More on Rainha Jannota

Gents

More pictures from Rainha Jannota.
Now the Heart is in with the generator, day tank, AC's oil/water/fuel lines, Aquadrive (almost). A lot of work at 106 F plus. Too hot and rainy

Enjoy the pics!

She is shaping up. You went with an international engine 110 hp if I remember?

So what is the gen set and hp. Are you still planning on hydraulics.

You seem to look younger what's your secret.

Wow, beautiful, beautiful work.
Three observations:
Engine mounting: I know the Aquadrive is taking the thrust. But are not the laminated stacks of blocks, especially the fwd. ones too tall for their length and venerable to cracking from torque. How are they attached to each other and the stringers?
Engine mounting: Six mounts. I have never seen that. Doesn't it underload the rear mounts effectively making them too stiff.
Stainless steel bolts on your skeg & cutlass bearing housings through wood may be subject to crevice corrosion in the long run and fail without warning.

Thank you for your comments!
Actually the laminated blocks are a work of art. Although you do not see the details, there are 4 x ¾” wood pins crossing those blocks top to bottom including engine stringers. In addition, and that you can see, there are 2 x 5/8” screws. All is gently weted with epoxy glue and resin.
The reason why the engine is so high is because originally it was not planned to use an Aquadrive. By the time we decided to use it, it kind of pushed the all packed forward. We are now thinking about sacrificing the life expectancy of the Aquadrive to bent it some 3 – 5 degrees and, therefore, lower the engine to the stringers.
The 6 mounts are a theory of my Dad who spent 50 years building and building boats. No matter what they say, if your gear weight is equal or bigger than 20% of your engine, it should be mounted! It worked for my dad, it will work for me. Now, despite the appearances, the mounts of the gear are lighter than the engine.

Regards
P.

Sounds like you have covered all bases. Hope you took my comments in the sprit they were intended; constructive...
I have never used an Aquadrive but I have heard that they are less apt to rattle if angled, after all, that's what they're meant for, not just a thrust bearing.

AquaDrives are great. Make sure you get the installation as perfect as possible. Mine had some alignment issues to solve but it turned out good in the end. I had the smallest AD that had only 2 mounting ears. Your 4 mounts will make alignment and set up much easier.

Thanks for the updates.

You may want to submit her as the perfect trawler soon.

Make sure you get the installation as perfect as possible.

The "perfect" instalation will include an engine -shaft misalignment of 2 or 3 deg.

This is a REQUIREMENT for the MB front end parts to be lubed.

Its all in the installation instructions , now!

Esse sistema, com uma sobrequilha protegendo o helice, eu tambem tenho aqui no Brasil na minha escuna.
No meu trawler os helices ficam totalmente expostos, o que acho temeroso e fragil para acidentes.
Parabens novamente e muito sucesso

Holy Friday by mistake I went to the Spanish mass. Did not understand a word, but had English missal so at least I could follow. Sort of like a Latin mass, if you have going to one mass, you basically can follow them all. I will say the Spanish people are more open and friendly community. A mother with 3 children sat next to me, the small baby was sleeping, next think I know I have the sleeping baby in my arms while the mother took care of the other two.

So do you have the English, so us English people can understand

Eu disse que a sua hélice está protegido por sua quilha, como a minha escuna aqui no Brasil, mas a minha traineira que está em Luperon tem duas hélices totalmente e completamente expostos a acidentes perigosos.
Espanhol é semelhante e podemos entender, mas português é um pouco diferente

Brazilians, unless bilingual, don't speak/write Spanish, neither do residents in Lisbon.

I'm sorry, I said that your propeller is protected by its keel, as my schooner here in Brazil, but my trawler that is in Luperon-Dominican Republic, has two propellers totally and completely exposed to dangerous accidents.
Spanish is similar and we can understand, but Portuguese is a little different

My translation was: Something about a helicopter and trawler in the water of Brazil was exposed/training for an accident.

Thanks for the English as it makes more sense.

Look, it's a code )
I said that my Helicopter will go deep in the water if the keel doesn't work as well )
Portuguese is a heroe to build a good boat in Brazil that the import taxes are more than 100% and we'll nedd a lot of import equipment.

Thank you for the comments and the good laughs that Phill generated with his comments.

I am building my boat in the same manner that I saw my granddad and my dad building during my childhood.
