Repairs so far this year

So far this year:
<ul>[*]Genset zinc replaced[*]150 blisters repaired and bottom painted[*]Port and stbd rudder logs replaced[*]Both rudder shafts replaced due to crevice coorision.[*]Air Cond and Waste tank thru hulls replaced[*]Stbd rudder cracks repaired[*]GPS sensor replaced[*]Windlass replaced[*]port engine impeller replaced[*]port fuel sending unit replaced[*]Port and Stbd fuel tank selector valves replaced[*]A/C pump replaced[*]A/C rear circuit board repaired[/list]
...........and only 2 1/2 months to go

well there were a few more but these were the main ones.

I don't even want to know what all this costs.

Fuel at 1 mpg is by far the cheapest expense so far.

And I just noticed my stbd tranny pressure is fluctuating at cruise rpm.....

Sorry to hear so much work has been needed. At least when you are done she will be hopefully running good!

Actually the boat is running good. Most of the items repaired or replaced where to bring the new to us boat up to what I wanted.

I hope the tranny issue is a bad pressure sending unit.

RE: Repairs so far this year

Short list:
1. April: Raw water pump replaced.
2. August: Hurricane Irene busted up my swim platform. Repairs on hold.
3. September: House and starting batteries replaced.
4. October: Currently in the yard for repair of broken shaft coupling, hoping repair and shaft alignment are the only problems.

Boat bucks are adding up....

RE: Repairs so far this year

This year so far----

Change injector pump oil on both engines.

Replace engine raw water impellers.

Overhaul propane system connections in the propane locker.

Replace very old aqueous foam fire extinguishers in the main cabin with a new, large CO2 extinguisher and mount.

Install new drain fittings in the fiberglass riser muffler for each engine (this was the only job hired out).


To these must be added the continuing refinishing of the boat's external teak but I don't view that as a repair or even work as I enjoy working with the wood.

*Man I have one 8D for my house I run a TV to watch movies The Espar and the Garmin almost continually. I have yet to run anything down to a need to charge.

Do you anchor out a lot?

The way I cruise is usually go where I'm going. Hang out for the weekend. Back to the harbor.

I have a Balmar 75 to charge with.

I also have a Link 20 batteries monitor. I love the thing. Tells me everything I could ever want to know about my batteries.

Have you ever run the 8D's down?

When we used to have an 8D for the house power we ran it down to just about nothing one night by forgetting to turn the engine room lights off.* After that we installed a bright yellow light on the DC panel on the helm console that goes on when the engine room lights go on.

Last year we finally got rid of the boat's two 8Ds and replaced them with six 6vdc golf cart batteries.* Each 8D battery box will hold three GC batteries so we didn't have to modify the battery boxes or the boat's wiring at all.* Two pairs of the GC batteries are wired to be our house battery, which provides twice the amp hours of an 8D.* The other pair of GC batteries are wired to be our start battery.

Getting rid of the 8Ds has been one of the best improvements we've made to the boat in the 13 years we've owned it.

RE: Repairs so far this year

The light thing is a great idea.

*I have done the same it required running some x-tra wire but I have a light for every system on the boat if a switch is on a light comes on on my main panel.

The light even comes on when someone flushes the toilet.

I used small LED's the main cost was running all that wire.

When I shut the boat down all I have to do is make sure all lights are off. That way I know for sure all systems are shut down. I used mostly the pull on switches. I hated having to go push every switch to be sure the power was off. I used LED so as to not burn out bulbs and leave a system on by mistake. A red light means hot no light Not

RE: Repairs so far this year

We always turn all the boat's DC power off when we leave it. So it's just a matter of running a finger down the vertical row of breakers to make sure they're all in the off position and then turn the battery selector to off. The only thing that stays on is the AC side, and over there only the refrigerator remains on except in the winter when we leave the port and starboard AC outlet circuits on for the heaters. The smart charger part of the Heart inverter stays on, too, of course.

The work is being done by KKMI in Richmond, CA.* Seahorse reimbursement is*to be determined, but not much.* The builder is in China and the warranty is limited.* I knew this when purchasing the boat there to save several*tens of thousands in construction costs.* John Deere*is paying for the water pump replacement.* At the very least I expect Seahorse to reimburse for applying primer on the hull bottom it missed during construction (there was only bottom paint on steel rudder and hull*areas covered by cradle during construction).* Might get partial reimbursement on other issues.

Likewise mine. However, my Xantrex mystery meter still shows a .9 to 1.2 amp draw, while showing batteries having full voltage and in "float" mode, with EVERYTHING switched off.

*Mark:

Your anchor locker drain problem has been on my mind since you first mentioned it.

I blew up some old pictures of my "drain", both running and out of the water. Note how far up from the boot top my drain is compared to yours. It's even out of the water when "running". (Although you can't see it in the Running photo, you can see how close it is to being on the same horizontal line of the splash rail.) It is also facing aft as is yours.

Just saying.
