    Not a Broward; but not a skidoo, either.

    It would be nice to see a pic of someone behind the Sea Deuce.

    That'll do- I had already hotlinked the Yachtworld page but the post was removed. IDK if links are allowed. It's listed by Joe D. with MacGregor yacht sales; not Galati. Of course any buyer can have his/her own broker.

    Under rail cockpit LED's have been installed- quite similar to the ones above the salon door. Any color, fade 3 or 7, jump 3 or 7. Controlled by a wireless remote from inside the salon. Total cost of lights + controller and items to mount - less than $50. Pics coming soon after I spend the night aboard. I also mounted one of the old Ocean LED UW light above the hardtop pointed up to the bottom of the tower.
    Here's the MacGregor listing

    or green? ( the deck has a bit of water on it- thus the dark spots ). Both cockpit LED lights can be just about any color including white, flash, strobe, fade/jump with 3 or 7 colors and be dimmed.

    This is probably a silly/basic question, but what are the 3 sets of control levers for?
    Throttle, gear and ???
    I have seen it on Donzis from those years and but on anything else. Is it a DD thing?

    I notice you are using South Bay Strainers. I learnt what these are when I asked a question on the HOF regarding the lack of sea strainers on my boat.
    I was about to get internal strainers installed when Pascal explained that I had the South Bay type and there was no need for more. These are not used on any Australian boats.

    I think it's worth mentioning considering how much space these save in the ER and easy access to the GB etc. that they allow.

    You have a great boat! Good luck with the sale.

    Adding engine room strainers, IE Perko's or Groco's on top of the grate type strainers really helps sand to drop out of the raw water into them if you have a dock where it's really shallow and you stir up a lot of sand/mud. Other than that there is no need.

    The third set of levers are trolling valves; they allows the gear to "slip" so forward speeds slower than idle forward are possible. A fellow employee while I was at Viking asked me the same question and I told how when I move on I'd like to captain a sportfish with Detroits and mechanical trolling valves. That was 12 years ago. This spring will bring me to ten years aboard the Sea Deuce. :)

    I have interior raw water strainers (groco or the like) for the three air conditioning pumps, the 12 volt and 110 volt live well pumps, the wash down pump, the crew manual toilet and the generator. Those also have external hull strainers which you refer to as "South Bay" strainers. The main engines do not have ER strainers- just the South Bay hull mounted scoops. I had to google "South Bay strainers"- I've always known them to be called scoop strainers. With the huge amount (at times) of sargasso weed here in Florida exterior hull scoop strainers are a must.
    BTW- what's "HOF" and "GB"?
    Thanks for the good luck! The new owner will certainly feel the same pride and enjoyment as I do about this legendary boat. We can sit next to the new "Blank Check" and "C'est la Vie" and feel right at home.

    Guess that was the only thing that would make sense, especially on a sport fish, but better to ask and thank you for the follow-up.

    HOF is the Hatteras Forum and GB is Gear Box.

    I'm not the worlds best "caulker"; but I do know who is.
