Show us your ER

Engine rooms come in all shapes and sizes, ordered and disordered, clean and dirty.* Some bilges are clean enough to eat off of, others look like a petrie dish experiment gone bad. Here are some older pics of mine showing looms of wires in need of attention.* BTW, that's not rust on the engines...that's "Perkins Patina."

I'll have to bring a camera to the boat for more detailed shots of batteries, water heater, fuel tanks, electrical panel, strainers, etc.* Some of it I am proud of and some is embarrasing to show you, but it will probably motivate me to address the issues in need of attention.* I'm sure the excellent advice from the board will help me avoid pitfalls and allow me to focus on the areas in most need of attention.*

OK, I've shown you mine...show me yours!

RE: Show us your ER

SD,

Don't you have battery boxes on centerline under the floorboards just aft of the fwd ER door? I have 2 boxes there...fwd box for one 8D start, aft box for two 8Ds for house, or now in my case, six golf cart batts. To port, water heater and battery charger, to stbd electrical panel below helm, between engines is 'glassed in holding tank (shown above with the floorboard removed), then aft to water tank between trannys and fuel tanks. No genset, so the walkway is clear from fwd door to aft lazarette. Having never been in another 34 Californian ER, I'm not sure if mine is unique. I guess after 30+ years, they all become somewhat unique.

What's the blue thing you mentioned, a holding tank pumpout line? Mine comes off the top fwd edge below the floorboards, runs immediately to port, then out to the pumpout fitting on the port sidedeck step.

Do you have original fuel tanks? Without dripless shaft logs, the shafts tended to sling seawater onto the tanks causing corrosion. My shaft logs and tanks were replaced before I bought in 2007.

Gotta love the large ER on this boat. I never actually measured it, but it must be close to 12 ft wide and 20 feet long.

*for as often as you have to change the batteries, i cant see why you would want them in the middle... maybe if you had to replace them every year.... maybe...lol

*I like mine in the middle so it's easy to service them every 2-3 months.*

RE: Show us your ER

Seems like many boats (including mine) have the diamond plate ER flooring.* That kills my knees and I had been wearing volleyball kneepads any time I went down there, but recently I bought the interlocking closed cell foam pads which I will cut to size and put down there.** Looks like Flywright has discovered this already and I must say it is a great idea.* Before that just threw a yoga mat down there and figured why not make that permanent?

Will post pics this weekend.

What you can't see from the pictures is that there is only about 4' 11" of headroom, but no problem.* I just had by legs shortened by a foot so I'm good to go.

Love the work shop area and the RO mounted near the sink.
Good thinking.
