mystery item
« on: October 09, 2017, 05:52:00 AM »

as i progress cleaning through my new to me boat, i've come across an item i can't identify.  i have two identical items as pictured, they're made of pretty thick aluminum with nice welds.  and have a plastic insert with slots.  any ideas?  it's conceivable that they don't go with the boat at all, but were left behind on it by the previous owner.

It's the ice cube tray that comes with the A-B refridgerator. Stands vertical in the freezer section.

They are expensive, too! About $70-$90 each, depending on your source!

       The PO probably like me didn't use them because they take up to much room in the freezer, what I do for ice is use a freezer bag and fill it with crushed ice, that way you can freeze as much ice as you want and shape the bag to accommodate other items you want in the freezer.

You can sell these on eBay in about 5 minutes. I sold a set last year for a friend for about $70 a pair. High demand for these.

Sue - Thanks! I'll give that a go. I need to clean up my collection of boat junk in the garage.

I have had great success purging boat junk/spare parts I didn't need on ebay.  I suggest for some of these you consider shipping outside of the US.  I have had several items sell to Australia and other more remote places.

     Sue,

       I noticed on your signature your boat is hull #272 built in 1987, my boat is hull #273 built in 1986. How do you suppose they did that?

Kevin,

Per this explanation of the hull numbers http://c34.org/bbs/index.php/topic,9495.msg71130.html#msg71130 my Hull number was CTYP0272G687.  Which indicates it was  built in July of 1986 but considered a 1987 model year.  So, I have referred to it as an 87. 

BTW, I am now a former owner of this boat but still enjoy the conversation here.

     Sue,

       After looking at the link you posted and my HIN and registration it turns out that my boat is an '87 also, who knew. I have corrected my profile to reflect that. I have no idea how I missed that all these years! Maybe because I remember seeing Top Gun sitting at Stan Miller Yachts dock being commissioned for the original owner, that was Oct or Nov of '86, I guess I just assumed it was an '86.
       Sorry to hear you no longer have your boat, I hope it was an amicable separation.

Kevin,

Per this explanation of the hull numbers it was  built in July of 1986 but considered a 1987 model year. 

And if it had of been built on August 1, 86, it would be a 1988 model!
BYW, there has been a proposal to flip date to March, which the manufacturers have lobbied for and the USCG has no problem changing to, but it's tied to a bill that Congress doesn't need to/care to act on, so it just sits there.
