Boat Yard LXXIII

     I've also been working on the floors for the salon deck. Here are a couple of pictures of where I'm at to date. I only have a few more pieces to install and I will be done with the floors. It's getting hard to move around in the engine room now because you are on your hands and knees most of the time. I just have a few more fuel lines to run and then the wiring to do and I can put the deck on and start with the salon framing.

 

 

 

      I have completed the fuel system plumbing, the fresh water system, and the raw water system. All I have left is the holding tank plumbing. To the left is a picture of the two holding tank discharge pumps which I have installed. I have the hose and valves ordered to complete the installation and as soon as it arrives I can complete the plumbing. In the meantime, I have the first salon deck plate cut and fit so I can install the stairs up to the bridge. I need to get the stairs installed before I can run any wires up to the bridge since they will run through the deck and under the stairs up to the bridge. In the picture to the right you can see the deck plate and risers for the stairs in place.

     Here are some pictures of my fuel system plumbing. These two are of my fuel polishing system. To the left you can see the pressure side of the fuel manifold along with the two polishing filters, as well as the fuel filter for the engine mounted to the bulkhead just forward of the fuel polishing filters. To the right is a picture of the suction side of the system. Here you can also see some of the fuel lines going to the starboard engine. Below is another view of the fuel lines coming out of the day tank, and going to both engines.

 

     To the left is a picture of some of the fuel lines going to the port engine. To the right is a picture of my generator. You can see the fuel supply line going into the top of the generator, and you can also see some of the fuel transfer lines in this picture.
