Howdy, I知 new and have a trawler! - Kha Shing Spindrift 40

Good Day!
I知 new to the forum and will be picking some brains as I do a cosmetic and mechanical refit of my 1987 Kha Shing Spindrift 40 Sundeck trawler that I bought a year and a half ago! It has twin TAMD41A痴 by Volvo Penta with only 900 hours on them. However, she came from a home with parents that each worked two jobs and was a bit neglected.
Sooooo... I致e got a bunch of projects:
Replace the interior carpet with Waterproof Luxury Vinyl that will be glued down. Replace some dry-rotted vertical ply surfaces and paint white.
All-new canvas.
Go through the motors:
Clean heat exchangers, oil coolers, replace crankcase filters, rebuild raw water pumps.
Remove old electronics, plug huge holes, replace with consolidated units.
Figure out how much fuel is in my tanks.
Remove teak on foredeck, texture and awlgrip.
Varnish teak round-the-boat rails and rehab some interior varnish.
JFC, there痴 quite a bit to do.
I知 Located in Coronado in Southern California and am also associated with a realtor woman who calls me her husband and children that call me daddy.

Welcome aboard. Congrats on your new boat. Take a look at Kiwigrip for the deck nonskid. It is way easier than awlgrip and the fiberglass finish does not have to be a perfect since Kiwigrip hides minor imperfections.

You can buy boxes of 800-1000 O-rings in many sizes on Ebay. Some claim to be oil etc resistant, but heat/coolant resistant? no idea. I`ve heard the marina mechanic cursing OEM Volvo cooling system O-rings, and the cost.

Our previous boat had a Volvo that ran fine for five years before we sold, and she has been running fine ever since (another 6 years). And they are quieter than most.

Welcome!
I missed my family at first. But the guys at the o-ring shop and, especially, the stainless fastener shop (Tri-City Bolt & Screw) are like a new family to me.

“Sight glasses?”

On my boat, they are clear vertical tubes of some really thick plastic. They have a valve on the top and bottom which you open to view the level of fuel in the tank, and then close (only have them open while checking).

They are useful as a general indicator because they don’t reach to the top of the tank or to the bottom.

Welcome aboard.
The deck for the carpet isn’t teak parquet or teak and holly? Don’t glue over that.
