Question Re: My Project Boat

Update on the outboard repair:

I took it to a guy who specializes in outboards. I asked him if he could show me how to replace the water pump so I could do it on my own next time around. He was more than happy to show me, I think he was thrilled to have some company! The bottom part of the outboard did not want to come off very easily. When we did get it out we found that the impeller was in okay shape but the plastic housing covering it was very blistered from heat. The problem was inside the engine, where he believed that there was blockage. He is going to rebuild it for me for $700.00. Is that a good price? This includes the parts (head gasket, etc). I had already tried scraping out the pee hole way before bring him the outboard. Thanks for the tip though!

Re: My Project Boat

Hi AllThumbs,

I have been reading your renovation posts with interest as I have just bought a DS22. I don't think mine needs too much doing to it, I hope! Def needs some varnishing, a few minor repairs to the gelcoat etc. One thing I don't know about is the swing keel/centre board as I bought the boat on the trailer and won't launch until next Spring. I'm hoping that I can get it down when I launch and that with a bit of lubrication (somewhere?) that it will go back up again now and then. Anyway, I was wondering if you had any advice in this department, or any pictures maybe. I'm guessing the DS20 is very similar to the DS22? I tried searching on SN for this topic without much success.

Thanks

Richard

Re: My Project Boat

I should have read your most recent posts first, as I now see you have dropped the centre board and supplied pictures as well! doh

Swing keel pivot question

Having now read your excellent posts and viewed your excellent pics of dropping the centre-board, I have a few questions. How did you get the cover off the pivot pin and how did you get the pivot pin out? Was it easy? Looking at my DS22 on the trailer, I can't even see where the pivot pin is. So I'm guessing its buried beneath a lot of paint!

Looking down into the centre-board casing it seems that my centre-board is hoisted up and down with a nylon strap. Not sure if that is bad thing or not. There is no winch to turn either, just a rope that you pull through a cam cleat.

I probably should overhaul the lot.

Richard

rta,

The DS22 is a different animal altogether. Different designer. You should join the DS20/22 yahoo group: DS20-22-DillerSchwill20-22 : DS20&22 DillerSchwill20&22

Re: My Project Boat

I am working on a new rudder. Here I am vacuum bagging a 1" ply lamination carved into an airfoil shape. 3 layers of 9 oz glass on each side.

Then, out of the bag it's being faired with epoxy mixed with fairing filler.

Re: My Project Boat

The upper section is made from 1/4" fiberglass sheet. Here I am gluing additional strips as stiffeners.

Re: My Project Boat

1 1/8" spacers hold the two halves apart. I am building a detent system which will detent the rudder in place when down but allow it to swing up in the event of a grounding.

Trial fit on the boat, plus a picture of the original setup.

Re: My Project Boat

Looks really nice and I love the detent system. I know it is a smallish boat but do you think the fiberglass sheet will be strong enough? I am guessing so but I'd probably feel better with aluminum plate, which is what I did when I built a rudder head for my Newport 16.
