San Juan 24 progress

Hey guys, thought I would make a thread documenting the work going into my '75 San Juan 24.

My plans so far are:
-clean, clean, clean
-rip out all old wiring
-install new, clean, updated electronics and wiring
-refinish all brightwork
-reseal leaking chainplates
-rebed portlights
-lots of other stuff!


Here's the day I picked her up





Interior (lots of work needed here):


notice the half-ass vinyl job:


wiring mess:


more:


nasty bilge:


Thanks for looking, I'll keep updating this as I go.

-Tip

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Took some time and re-sealed my pesky chainplates. This is one of the few beefs I (and many others) have with Bruce Kirby's design. The port side was leaking pretty heavily. I went ahead and re-sealed the starboard chainplate also, as well as the toe rail drains (sorry no pics of that).

Getting rid of the all the old sealant (previous owner had ran a bead of sealant right on top the old stuff):


Gettin' there:


After I removed all remnants of old sealant, I cleaned thoroughly with some Interlux 202 solvent. Then I packed in some 3M 5200 to seal her up.

As I was cleaning, I realized I didn't have any more masking tape with me so its a little sloppier than I would have liked, but I can live with it:





One more thing... thought I'd include a quick pic of the maiden sail a while ago (little over trimmed)

Pretty boat.
One good thing about a San Juan 24 is there isn't much wiring to start with so it's not too hard of a job to rewire.
3M 5200 is not a good choice for anything you will ever want to remove and really shouldn't be used on a boat except possibly for hull/keel joints. It's adhesive properties are so strong that the gel coat will be pulled off when trying to remove it. Sikaflex 291 or 3M 4200 are better choices.

Great thread. It's good to see such progress made on a sailboat.

I've never sail one, but she looks pretty sleek. I bet she goes to windward really well.

Regards,
Brad

Hey tip, I just bought one of those BlueSea battery switches and am planning to wire two batteries up for overnight power. Have you found a good wiring diagram on SN or anywhere else for that?

Anyone else have one?

PS - Nice work on the chainplates dude!

mitiempo - thanks, and you're right. I actually used 4200 (green tube) - Looks like I got a little mixed up when I was writing that. 5200 would have been a bad choice for chainplates

brad - thanks, and yeah, she is a great heading upwind! ...but downwind is another story

smackdaddy - I'd check first with the Blue Seas site. Here's a link to the manual to one of the switches:

Smacky—

Depends on which switch you bought. Some have three posts, others just four.

It's the BlueSea 6007 that I bought HERE.

It's got 3 posts - and the switch is the Off/1/2/1+2 config. The question I have regards wiring the negative terminals. Do I gang those across the 2 batteries - then go into the buss with single wire? Or what?

This is just a house bank. I have an OB so don't have to worry about a starting battery. I just need extended power for the lights, etc.

This electrical stuff is hard.

(PS - surely there's already a thread for this. I just haven't found it.)
