Converting an arctic 28 to inboard diesel

One and a half year ago I bought an arctic 28 and wanted to convert it to inboard diesel. In octobre we bought a yanmar 440hp, but sold it because of the extra costs for gearbox and sterndrive....

After picking it up and store it here, we take off the console and seating.After that we began dismantling the deck. Like Martini, this was a hell of a job, with all screws and treadmaster in the way... We finally were ready with the deck...Pics to follow

Yes it's Phil's yard..Bought it in feb 2008.. After we sold the yanmar 440hp, we bought a complete package at coastalrides: Volvo D6 330hp. We took out the 2 middle stringers where the aft tank was situated(easier said than done). we left the front tank and placed a new deck of 12mm wood with 3 layers of GRP. We powder coated all fittings and made two front lockers. The engine will be mounted instead of the aft tank, so we made engine beds with 7 layers of roving and 7 layers of GRP. We took 4 steel plates after the 7th layer. We splitt the engine from the sterndrive and use a volvo patented jackshaft to get the weight more in the middle of the boat and put the console above the engine. For safety we use protecting casings both sides of the shaft. Pics to follow...

Sounds like a great job - you will have to keep us all updated with photos - proper ones next time though - not from a mobile phone.

Keep up the good work!!!
