Our Engine Has Been Still for 10+ Years … Will It Start?

It’s time to face our biggest fear since we got this boat nearly two years ago. Our engine has not been touched since 2006…will it start for us when we try?

Matt goes through a full explanation of how he prepped our Yanmar 4JH4E engine before our attempted start. There were a lot of things on that list, and a bit of annoying beeping from the pre-start in the background, so I’ve included captions in a few areas to make it easier to understand.

The next item to tick off our list is getting our cockpit ready to paint. Although we did 90% of the deck last year, we needed to wait on the cockpit due to all the chaos of things stored in there. Bringing it down to bare metal, we work it back up through an aluminum primer, barrier coat, and paint primer before we come to a halt on the painting process.

Cheers from the work yard!

Sewing, SNADS, & Fuel Systems

It’s time to get back to projects on the boat. Matt takes over the heavy duty end of things while putting together our fuel system. A task we’ve been waiting a long time to complete, and a huge weight off our shoulders now that it is done.
My job was much simpler, sewing screen covers for all our ports and hatches. Made from Phifertex Vinyl Mesh, these screens will keep us shaded and much cooler inside, still allow visibility out, and should *hopefully* keep the Florida heat from penetrating into our plexi and causing any more crazing.
