So, driving a Pac in London traffice would be a breeze


The one in HMS Sultan used to train baby shipwrights has a number of holes in her. Hull is about 3/8ths thick, thats about the same as the flak jacket I had in Belfast.

If the cost of a stern drive is too much, Jammie in Southampton has some bits (Extreme Marine).

A Register sounds good

Hi All,
Really sorry for the delay in responding, i have been laid up with a duff back from an accident 30 odd years ago, where I fell down a ladder on HMS DIDO.
Landed on my b##t and dislodged my sacrum. The chiropractor in Newport found this in 2 minutes when the pussers physioterrorists and doctors, armed with xrays and other paraphernalia, failed miserably on more than one occasion.

Many thanks for your support and advice over this costly period for Sharkie.
She is back in the water with a 'better than new' sterndrive with all the proper anodes fitted. Total cost was £4200 (ouch) but that did include a little work on damaged gelcoat (chines and nose) and a new bilge pump.
Still, she is now watertight and going well. I still have some more of the chacks that you all have suggested. We took her across from Island Harbour to Hamble Pt the other day on smooth water. Clean exhaust, good plane and 2600 rpm max. I aim to change the fuel filters and so on then see what else I can do to get the engine up to 2800, which I am told is a safe level.

Now our other boat (Wight Mistress - fisher 34) has a leak on the stern tube.
She comes out tomorrow for a fix before her 2 bilge pumps give up on us.
Will this never end? S'funny how huge bills all come in togeter and just before Christmas - aaah such is life

Have a great Christmas. I will be out commuting across to Portsmouth daily in a week or so - just letting the back settle a bit more first.

Regards

Steve

Steve, brilliant to hear she is back in action and so are you. Ian brought his P22 up from Brixham over the weekend, brave chap, so we did lunch at the lighthouse next to the RNLI. Sorry if I had thought about it we could have met up. Have to have a huge meet up at the next Ribex in May.

Hi, Does anybody know where I can obtain manuals for my Pacificís hull and machinery and in particular the hydraulic trim pump, as I am about to take it to pieces!
Any suggestions on either would be greatly appreciated.

Leon.

Iím told the trim pumps are non service items
The outdrive pump was made by smiths industries. Part no. R2HXXPQNXEXXFFU but smiths were taken over by SPX,
Ashton Road,Romford, RM3 8UA
Tel: (44) 01708 343 851,Fax: (44) 01708 373 993
Who put me on to someone in Holland who could make one. They are expensive (£250 ish) and if you can find another bit of kit that will do it or a second hand one it would be good.

Try Neville who posts on here he seems to have some bits

Leroy pm me your e mail address, I have a copy of the operating manual which Jelly turned into a PDF file for us. If you can give me a fax number I also have the wiring diragram for the pump which changed at some point in the boats history.

Having replaced my trim motor by buying a new one from Lancing (don't even ask how much) the following week I saw something very similar in one of Pompeys hydraulic specialists

I did have a go at repairing it and it worked for a while, but when you take the two nuts of the top of the electric motor the long studs they attach too drop down into the reservoir and reconnecting them will test your endurance to the limit. In the end the bushes broke up which is why I replaced it.

trim motor

They must be hard to get hold of as ours has a new mercruiser trim pump and motor.

Thanks Guys,
I will let you know how I get on,
I did try SPX and had a similar response although the part number on my pump is MDIANFE/NDABBA.
Paul, I went to look at a P22 in Keyhaven that had a mercruiser pump wouldnít be the same boat would it?
Cheers,
Leon.
