Specifically in regard to this project, I am glass half full as well. Larry and Lena, you are clearly pros in terms of both the boating escapades and boat care. I suspect that the outcomes of this project will be far more influenced by your good conception and planning of this undertaking than good luck, though I wish you that as well.

Bravo for an inspiring project and post,

Larry, adding my thanks to you for sharing progress and details on this project. As Donna noted, it's one of the things everyone with an old boat (or considering buying one) thinks about. Wishing you a smooth and uneventful yard visit.

Also good to hear your positive assessment of St. Johns Boat Works. I learned recently that the yard had changed hands, and wondered what else might change. So far, so good!

Will do Scott. If you see us doing anything questionable, please let me know. You've been though most of it, successfully, on a KK42.

Thanks and yes, ~3 weeks ago the boat yard changed hands. We haven't met the new owner but so far he's hands off. All the day to day personnel who I'm/will be dealing with are still there and nothings changed, yet... We're keeping our fingers crossed. The yards real busy and Hobo's small potatoes. I keep you posted.

Yup. I'll be using GPO3 to isolate the tanks from the hull, moisture and fiberglass. This is where some extra time/detail/extra $s will be spent. More on this later.

There will be no excuses accepted even if written notes are offered from mothers, mechanics, doctors, or under takers. Those not attending will face serious consequences yet to be determined.
Shit! No excuses? You are a motivator. See you in February (if not before).

Very Best Luck to you!

I wish you an uneventful repair with no surprises. Thanks for sharing your experience with this. I expect your repair / refit to be a demonstration of a thoughtful way of doing this. Could I ask how the leak presented itself to you?

Did you find a way to include a drainage sump in the new tank?
Good management and good luck with the work.

Hello Larry,

Looks like you got right to it. You were right about the engine fitting through the transom door. Did the perf alum arrive OK and intact?

Take a look here for engine mounts:

Cushyfloat Product Range - Trelleborg IAVS

Reasonable prices and good performance.

Best of luck and may the Boatyard Blues pass you over in a hurry

About an ounce over a week showed up in the inboard forward corner, near the site tube. The tank had about 225 gallons in it. I emptied all but 50 and the leak stopped. Maybe a seam? I'll know more later this week.

Here's what Bomac is doing plus a new oil pump and a couple other things.

The transmission will also be over hauled.

No. The boat design does not allow for it. Short of modifying stringers and redesigning the tanks, we didn't see a way. I'll post some pictures later.

Thanks. It arrived Friday afternoon and looks good although I haven't opened up the pallet yet.

We are using powder coated AL sheets from Soundown to cover the insulation and side walls for the engine room redo. http://www.soundown.com/Section%202%...20Aluminum.pdf

Ill look the engine mounts this week.

Whats Bomac charging for the rebuild?

A while back I bought an elbow from him and it was cheaper than everyone else. But recently I have been priced with what seems like way too high of a price for an injector $750 if you dont have a core (no one on here believed me ), and just last week a cupro heat exchanger was priced at $900.

Oh and what is GPO3? I'll be cutting one of my tanks out in the next week or so, soon as I build up the courage...
