New Blower

Post by psychobilly » Wed Feb 16, 2011 4:00 am

I know one of my boats is glass and not a wood boat, nor have I built one, but I have learnt a lot here from yawl. I wanted to post these pics to show how some of the big boys build and locate some things. If'n I'm outta line here and no one is interested please let me know.


Well the blower was make'n some unpleasant racket.... I gots me a bran newy and got it installed yesterdee. I really liked the bracket that they used to mount it.

That bracket where it is in the vise bolts to the top of the starboard motor stringer, just under the starboard manifold. I replaced the old one with the new one and then spliced the wires. Yes I soldered them. I hate crimp splices. :roll:

I also replaced the bilge pump and cleaned it all up. Although there are some of those crimp splices that I hate so much I didn't put them there and they will prolly come back to haunt me....

I hate crimps too,but sometimes they are just easier to do in tight places.

I would use liquid electrical tape,heat shrink, or silicone to seal those crimps though....I've had ones corrode off in the bilge from the factory installed stuff

Well like you said they're in a tight space and was already there. When I spliced in the new bilge pump I soldered and heat shrank it but those were there already on the float switch. I may still replace the float switch as I do have one. The float switch in there is OK so...... nome sain.....
