Outer Banks Fishing Reports
1/28/14 Boat Yard Project Winding Down
We Just left Bayliss Boatyard after arriving December 1st for a repower and some other projects. CAT took back our prototype c-18A's back out and replaced them with a production set. We put 3200 hours on them in 17 months and now are starting back at zero hours. We had 11,000+ hrs on our generator and replaced that as well while engine room was stripped down. We also did a lot of re-wring, plumbing, new seacocks, thru hulls, and dripless shaft seal systems. We also were able to sand and paint the engine room. We did some work to our running gear as well including straightening/polishing shafts, wheel work, and replaced cutlass bearings. We also did some repairs, and touch up paint to the hull. Test run went well and we got about 37.5 knots top end. Patrick Harrison is finishing install of our new cabinets in salon that we were unable to finish last winter. Pics below of Engine room a mess after motor removal, after cleaned and painted, engine being craned in, new generator, finished product. Will be back fishing by next weekend and bluefins should be showing up any time so give us a call or e-mail.
