Halmatic Pacific 22

Hi all, Im part of a group of electricians keen on fishing and diving and eating crab and lobster who thought it would be a great idea to buy a rib. We love it to bits.....literally.

During its second season, the heavier of our team, found a spot of rot under-foot when hopping about the rib. Which lead us down the road of ripping tubes off, followed by the deck, a few bits of fine tuning.......on and on and on we go.

It seems there’s a wealth of knowledge with this kind of open wallet, time consuming, finger blistering activities and I have enjoyed looking through some of your projects.

Hoping to get some pointers in due course.

Welcome to the forum.

The spot of rot under foot is quite common but many are at least 25 years old so the decks have done quite well.

There are a few project Pac 22's about but you seem to be cracking on with it so well done.

Ahh, looks like a proper project! Nothing more satisfying that removing old rotten ply and glassing in fresh stuff!

The deck has loosely been fitted. We are looking to re-route the throttle cables that were surface mounted to the console from the engine housing. Would prefer to have cables discreetly hidden within the centre console somehow. I’m still looking for an alternative side mount throttle lever. Oh, and we’ve upgraded from our ‘wooden dipstick’ to a 12v fuel gauge. Posh ain’t we?

Has anyone kept the original single width console and managed to conceal the cables to the lever. I’m looking at the Vetus type side mount throttle lever but have no true idea if it will work......without buying it and having a go.......unless someone has some knowledge of this particular conundrum?
