Chuck can you shoot a pic of the backside of your rocker switch panel? This wiring is killing me!

I bought the bluesea 12 gang fuse block to replace the 7 bus fuses that came mou8nted individually in the dash. The bus fuses are all piggybacked. To eliminate the extra clutter I want to use the new fuse block and hide all the fuses in the electrical compartment behind the dash.



With this is all I need the main power in and main ground-  then run the single power wire to the switch, then from the switch out to the accessory? Do you know what the 6 terminal screws at the top are for?

Thanks!

best i can tell without the panel in front of me is: hook up the power and the ground then use a test mlioght to find out wheter they are power or ground....(for starters)

headed back to the house as we speak too!! hoping to have it all wired up with all the new weather-pack plugs and ready to mount and plug in by the time i leaVe again.

then i believe i will tow it down to a local mechanic and have the engines all lined up and the drives mounted and any shifting issues all wrapped up.

I MIGHT BE BOATING THIS YEAR AFTER ALL!!

Dash is lookin' sweet! Really like how the rocker switches are up on the vertical panel. Mine are on the horizontal above the wheel. Nice work!!

Chuck, Not sure what batteries you are planning to use but $1100 is
nuts! I put in 2 interstate 1100 MCA cranking batteries (one per motor)
plus x2 6 volts Trojan 6 volt (go kart) batteries in series (which will out
perform any set of 2 marine deep cycle batteries) for the house. I spent
around $650 - $700. Research it. This was they way I choose from my
research I it worked extremely well for my boat, which is on the hook,
very well!!

cheap versions of the odyssey batteries---sears platinum marine 31's(made by the aformentioned) the real ones(odyssey's) cost about 360.00 each!

originally designed for and used  by the military. something to do with virgin lead and a few other tricks that really make them outperform others.

price is actually cheaper then say a set of "lifelines" or trojans...

they run about 265.00 each. ...AGMS.

the system will have only ONE starting battery for both engines. the other three will be the house side.

2 alternators into a smart regulator which charges house first and when they are satisfied a combiner of sorts will let the charge go to the final start battery.

well--

i picked up and installed the "flushers" $800.00 bones! I couldn't stand the thought of these fresh water engines getting doused with salt water without this flush system. ALSO found a great deal on the props (and bought them)...$299.00 each

AND!!! started the charging system--picked up my Balmar 612H regulator and Duo-Charge.(semi-installed) just need to pick up the alternator. starting with an 80 amp for the whole system BECAUSE, i think i will add a dual alternator setup down the road.

a single 80 is kindof on the low end of needed amps but belts and pulleys need to be changed for 100+ amp alternators.

WOULD LIKE TO GET THIS BOAT IN THE DRINK THIS YEAR!!!

Only other thing left is: line the engines and hang the drives and props!! i need to pay someone to line the engines---i cannot seem to get them close...

PICS to follow!

Tip on the engine alignment bro.... I assume you have brand new gimbal bearings in there which will make it seem as if your way out of alignment till you get the bearing aligned. I ran into this when I put new bearings and bellows on mine. With the alignment tool slid in as far as it will go apply force up, down, sideways and you will feel it give a little in each direction. After each move try to get the tool to slide into the coupler. Once you get it in it's gonna be back and forth between adjustments on the engine and bearing till your 100%. My engines were aligned fine when I put the new bearings in and I was like, WTF is wrong? Discovered the bearing alignment after several strings of explicatives and much frustration, LOL! Good luck!!

Here's the alignment tips that came with my alignment tool

Inspect the splines on the shaft for visible wear, generally if the splines
are worn then the coupler is also worn. If wear is evident replace the parts
as needed.


NEVER Force the alignment tool in, you can damage the tool and the coupler.

1) Once you have the engine height close enough to
    fully insert the tool without force, then you can start
    working on setting the proper alignment.

    Take your time, getting it close enough to insert the
    tool the first time can sometimes be the hardest (most
    frustrating) part.

 2) Coat the end section of the tool (the smallest diameter
     area) with a light coat of grease and then insert it fully
     into the coupler.

 3) Without turning the tool, pull it straight out and look at
     the depth of the teeth marks in the grease.

     If the teeth marks in the grease are deep on the
     top side and shallow on the bottom side of the tool then
     your motor is too high.

     If the marks in the grease are deeper on the bottom than
     on the top then your motor is too low.

 4) Adjust the engine height accordingly.

 5) Keep checking the depth of the marks in the grease until
     they are equal in depth on top and bottom.

Sometimes as little as 1/8th of a turn on the adjusting nut can be the
difference between being properly aligned, and just having it "close"

Lightly Grease the splines on the shaft (and on the coupler if you can) with
Spline grease prior to assembly.

thanx for that!

well-number one is where i'm at.....

the differant engines with same mounts are not even close to where they need to be. i need to figure out how to get them close...then maybe.

looks like there may even be a left to right alignment issue. i cannot imagine how. i took out small block chevys and put in big blocks. same exact type mounts...in the same mounting holes. how can there possibly be a left/right problem? ...well, one way or the other, i'll be finding out soon!

well! i spent the last several days in and out of the water. it actually floated for a couple days.

the first dip, we never took it off the trailer. had a substantial exhaust hose leak. repaired that and dipped it again a day later with no MAJOR leaks. one of my fresh rebuilt raw water pumps is dribbling. kicks the bilge pump on about twice an hour. not enough to keep me from floating on it for couple days!

i have carb issues and a sudden thermostat issue on the starboard engine.

doing thermostats today. maybe carbs too if i find time.

the raw water pump is on the mechanic.....he was supposed to be here yesterday......

other then that... after five years and a complete re-fit..  YEE-HAWW!!

one more sidenote: i LOVE the way the Bravo's shift... night and day differance from the alpha's that came out. what a JOY to move around the docks and slips now.

Congrats Brother!! Weeding out those little problems are all part of the process. Same things happen with a new boat which is in effect what you have. Now we need some pics of her afloat so I can daydream about someday retiring somewhere where winterization means turning the AC off at night

thanx MA. i got the thermostats and carb done yesterday...i'm going to try for another dip before Sunday when i have to leave again for a month+.

Ya honestly, i'm pretty happy with the result. i knew i would have lots of little issues. most of the issues right now are from the mechanic i let work on it!

I'm just glad engines don't have to come back out for any reason. (like a leak) or....worse.

i forgot what a pain in the arse this thing is to move around. (15,000 lbs and 11 foot beam) happily i am only about 7 miles from the ramp. the highest speed limit between here and there is 45.

and yes...i'm very sorry to rub it in, but i have tons of season left.... in fact, what's left of the season down here runs right into NEXT season! The water gets a little too cool to take a dip....and i might actually have to put some long pants on.... but we go all year here.

Actually- the Grouper fishing is really good here around Christmas. They move in much closer to shore.

COME ON DOWN MA!

yup! she FLYS! Thanx for asking.

I don't have the WOT number yet but the others are right where i thought they would be.

comes out of the hole and up on plane instantly. seems smooth, temps are rock solid, easy cruise speed of 35.

i still have tons of stuff to hook up. chartplotter, fuel flow meters, fishfinder, etc.

i think there are drive trim issues. AND the trim tabs aren't wired up yet either... this boat really never needed them.(still want them)

trying to get a couple days of enjoyment included into all of these test runs.

we are going to run it out today for a bit. maybe soak a shrimp or two....it'll just be two of us, so maybe i'll shoot for a WOT number today.

Keep U posted. try and get a couple shots up to (pics)

Looking foward to seeing more pictures of your renovation.. looking really great, love the dash panel and guages. How do you like the pop up cleats,,are they easy to use when you need quick access or do you fumble to get them out.

hey russell,

I think we are going for a run on monday. Great little artificial reef about 12 miles out. Should be some Grouper there!

No problems using the Pop-ups. However, it was kinda weird creating a drain system for them. I used clear hose and a bunch of plastic "T"'s. that lead back to the bilge. Seems like water wants to lay in those lines though. If I could find some tiny stainless through hulls, I would probably re-do it that way. Each one would get it's own dedicated thru-hull.

I spent a day cleaning stuff that I thought would never come clean.(mechanic helper). Got rid of my work bench down below. (rear bench seat) It is now a seat again! Mounted my Chart plotter. Found my cockpit carpet and got it installed.

We are probably going to actually use it a few more times and then i need to get back to work on it. TONS still to do.

AND MAMMA KEEPS SCREAMING THAT SHE WANTS A SMALLER (27) CENTER CONSOLE! ...Hmmm. I could be talked into that....if she goes 30...and IF she's REAL nice. BUT, I DIGRESS. BACK TO REALITY.

Not much more pictorially to report. Ill get some pics of the hoses i was refering to. maybe the cockpit all cleaned up. Been so long since i posted a picture on here... i'm not sure I remember HOW!

Have a great weekend and a GREAT THANKSGIVING!!

wow.....been a while since i've done updates...

where to start?

Actually.....there are no REAL updates to report. we've mostly been simply USING it! wires hanging all over the place, tons of stuff that needs to be connected, etc...

(all now fixed since the last time she was in the water!!)

toilet top gasket(working head now!), sink drain is hooked up now, wires all hooked up to the tab switches(no more tripping over them!), made a new switchpanel for my bilge pumps...with heavy duty switches, headliner is mostly back up,

i finally got my WOT number. 5000 rpm motors only getting to 4000. i need to sort through THAT.

Hi guys Considering buying a 1990 St Tropez. Is there anything I should know about this boat before I make the deal?

Thanks

only thing i would say is: as with ANY boat...get it surveyed.

310? what kind of price? i love the way ours gets up and gets going. these are heavy boats but perform really well considering that.

email me, i'll send a phone number. i know mine inside and out. i could probably answer any question you could ask.

sorry to leave everyone hanging....it's been a very busy few months. grandkids for a month. baby showers, old highschool friend, and trying to find time to work in between.

with all of that being said.... we've been using it. all of the recent shots have been taken with my phone. need to figure out how to get them out of the phone and onto this thread...

mostly boring stuff like sunset shots over the marina. some fish we caught...etc etc.
