Halmatic Pacific 22

Hi all, Im part of a group of electricians keen on fishing and diving and eating crab and lobster who thought it would be a great idea to buy a rib. We love it to bits.....literally.

During its second season, the heavier of our team, found a spot of rot under-foot when hopping about the rib. Which lead us down the road of ripping tubes off, followed by the deck, a few bits of fine tuning.......on and on and on we go.

It seems there’s a wealth of knowledge with this kind of open wallet, time consuming, finger blistering activities and I have enjoyed looking through some of your projects.

Hoping to get some pointers in due course.

Welcome to the forum.

The spot of rot under foot is quite common but many are at least 25 years old so the decks have done quite well.

There are a few project Pac 22's about but you seem to be cracking on with it so well done.

Ahh, looks like a proper project! Nothing more satisfying that removing old rotten ply and glassing in fresh stuff!

The deck has loosely been fitted. We are looking to re-route the throttle cables that were surface mounted to the console from the engine housing. Would prefer to have cables discreetly hidden within the centre console somehow. I’m still looking for an alternative side mount throttle lever. Oh, and we’ve upgraded from our ‘wooden dipstick’ to a 12v fuel gauge. Posh ain’t we?

Has anyone kept the original single width console and managed to conceal the cables to the lever. I’m looking at the Vetus type side mount throttle lever but have no true idea if it will work......without buying it and having a go.......unless someone has some knowledge of this particular conundrum?

I got rid of the lifting points on the deck and maybe will regret that someday. I have a new sidemount control on the way from the US and will be routing the cable through the console and cable tubes to the engine compartment, two aluminium tubes connecting engine bay to console. I am keeping the wooden dip stick lol as I hate technology

Our transom had delaminated pretty extensively, lots of flex in it and rotten wood unable to be treated. Not being very mechanically minded, we decided to re-laminate with new marine ply and glass back into the stringers with the stern drive propped and still in place. The transom is really solid now, very pleased on how it turned out, but have kept the lifting eyes to secure the A-frame to if and when towing/skiing etc just Incase. The front two could have gone to be fair, but we’ve tried to keep it as original with deck pattern etc.

The next task is to sand the brute and research how to apply interdeck successfully in the cold!

I'd debated doing the same but I decided that the aft ones make quite good towing points. As I wasn't removing the aft ones, I may as well leave the forward ones.

Dont walk on the Interdeck until about June and you'll be fine (even if it appears to have cured)

Trust me on this one. I'll be sanding out a lot of shoe prints and re-doing mine again when its warmer.

Nasty job sanding isn’t it? Don’t want to go back tomorrow night and go again really! Maybe picking a color may cheer me up and motivate me to finish.

Did you use an accelerator with the stuff you used? I don’t think we used Interdeck as such....but an alternative to.

Quite happy with the application, after all it’s a work boat really and will be covered in fish guts soon no doubt!

It's amazing what Sparks can do when they WANT to...

No teeth sucking and "you'll be needing a Chippy, mate" that day.

Ah yes but they are about to discover what a PITA it is not telling the poor bloke building it, that it needs a load of electrical glands putting in it. It's a form of karma.

Hi Rob,

how did you manage to fit the fuel gauge - did you need to cut open the tank to fit it or is there another way?

We're converting a PAC22 Mk II. The deck is in good condition so I don't want to rip it up to get at the tank.

Currently considering a fuel flow sensor, however, these are far from accurate.

Any advice from members would be most welcome.

Thanks!

I am also rebuilding a pac 22. had the tank out and would not even consider changing from the wooden dipstick. There was a reason for not fitting one and its called practising good seamanship and knowing your fuel situation and limitations and nor relying on a gauge .that out of the way a sender could be fitted through the inspection hatch assuming you have one.
