I was able to make it back over and work on the engine room, bilge, and engine. Cleaning of the raw water intake screens on the engine and AC unit was much needed. I am surprised that the AC was working as well as it was with the screen below.
Amazingly I was able to clean the above screen and put it back in service, although only because it won’t be used much for a few months. The engine screen was much cleaner however the sediment bowl needed to be shop vac’d.
I noticed from a forum post that not all Albin 36’s have the forward hatch which ads much needed access to an already cramped mechanical room. More than likely that is where a generator was once mounted.
I changed the oil on the injector pump as well. The oil that came out looked very good. May have been changed right before I bought it.
The bilge is much cleaner now, although it too is far from what I would like. Will need to work more on that.
I also noted that various bits of insulation (acoustic ceiling panels) have been falling down and once the small pieces hit the bilge water they become soaked and clog pumps if not watched carefully.
I am dreaming of the entire engine room being white peg board with a layer of exterior residential ‘blue board’ insulation underneath.
Didn’t have enough time to finish up the fiberglass work on the tub or the end caps on the bridge. Actually, I didn’t even have time to start it. I do have all the materials needed now so it is just a matter of getting back over.
Oh, and Starlight if you happen to see this, I can’t PM at that forum or I would have taken a few minutes to say hello.
