Capstan: Just caught up with this thread. Impressive and informative! Please keep it coming.

1970s-vintage Gulfstars emerged from the Lazzara's St. Petersburg factory with good bones, if spartan fittings. Individual sail and power examples have made some convincingly audacious trips. Your 43 is great-looking and may already be better than new. Good on ya!

A little time off the rock to visit friends in Wrightsville Beach
The boat now registered and with the name on the stern.
For the 1st time I was getting a little cramped for time, and feeling I needed to get the stbd engine running. I didn't want to tow it back to the mooring the next time out. It was time it was able to do the trip with it's own prop turning.
The exhaust mixers were now the problem and so we made the decision to fabricate.

Week 19
1st time Tailgating. This could be my new hobby!
Rolling Stones concert with the Jen, Bill and Mary, Dave & Sarah, Pat & Carol.
Pick up SS elbows, exhaust wrap and pipe etc. for fabrication of exhaust mixers.
Nuts and bolts
Fabricate exhaust mixers. Wrap with mat and west system. Then soak exhaust wrap with west system. Wrap tightly and cover with tape. Let set, remove tape, sand and re-coat with west system.
Install windlass
Copy old piping for both engines cooling system in copper pipe Oil changed both engines.

Week 20
Spray engines, running gear and water filter housings with Fluid Film. Lanolin based product.
Fuel back in boat + Biobor additive
Fuel sender back in.
Exhaust manifold and mixer back on.
Assemble and reinstall header tank, heat exchanger and piping on Stbd engine
4 gallons antifreeze
Anodes replaced on Stbd engines exhaust manifold and header tank.
Primary and secondary Fuel filters changed and bowls cleaned.

Week 21
Oil filter replaced
Recharge and install 1 battery
Connect battery
Open water intake, prime fuel
Start port eng. oil leak from filter, replace seal in oil filter Restart eng.
# 2 and 5 popping
Run for 15 min # 5 cleared
Very little white smoke
Home made exhaust mixer working very well.
Monday run vessel to Warderick Wells on 1 eng.
No issues

Week 22, 23 & 24 vessel on mooring. Guest and Shark Nationals. Brockville, Canada

Week 25
BM back in marina. Ran to 2100 on return. Oil and water temps good.
Take oil sample.
Strip more of port interior - rotten framing removed.
Remove 2 x fuel hoses to port engine for replacement.
Port fuel filters, 10m, 2m and secondary filter replaced.
Housings cleaned.
Oil filter replaced.
Set up sewing machine and online tutorials.
Write Lauren re up-slip.
Port engine.
Exhaust manifold on. Anode in
Heat exchanger and related hose and pipes in place.
Replace fuel tank line port.
Replace 2 x fuel hoses. Prime

The above brings us up to 2 weeks ago. I will be away sailing at the Worlds all next week in, of all places, Ottawa, so will post probably in about another 2 weeks. That should take us right up to where we will be with the refit at that time.
For the last 2 months the interior looks like a war zone with pieces "N" parts strewn all over. It is definitely a "enter at own risk" job site!
September will be electrical, battery bank, and following wire runs etc.
Planning on hauling in October for a bottom job, boot-stripe and a survey.
Late October will see the start of interior work where we concentrate on the Aft cabin first.
Of course this all depends on Hurricanes, friendly interruptions, Murphy and how we feel!
Will post some more pictures tomorrow.

It`s a transformation. Doing the exterior first was a good move, it gives pride, and encouragement with the interior, mechanical and other systems you are now working through. Congratulations.

Boat is looking great. Can't get over how much you've accomplished in such a short time. I helped a buddy of mine cut off the flybridge on his 1968 Pacemaker Yacht Fish 48 last October. He spent the entire winter and all summer fabricating a new one and he still has several months left to go.

Pictures as promised.
The exhaust mixers - Thanks to Eugene!
Interior war zone!
The bedding, cushions etc. are being recovered and will come back on the boat in stages.
New flooring is ready to go and will be put down as each area is completed.
So there is a rough plan of how it will come together.
Need to replace some framing in the main salon. Does anyone know what I should use for this?
See you in a couple of weeks.
Capstan

Nothing that involved! It is just the framework that is in the main salon from the floor up to deck level and ply sheeting/skin goes on it up to the overhead.
Some in picture attached.
