Jim. When you get a chance give us a picture low and from the rear of the trailer. I was only kidding about the casters, but I would really like to see what they did back there.
Thanks

Thanks Jim. Yea, that looks pretty typical for a keel drive boat. Do you know what the casters are for? They would never hit the ground the way I see it.

Don't know. I guess if someone had a steep driveway it would prevent scraping.

I have a steep drive onto a steep hill! I have also bent a prop on a curb. Yes! I would have them.

Your boat is looking amazing, well done.
Can i ask how much of the Interlux stain you used to do the boat?
Thanks, Troy

Thanks!
One pint of stain will do the whole boat. You thin the stain so it goes a lot further than you might think.

The Interlux stain should be thinned. Interlux 333 is the recommended thinner (kerosene and naphtha).

Last weekend was bilge pump weekend.

For proper placement, I had to find the deepest spot in the boat, I took measurements from the top of my motor stringers to the keel at different points. To confirm the placement, I put a level on a motor stringer and lowered the trailer until it read level on the motor stringer. Next, I put water into the boat and used the dipstick technique to make sure I had the low point. Glad I made my floor with removable sections for easy access.

Next, I installed the bilge pump and related float switch, and then pumped water out to test.

After testing I decided that I would add a second pump. Since I will have two bilge pumps feeding into a single outlet, I devised a “Y” fitting so one pump wouldn’t pump into the other pump because rule doesn’t recommend check valves.

The first pump is controlled by the automatic/manual switch. It will be switched to automatic. I didn’t want the modern bilge switch to be seen on my classic dash, so I installed it in a box behind the dash. The switch lever extends slightly beyond the bottom of the dash. The second bilge pump will be manual only and be controlled by a second classic type switch on the dash. Pics Below:

Hi Carl,
Yes it is. They are pvc fittings like you would use for sprinklers. The "y" threaded fitting has one opening with a threaded 1/2 opening and two with threaded 3/4 openings. (couldn't find a fitting with three 1/2" threaded openings.) I got reducers that took the 3/4 openings down to 1/2". I then screwed 1/2" nipples into the three openings. The 1/2" nipples are a nice tight fit into the 3/4" bilge hose that I used, so tight that you don't need hose clamps.

Looking good Jim. Is that a push-pull cable attached to a Chris Craft shift lever I see there?
