Fuel control panel

We are building a control panel for the fuel system on both engines. A valve to select run or prime.
A fuel priming pump.
An RCI fuel pruifier.
From the RCI the fuel goes to a groco selector valve to choose 1 of 2 Racor 500 fuel filter, then to the fuel flow sensor for the Flow Scan.

Each engine will have an identical panel.

Staircase to flying bridge

There is a staircase in the center cockpit to the flying bridge. Under the staircase is the starboard machinery room and access to the front of the starboard engine and the 2 starboard fuel tanks.

Custom hinges built in house to open the staircase to access the machinery room.

Solar panels

There will be 6 solar panels on the flying bridge hardtop once we get all of that built.
3- 285 watt panels to charge the house bank, two panels to heat water, and a 4th small electrical solar panel that powers the pump to move the water thru the heating panels.

The solar water heating system came in this week.

Progress and all cleaned up for the Mess About

B&B has a fall gathering and it is this weekend.
We cleaned the boat up nicely and you could really see the progress of the last few weeks.
Also this week we got the flying bridge and hardtop designed on Rino.

The galley and entertainment center are coming nicely, along with the staterooms. The wiring and plumbing are coming as well.Click image for larger version

Plumbing pictures

This is the plumbing in the aft head. There is a sink and tub in this head, and the transom shower is in the same hull. The water for the washer dryer combo unit also come thru here as well as the saltwater washdown and the cooling water for the Master cabin A/C unit.

It is all in red tracer hose with ABA clamps.

The outside shower and head sink share one pair of hot and cold lines, and the tub and the washer-dryer combo unit share another pair.

In the machinery room the is both a hot and cold manifold where any 1 leaking line can be shutdown with shutting down the whole system.

Isotherm Freezer

We are installing a 1.9 cu ft Isotherm deep freeze. It is a water cooled system, and per the directions, we will be using the water in the port 150 gal fresh water tank to cool the compressor. There will be no corrosion in the unit using fresh water to cool the compressor, and it can still be used if the vessel is hauled out.
The damn Germans are smart and it looks to be a very quality unit.
