NMES - good luck getting her righted and I hope you finish the job and bring the old girl back to the condition she deserves.

I agree , that poll is in very bad taste .

Agree with the above.................................Glad to hear that the repair and transom held up. Lot of doubters about balsa repair, plywood, 5200 etc

Default She's up

She's finally up after all this mess she ended up coming up in about 3 hours and ended up floating. We are currently not allowed on our boat due to contamination and coast gaurd investigation. We are sorry to say there has been no solid evidence found of why she went down as of 5 pm est. we are all still very anxious to put this to rest and figure out what and why it happened. Hopefully we'll be allowed on the boat tomorrow to figure it out. As far as the repairs there was no indication of any damage found. I am sorry I haven't been posting much for you guys but I will get on again tomorrow and try to put up more pics of inside. I will look through some questions from you guys and answer now while I'm on give me a few min.

Glad she's floating again! Hope you guys get onboard soon and get her sorted out for the trip south. Do you think you'll be able to get the Yamahammers cleaned up enough to run the rest of the way or is 2 days submerged too much?

Thanks for the update - keep your powder dry!

I'm now finally subscribed. Sorry to hear about your troubles. I must admit I voted in the poll. I hope you guys are able to take it lightheartedly. Sometimes when you have difficult circumstances all you can do is stop and laugh at yourself. And in this case I don't know what else you can do. Just shake your head, laugh, and move on. Best of luck to you. I hope to see this boat better than new one day soon.

I'm with you guys, that poll is ridiculous.
Big Al's post was original and witty, the rest are just half assed attempts to be the same

Thanks to NEMS for posting, this boat being built and going through Sandy in my neck of the woods has me pulling for it. Chris

This thread is fantastic. In all honesty, I don't think anyone on here wants nothing but the best for this boat and her owner. I'm happy to see NEMS get a contract this big, and when pictures are done of the finished product, I have confidence it will bring them that much more business in the future. This is no easy project, and I respect the undertaking, as do others. Sure, we have fun with names, but guess what, the owner might actually use one of them!! I'm interested to find out the details, as any of the THT members with SF should be interested to know... It's a learning process for everyone.

A boat is like a child... They are a headache at times... The more headaches they cause the happier you are with the finished product!

Good luck to your team at NEMS, keep the posts coming. There are a lot of well wishers in your corner. I myself see huge potential in this project, balsa core and all.

2000 65' Viking
V-16 mtu mains
Purchased may of this year
Started fiberglass repairs June 2 and finished with up all major damage repair August 6.
Complete hull bottom and hull exterior/interior were checked for density with proper metering equipment. Once we determined areas of removal we realized it was way worse than it looked. Just as an average any holes with a diameter of around 12" had about 2' of damaged, soaked, muddy core in all directions of it. We were able to demo and remove all of the existing core that was bad until we reached solid dry core. Once rotten core was removed we had to grind two rings on every hole on the exterior and lay a mold on the outside for laying up interior plugs. Once plugs were completed we pull all molds off grind the wax back off for bonding the plug to the hull under the core. Once that has started b stage we start to apply a putty and rake for bonding the core to the hull. After that has cured we start prep for laying up final rings/caps on the exterior hull. once we finish caps it on to the inside in there on every hole we ground 1-18", 1-24", 1-30" and prepped 40" of surface we'll post pics of a ring so you can understand to those that are unfamiliar. Once all repairs were completed we went back to Fl for about a month to catch up on things at home and figure out what the owner wanted to do about completing the rebuild of main engines.

Thanks for the update! Good luck with the final raising. What can be kept at this point? Good mechanic can fix those engines I'm sure. What about the fuel. ? We're the tanks sealed? Steerage?

Man what a project. Keep up the good work.

Do you have a website NEMS? I couldn't find one, I was interested in what else you do.

You know I've been on other boards that have so much negativity.

It is great to see everyone here rally around and be supportive.

Boaters are an awesome group.

NEMS add me to the list of supporters. Best of luck.....

Also, in regards to the names... I think it's just a bit of fun with no malice intended. I don't think anyone should be worked up over them.

This is going to be the most rewarding finished product. I can't wait to see it finished.
