It looks as bad as most of the others ... This was taken while fitting new foundations for engine mounts. I don't make money by spending it on my own engine room.

The other one is slightly less power but much better access and goes much faster.

I have the worst engine room imaginable. It is, without a doubt, the absolute worst thing about my boat. It has only overhead access. Any dropped tools and parts go down to a bilge that can only be accessed by a trained orangutan with 5ft arms.
I have to disassemble the settee to access the alternator.
I do most of my engine work by feel due to no possible line of sight. Lots of fun when the engine is hot and I'm rolling it a rough beam sea, about to add my lunch to the contents of the bilge.
All the blood rushes to my head when I do engine work. Any contents of the shirt pockets get emptied into the bilge when checking the oil (including my Galaxy S3 two days after I bought it).
The engine and bilge need painting but the orangutan won't cooperate.

I'd post a photo but I'm embarrassed. I'd also need a camera mounted on a remote control arm to get a side shot.

You know why I really have sails? I need them when I drop my last impellor into the bilge and I've run out of bananas.
OK AusCan my definitely not pristine ER should add a bit of balance. For such a small boat I have fairly good access. The original boat did not however. That after engine compartment hatch was a mod done by a previous owner. Cut the floor beam to pull it off. Don't think I'd have the whatever to do that.
Notice my high SS exhaust riser and the engine heat exchanger on the aft bulkhead. See also my steel exhaust manifold. They have a very good track record and I don't like aluminum there.
You can see my fuel and lube oil filters to the left of the exhaust riser and my Murphy Switch to the right of the exhaust manifold. When the coolant gets a bit low it sounds a buzzer. Saved our bacon once.

Neither of those are pictures of engine rooms, but you got the engine part right. Goodonya!

Yesterday I was adding water to my batteries when I noticed a rust stain under my starboard engine exhaust hose. Closer inspection revealed the hose had to be replaced. The ER has plenty of room for working on Sven and Olaf, the two Swedes (Volvos.)

A stand up engine room is one of my favorite parts of a Nordhavn Trawler. Easy access to the entire engine makes working on the Lugger Main a breeze. The art work came with the boat (signed Vargas prints)

Aren't you flirting with "danger" being in the ER with those prints?

Wow..
The N57 I spend time on has a amazing ER... but the signed Vargas prints take it to a entirely new level..

My suggestion is not to refer to that ER as some do as " the Holy place"

If I'm ever fortunate enough to have an ER like that one, I could probably have the artwork AND the real thing. No worries about catching my Admiral in the ER ever. Of course, eventually she'd get concerned about why I suddenly became a maintenance addict.

That's it. Tomorrow I'm shopping for ER artwork. They might just be postcard size, but they'll be my ER art.

I must be getting old. I would rather use the wall space to hang equipment/gauges, switches etc. on then the art work.

It's art. You don't have to understand it, just appreciate it.

Thanks Marty,

That made me laugh. I have seen the same space on other boats used for a nice shadow board for tools.

One of the advantages of the art work is that I always have LOTS of volunteers for engine room checks whenever the boat is underway....

Island Pilot ERs

Here's some photos of the Island Pilots' engine rooms.

The IP535 (53'6") has stairs leading from aft cockpit (not the accommodation) to a full-headroom mezzanine forward of the engines - the work bench is to port and the fuel manifold on the forward bulkhead. Two steps lead down between the Volvo Penta D-11s for total access on all four sides. The pods are aft of the motors. An electrically activated hatch opens to let in light and fresh air and let the heat out.

The IP435 (42'0") has 3 opening hatches in the aft cockpit with plenty of room on all four sides of the engines.

On the other hand, we have NO engine room on the DSe. Instead, the motors are in motor boxes - cramped - and nearly impossible to access anything other than the front of the motors. This was because we had designed the boat for a serial hybrid drive train from Glacier Bay - unfortunately, this system did not perform to our expectations and was replaced with the Steyr parallel hybrid system. We therefore had to shoehorn these diesels into a space designed for small electric motors.

It's time to resurrect this thread!

A few days ago, I had the good fortune to spend the evening with nemier, better known as Andy on N62 Infinity. Andy was in town and had an evening to waste so he knew to call me. Who's better at wasting time than me, right?

We had a great evening of checking out the Sacramento waterfront by land yacht and by foot. We stopped for a beer on the Delta King with the Sacramento River at very high flow. We had a 7 ft rise in the Sacto River in the past couple days. We had huge rafts of debris floating by our bottles of beer. One had a full tree with yards (meters) of flotsam topped by a red and white igloo cooler. It was almost like a sign from God!!

Made me glad I wasn't out there on a boat. We hit another at a nearby waterside trough, then headed for a unique dinner in these parts....a Chicken-fried Rib Eye at California Fats! Yes, it was as good as it sounds!

Anyways........Andy told me about the systems on a N62 and I figure with all that heavy gear, he's probably got an ER that beats all. I'd really like to see pictures of it. He's probably home by now so I'm hoping he gets some good shots for us.

Since Andy and I enjoyed a couple beverages, I snapped this pic as proof to the arresting officer that I didn't have anything to drink with dinner.



As you may have noticed, I completely missed the table. I'm not a regular at this selfie stuff! So if I got a DUI while driving home, at least I had a picture of my accomplice. (I was just fine for the drive home and the law is none the wiser. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

Thanks for a great night on the waterfront, Andy! I hope to see you again in warmer climes.

I was on an N62 a couple of weeks ago, and the ER was pretty nice. Look forward to Andy's pics.

Here is a shot of my port engine from the entry door, and another aft of the stbd engine before the carpet
