Picked up my 4" exhaust muffler today. Anyone use one of these before? Are they Any good? Bit confused as to how the water is forced up the riser and out the side of the boat. I got the instruction paperwork but still not sure how the water doesn't just flow back to the Perkins.

I've often wondered about that myself. I think it's something we learned in Grade 11 Physics class that has long been forgotten as 'I'll never need that in real life'.

Found this. I suspect they're pretty simple devices.

I did some reading and video watching and it cleared it right up for me. The water doesn't actually flow out evenly at all. That's where I was getting lost. The water enters the lift along with the gasses. Once enough pressure builds a section of water is lifted and pushed out and so on and so on. The exhaust will give off a bubbly type sound and spurts of water will come out and not an even flow as I had first thought.

All makes sense now.

I think your rubber matting looks good, but I have a concern that if it gets wet in the bilge for whatever reason, the mats will prevent it from drying out properly, leading to smells and mold? Plus, if you spill any oil or antifreeze it will be harder to clean up.

I also can't see any limber holes?

Just to make your life easier, once you get floating, have you looked at a sump pan like they put under the engines in Grand Banks boats? Just a suggestion.

Thanks for your post mate

There are three fully sealed and segregated areas with independent high-flo bilge pumps. Limber holes are at the connection between the keel and the rib allowing any water to flow down to a centrally located bilge pump for that particular segregation. One is under the engine, the other is under the bed in the fwd section and the other is in the hull extension.

The rubber is just like a floor mat. I can roll it up or move it if I need to clean it. Its not fixed. The paint I used is Jotamastic 2 pack paint that will guard against mold and mildew and smells etc.

I see it as the safety factors of a non-slip and the effects of helping to reduce sound and vibration outweigh the likelihood of a spill/leak (that's the plan anyway)

I will be putting a pan of sorts that sits under the engine to catch any drips should they occur. Is that what you're referring to as a sump pan mate?

Im not familiar with GB sump pans. Will Google after I send this post reply.

Thanks again for your post mate!

Yes, the "pan of sorts" was what I meant. Sounds like you're way ahead of me. The pan not only helps cleaning up spills but if you do have a spill it prevents the bilge pump from dealing with it first!

Keep going, I'm prepared to read the next 1100 posts about Axe!

IGs (well, mine and Andy`s) have ss pans under the engines, you never get oil stuff in the bilge. Coincidentally, we both created a pump to empty them, using a small bilge pump clipped to a battery if/when needed, I even put an inline switch on mine, just pump out into a container, and dispose. Going to put a long "over the side" out hose on it for when I finally flush the port engine FW side. Useful thing.

G'day folks,
Ticked another couple of jobs of the list today. I can't believe how nervous I was drilling out the hole for the through hull. I've spent so long filling and smoothing to then add some more was making we think twice and second guess myself lol. I was so please when I looked at the core. The pic is pretty self explanatory but I'll add that I am very very happy. It's one thing to keep adding layers but you forget the last layer when you're Working on the next one but when you see a cross section of that process and how it all came together, well it's very pleasing.

Nice work Mate.

An ole' boat builder once told me 'you know you're making real progress when you start drilling holes in the hull you've works so hard on to keep water tight!'

Did you at least coat the hole with epoxy before you put the through-hull in? Ya probably should consider that to keep water from seeping into the ply. Just a thought.

Build on, we're watchin!

Hi mate.
Thanks for the words of support. Yep kinda but I'm going about it a different way. I've not finished playing with this through hull just yet mate. The hole saw I chose to use is 5mm bigger than the through hull. I used sikaflex today on the join between the fitting and the hull surface and assembled it all so When I go back I won't need to move the fitting to make sure the alignment is set.

When I go back, I will remove the ball valve and backing block and pour epoxy in the gap between ply surrounding the through hull. The sika will stop epoxy draining out. I will then epoxy the back block down and fillet the edges and reassemble it all.

That's a good idea. I never thought of doing it that way! I was considering lining the through-hull openings with a layer of glass & epoxy and use a balloon to hold it in place while it cures. I did that with my bow thruster tube, worked great. Just trim after and you're good to go!

Anyhow, great progress! Keep the pics & stories coming!

Hi All ... Its Polling time again.

What's your ideas on what height I should run the main cabin roof too?

I was thinking 2400mm

What's your saloon ceilings set at??

thanks in advance for your input folks

cheers

Hendo

My salon is only 6' 2" and pilot house 6'8". I think 6' 2" is cutting it a bit close for me at 6' tall but it is proportional to the length when seen from outside. You don't want a "box" that appears to sit on deck. I would guess it is a compromise between form and function. You can probably go taller and still look good if you don't have a fly bridge.

How about a round 200 cms= 2metres = 6 ft 6 in. Matt. Then everyone's catered for, including tall guys with hats, and would still look good, as you don't plan on a flybridge if I remember correctly..?
