I would add to that - cover your ER pans with bilge pads and check them as part of your pre-start routine. Any new leaks etc. can be found that way and save you lots of headaches and $$!

True, and it's worth buying them in bulk. Don't over-pay buying just a dozen retail.

If you leave them around the bilge (mine has them under all the engines) you'll be able to see any oil/hydraulic leaks where they start. I keep a dozen stashed as that seems to be a sufficient number to catch most unexpected leaks from things like steering, auto-pilot, swim platform lift, or fuel filter changes.

What he said: my last shipment was 200 large pads for $52 on eBay. With a 44’ boat your should have room to buy and store in bulk. I also buy my oil from NAPA in 5 gal pails.

Welcome Aboard Greenbacks!! Gees, you haven't even asked your first question and already bombarded with answers, can't beat that can you ?

You are definitely on the right track with the pictures. This group loves pictures with every letter. You need nice wide shots because we love to point out inane things. Such as in a picture of a shaft coupling someone will notice that you have a funny looking wire in the background and off the thread goes grounding and bonding.

Lets get to the questions now...

Yup, I do the same. I bought some a few years ago and they may just last me until Iím dead. Nice to always have them handy.

My 3 yr olds favorite thing in the ER is that the engines have Diapers that we have to change.

Teach the 3yr old how fun it is to work in the ER. Take advantage of their height. They will learn fine motor skills and problem solving. Unfortunately new words but consider they would have at school sooner or later.

My 11yo is proud to earn 'bilge monkey' status with various tasks in tight spaces on the boat. Anchor locker dri-dek, running wire for 12v outlet, checking strainers, etc.

Want to send him to “camp” in RI for a weekend. We can teach him some additional skills such as changing head filter shower sump cleaning. Free room and board plus dinner for the adult chaperones.

New to us Transpac Eagle 40 Trawler

Just closed and brought her down from Maine to Cape Cod before Dorian could breeze by and make it lumpy.

Any other Transpac Eagles still on the forum? It seems like a little over 40 were made (of the 40í model) with 20 or so delivered to the US and a handful making it over our way to the East Coast.

After some updates and the end of hurricane season we will be heading south for the winter and perhaps try some relief runs to parts of the Bahamas.

And just to get this out of the way up front:

We now have a big enough boat that we carry almost every major kind of anchor so we can win all those arguments! 😆

Cheers,

Thanks, it has been fun so far!

I didn't know you could design that much space into a 40 footer! Good living!
