Who in their right mind would think, painting hoses is okay?

Looks good. I have my port engine out right now and replacing hoses is happening along with the transmission damper. Took the old damper out and it has a couple of areas that are starting to crack so now must be the right time for replacement.

The previous owner said the prior owner had a rebuilt engine installed. Itís a 1997 engine in a 1978 boat. I guess they thought painting everything will make it appear rebuilt?

Do all the necessary repairs and replacements now when you can get easier access to the components. Iím 6í3Ē and I struggle to perform unwanted yoga maneuvers to gain access to certain items.

That is what I am doing. I was going to replace the fuel tank but back issues have me working much less than i had planned on so I am just redoing everything that needs it while I have good access.

It always feels good to put on fresh rubber. Disaster averted.

While I agree with you, many companies and re-builders paint everything. I saw a pic of the engine I am planning to buy for the boat and all the hoses on it are painted. When I briefly worked as an industrial tech, everything I touched with an engine had the hoses painted. I can't say if it helped or hurt but I'm not a fan of it.

Painting a hose hides any imperfection and the paint shortens the life expectancy of the hoses.

Side note; NEVER paint the rubber part of the motor mounts. Destroys the sound isolation of the motor mounts.

During breaks in the cold weather I did some wiring. I connected the gray water pump and hoses and made the electrical connections to the water heater.

I had to replace some of the ground wires. Then when I took this picture I realized I forgot to use heat shrink. So now I need to disconnect and make it right.

I started connecting the starboard and stern water tank freshwater pipes. I decided to use Pex with Sharkbite fittings. They are a bit pricey but easy to work with.

PM, are those lead ingots in the bilge? Are they for added weight down low?

Yes, that's a red rubber radiator hose, painted white, which I removed from the waste line from the toilet to the holding tank.

Yes, those are lead ingots. They where in a box on the starboard side to counterbalance the 100 gallon diesel tank on the port side.

I have learned one or two 45s are far better than one 90.
If you have to blow out a line be it a plugged vent or drain or discharge hose or inlet hose, the 45s make it easier to blow through.

That makes the engine what is known as a "Spray Paint Rebuild!"


If I am looking at a boat and the hoses are painted, it automatically makes me suspect EVERYTHING about the boat. I would much rather look at a boat that is original paint, even if deteriorated, than a hack job with a case of spray paint.

I continued to work on the fresh water plumbing using Pex.

The last picture is the thermostatic mixing valve. Since weíll have grandkids on board we wanted to make sure they donít get scalded when they donít know that the water can get too hot to turn all the way on.
