Got quite a bit done this weekend. Adjusted my new trailer to fit the boat, spliced an additional 300 ft of anchor line, changed lower unit oil. Should be ready for fishing in a few weeks.

Default Trojan F32 Flybridge

My Trojan F32 Flybridge is going in the water this week. I opened the floor boards to access the front bilge due to incessant foul bilge smell in the bow.The front bilge does not connect to the engine room by design so that oily water cannot wash forward from the engine room and create a smelly problem.The front bilge only drains fully when you go up on plain and the water runs back and runs out drains that are about 12" to the right and left of dead center. The front bilge also has a bilge pump that works well. The issue is in the winter when the boat is pulled and blocked any water that was left in the front bilge stays there due to the fact that the boat is blocked on a slight angle towards the stern. Over the years (1988 boat) there was always some water left up there. The scrubbing with soap & Clorox, pressure rinse, and vac could have been the first time this was ever done. This was a big job but very much needed. many other minor fixes have been over the past month but it is ready to splash.

Replaced my broken plastic trim sender on my Suzuki DF175 with a stainless steel replacement I got on eBay. They don't make it easy to get to the sender, but I managed with some make shift tools. Everything works great now and the replacement was only $40 versus $250 for a new trim sender.

Well it stopped raining here, so i decided to pull it out of the storage place in the backyard woods while the ground has made its way from mush, so I got that going for me....

Now to mount the pair of GO9's and Totalscan I finally got here....
It'll be nice to have some form of GPS and bottom unit...
Glad I waited for the new units to come out... Looking forward to seeing how they work...

Had drilled out the fuel tank for a sensor install just before winter. Poured in some acetone to sit before winter as well. Wasn't certain what it looked like inside. Today I was pleasantly surprised withe the way it looked inside. No sludge or crap at all. Was expecting worse. Ne sensor is in. Scratches aren't deep, just scuffed from the screwdriver from deburrng the holes. Have the tank back in place now with a new ledger board water proofed with epoxy. Have to get the welder out and extend the steel tank straps. One of the anchoring bolts snapped off in the stringer. Water leaking through the hatch rotted so.e of the original ledger board and rusted out the forward anchor bolts. Fortunately the tank wasn't pitted all that bad. Last picture is the inside. Had a few flakes fall in, but used a stick with tape on the end to.clean it all out.

Stuck a fire extinguisher in the emergency port of my generator and emptied it to extinguish a fire while anchored in a cove.

Actually that was Saturday but close enough.

How many replacements now? Think I'd have rushed out and got another half dozen after needing g to use one.
