Vadim, I found LEDs on Ebay,years ago. From memory they are E27 but check,they are a screw fitting. All 6 at once use less than one of the bulbs replaced.
Jonma, IGs don`t start semi custom, though they may get that way after owners play with them.They were built by the Kong & Halvorsen partnership.Joseph Kong was ex GB and built a business with Halvorsen. Initial build was in mainland China from the late 1970s, the boats were completed in Hong Kong. The result is more GB than "Taiwanese Trawler".
The wiring is well executed, the battery set up is consistent but unusual;on twin engined IG36s, 2 8Ds serve start and house,plus a genset start batt. The Owners Manuals include wiring and plumbing diagrams. A shortcoming imo,is no dedicated house batts, which Vadim`s PO probably tried to remedy.

What is interesting about this fuel system setup is that it clearly shows returns to 4 tanks. The supply on the other hand is some what a puzzle. Any of you seasoned captains may have any idea about it. It is very sad that the PO does not have any idea about it. He never used the boat more than few hours a year.

Hi Vadim,

Welcome to the Trawler forum. Our vessel is a Halvorsen / Island Gypsy/ Kong , 57, I believe a similar design and Build? We have 6 Fuel tanks carrying 6,500 litres and our fuel Manifold is similar.

Return is very simple, just open the valves on the tanks you would like the fuel returned to. In most cases it will be the nominated tanks you are running from or if you want to change trim you can distribute the Fuel / weight back to say one of the other tanks.

On the Fuel supply side can you get a better photo or sketch which pipes go to which valves, as the photo is not clear, i.e. the bottom valve appears to have a feed from either side and I am guessing it is not connected to the other side valves, but only the top valve? If you can clarify this I may be able to assist ?

Regards Chris D Liberty.

Hi Vadim,

forgot to ask , do the tanks themselves have a on/ off valve at the tanks on the supply line ? We have these also , which I assume where put in as a safety factor in case of a fuel loss event in the manifold, filters, etc.

regards Chris D Liberty

Thank you Liberty2015. I finally got it. For some reason or the other all my four tanks are connected together. Out of each tank the outlet with valve come to a T which is looping the entire fuel system. actually it is kind of convenient because you do not have to closely monitor your small day tanks.
Well we start our move from Tennessee to Maryland.
First leg we manage to go to Savannah, GA. 1756 miles, 2 weeks.

Electrical system. Basically any info will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Congratulations - I have an IG 36 classic.

We went through several storms on our way home. I wouldn't say that we were 100% comfortable. But we made it. 2600 nautical miles in exactly 3 weeks.

I can tell you one thing she can take more than I can. Boat that is. everything is what 36 feet trawler was built for, she Is doing and doing well. Fuel consumption overall is 5-5.5 gph. Running both engines and occasionally generator. Speed overall about 9-9.5 knots @ about 1400-1450 rpm.

Now one thing to say on my boat I have monster power engines Lehman Super 225 combined 450 hp's. Why, I do not get it. I did try once to run her @ 2000 rpm. She was trying to get out on plane and the wake OMG. She was producing tsunami. It was fun. It was in in Florida when we were running late for the last lock before the lake Okeechobee.

Great trawler, I like it. Comfortable and stable. Definitely different and slower than any cruisers I owned before. But that is exactly what I was looking for.
