On deck Generator ?? Never heard of such a thing. Waste of space and no doubt NOISY! Good move putting it in the bilge.

I need to do something with my counter tops. I hate marble and stone, like Corian, never heard of "pour your own" keep the pics coming..

I like the way you've remodeled everything. You've improved the the salon & galley while keeping the basic Mainship layout. I'm especially interested in the turnout of your poured-epoxy counter tops. We determined that's what we want to do to ours but haven't gotten to that phase of our rebuild yet. I'm happy you're the guinea pig for this project and not me!
I don't see you on the facebook Mainship group. I'm not a facebooker at all but I like it because the format is a group of Mainship boaters that are genuinely interested in learning and sharing knowledge applicable to you and your boat.

That is a CAV injection pump. The engine is a Perkins T6.354.
