General Discussion / T 179 Starflite
« Last post by The Old Guy on December 17, 2018, 09:33:58 AM »
Good afternoon all. I have just purchased a 1977 T 179. The walk through windshield is sitting in the bottom of the boat and looks as though it was originally hanging on a "plastic" hinge. Does any one have experience with these, repairing or replacing?

This is the boat company that was used for two James Bond movies in the 70's (Live and Let Die ...and Moonraker).
This boat is fun and gets lots of attention. It is ready to go now or perfect for full restoration. Solid floors and strong reliable motor.
Title to the trailer and boat in my name... registered til July 2020 (boat)
Two new tires and comes with Bimini cover and boat cover.
Tows very easy behind any mid sized car or truck with 2" ball and 4-pin connector.

Gets good mileage... I have not used more than half a tank in a 4 to 5 hour period .. (believed to be 20 gal tank)
Engine runs cool and stays cool and it is not too loud but sounds healthy.

Likely cause is a propane leak.  Propane is heavier than air, so given a slow leak, it collected in the low areas.  Quite likely he never smelled the gas.  A terrible tradgedy that could happen to any of us that use gas, methane or propane.  Kerosene would cause a fire, but generally won't atomize to create an explosion.  Similiar to diesel.  Glad to hear he has a sense of humor about the accident.

Just received my new calendar today! Good quality photos. The price was right too!  Already hanging in my shop. Encourage everyone to pick one up while you can.

Wow - so sorry to hear about Mason but glad to hear he's gonna make it. I guess if he's making jokes about it already that's good..... but I'm sure at this point it hasn't really sunk in what just happened to him.

Curious if it was one of those kerosene fired torpedo heaters? I use one all the time to heat my garage, just used it yesterday in fact.
