Ian, good to see you found the leak. Do you have a bilge alarm fitted. Made one from a float switch and a buzzer from Mapplins. Also had an enginerring firm modify mine so that I can flush the engine by closing the original valve and opeing the top one.

Made the gasket from a piece of tube material.

Dont know if any good, but we have a similar arrangement on our Cheverton 24' launch but we have a hose attached so that we can use the engine to pump the bilge out should we have a very bad leak.

Following pac22 threads closely as we are hoping to get one as soon as funds avail.(got some more fundraising to do yet)

That's a good idea.

Paul hi,

Great idea, the standard naval pump on P22s is bronze (650 to replace) and designed to run out of water for up to five minutes so should stand swtiching from cooling water to bilge water.

Loosing track of who has them for sale at the moment but prices seem to be fairly stable other than someone in Cornwall wanting 20k, which seems way over the top. One in Scotland,

and a great one with:

http://www.lochin.com/ too much for me though.

Pete

That looks the dogs b**l*cks, have not got an alarm yet, i will do it when i do the float switch for the pump, got to thrash it some more first

Paul
Keep saving, i love this rib, may be a bit slower than most other ribs of the same size, but it just ploughs through the weather, tried to jump over the waves from a 30ft + power boat today and it hardly bounced.
I need some on shore winds, for serious playing.

If theres water in the bilge then the change over is nothing to worry about as you open one before shutting the other. On our engine(perkins) its a jabsco and it really does slurp out the old water.
Have checked those ones out before theres also one on conway commercials for 12k

Thanks mate you realy know how to hack someone off

I know i used to drive one whilst in the services and it used to get a right pasting, but would go through all you gave it. Brill boat the lack of speed is made up in other areas.

Hav fun

Fuel tank

Hi all
does anyone know how many gallons/litres of fuel the Pacific tank holds ??
the reason i ask is i ran out on friday( in the marina, thanfuly) filled the tank and two jerry cans and it came to 85 ltrs, that would make for a ten gallon tank, i cant belive that is right.
Pete do you have a fuel gauge on your's ???

Ian, its an 20 gal tank as standard which is why I ripped up the deck and put 170 litre tank in it so I could get across the channel.

The space the tank sits in is huge with this tiny little tank in the middle. If you don't want to change the main tank, put a hatch infront of the existing console to gain access the huge underdeck space and carry a couple of jerry cans.

Pete

Cant answe that im afraid but it is certainly not alot as the boat wasnt meant to go on long trips just ferry runs etc. When i was driving one (whilst in forces) on long hauls we had the john wayne saddle bag type tanks to go over the tubes.
