Default 3500 Arch Removal Updates

Stray Cat:

I'm just following up on your post and wondered how you made out with the removal.

I took a cursory look, however the boat failed survey, so I did not look any further into it. I passed on the deal.
Since I wasn't purchasing it, I didn't want to pull off any panels to see what access would be like.

Thanks for taking the time to let me know. I will be removing the arch at the end of the month and will find out by trial and error. Good luck in finding another boat. There seems to be quite a few listed on Boatrader for sale on the east coast all the way down to Florida. We looked at the 2001 in Jacksonville but preferred the 2003 we found near Marco Island.

You don't need to do it. I shipped a 3700 w/o taking off the Arch. Has to be a lowboy and take off the radar.

Default 3500 Arch Removal Updates

I've measured the height overall excluding the radar and I have 15'7" which is way over the allowable height for transport. The boat is being transported from Florida to Washington State and some states require 13'6" and others 14'6" so we are removing the arch. The boat gets picked up the end of this week and they are working on the arch as I speak.

That's what I came up with as well. Good luck on your move. I'm in the north Puget Sound area and am up i BC often. I'm closing on a 2001 3500 SCR right now. Drop me a line after you get your's up here, maybe we can do a Maxum rendezvous!

We will be shipping to Seaview North in Bellingham and then sailing up the Fraser River, once the river rises enough, to our home on Harrison Lake in BC. I've asked the shipping marina to send me some pictures of the boat loaded and will post them here.

Mine is a 2003 with the extended swim deck and it has MAG 350's I would have preferred the big block engines but it is what it is. The big blocks aren't that much bigger in HP but they have a lot more torque.

My 2001 has the 7.4's but that seems to have been the last of them the others I have seen and I don't think there are many 35's over here are 6.2's.
