Delin, re the posting of thumbnail pics.* Using the advanced editor, instead of clicking on the little tree icon for insert/edit image, scroll down to the bottom and click on the 'attach image' box, just below the 'Email me whenever there is a new post to this topic' box.* Then when the browser options boxes (plural as there is a list of blank ones), called File Upload appears below that, click the cursor in the top one, then click on 'Browse', which takes you to your photo file, select the one you want, then click on 'Open' and it's file name and file location is added to the box.* You can then add another if required and so one down.* When you have all the ones added you want, then click on 'Upload files' which is right at the bottom, then, once you are happy with the edit, spelling, no typos, etc, select 'Submit Post' and Bob's your Uncle, they appear.... Sorry to inflict myself on you, but did that just to go thru the motions to illustrate.* Yeah, not a pretty sight....

*EUREKA!!* It worked.* And to think I make my living in software design and development.......

RE: Show us your ER

I don't have an engine room. I have an engine compartment. Good thing my engine is small. In the 1st pic see the floor support cut away by a PO. Nothing seems to have suffered from it's loss. Notice my heat exchanger is on the aft bulkhead. Normally it's inside the exhaust manifold but I don't like sea water in/on my engine. Has caused problems before. There is no sea water on/in my engine. In the 2nd pic see the oil and fuel filters on a custom bracket. I have a 500 series Racor also. The custom SS high rise exhaust riser is/was money well spent ($750). By National Marine Exhaust in Marysville Wash. In the 3rd pic see the steel exhaust manifold to port. Since there is no heat exchanger inside there's a large volume of coolant. The orange and white thing on the side of the exhaust manifold is a Murphy Switch. It senses the coolant level and when it's a bit low an alarm sounds. This device saved our bunnies already. At the upper right is just a winter heater.

One of my tasks will be to figure out what all the specific valves,*wires and tubes are for, as well as hoping I'm not too fat to enter and maneuver in the engine compartment!

RE: Show us your ER

It's still a work in progress but I am getting there.* Finished painting the fuel tanks and plumbed the new filter/fuel polishing/transfer pump.** Had to rebuild 3 stringers, completely rotted away.* Tanks are orginal, good shape except the tops rusted, cleaned them and* I think I can still get a few more years out of them.* The steel was VERRY Thick!.

RE: Show us your ER

I hope to have everything done by the end of summer. Things still left to go:
1. Haul out, bottom job, new prop shaft, service thru hulls, replace rotted away rub rails.
2. Build new cabinets for galley, et-al.
3. Build new setee with storage and space for air conditioner air handler.
That's about it for the major stuff left to go, here are a couple pix of the interior that is completed so far.
Pix of the aft SR and Head, Fwd head, Electrical distribution, and Salon. Built a complete new closet on the starboard side in the aft SR,
that is the mirrored doors, the doors below the aft extit door hides the washing machine.
Built new medicine cabinets for both heads and redid the formica in both as well.

Very nice work, Bill. I wish I could do woodwork like that!

I see a lower helm, but no wheel.* Is it removable?

Wheel is off for it's own protection. Both lower and upper helm have nice varnished teak wheels so keeping them safe while work is in progress.

The engine room would be a lot less cluttered and more room if there was not those two big green*metal thingies running smack dab in the middle of the room.* The*hight is about 6 ft, there is a work area between the to big metal things, and there is a walk way on each side for easy access.* But after*seeing Deflin purdy engine room its need re painting and carpeting.* But I do vacuum and dust once a month.

Well, I can't show an engine room, because there is none - room that is - only enough to crawl round all sides and one can stand up through the floor aperture in certain places, so not too bad to work on, but can't get far enough away to get a photo except from above.* So here she is after new heat exchanger and exhaust injection knuckle and oil coolers, all nice new and red, shamed me into degreasing and painting the rest of the engine to match.* Went out for the first time in 4 months (due to delays getting parts etc) and she ran like a dream - all good again.

As an aside - nice to see not all ERs are as pristine as...well..the eat your breakfast off variety - made me feel a bit less infra....
