Pretty much, but I'm down to the boat tomorrow, Sunday am, so I'll take some pics and post them. Not a part of my boat's anatomy I would normally think to photograph until now.

Hi all,

Chased the wires for the engine room downlights

Acoustic and Thermal flooring batts in and fitted. Should be lovely and quiet as well as being warm in winter and cool in summer once I stick this stuff in every nook and cranny possible

All Floor panels are now on WOOH HOO ... ... Just have to finish epoxying the joins, glass them and then can focus on the superstructure!

Fuel return line

Hi Hendo Matt, here are the pics of my fuel return line set-up. Much as you sussed out previously, but surely a no-brainer in terms of simplicity.
Sorry by engine room is a bit cruddy. Just rejoice in the fact yours is all shite and briny new. It might change a bit over the next 40 years.

In the first pick the return line is the thinner one come right to left just in front of the heat exchanger. The second pick is self-explanatory showing that thinner tube entering the top of the primary filter to the right of the main engine feed line. The primary filter is actually lower than I thought - more in line with the top of the gearbox.

I agree with Peter B on this as if you start to go higher especially with the length of the boat the proportions will not look right.
6'6" caters for most people.
If they are taller than that they probably can't sleep on board anyway and at that size would probably drink too much and overload the refrigeration.
Just sayin!!!!

Cheers
Benn

I have a son and 2 grandsons that are 6'5" tall. They appreciate the 6' 8" height in Moonstruck's living areas, and yes they can sleep aboard.

Yo, Don - In decision to purchase your really nice boat... on scale of 1 to 10... at what level (no pun attended) did you consider your 3 boys' height?

Art, believe it or not, it ranked as a qualifier on the purchase. When the tower was removed from my Blackfin, the height of the new "T" top was set for their height. It is just not comfortable walking around bent over. Besides that they are bigger than me.

Well, Peter I have had the boat 10 years. They have all been on the boat many times including a couple of cruises over to the Bahamas. Who knows it could be my sons boat one day.

Ok, fair enough. Actually Don, you don't know how lucky you are...or maybe you do. With one son and all our grandchildren over in London, and the other son about to join them, outings with family and grandchildren are very rare and precious for us, and not something it would have paid to use to dictate any specs for the boat, for sure...

Peter, I will post this, and let Matt get back to his thread. Yes, I do know how lucky I am. My oldest son is on the boat with me this week. He is a writer, and can take his work with him. This while my other son is running our business. With my having lost my wife, and them their mother and grandmother we are closer than ever. We realize how important it is. I truly have been blessed with this and Lou. She lost her husband about 10 years ago. Her two and my two grandchildren get along well and are best of friends.

Nah all good mate. I enjoy all input and thread creeps. Keeps it interesting

Its a community built thread. Not a "Hendo only" banging on about a pile of wood and epoxy thread

Post and you shall be heard my friend
