Had some great news today and had to share. The diesel mechanic said the motor is original, never been rebuilt and is in near new condition.

He said the motor has had very little use and has been extremely well looked after despite the shit external condition.

We are going to put a new set of rings as well as new big end bearings and main bearings but only because he wanted to do something on her. The bearings and rings are fine but ill do them anyway.

One thing I am curious about it the gearbox. I have attached a pic of the ID plate. Does anyone know what it is or where I can find out this info.

I am also wanting to know the age of the motor. Does anyone know where I can find this out as the mechanic doesn't have access to his data base as he is on holidays for 8 weeks and is doing this as a favour to me and wants it done in a couple of weeks. Attached is a photo of the engine number plate.

Cheers all

Regards
Hendo

Another day putting ply on the girl. I really love the Bote-Cote high strength glue powder epoxy additive. This boat will be rock solid. Can't wait to get her in the drink.

See pics.

Cheers

Today was the day from hell. What could go wrong did go wrong and as a result was Not very productive at all.

Busted a couple of braces trying to wrap the front which threw the whole front out of alignment.

So i did what anyone in my situation would do. I Cracked the shits and in doing so, totally removed the front ribs and will do them after a bit more homework. Failing that I might just make a 38ft gondola as seen in the last pic.

Oh I also smashed my finger with my hammer and ripped the nail back from my finger so that was tops!.

The only positive thing I did was the temp install of the shower back wall panel and the toilet back wall panel.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day :-/

Hang your hat on the positive and piss on the negative.

Ya made progress and that's what is important!

Fix the ribs and keep at it. Fingernails grow back eventually.

Look on the bright side... a fellow with strength enough to support a motor over his head in his left hand (i.e. in pict from days ago - lol) is bound to make a boo boo now and then. This is first real bummer you've reported and even at that successes were inter mixed. Brits say keep a stiff upper lip! I say laugh like hell and get it on! Good Thangs are on the horizon for you and your family regarding Da Boat!

Come to think of it, it must have been my bruit strength that busted the braces and not the ply lololol

On a side note, I Spoke to Boatcraft Pacific today about the mixture consistency pertaining to your email. They said it will work for the fillets but not the glue so ill email you when I'm back at work next week and make arrangements with you if the offer is still there?!

Thanks for the words of support boys!

Cheers

Hey Bud,
You are an inspiration to us all; Keep at her! She's coming together nicely. Your bound to have the odd hiccup, but thats all part of the learning curve.

Hendo, i.e. "Aussie Boat Mauler" - lol!

My tool offer remains ON for you, Cappy! Glad you found from manufacturer that my Pressure Gun tools should work well on injecting fillets. As you can tell, you and your project have become Star attractions on TF. I believe boaters here that can supply an effort reducing and project-quality helpful tool, or lend a hand in any other way, are proud and happy to do so. It's clear to us all... You've got one heck of a boat-rebuild going on and need as much assistance as possible. What I (we) seek is your butt out on the water in your "new" running boat!

This weekend my Admiral and I plan to spend 2-days aboard our Tolly, getting her primed and ready for 2013 – Yea! Next weekend we plan (hope - weather permitting) to be out and about for 3-days aboard Tolly – Double Yea!!

are you sealing the plywood before you put it on? I know nothinh about this type of construction but i have used steam to make wood take diferent shapes and releave stress before mounting wooden parts. I was wondering if you were mounting the plywood un sealed maybe you could build a steam box and make the plywood a bit more flexible before forcing it to conform to a curve. Then when it drys it will have set with that shape.
Not sure if this idea has any merit but just a thought.
God speed mate

Heya Art.
Thanks for your generosity and support. Ill show your pressure gun to a few mates that are still in the trade and hopefully you'll get some sales from it. I can be your Australian Distributer :-)

I don't know about being a star attraction tho. It's good to see a few regular people commenting and i like it when people leave comments and hopefully I can make some friends out of this.

The main reason I'm going to the effort of posting up here on TF is to show anyone thinking about rebuilding an old timber boat how I am doing it and also show them it's not that hard and to give people a bit of motivation about projects on their boats.

I hope the weather turns out great for you and the admiral. I wanna see pics tho! I don't care if its on here or on your Facebook page! That's what gives me my motivation lol

Cheers mate
