The way the boat is configured now it has a 20x17 prop with a total reduction of 3:1, the problem with the yanmar is that the bellhousing is part of the transmission and is very difficult to modify or buy parts for. The secondary reduction is made by walter, they make the v drive assembly's for everyone. The walter reduction is bolted down solid and takes all the prop load acting as a thrust bearing, then it has a extension shaft running to the engine. This setup is similar to an aquadrive as the motor can shake on it's mounts and none of the vibration is transmitted to the hull.

Going forward after running it now for about 5 years and knowing that parts are becoming difficult to source for the yanmar especially the gear, I am starting to think that my last project may be a repower.

The boat could do with a little more power as we would like to head down into the St Lawrence and dealing with currents we would like to have a little extra power.

The motor I bought is an Isuzu C240 56 hp with 155 hours on it. The motor now has a new circulation pump, injectors, balmar 110 amp alternator, heat exchanger, Zf 25m 2.74 gear and some shiny 2 part paint. All into the motor I have about $3500 Cdn. No matter what motor I choose I still need to buy an aquadrive assembly.

This is a good looking tug and a great thread . The new design for living space is proportioned nicely . I would like to add some more indoor living space to William . I think I could do the work but I need someone to design it so it looks right . That's where I fall short . Yours looks really good . It's difficult to make a design look good from all angles . There is always an angle that things just look a little funky but not on this little tug . Keep up the work .

Thanks Pack Mule,

So now all the steel work is done with interior framing and tabbing in place, We built the cabin to allow the installation of 1" insulation.

July became very wet and we decided to make a enclosure and cover it in shrink wrap - Do you know how hard it is to buy shrink wrap in July!

All metal work has been ground and prepped for the first coat of epoxy primer before any fillers.

Very Nice! Had a steel 42' charter boat 23 years ago. Brings back memories. I probably have "chasing rust" nightmares tonight.

Did you blog this refit somewhere or are you just posting up now? Either way I like it a lot.

I just decided to post this now.....Been meaning to do this for some time.

So it happened to be a warm October that allowed us to get some paint on the boat. We used an industrial 2 part acrylic urethane same as Awlcraft 2000. Between inside and outside we used 12 gallons of paint and primer, not including interprotect and non skid.

We decided to try out Kiwi grip for the non skid surfaces, we were the first ones in the Toronto area to try it. Well after 6 years with proper surface prep the stuff is incredible!

So continuing on with this we now have 6 coats of interprotect and bottom paint on the boat, stripes are painted and the window install begins. I went with windows from a company in Vancouver called AJR, even with the shipping costs no one could come close to their pricing.

The interior is well underway with the teak& holly installed and some of the basics have been framed up.

The biggest problem with this build was thinking 10 steps ahead to catch all the little things. It was kinda nice having a clean slate to start with rather than trying to patch up the old stuff.

Andrew,
The fifth picture down looks a lot like Marks Coot. That's a compliment.

Andrew, really nice paint job! Definitely appreciate your attention to process detail. Without quality paint work, the best steel construction is just rust waiting to happen.

Thanks Guys,

I never knew it was possible to use so much paint on such a small boat! The boat has been done now for about 6 years and we have only had to touch up a few little spots from the occasional paint chip.

I think the best decision we made was the drip less shaft seal we installed. I went with the duramax unit and after about 20 hours for break in, there's absolutely no water in the bilge.

your tug

Impressive job Andrew, not a lot of people could do what you have done, I had a Hercules Glen L 24 for 7 years and loved the boat, however I must admit I love yours more and I would very much like to see it in person.
