General Mark Twain Discussion / Re: Newbie got a 79 24' MT 260V Mercruiser

Welcome, I see this post is pretty old so I'm sure you've got a lot of those questions answered by now but feel free to migrate on over to the Facebook Mark Twain's group there are a lot of active users in there that can point you in the right direction. I have been helping people out there for quite a while including taking videos of the engine running and various odds and ends to show how they work.

Greetings fellow Mark Twainer! I think a lot of us from this group have moved over to the Facebook group there are a lot of active users over there giving advice. As for your current situation with a soft floor in my humble opinion if you're going to cut out a piece and replace it you might as well do the whole thing because I'm sure there are other spots that are getting close to going and really wants to get the carpet up it's not that much work to do the entire floor versus patch a spot. Also I would highly recommend going out and buying the fiberglass resin and fiberglass instead of using any random polyurethane. Fiberglass is pretty much the same cost but will add you quite a bit of strength to the floor in addition to waterproofing it. When I did my floor all of the stringers were in Fairly good shape so we just reinforced them with fiberglass Mat and resin and then put the new floor on and fiberglassed that in as well.

The downside of wide front tires is a phenomenon known as tramlining. Its the tendency of the car to follow grooves in the road, sometimes pulling the vehicle in a direction you dont want to go. On a drive around Detroit, the GT350 was easily thrown off course by bumps and undulations in the road.

Welcome!  I would love to see some pictures if you have any. I am especially interested if you documented the restoration work you did.  I have a 79 240CC and have the same issues to deal with.  I am still a bit sad that this once active forum seems to have fallen asleep.  Maybe with some new folks like us we can breathe some new life into it and share our love for these boats.

Website News / anybody at the controls?
« Last post by jjhamm22 on April 10, 2019, 11:34:16 AM »
Hi. I am wondering if anyone is still attending to the website or if it is on auto-pilot.  The last post from the moderator was 2016.  I sincerely hope so as I just got an MT a couple months ago, have a restore project ahead of me, and could sure use the sage advice that I saw from the folks who used to post regularly.  I actually took the time to read EVERY post going back to the beginning. 
The one annoying thing is I can only see a few of the pictures on the gallery, and none in the posts (like of floor restorations).  Do you have any advice to be able to see them?

Hoping someone is out there and thanks for taking time to reply.
Jeff

Sorry for the delay. I am no MT historian, but I don't remember reading in any of the old posts that they used cardboard as braces. I have heard of other brands that used cardboard forms to lay fiberglass over to form stringers etc. Let me know if you find this to be true.  It isn't necessarily bad if you have enough fiberglass for the strength that is needed.  All in all, MT boats were known for their quality and strength.
