Pacific 22

Hi all
Pete i saw a picture of the stern of your Pacific and was wondering ,
why is the back of your's so much further out of the water than mine,
the top of the outdrive on mine is just bellow the water, so the exhaust is under water as well,
when it was lifted into the water they told me is was 2 ton on the gauge in the crane, the only thing i have done since is add an aux outboard a 5 hp honda can't weigh that much.

Ian,
I just bought a P22 in bits, the hull, engine and gearbox alone (everything else removed, tank in place but empty) weighed exactly 1500Kg on the load indicator.

forgot to ask,
how are you getting on with your rebuild.
the one thing i would realy like is a Bl**dy fuel gauge and a bigger tank.
had to clean out my fuel tank again, cleaned it out in April, cursed the marina for selling bad fuel, but it turned out to be the cork gasket from the inspection cover.

Ian, I think its the timing of the photo, in that a wave has just gone under the hull and we are both stood on one side of the hull. At rest the stern drive top is just under the water when the tank is full (170 litres) and one person stood on the stern. You can see the tide mark were she normally floats.

The rebuild is not happening due to lack of time! I've found someone with more time who want's to buy the project so I'm afraid that regretfully I'm going to be selling it on. I've had it 3 months now and achieved nothing at all, and no prospect of doing anything much till October at the earliest so I'm looking for something else that I can use now. Have found an Ocean 5.9 but can't go to see it till August, that's a possibility - shame as I really liked the P22, looked at one a few years ago but couldn't afford it then.

If you want a fuel guage, look at ASAP supplies site www.asap-supplies.com they've got loads of good stuff on there, and well priced too.

Oh dear I seemed to have missed a trick there, could have been a really cheap Pacific for sale

Thanks for the compliment, by the way just found a small cabin console just being made at the moment on the Isle of Wight. Total space inside is about the size of a double bed. Now there is a thought, but don't tell the Missus she will throw a track at the thought of another Pacifc Console change,

Pete

i am very sorry to hear that you are parting with your project, but i have the same problem, no time, that is why i bought one that was ready to go, i had a Shetland 570 that i got as payment for a dept, bit of a mess, ripped out everything replaced floors, seats, windows, repaint etc, etc, had it for 3 1/2 years, never made it to the water, then sold it, cost a fortune in storage.

You just know how they like to complain.
I think it would be a good idea and your total post would exceed hers, or do you think that is the problem.

If you fitted the cabin console could you get a cat 2 codeing ????

Mine will only be for sale when i replace it with another Pacific.
