Much of the interior is cherry, which we prefer (and is MUCH cheaper) than teak. But given the interior layout, there are infinite possibilities!
Cherry is good too. SMILE

This is a classified ad for this boat. Have some respect and keep the negative comments to yourself.

Back to the original post, it makes me feel emotional thinking this little piece of history was designed by Mr. Beebe and part of his collection of designs. Who hasnít been inspired by his book? I feel the same when I read Jimmy Cornellís books in sailing. Those big men!

What is the thickness of the hull/cabin sides? Also, do you have any idea why the keel coolers were taken out of service?

Are the fuel tanks original? Material and thickness? Any issues with tanks, and do they have inspection port access? Thanks.

Looked up a Finn 8. Almost the same layout as MOJO. Just half as long. LWL envy. Or is this a case of Aussie humor ?? if it is well done !!

Really wish someone would buy this boat so I can stop drooling over the keyboard.

The keel is 1" thick plate. Bottom is 1/4" steel, hull sides are 3/16" steel, cabin sides and roof are 1/8" steel. The keel cooler was used with the original Cat 13000 engine (150 hp @ 1,200 rpm, air start). Previous owner swapped it out for a more modern Cummins 5.9 6BTA. The raw water pump on the Cummins won't move enough water to circulate thru such a large keel cooler so he plumbed the engine to be cooled by sea water but maintained the dry stack exhaust. If desired, the keel cooler could be recommissioned by adding a larger off-engine circulating pump, either belt driven or electric.

Fuel tanks are steel, are original and are integral to the hull. No issues with them. All are located below the waterline. Thickness is 1/4" steel. Inspection port on all tanks.

Thanks for the reply, but request two clarifications: 1) Is the engine cooled by the raw sea water through the use of a heat exchanger? ie; is there raw sea water, or an independent cooling system with only freshwater/antifreeze running through the engine?

2) Does the outside hull plate form one of the sides of any of the fuel tanks, or are they totally separate from the outside hull? Thanks! Scot K.

The engine has a heat exchanger so it is fresh water/antifreeze cooled - no saltwater running through the engine! The fuel tanks are integral to the hull so yes, the hull forms the curved side of the 4 fuel tanks (2 on each side). This effectively makes a double skin hull, i.e., if there was ever a hull tear along the sides due to severe grounding, hitting a container, etc., you would spill fuel but not take on any water.

Confusion here, if the outside hull IS the wall of the fuel tank, wouldn't it be the same thickness as the rest of the hull? ie; 3/16" or 1//4" if it is further down the hull? Not trying to be obtuse here, just trying to get a handle on the boat. I assume the different colored floor plates next to the engine come up, right? Do you have to remove them to service the engine? I am assuming there is no provision for the generator to be coupled to the mainshaft for a get home engine, correct. Probably a dumb question since the generator appears to be in front of the engine . . .

Yes, the hull below the waterline is 1/4" steel. That's where the fuel tanks are located so they are 1/4" steel also. Floor boards on both sides of the engine are easily lifted but essentially access batteries on the starboard side and the watermaker, sea chest plumbing, etc. on the port side. You do not have to remove the floorboards to service the engine. The generator is mounted in front of the engine so it cannot be directly coupled to the main shaft. But, it would be fairly easy to install an electric motor aft of the engine to drive the main shaft via the generator if back-up propulsion was desired.

That boat seems to built right. Potential buyers, don't let the fuel tanks scare you. This was the way all boats were built. skin tanks on one side, not unusual or a bad practice. Seems like a lot of boat for th money if this is your type of vessel.

A little confused here. Why would a lower flow rate be a problem when using the keel cooler? If too small and too high of a rate I get it but not the other way??

I would think the engine wouldn't come up to ideal temp if keel cooler area is too large. I'm sure owner will chime in with correct answer.

Thermostat should get it up to temp regardless. My guess would be that the pump can't push against enough head, so it wouldn't get enough coolant flow and either the keel cooler wouldn't be effective enough or the low flow rate would cause hot spots in the engine.
