your information. Surprisingly in this situation they can be very helpful. If the trailer is under 1000 lbs in terms of weight it can be registered as homemade. If the boat is pre-title era, which i think is before 1988 or 1989 it will be a lot simpler process. VIN numbers are also very helpful.
  7. If you are not doing anything for several years you have plenty of time to do your research, go to boat shows and ask owners at marinas or boat ramps about how they feel about their particular boat. As alluded to in the above post, every year boats with low hours come up. Now that the market has sort of returned to normal, those used boats will start to appear again.
  8. It might help move all your postings if you put your location or put on location on your log in.
  9. Going to be hard to find a tandem trailer for a 19 islander. Not many out there with a GVW less than 3500 lbs which is really all that is needed at most. Seems to me that it would make more sense to become over-zealous on trailer maintenance, like switching out tires far far sooner than one normally would for your own piece of mind. Can do a lot of trailer maintenance for the cost of the switch out in terms of trailers. Just a thought. I speak from experience. I had a tire blow out on a tandem trailer as well. Scary at the time but now just a distance memory.
  10. Depending on the year- Robalo has been a name. Like many manufacturers it has gone through ownership changes over the years. Being a 23 footer I don't think deadrise should be an issue. The boat would be 8 or 8 1/2 feet wide. On a smaller boat, a 17-18 footer deadrise would be much more of a factor. I don't know the specs of a Grady off the top of my head but they usually have quite the V and there are plenty of those around.

    for sale : usa Starcraft islander

    As it reads and I interpret it the boat was sold in 2019 to wrestlecoach-he then resold it because he decided to move up to a 25. It has been four years now so it all seems legit. The first poster should have closed this off.
  12. It was advertised on Craigslist at $5250.00
  13. suzukimarine.com Several come up in the Albany area, only two or three for Kingston.
  14. Water pump failed on a 20 Evinrude I have a decade ago, it got so hot in a short period of time that almost everything that was gasket material or plastic melted.
  15. There are more center consoles on the lake now than there were twenty years ago or thirty years ago. I own a small one now. I am not posting this to knock them because they have a place, it just can be cold, damp and wet in the early spring and the fall which is likely a turn off to some potential buyers. Some buyers have family considerations. It can also be very nice in July and August when the air temperature is hitting 90.
