Hi all.
Not much to report as I've been away for work. Actually it's been really hectic TBH. At work we had two ships snap their moorings and crash in to bridges and themselves in a really bad storm, then that night I flew to Dampier for a week to help set up the port for a new contract then I was home for the weekend then flew to Sydney for a National conference and flew back home yesterday morning.

I got a call when I was away about how the tarps blew off in the storm and rain was filling my bilge. Well it filled it alright. I went down yesterday and sucked out 1125L of water (45 wet and dry vacuum loads) blah .... Welcome back!

Okay so today I went and fitted the raw water pump V3.0 this morning. Came up pretty good. I'm Glad because I was ready to toss the piece of sh!t if it gave me grief.

I cleaned the bilge and have a couple more little tid bits to do then i'll finish painting.

Cheers
Matt

Matt, couldn't you run the engine, and cool it by using its raw water intake to suck out the bilge...most of it anyway..?

I've already sucked it all out. I did that on Thursday! I used my 25L wet and dry vacuum. Had to empty it 45 times, hence where I got the total from. I wouldn't run that water through my heat exchangers anyway. The saw dust, screws, grinder metal dust and debris will clog up my gear.

Hendo, you are too kind! It is sometimes much easier to see things from afar as You can pick out a single tree rather than being baffled by the forest. Sorry it has been so long to reply but I have been out (boating!).

Forgot to mention, the pump looks much better, you will be a lot happier with the new set-up. One small quibble...cough...if the engine mounts sag or you need to align the engine in the future, the pump will be misaligned. Sorry, just saying.

Nice job, pump mount looks great, don't mess w/ it anymore and move on w/ other projects. I should tell myself the same more often.

Keep her clean? Lol sure, once I've finished building it mate. Until then the thought of having anything clean is a dream :-)

Yes, Matt, I realise you had already done it the hard way, but now I understand why you could not use the engine raw water circulation to do the same job. Maybe if there is a 'next time'..?

I hope there won't be a next time of course, but it has often occurred to me that having a good Y valve and an accessory side intake into the engine raw water pump, with a bilge strainer at the end of a flexible intake extension, could well be a good extra powerful high volume back up bilge pump, (once the bilge is all cleaned out of course, and not a new idea, I know), but I never got round to it. Setting yours up like that now could pay dividends both for now, if you had a repeat of rain entry, and for later when out on the water..? Just a thought..?

You might have taken me wrong there Matt. I was sympathising about having to suck it out with a wet vac being a pain, but understood why you had to once you pointed out the bilge was full of, debris as well as water.

The other thought re making the engine raw water intake an optional emergency bilge pump is a recognised practice, but one which few ever take the time to set up. I thought now while in the building phase might make that a worthwhile consideration, is all...
