RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

A very nice solution for a generator that is not needed full time. I have a 3000 watt inverter on my boat which handles about everything I do. I've gone a full weekend with the inverter on and had some juice left when I fired up the engine on Monday morning. I would have liked a set up like yours, however, for the peace of mind.

Again, well done.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

IF the interior under the engine is bare GRP, no paint , no gel coat , I would leave it bare.

The reason is in a haed grounding that would be a likely area for the keel to be stressed.

Should the glass be stressed enough to cracked it would be nice to know , and visible with no paint in the way.

My Clipper has the 6 cyl 120 HP Lehman. Same engine as yours with 2 more cylinders. I cruise at 1750 rpm. Max rpm is about 2400

Erik.....I got in very late on this thread, but I just wanted to tell you what an incredible job you've done on your boat. If you ever see me posting pictures of my boat representing such quality, their Photo-Shopped!

Well, here we go again, the second part of the renovations.
The V-berth had to go (orders from the admiral) as she didn't sleep well.
So here some pictures from before and during .... we found of course a bit of rot in the floor ... so a new beam and floor is on the cards.
Then we will move the toilet to starboard, remove the bunk beds, remove the v-berth and put a double bed in (just following instructions)
Hope all goes well .... I think its just money (well??) spend.
Erik

This I will be very interested to see. The dimensions of our 34 up front are not much different from yours, Erik, and we also find the Vee berths the one other thing we would like to change.

Hi Peter,
Good to hear from you again .... Am in Sydney for the moment, flying into Brisbane tomorrow. I think your V-berth much have a little more space, isn't it? ... so if it works for me, should be no problem for you. Sure, just drop in once and a while to se how it's going ... should be finished by the end of the month and THEN we will definitely go for a run he ....

Erik

You're brave Eric...very brave....but I'll be extremely keen to see the finished outcome. Are you working on her in at Bruce's or out on the hard outside?

Wow! That is a fantastic outcome.

Are you a carpenter or similar? I am a citizen Joe handynman and I need to replace a rotten fwd floor but not sure if I have your cojones...
By the way how do you glass up the hidden side of the new ply floor to the hull? Or do you only do the visible side?

Good work.
