Pacific 22

Hi Pete 7
Following from PM.

Many thanks for the reply, have you any infomation on injector pump setings, or where can i get a manual from.

Yes i did by Sebs boat, collected from Cardiff and took it to Plymouth on a trailer with no brakes, but had a very good run back, no scarey moments.

I have primered and anti-fouled the hull as it will be bearthed on a marina for a year, i was going to take some pics of the launch on Friday, but got very excited and forgot, see this is only the second boat i have ever owned and the first to be put in water.

Went out twice on Friday, once on Saturday and again on Sunday, it has been very windy down here so it made for good sea trials, wot a hoot this boat is.

When i went to check on the boat yesterday i noticed there was a lot of water in the boat, i emptied it out and i think the water is coming from the seal between the transom plate and the transom, have you changed yours in your big refit and where do you think i could get one, after looking at your consul mod, mine is staying put.

Ian

Ian hi,

You can probably get a seal from Lancing Marine but they are not cheap. Alternatively if you can stand reading through the pacific console post there is a guy down in Plymouth who has some bits. The leak might be from the decks because they are not glassed in like most ribs rather screwed down onto the bearers. I fitted a float switch and pump in the stern to drain out any water. Worth checking the seal on the prop shaft which goes to the stern drive.

Or e mail Jamie, he is selling a P24 on Boats and Outboards at the moment. He has some bits. You can do a console in a weekend, go on you know you want to do it.

Send me a pm with your address and I will do you a copy of the manual. Go on the Mermaid Owners engine course, for 85 you get the best days tuition available and its teaching on the very engine we have.

Why are you playing with the injector pump ? leave it alone, these engines will smoke until the turbo cuts in on acceleration.

Oh yes I think that boat has the wrong size prop on it. the best size Nev and I can come up with is the standard 21".

You towed a 2.5 tonne boat from Cardiff to Brixham with no brakes, hmm bet that was fun.

The leak is from the port side and is dribbleing in and it has not been raining.
There is a pump in the aft area but no float, i have got one to fit but as yet not had the time.
The only thing i would change the consul for is to have more room between the seat and the steering wheel, to fit me gut in, but getting used to it.
I want to play with the injection pump, as it doesn't start to boost till 2000+ rpm, cos it is only boosting to 0.5 bar and it don't smoke off boost, lack of fuel i think.

I am going to try a temporary repair on Sunday, as i don't want to take it out of the water at the moment, i want to use it.

Will send PM with address and thanks for the copy of the manual in advance.

To Plymouth, the roads were quite clear, thankfuly.
Towed realy smoothly the driver ended up cruising at 70-75 mph.

Okay, this is what I know about the pump. On top of the pump is a small thimble. Take this off and underneath is a screw which you must never touch. Give it a turn. If you want the equivalent of nitros oxcide then put 24 volts through the switch on the pump. It will open the rack and give full fuel flow through the pump. Mike Bellamy from Lancing said make sure you are holding on though if you try this

Chris at Mermaid is a font of knowledge and for 15 a year the owners club is a good deal with out of hours advice. I used it on a bank holiday!

Think mine starts to boost at 1000 but it isn't until 1800 that the pressure is up to a 1 bar.

I will have a look and a play, i will be pulling the Rib out on Sunday for a couple of hours to do a temp repair with sicoflex and then do the job properly at the end of summer.

The rib has been sat on the marina in Plymouth all week and i have not taken it out once, just a bit p***ed off, got to go on a sea trial tomorrow, on a 61 ft yacht leaving at 10.30 back at 17.00 still no time to go out.

Oh you poor thing!

Just one thought, the stern power legs can have an exhaust attached to them but in the Pacific they are blanked off with a plate. Wonder if someone has not sealed it properly. the plate fits below the drive.

Hi Pete
the trip on the yacht was boring, bl**dy think would only do 9 knots, too slow, to many ropes and to much running around.

Found the leak on my Rib today, pumped the water out a couple of days ago, went down yesterday, no water went out for a trip for about an hour, switch on the pump on the way in and loads of water came out.
So this morning a mate drove while i checked the hoses and coolers, as we were coming close to planing, water started coming out of the strainer, Seb had made a new strainer mesh but it was slightly to long and it was holding the lid up, so we ground it down, made a new gasket and no more leaks.
