I know some of these questions are silly....but I don't know the answers..so here goes.
a) I have 2 inboard engines w/ v drives. I know the engines turn in opposite directions. Which way do they turn? Are the props left hand/right hand?
b) The top of the swim platform on the 3500 in quite proud of the water surface, which is nice, as I am told, it will help to deminish slapping of water under the transon. Is this true? If the transom is high up, does a 12' pontoon dingy have to be lifted up to reach the davits? Are 18" pontoon better?
c) Has anyone mounted dingy davits under the swim platform, which is easily accessable from the eangine room, as this would act to lower the davits and remove them from the walking area of the swim platform and get them largely out of sight?
d) Has anyone used Sea Wise Davits, the hydraulic one or manual, on their 3500? http://www.davitsystem.com/
. How did you deal with the pole and still retain reasonable access to the transom storage?
e) I'd like to dim the salon lights, but don't understand the wiring to the swiches. Has anyone done this?
Actually I have more questions but that's enough for now.
