That is the "dinghy". I've had it for years, and couldn't part with it. Shaded, protected from spray, steering wheel, etc. It will eventually be featured on the blog in detail. I custom made it from a 1963 aluminum boat.

According to my research the mast/boom combo was rated at 500 lbs. I know of people putting in larger cranes, but thought if the original was designed around 500, it's because he didn't want anymore weight than that up top! It weighs in at 500 lbs. I have added te foam collar etc. to prepare it for tender duty.

After following the FL 120 rebuild thread, I thought this would be a good time to mention that my fuel tanks are 1/2" fiberglass, so they didn't need replacing during engine room refit.

I assume that means they were replaced by the previous owner.

Scotts tanks are factory fiberglass. They made the change to steel the next year or so after Sealife was built.

That's interesting information, why do you think the change was made. I think I would prefer the f/g tanks. I 'm fairly sure the Manatee's all came with stainless steel water, fuel and holding tanks, at least the three or four I've seen where built that way. Not a good choice for a holding tank, ours was replaced with plastic during our purchase survey because the tank top was corroded and leaking.

Don't know. All tanks on mine are glass except holding. I believe it was SS, but previous owner changed out for 40 gallon plastic. I did have alot of custom made SS elbows in various system piping I replaced as well. I have heard rumors off various Krogens with leaking fresh water tanks. Mi believe they crack if filled to quickly and/or the vent becomes plugged. Maybe the same for fuel was the thought?!?

This thread and the one on 42 KK Scout are an interesting comparison. It would be enlightening to get the two owners together to discuss their approaches to refreshing and rebuilding their respective 42s.

[QUOTE=HiDHo;378261]That's interesting information, why do you think the change was made. I think I would prefer the f/g tanks...[QUOTE]

I think it was a production decision to go to metal fuel tanks. As Scott mentioned (he's hull #61 and built in 1984), on hull #66, Krogen made some changes as they ramped up production. The metal tanks were manufactured off the boat and dropped in as the boat was assembled. Our hull is #120 (1987), but the back of the instrument panel indicates it was to go into hull #125. I can't imagine what a zoo the yard must of been when they built and completed 20 plus KK42s in one year for 3 years running. QC?

Here's an aproximate list of the KK42 during the high build years.

1984 16 to 18
1985 20 to 26
1986 24
1987 26
1988 11
1989 3

The change to steel fuel tanks may have come at the time Krogen moved production from Chien Hwa to other boatyards due to his concern over quality. He is reputed to have said "no more Hwa yards for me".

It is surprising he went with the black iron/steel tanks.

I found a 1997 Yahoo post some time ago that is attributed to Bill Kimley, the owner of Seahorse Yachts, that discusses some of the history of Taiwanese boat yards. Not sure how accurate it is and in some cases it conflicts with the Aug 1998 PassageMaker article on "Taiwan's Venerable Trawlers". For example, the PM article attributes ownership of Chung Hwa, Chien Hwa and Fu Hwa to Sinclair Wen. The Yahoo post says the yards were owned by Y.F. Lee. Possibly, they were co-owners or partners.

I had heard the same but I'm not sure when they may have moved. Ours was built, 1987, in a Chien Hwa yard.

Sunchaser, I don't know about Scout's owner, but my refit was driven by time and budget to create a reliable boat to live and cruise on for the next decade. Recouping some of my expenses was always in the back of my mind. I figure the boat will be 40 years old, and we all know buyers like cheap and clean, I think I will be positioned OK to sell. By then it will probably be a cash sale and who knows about insurance by then. So Perfect or better then new was never the goal. Besides she will probably get beat up pretty good with our crusing aspirations and I don't want to worry about my next wax job so to speak.

Not any good photos, I really need to go thru and do all the after/finished photos. I kind of slacked on that, and now I've filled the boat with spares etc. for our trip, so it's a bit more cluttered.

Looks to me that your Nickname should be "McGyver". That is a compliment!
