Rebuild Under the Deck

January through February

Where do all the parts come from?

All the standard and parts and hard to figure out how to fit pieces come from Fred Chall's in Freeport NY. Chuck at Fred Chall's has been part of all my projects and he works closely with the Baldwin Harbor crew.

Speciality and Downeast types of parts come from Gloucester and Maine businesses.

Everything under the Deck was changed out

  • Removed all wood, thru hulls glassed and recut, fixed more sins

  • All Supports Changed

  • 4x6 main beams (replaced 4x4)

  • All exhaust changed, exhaust Port glassed and rebed

  • Lots of extra touches by Steve and Eddie e.g. reinforced transom w Coosa where exhaust port and underwater lights mounted, put deep bilge pump on an aluminum hangar for future support

Steering, running gear

  • Parts Supplied by Rose Marine

  • Hydraulic System Replaced

  • Pulled/replaced the Shaft Log glassed and recut/rebed

  • Replaced Tides Dripless, shaft pulled and checked

  • Cutlass bearing changed

Fuel lines and Maretron Monitor

Westerbeke 5.5 ECD Generator

  • Factory Recon - 0 hours - had an issue on the electric side and was never run


  • Soundown - unexpected cycles went into designing this - landed well - mufflers for the 3208 takes some thought - Matt was a big help
