Re: Need Help Islander 32

The exhaust pipe (fumes) that's coming out if the Volvo MD7 and wrapped in insulation is falling apart.
Any ideas what to replace it with?
I have a marine mechanic who'll start the engine but I need all the parts to be ready.

Other than the water injection elbow the rest of the exhaust piping is usually threaded black iron pipe, mainly for order of sacrificial metals reasons. You want the pipe to rust before the expensive fittings, like the water injection elbow, although many people make their own injection elbows your usually better to to use the original cast ones, they cost more but last longer.
The "insulation" is usually high temp header wrap, you can find it at any auto performance store or online from one of the car performance suppliers.
Does the rubber hose portion of the exhaust slip on to the end of a pieces of pipe or did they do it correctly and use a hose barb fitting?

Re: Need Help Islander 32

Hello,
Sorry for not replying yet. Between a full time job, a part time job and repairs you don't even have time to read CF!

While cleaning the engine compartment I found this cable with a "ground" end literally floating around. It is bolted to the back stay. One guy advised to discard it, another to reattach it ASAP.
Regards,
Michael

Trace that to see where it goes. Im living aboard now and am removing all the dead end wiring while I wait for warmer weather, 14 degrees last night brrrr!

I'll be the finish carpenter on a Block island 40 next week, I'll probably start a thread with pics as I go on that.

Thanks and I will get ahold of you soon as I will be in Florida for the winter.

Markus

Re: Need Help Islander 32

I just joined this group and
saw this thread regarding an Islander MK2 which is the type of boat I purchased last year.
And since I am working on it right now there are many questions going through my head, so I am glad to see that there are at least a few people with the same type of boat.

An immediate question would be "Where are the keel bolts?"
All I see is the quite shallow bilge with no sign of attachment of the keel.

Is the keel glued on?

Re: Need Help Islander 32

Rumor has it that some boats have the keel and the bolts encased in fiberglass and one will never have to worry about rusting bolts and a loose keel.
Some stories sound just to be too good to be true, but maybe I lucked out and have one of those boats, but I still hope for a knowledgeable Islander owner who could shed light on this issue.

Hey Seaboat:

YES, it is an encapsulated keel, NO BOLTS to fuss over.

My boat is a 1977, sat for 16 years by PO,
and working on the restoration.

let me know if you have any questions,
I have done some great upgrades, that didn't cost a lot of money!!!

you have a GREAT BOAT!! well reviewed,,

cheers,
MOCHA!

Re: Need Help Islander 32

That is great news!
I really couldn't imagine where the bolts would be, the shallow bilge is all glass. The shallow bilge also makes the boat inside a bit wet when heeling over, it's hard to pump the bilge out since it is so shallow.

Of course I have tons of questions, I am just going over the whole boat, wiring, propeller size etc.

What are you doing to your boat, cosmetic stuff or serious renovation/rebuilding?

Uwe

Re: Need Help Islander 32

hey Seaboat:

I'm not sure why you would have water in your bilge. I get water down the mast in a storm that end sup in the bilge, and that's about it.
I think the bilge is enormous, shown are 2 compartments, there are 3.
30 gallons +/- ??? Taste it to see if it's salt or fresh water, depending are where the boat is!!

I have done a lot of cosmetic improvements, as well as running rigging,
high pressure water lines, and re-painted decks and topside...

Our boat sat for 16 years behind the previous owners home. Owner bought the boat, did some upgrades, new main, etc, has a 93' Yanmar 3gm30f with less than 100 hours on it. Guy sailed home from the broker with his wife, she drops dead next day, and he NEVER gets on the boat again. Only paid for a mechanic and a diver for engine and bottom maintenance.

Re: Need Help Islander 32

You might have a different bilge shape.
Mine is at most 6" deep and the bottom of the bilge is large and flat.

Where is the water coming from?
Well, it ain't a ton of it, but the pump does not get it all because of the shape of the bottom and when the boat heels it sloshes easily thru the floor board into the carpet.
Maybe I should reef earlier and not heel so much.

I did find one small open thru hull fitting at the stern which will let water in under certain conditions. Other than that there must be water coming in thru the shaft seal.

The water has degraded some of my floor stringers. They are still ok, but it would not be a bad idea to replace them eventually.
Just a lot of work since some of the furniture has to come out...

Uwe
