Hi to Everybody from Hartlepool, UK

Hi to all, I first joined this site in February this year but never got around to using it (or took this long to pluck up the courage to write anything). So its about time I introduced myself and my partner (don't want him feeling left out)

Between us we owned, a warrior 35, and a Westerly Pageant. These were then sold, and early last year, we purchased "Someday" our CSY 37, from Andrew. He had sailed her across the pond (singlehanded) to Scotland in the UK. Sadly due to his family commitments (new baby) "Someday" was left on a mooring, slowly deteriating.

She was in a sorry state, requiring alot of t.l.c. We had only 3 weeks, to get the bare essentials ready, before we had to move onboard, cleaning, scrubbing, re-wiring for 240v lights and sockets, re-plumbing gas, repairing the cooker, fitting new toilet.

16mths later on, and we are still working on her re-fit. Only yesterday the calorifier was removed, awaiting a new bigger one (so I can have longer showers! hush hush)

I would love for any CSY owners to get in touch, especially CSY 37 with perkins 4108 !!!!!!!!!!!! as we may have a prop problem.

Seen as Mike is at work and I'm not very "prop" minded, I'll leave that subject alone (I'll only get confused) he can post that question later.

Fair winds to all
Sue

Hi Phil,

Sounds great, I'm sat here in the saloon with the heater at the side of me, and a thick woolly jumper on, as you will appreciate thats usual for here. I think "Someday" would love to go back to the caribbean.

Welcome Sue and Mike,

Did you check to see if the prop was free from marine growth and barnacles? I thought I had a transmission problem but it was a dirty prop.
John

Hi John

Yes she was lifted out for transport then kept in the yard for 3 weeks for the usual antifoul etc.

Thanks for interest
Sue

Aloha and Welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. I used to have a Perkins 4-107 in my old boat. Great engine!
Kind regards,
