I have no idea why an engine would be high mounted except to allow the oil pan to be dropped so an inframe overhaul could be done easily in-place.

Nice feature if the cabin has no roof hatch for engine removal.

Finally got a handle on the bilge water situation.
I mounted a plastic bodied shop vac in the bilge, with the sucker at the low point, and then mounted a baitwell pump low on the side of that which pumps overboard.
So far no automatic controls, just turn it on till it sucks the bilge dry, then pump out the vac.
Its mostly rainwater, the on deck hatches don't seal or have drain channels.
That will be the next project, any ideas out there?

We simply installed commercial aluminum deck hatches.

A big oval over the rudder , and round over the stuffing box for the shaft and for the backing rudder shaft.

KISS

New rubber is available OTS for the Fwd aluminum hatch over the Water tight Fwd compartment.


Sadly we will be putting LUCY up for sale this fall.,

So if someone is looking for a KISS boat to loop, carry a party or go back to work , let me know.

$$ 49K US , east coast delivery , now in Ortona FL.
