OMG its a boat

well... ive been cleening evreything up got almost all of the boat cleen up to the nav table and the kitchen area. looks better. found 1 flaw is that there is no drane frome the seet storage to the buildge, so watter will build up in there. it eems to have rotted away the bottom of a flore section. the top wood is good, bottom bord is bad thow not a hard fabercation, it was a wee bit too big in the 1st place.

there was a old wooden sail boat that fell to wood worms watcher her get cut up. apparently the old perkens that she had is in good shape. if the inspection of my moter gose bad i may enwuire about this one and see if it will even fit.

also pulld out the main sail today to find that it hase 5 battens, and reefing ties. this is a 1973 raceing boat so may have been the thing then... but good news is its in assom shape. looks barly used, now for the task of getting the jib off the furler and inspecting that.

o yes and finly met my neabor hes a fue places down frome me, hase maby a 35-40 hard to tell. had a pissing contest to see whose boat was closer to sinking... thats right i win :-P his thrue hulls may be as bad as mine but i saved the boat 3 times frome sinking in the marina. hes the one who informed me about the moter.

Sounds great Shadow. Our cockpit lockers have draining issues as well. Only reversed. The cockpit lockers leak rainwater in, then the water drains into the cabin under the side berths, then we sail and as soon as we heel over the water is on the cabin sole - grrr....

Just haven't gotten to replacing the cockpit locker seals yet.

Battens are necessary if the sail has "Roach" that is if the sail is not cut on a straight line from head to clew. Without battens in a sail designed to have them (most of them) you will have no sail shape and very lousy performance from your sail(s).
try spell check!

spell check youre crazy. when i hit that buttion a hand comes outa the moniter and slaps me. i blame the California school system.

well the sail is cut in a straght line i beleve il take a closer look maby i mised something. il take some pictures today.

also having my frend come look at the moter today. he hase a lot of experence with moters not necasarly marine moters but a diesel is more or less the same as any other, just a diffrent cooling method.

Shadow

You are going to have to pull the old ones first so you can see if they match any in production now...some boats like mine did have factory spec-ed bushings that once the Co. went under are not readily available any more once supplies dwindled...but as with anything a fix is just a little ingenuity away.

What size is your rudder shaft..More then likely it is a standard size and the OD is what will be possibly a retro fit.

Shadow - I presume they are bronze bearings? You'll have to get them out and measure them. They are likely pretty standard. If I remember your boat is a Japanese boat? They might be metric and you might have to get them in Japan.

As you work through the retorfit you might have better luck posting in the refit sections of the board.
