Good Luck with your purchase.
Personally I wouldn't worry about the dates on the filters, as you describe the boat it's not been used for a couple of years. When you started it there were no bad signs.The owner was straight enough to service the motors for you so I wouldn't get myself in a tizz over it.
We wish you many years happy cruising, fair winds and safe harbours.

Hi All,

Progressing along. Our haul out, survey and sea trial is next Wednesday. We took our sailboat to Anacortes yesterday for brokerage. Spent 2 days cleaning her up and wiping down all the interior woodwork. Lots of memories. Sad to let her go, but excited about moving up in size and comfort.

Dave

Hi All,

The survey, haul out and sea trial went without a hitch yesterday... found some safety items (wrong fire extinguishers, no CO2 detector, batteries not tied down in the home made box). The statement was "pretty typical looking Taiwanese trawler that is 40 years old. Drove well, radio worked, autopilot worked well. The Admiral was crazy excited. All her fears about "biggness" were settled.

However... While in the aft hole (rudder post and water tank area), the good surveyor was doing his tap test on the transom. About amidships and 1' above the bottom to just above the waterline and 1' to either side... the old hammer made a disturbing sound. It was just off pitch, not a dull (there's really something wrong here) thud. When we took the boat out of the water, we found the smoking gun. The exhaust through hull flanges and hardware were solid rust and 2 of the 3 swim platform mounting arms, all the hardware were blobs of blue growth. The surveyor didn't think much of it.

The dripless shaft seal is beyond warranted life, so I was going to haul the boat for that and while it's out, replace all the hardware on the transome. Question for you trawler owners that know.... how thick is this transom glass and do you think it's a must fix, I.e. rebuild the transom in that one location?

I've got a week to ponder this. Yesterday I dropped $775 to get you this report.

Rest of the boat especially the interior is that "one of a kind" find, (around here anyway).

Dave

Hi All,

I guess I could say she's ours. We completed papers last night with the notary and wired the funds. Next Saturday we get the keys and then the trip home to La Conner next Sunday.

Congratulation. When our boat gets out of the shop, maybe we can cruise the two of them to one or two of the islands.

So on inboards transoms dont do so much. Well other than keep water out and provide support for the swim platform. If it were me, I would fill it with penetrating epoxy and then let the surveyor tap till the cows come home.

"The Admiral was crazy excited. All her fears about "biggness" were settled."

Get the admiral immediately involved in making it fit aesthetically. It will let her become vested and have ownership pride just as your scraped knuckles will give you.

Got her home

Hi All,

I'll conclude my posts about "the adventure begins" with the trip home story.
We got the keys Saturday morning, met the PO, (nice guy), loaded her up for the trip home and went to the fuel dock (my first landing) and got 80 gallons of diesel. Then found our way to the guest dock where we spent the night (second landing). Thought I'd open the engine room up and took a look... diesel fuel everywhere. All the soak ups in the drip tray were solid red. Ran to the store to get garbage bags and soak up pads, went back and spent an hour cleaning and removing all the fuel from the drip pan etc.. Started it up, the #1 injector was spraying fuel everywhere. Tightened it up, cleaned up again and that was that. Engine purred like a cat all the way home on Sunday (3.5 hr trip). My guess is the diesel mechanics missed it when they bled the system, but how no one caught this I don't know.

She is in her new slip (literally... new dock) at Shelter Bay in La Conner, WA.

Dave

Good for you!! She has a new home. I hope to be to La Conner sometime in the next week or so. Maritime is doing some repairs on our boat. When I am in town maybe you can show your boat off to me.

To add to your predeparture checklist: If any mech worked on the engine, check connections

I am my ships engineer and mechanic. From this day forward, I'll hire someone to do something I can't based on equipment, facilities or tool needs only.
The PO had the service done because I wouldn't take the boat with 6 year old filters on it.
