Ok, for all of you interested, here’s a link to a bunch of pictures of the engines, parts, etc. Look through them and let me know if you are interested. We’ll take any serious offers. They’re all in Southern CT.
We’re also putting them up on other sites.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hey Chris, as a matter fact, I do have that jack shaft for you if you want. Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sorry about the multiple posts…
Ok. I’m on a cruise for 8 more months. If no one has done the registry I’ll do it using my vast database driven web site experience.
I just passed Time in a Bottle in Little River SC and am wondering who she belongs to.
What say you one and all?I forgot to add that I directed my sump to the galley drain. Used a dishwasher attachment. Then I filled the hole in the hull.BobThe sump pump on my 424 #8 is under the galley sink and is a reciprocating diaphragm pump. If you have the dopey fiberglass sump forward of the v-drive, you can safely remove it because there's nothing inside of it. Replace it with a strainer and Bob's your uncle.Why are you removing the button? Leave it there.Holy smokes, that's funny!I know, Tor, my friend. I knew this was coming. I know it's part of the flow.I'm happy for you. A new grand adventure!BobWhere is she? You're really doing it?🙁BobI vote for static as well as the boats don't change that often and shouldn't be much of a bother.BobBrilliant. Good job!If it's teflon (as I think mine is) it came as a sheet that was cut to the circumference of the shaft and slid in. Hose clamps applied.
If you think the shaft is wobbling, though, make sure the packing gland is tight or doesn't need new packing. That would be the only other place it could rattle. Well, that and the auto pilot yoke and assembly – I've seen them wear and rattle.
But if you know the clearance around the shaft, a bit of teflon will do the job.
BobWow, it is an old list – at least 10 years. I purchased Pelicano in 2007, hull #8, renamed her to Pelican, out of City Island, NY berthed in Stamford CT for now.
1978 stay sail ketch (or cutter ketch), 'L' galley.
Hope that helps.
