Re: Steve's Boat

Your boats having an engines out, mine has precious little engine in it, Andre is without a boat completely. If it carries on like this we won't have one between us.

This is a boating forum isn't it.

Re: Steve's Boat

At least you know a good Crane driver Steve

Well lads,

Scooby Dooo is still intact and working well. So If you all want a ride then more than welcome.
Just say time and date and off we go.

Not planning on having it winterised just yet

Re: Steve's Boat

I went down on Thurs and took out the two engines. I thought 101 taking them both home would speed things up a bit but thers alot of fiddling about to do.


Will the air filters clear the new rocker covers? The coil packs need new mounts making etc, etc, etc.


I took a few picks . Most are just the view
One is a bit more interesting though, its of the transom shield from inside the hull, below the water line. On the outside the salt has pushed the transom shield away from the transom causing the seal to fail, the incoming water has then rusted away the plate that blanks off the normal exhaust vent. You could see the sealant where som much of the plate had rusted away. If it had gone much further the bilge pump might have had a bit more to do than just remove a little sea spray that had come in through the vents. The plate would be below the water line.

Re: Steve's Boat

See the 101 still has its uses then Steve.

Guess the up side to having the engines out is that there is no winterisation required

Keep them warm in your garage.

When are you planning to have them back in the boat?

A litle crack

A little crack turned out to be something huuuge. The timbers that were strengthening the bottom were split. Alot of the area delaminated.

The only solution I can see is to strip back the whole area, and rebuild it.

Just the matter of the compatablility of the resins then.

Time for a good book.

Question Re: Steve's Boat

Actually... Andre owes me a small favour for the battery charger.

Parker Poland?


NO chance! Not when I can put together another excellent master plan such as this>>

Tell me what you think


WORKSHOP

Use two 4m by 3m easy up canopies clamped together . Same as these two but side by side.

One spanning the boat,the other beside it for a bench for mixing and cutting.


Cover both canopies with a huge cheap tarp, Hopefully, 3 inches of tarp on the floor all the way round, held down by plank with two wheels of car on windward side and bricks and huge crock clips on other sides and down poles.


Temperature and Humiditiy

I have a combined dial guage on inside of working area to monitor the Temp and Hum.

Use an oversized gas space heater and warm up hull & entire area in tent to over 35C plus for an hour, before opening flammables. Hire in the space heater for a day.

Use two fan heaters to maintain and circulate warm air whilst working in the bilge to allowing a slow fall in temp from 35 to 20 whislt working.

I have an electric belt to put around the resin container to maintian its temp.

Put the whole lot to gether in a dry run at home, then pack it away and wait for a dry couple of days.
