You think you have problems

Cosole problems?
It turns out that my "worn" Lomac console is molded to a deck hatch/panel that is 12X4ft. and the perimeter of which is secured by about 30 screws and caulk. I do not plan on removing it. Perhaps I will install a couple of 8 in. deck plates when I can work out where the fuel tank is. Oh, such fun
Regards to all, T.

Re: lomac rib

Give it time.. Once you get used to your boat you may find yourself doing more than you would ever have thought of doing in the first place, all you need is a little luck and some help from your friends! Good luck, hope it all comes out great, Pat

That's a motley looking crew there Pat... Looking at your various pictures, I am curious: Have you ever figured out how much your boat weighs? I don't imagine it's easy to pull!

You think they look motley? Truth be told, they were drinking beer all afternoon, it contributed. Wait til this Summer, I'll really show you some "motley pics" from Put-in-Bay and Kelly's, I will be filming this year. They were next door neighbors and a couple of friends, watching me get the boat and the truck stuck when i pulled it off the drive to line up under the tree to hang the hoist. As to the boat, I still don't know what it weighs but it is pretty damn heavy, I am having a hitch installed on the Van tomorrow so I will get the boat weighed Saturday morning just to see.

Tanks alot!

I was hoping to see a little more of the boat's construction when I removed the console but unfortunately all that was visible was the top of the gas tanks and tiny gaps port and starboard and about a two inch gap forward. These are BIG fuel tanks, measuring 52 & 1/2 inches long and 36 inches wide, each. V- shaped, they are 24 inches deep at the keel. the information I have says they are 125 gallons each, that is a lot of fuel. I have the boat all torn apart again and am wondering if I did the right thing, just to address some small issues, it is May... Anyhow, I have a hitch going on the Sprinter tomorrow and
fortunately once again my ace fabricators the Hout Bros. have some time for what I need done so I am hauling her a hour and a half down the road to their workshop for the new Radar arch and the additional welding I want done, this should be the last of any improvements involving welding mods.
Pics show the tanks and some foam I shot into the gaps to cushion them a bit, don't know if it needs it but what the hell..

Looks good Pathalla. That console looks pretty freekin heavy. Is your entire boat made out of aluminum or just sections of it ? Nice work. I say any repair / mod that helps one sleep a little better at night is worthwhile. Keep the pics coming I look forward to seeing your new radar arch, bet it will be a serious piece of kit .

The entire hull is aluminum, it really makes for easy modifications for the most part. As I have frequently mentioned, it helps to have a Scrap yard nearby and a excellent relationship with the owner/manager. I was over there again today for a couple of pieces for the trailer and the new radar arch, I finally am at the point where I will not be over there much at all anymore as I pretty much have everything for the boat, too bad because it is really fun looking around, they get some amazing things in.

Well Cod, If you think about it you have more fuel capacity than I do, one engine with 132 gallons U.S. versus my boat with twins with only 125 gallons for each motor...
