  • 5/13 rigging update

    5 weeks into rigging, I'm getting anxious. The 3 AC spreader lights are mounted. The center light needed some customizing. The existing DC lights were removed, I fabricated a 1/2" starboard panel to cover the old holes, mounted the AC light on center & spread the DC lights apart on either side.

    The 2 additional underwater lights are installed & all 4 are wired in the bilge, not yet wired back at the panel. All are now barrier coated & ready for bottom paint.

    The smart sensor transducer has been wired & installed. (in between the 2 underwater lights)

    The ACR spotlight has been mounted on a custom fabricated & powdercoated bracket, horn mount modified to clear the spotlight bracket. The Navpod & stantions have been installed in the tower, just waiting for the anodized tips for the stantions. The antenna standoffs are installed on 1/4" flat stock I had welded on the tower.

    Lastly, today Tony sanded the bottom smooth to accept a fresh coat of bottom paint, hopefully this week... should be floating soon.

    When you move up to a 35

    I'm first in line. Nice conceptualization on how to set the boat up and even nicer work.

        Thanks for the kind words guys. I really try to think every decision through and do it right...once.

        Rick, I am using lights from a local emergency & fire truck outfitter. They are made here in Nesconset, the company is called Fire Research. The light facing aft is about 15" wide, 3.5" high & about 5" deep and is 1000 watts. The 2 facing sideways are 11.5" wide, 3.5" high & 5" deep and are capable of 500 watts, but I have 300 watt bulbs in them.

          Worked till 11pm last night, all is moving along nicely.

          I picked up the teak dash panel from the finisher & installed it, looks real nice. I'll post a few pictures tomorrow, left the camera on the boat.

          The AC accessory circuit panel is wired & reinstalled.

          The underwater metals are painted with black Trilux. (strainers, UW lights, thru hulls...) Bottom is ready for a coat of paint now & after that, back in the water.

          It's possible I may be fishing by Sunday, hope the weather holds this week.

            Here is a picture of the dash installed without any electronics in it. I love it!
