The engine room, like a lot of this boat was in a relatively low state of repair. Maintenance was clearly not regularly undertaken and many parts of the room were in a very sad state.
As well as all the new work on the bilges and fuel tanks (see there own sections) all the overboard pipes in the engine room have been removed and only those required have been retained. All holes to the outside have been plugged and covered.
One new 3″ salt water manifold was installed to supply sea water to the Gardener, the Isuzu generator, the water maker and the toilet system. Each engine has its own strainer basket and take-off. The inlet on the underside of the hull was covered with a new stainless steel strainer.
The new manifold is fitted with removable anodes and has been properly grounded to the boats ‘earth’.
A new fuel management manifold was made and installed. The manifold receives fuel from both tanks and the returns from both motors and has outlets to both motors. It is fitted with a drain and an air bleed valve and is properly connected to the vessel’s earth system. Two new transducers were mounted in the bilges. New holes were cut into the hull and new wires run to the wheel house.
The two original extractor fans were removed and two new 24V fans and ducting installed.
