Slowly but surly
Here is an update... and as of so far the current progress on my refit project.
A before picture of my Perkins 4-154..The only real reason it came out was to facilitate all the other things needing done to satisfy the insurance co. so the yard wanted it and the gen set out of the boat..
I took advantage of that and went through the head and also sand blasted it to bear metal..painted with a rust encapsulator just in case..and then with high temp engine enamel...a couple pictures as it sits in the boat right now...I wanted to paint the beds with white epoxy but I got hung up at work the week they decided to re instill the engine so I will now have to worm my way in there to get it done...all hoses you see will be 100% replaced with new...as is the sound barrier and wiring.
I watched another Summer come and go with out so much as getting the hull wet but its getting closer.
"Go Simple...Go Large"
Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.
The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
