The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Well she's finished ......

a few little issues still ... some leaking water pipes ... toilet not functioning ... a bit of finishing touches inside ..... but overall .. happy with the result ..... CFO/Admiral/chief/commander not happy with the costs ... but that's life ... you only live once ..... and if you do it right, once is enough ....

Ok ... put in new toilet ... Admiral is happy !

Fixed a few of the water leaks .... and put some picture of the cabin up.

*Outstanding job young man.** Fix the head and the Admiral will change her mind.

Good luck with her.* Both the boat and the Admiral.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

That's unbelievable Erik and Bridget. The others have summed it up well, but having seen it before most of that was all done, I can add an even bigger tick, in terms of the transformation. She looks fantastic. As to the odd water leak - not hard to see why, a lot of right angle joints - but surely that is just a case of nipping/sealing them one by one. It looks soooo tidy and neat. We really must link up out there some time soon. My wife is finally back this weekend, after staying on over in the UK after I had to return, to see our new grandson into the world. Then on the way back via North America she looked up a cousin in New York and some old school friends in Canada, who go back to a time when she was schooling in India, (long story), but I know she would just love to see what you two have done.
We won't be going out this weekend, but are you thinking of issuing forth at some time in the near future..?
PM, mobile phone, or email me maybe...?

Hey, on another tack, so to speak, I don't know yet if it only applies to your pics, but probably not, but I only just discovered if one clicks on the 'view image' link, (as it invites you to do), it opens just the photo, (one at a time - on Firefox on Mac anyway), but if you click on the photo itself, it opens in a slideshow format - well beggar me....

Great job and helpful photos as well. Makes me tired just thinking of the work.

I noticed in photo 4 what looks like a s/s support on Flybridge right in your line of sight. Am I just seeing things?

That'll be his anchor light, Rebel, mine is in a similar place, but in real life it is not really an issue.

Just done some more work .....*

Added sails on the side, to protect from he elements,*

We covered the helm with vinyl, put new battery switches in from BEP, made a box for the top deck for the generator, can be used as table ....

Very nice.
I'm curious how you fastened down the generator box to the deck. Are you going to caulk around the base to keep the elements out?

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Hi Chip,

We have just secured it with screws in the top deck, the box has no floor ... the generator is strapped to the deck on rubber feet, we on purpose left some gaps, so the water can drain out, if water gets in .... so basicly the water from the deck goes straight under *and back out as the deck sloops to the stern and left and right . * Hope this is a good idea.

Wonderful workmanship! I'm curious, however, what kind of generator is in the box? Is it gas or diesel & is that small hatch in the front for cord storage?

Looks really good Erik. I like that gen box too but fear it may vibrate the cabin top quite a bit. Have you run it yet? Really impressed w the idea .......and the execution!

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

The little door is to get access to the fuel pump on/off switch and the primer .... its a petrol 4 kva ... yes it does vibrate a bit ... but we only use it to make coffee ... and in case of flat battery to charge .... :-)
The*FUJI MICROâ¢*XG-SF3700 Model inverter generator has one of the lowest noise ratings - only 59dB at 4 Metres (less than that of common speech even at rated load), and will run for up to 5 hours on a single fill of fuel when used with the Economy Switch feature.

Based on*HONDAâ¢*Technology, this impressive generator*provides 4.4kVA/3500 watts of power at peak and 3200 watts at normal load*(vs. other older designs rated at only 2200W) and weighs only 28Kg. Inverter technology makes this generator ideally suited for use with sensitive electronics (e.g., computer, fax, printer, telephone, stereo,microwaves, all motorised devices) because the generator produces a clean sine wave of energy that results in no surging. To prevent any possible damage, the unit features an Oil Alert which causes shut down when the oil drops below safe operating level or in the event of being tipped over. The Remote electric start allows the ultimate convenience, where the generator can operate unattended at a distance from the application and can be fired up or shut down at the press of a button.
