Exhaust Cowls

The exhaust cowls are made and installed.
The discharge area of the holes in the cowls is 150%+ of the area of the 5 inch exhaust.

There will be a small vent hole drilled in the top rear corner of the cowls and they will be complete.

The 2 forward staterooms are being painted and varnished.

Beth and Brandi are all over it.

Can't wait to see it next week.

Hardtop and flying bridge

Moved the hardtop off the jig and started back on the bridge.

Crash valves

What do you all think of my crash valves? Flip 1 handle 90 degrees and the engine is now a bilge pump, and it goes thru the foot valve and the engine strainer before it hit the impeller, so there should not be a trash issue for the pump.

Hope they never need it, but it am glad we put it in.

I like the idea Cap'n Wilde but how much capacity do the raw water pumps have?

Good question. I would estimate around 50 gals per min at higher RPM but I don't have a figure from Yanmar.

I just know if you need it, it is there.

I managed to locate some info in the service manuals for my 4JH-TE and it specs the water pump">raw water pump at 16 lt (just over 4 Gallons) per minute at 1000 RPM. I still like the idea though and like you said it's there if you need it.

These engines are 200 hp 4LHA-DTP's, a 4JH4-TE is only 75 hp. I am sure it is only like a 3/4 or 1 inch pump instead of the 1 1/2" pump on the 4LHA-DTP's we have.
And these engines turn up to 3300 RPM so I am sure in the higher rpm range she is moving some water.

Working on another boat right now that at full power her raw water pumps are moving 400 gals per min per engine.

That is some serious water.

Flybridge, hardtop, interior paint and varnish.

Forest is building the seating in the bridge, and the aft support struts are on the top.

Beth and Brandi are working on the paint and varnish.

And I am still wiring, but see the end of that finally.

What do you all think? Are we going to make it?Click image for larger version

More pictures tomorrow

I will take some of the forward staterooms tomorrow. They are getting close.

Painting and varnish getting there, door frames made and ready to go in.

Knocking things off the list.

Full River AGM Batteries

I have had several people suggest I use Full River AGM batteries instead of the Lifeline batteries I was planning on using.

Do any of you have any experience with these batteries?
I would like to hear from you.

The relay

The relay is to control the power for the central vac system. The one we had to build because a store bought one wouldn't fit.
