I have recently purchased a 1989 340 Express Cruiser which is in very good mechanical condition after spending a bit of dosh on her. I am moving her down to Halifax River Marina from Massachusetts in the next few weeks as a permanent home. I never have operated a twin engine before so hoping to find someone to give me a bit of tuition when I finally get her in the wet. I have read all the blogs on the PreClinton (40 pages) 80's Cruisers and was gratified to see so many fine folks willing to share their happy and horror stories in restoring these roomy classic beauties. My only helmsmanship experience was with my late Father's full displacement diesel powered sports fishing boat in Rhode Island In the 1970s and zipping around with small outboard crafts in the Bristol Channel in England during the past year and I can hardly wait to do some serious exploring along the Inland Waterways of Florida this winter. I attempted to move my boat down last year but Matthew changed my plans. A year later and I am ready to try again. One of my plexiglass sliders has a small chunk out of it so I hope I can replace that and I have to purchase new electronics, GSP packages, etc so I am really "at sea" not knowing what I need to operate her safely? I have taken Royal Yachting Association courses, recently, to refresh my power boat handling skills at faster speeds but the school did not have a twin engine to practice on. Any thoughts?
