Winter Dock Upgrades

It was time to upgrade the gang ramp to my winter dock as I felt it was becoming a safety issue. I also put up a new gazebo.

Like the improvements, you really didn’t have to do that for us to stay a few days. But much appreciated just the same. LOL!!!!

Now THAT's a project. It's a boat project kinda sorta. Gotta be able to get to the boat to the other things. Looks very nice. Having done similar projects I can really appreciate the amount of work that went into it.

I bought a pair of fiberglass prop tunnel extensions from a fellow 38 Bayliner owner who builds them during the winter. They direct the flow down from the props, cuts down on prop wash and swim platform dragging in the prop wash. Owners who have installed them report a 1 to 1.5 knot increase in speed at same rpm. The bow will stay down without tabs down. Marina is supposed to haul this spring to install, here is a picture of someone else’s with aluminum extensions. That was my 1st plan to have a local fabricator build a set with aluminum, I decided to go with the fiberglass after reports from other owners who purchased them. Click image for larger version

We've had the boat for 4.5 years. Rebuilt the raw water pumps last year so it was time to attend to the rest of the cooling system.
- New coolant and raw water hoses & clamps
- Pull and descale both HX tube bundles
- Pull and descale the exhaust elbows
- Clean the engine oil cooler HX plates
- Sandblast & paint the HX bonnets, oil cooler covers and coolant tubes
- Replace all zincs
About 70% complete, can't wait to light the old Cats and check for leaks.

Desperately trying to get our liveaboard ready for the loop starting in April. Been working non-stop since September. All major projects written up at the link below. These do not include over 100 other smaller items on our "must do" list. We're down to only 7 mandatory items left!

https://n37scout.wixsite.com/travels/projects

Sorry, unfortunately most of the projects are very specific to our Great Harbour N37.

Doing all work on a skinny finger pier while living aboard makes things interesting!!!

Our Allweather doesn't have a rack or anyplace to store a dinghy onboard so we tow it. Maybe a rack is in the future. The boat is designed by: https://www.jbwatercraft.com/unicat-2-4 One reason I chose it is because it is very light and should tow with minimal drag and tow straight.

Maple ply with oak trim. The hard part was bending the hardwood. It is radius edge, smooth bottom, epoxy treated with spar verathane top coat. Recessed in some threaded inserts and it bolts right onto the aluminum adjustable base. The bird's eye pattern really came out with the gloss coat, so I opted to let it be the star instead of covering it up with a map.


Thanks for the kind comment!
