East coast Lady Update

For the ones watching for updates from the free vessel East Coast Lady. We got done with the work on the hard today and put her back in the water. The bill was over $3,300 it was more than we expected, but they had broken bolts in the coupling to the propeller shaft. Had to be drilled and tapped out with a larger bolt. New strips new bottom jop, past oxidization removal from the gel-coat and a buffing. Lot of work. New zinc on the shaft, new stuffing box, packing and boot. Here are a few photos of the boat on the way to splash.

Re: East coast Lady Update

Looks like the yard did a nice job on the boottop.

What's on the prop and shaft?

Certified...in several regards...

Re: East coast Lady Update

Did you install new tennis balls on the swim ladder?

Re: East coast Lady Update

bljones, The stoppers are missing off the swim ladder. I have found some new ones. I just have not put the on yet. Yes I know its tacky. I will fix that.

Sailingfool, Here is a better photo of the completed prop. They did paint it. The folding prop seems a bit stick now? I hope the paint in the joint will wear off a bit alowing the prop to function properly.

Hey, I don't think it's tacky, I think the tennis balls are a great low-buck solution.
