Boat questions

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone here have any knowledge of the Late 80's Grumman boats? I bought a 1988 Grumman last year but cant seem to find info on the model I have! I know that its a GFF 164. If any one has knowledge of these or knows where I could find some info I would appreciate it..

Thanks

Cali

Calli - we had a grumman circa that time frame. Cant remember if it was 88 or 89. She was 14 ft, deep, and wide, plus very well made! I'll see if I can find a picture of it with some fish. What info are you looking for?

LOLing here!!! Jay, AS I told Todd, I am a data freak. I read all my owners manuals and usually memorize them becouse you just never know what or when something strange might happen. I am looking for the over all specs on the boat. Items such as electrical info and specs on the misc pumps, and options. the general use and care instructions. blah.. blahblah, blahblah.

Pics would be cool. Can I post a pic or 2 if theirs no fish involved?

Todd, You will be first invited to go out with the green horn if you wish to do so.

Todd, Thanks so much for taking the time to give me some pointers on the boat. I learned alot and really have the itch to get her in the water now!! As for the reg, I was gonna take it down to DMV tmro but My dad insisted that he do it on line. So Ill have to wait till it comes in the mail. Hopefully it wont only be a few days.

Thanks again and I owe ya one, or two..

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
