Quick update....Lifted the sponsons on tonight.....surprisingly easy

We'll be re-using the ali strips to fix for the most part but the front /bow section was pretty pitted where it had held saltwater behind the rubbing strake which overlaps it......We are replacing this section with stainless (visual difference between ss and ali can't be seem as its hidden behind the strake, with a view to replacing all the strips for stainless in the long term /next few years.....but seeing as it aint broke at the moment......

We also lifted the engine out again as we were about to do the oils and decided to drop the sump and give it a good clean out (working on the basis that the lift pump can't get all the oil out).....will drop it back in when we've done /with new oils in.....Its really simple to drop in and out - 8 bolts and the prop shaft basically (lifted using the teleporter on the farm).....tempted to whip it in and out annually tbh, will be easier to keep the bilges spic and span when its out.....have taken a quick shot of the bilges and engine mounts painted out.....have also decided we will be installing a small 500 gph bilge pump in the engine compartment itself as well as the two 2000gph pumps (one maual one and one on an auto switch) in the bilge section behind....

Thanks for the comments guys

Collected the console, pods, engine box etc etc from the shop today.... Went with the original black in the end .....all looks great.....hoping to start refitting middle of next week, but am on charter North Wales beginning of week then Gloucester end and into next week.....

The boat has had to come outside now as the A frame is too big to get in and out of the barn.... A frame back on as well as stantion post and Platfrom above the jet etc....

Grabbed a couple of shots with the sponsons completed.....including the new transom patches.....several hundred holes drilled, several hundred screws back in (thank goodness for right angled power driver /drill! and several hubdred blobs of sika behind each one!

I'm in the process of bolting tubes on my Willard (3/4th of the way done...129 of 172 drilled & bolted). Should I be putting sikaflex bring each?????

Thanks!

She was called 'Pacific 1' in the Met, and 'Shearwater' in Penzance....

The latter worked well for us as my boats are always named after coastal /seabirds (i'm a closet birder).....

BUT, there are LOADS of Shearwater's about locally including a Jet RIB.....So, she will be called 'Alca Torda' (pending a bit of a ceremony etc for changing boat names).....

I guess it depends on how they are fixed /what into.....The pacific has a hardwood (teak) plynth which you screw into (and through)..... Just wanted to make sure it was properly sealed from water ingress..... But then I have gone a bit bananas with sealing every hole and cut everywhere....My hands have been permanently covered in Sika and Epoxy since last year

The rubbing strake which runs the length of the boat is bolted on using threaded sleeves moulded into the glass....We put sika in these when we replaced them, but there wasn't any in when we removed it.....so I guess it isn't def necessary.....Sorry I can't give a definitive yay or nay.....

Beautiful job so far and thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to see ing more pictures as you progress.

I know Willards have no wood, so I might be ok there...but there was some sikaflex on the skirt at the holes of the new (for me) tubes. I'm torn because the US Navy quite obviously put some sika in each but I'd rather not undo, restretch, rebolt all that I've done...it's been a pain so far!

Sorry to derail your thread!

And a couple of shots of the Yanmar 6LY2a STP before it goes back in.... The 'feet' haven't been painted (yet) in the pic.....

It's a big old lump.....

I want to spray /maintain it with a light oil (WD40 type?) to keep the surface rust at bay.....What do people use /whats recommended? Esp. the Turbos on these seem to rust up quickly from what i have seen.....

I'm planning to get some absorbant matting for beneath it.....is this the best stuff to use /a good idea (Inboards are new to me).....Thanks

Oh, and some more livestock shots too

I use some stuff called "Shield" comes in 5 litre cans. Stick it in one of those little spray bottles like you use for brake cleaner. Leave for couple of hours to dry and it leaves a nice waxy film over everything.

Quick google isn't producing the goods, next time I'm up the shed I'll get the manufacturers name.

ps cheep as chips

Quicksilver Corrosion Guard, the Evinrude equivalent or Waxoyl work very well. Don't go spraying up the turbo though if it gets really hot!

I'd be interested in the 'shield' manufacturer name too.
