Hello All, sadly the end has come for my 38' commander.  The boat has electrical issues & fiberglass issues that exceed the value of the boat by far. That being said it has some great items.

  • Newly built not rebuilds, 427's stroked to make 468 cubic inches, beastly power, 6 hours on them
  • multiple sets of exhaust manifolds
  • chrome, chrome, chrome all rechromed within the last 5 years
  • lower helm gauges including the pods
  • original unused stove from 1967, aqua/teal color
  • (4) hj-7 trannies rebuilt/serviced by kalamazoo gear
  • huge custom coper risers
  • counter rotating cams(not used) 
  •  water pumps both raw & for closed loop
  • 6.5k kolher genny, runs like a champ
  • also have the original running take out motors, 1850 hours approx., good compression, sitting in my barn as well
  • new struts for bigger shafts, 1 season in water
  • new shafts 1.5"?
  • new props (need to confirm size)
  • email me with needs/offers
  • Jim Moore , parts on Long Island NY

Hi Jim,

I need the rail piece that is hinged to allow one board on the rear of the boat.

Thanks, Pat

Hi Jim,

I'm in need of a 4-5' section of mahogany railing. Also, if Pat (above) is not looking for the actual hinges/catch I'd be interested in those as well.

Steve.

What do you want for the shafts if they are 1.5 ?

Hate to see you dismantle your boat especially after spending time and money on chrome and new motors.

What kind of glass issues do you have?

However If your mind has been made up, what is your email ?

Hi, Pat, do you mean the railing tube that opens over to allow access to the swim platform?  Jim

1.5 shafts and struts

The fiberglass issues while not huge were the result of improper blocking in a boat yard... it just added to the hassle.  We love the boat and explored a TOTAL refit but could not get a refit company to commit to an all in price, even with the prospect of a full rewire(no repairing) and full system updates... we moved on and bought a commander 360 in turn key condition for less than I paid to have the 427/468 motors built.

email is jmoore@johnwesleyvillage.com   I'm not sure on shaft prices, can't recall off the top of my head what I paid... I would be willing to do a 2 for 1.  Basically, whatever those shafts cost new now, you would get both for the price of one plus shipping.

Hi Jim I’m local to you’re boat and interested in the helm gauges and steering wheel.  Let me know.  Thanks  Ken VanMeter 5165078892 call or text

that's the second time I've read about improper blocking causing damage to a 38. There seems to be a weak point that if not properly supported, can break. Sorry to hear of this.
