Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Installed and wired up the bilge pump and float switch today. Wired for Manual and automatic modes. Rule 200 Pump Rule 35A Float switch After some internet research I used Fast cure 4200 to stick them both down. Seems to hold pretty good. I didn't want to add the extra height of a wood block to scre...

I’m looking forward to your reviews on it. Please post pics of the unit and faubs.
Here is a picture of it installed (not wired yet) with a custom wooden bracket (more pics of the bracket here)

Pic of the fob as requested.

I will be wiring it up soon.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I did some epoxy encapsulation (two coats) on the underside of the covering boards today. It certainly sucked working upside in cramped quarters...

West system 105/205. I used a foam brush and slathered it on.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Looking at the MOB Kill switch Directions I have the Mercury is a "Close to stop" type.

That means that during normal operation the switch is open, when you want to stop the motor (e.g. pull the lanyard) the switch will close.

I see you and I have the same problem... Everything that is flat enough that things don't fall off becomes a table! :lol:
HaHa, I feel the same way with my Overnighter build. I keep piling stuff on till it slides off ;) Its a terrible table, maybe I should turn it into a boat!

Looking good Carl! You are making great progress

I use the template router approach a lot but I cheat and use a laser to cut out the templates :)

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I made significant progress on the wiring this weekend. I'm pretty excited that its coming along. Saturday I wired up most of the connections to the motor (oil pressure switch, tachometer, ignition, neutral safety switch, Water temp, head temp, starter solenoid, electric choke). I ran the wire for t...

Judging the wire loom size seem like a tricky business. I've got hard installed PVC conduits that I hope are big enough.
The split loom I used was 5/8" I probably should have used 3/4". I can't imagine routing that much wire through conduit; adding a wire later will be near impossible.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I made a little progress on the wiring from the dash to the under the seat where the main fuse panel is. The split Corrugated sleeving worked out well, I probably should have got one size large to allow for future wires to be added. I certainly have an appreciation for modern car wiring harnesses no...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I made and installed a bracket for the Man Overboard receiver.

It was a bit tricky to epoxy to the side of the hull. I needed to make a scaffolding to support it while the epoxy cured.

Hopefully it is not going to be kicked when people are getting in and out of the cockpit.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I've been working on finishing up the trailer the past few weeks and I'm really happy how it turned out. It's pretty much done, just need to finish the licence plate bracket. This trailer had no lights on it at all and I totally rebuilt the entire thing. way more work than I thought it would be but ...
