great to hear from ya we have a 30' coastal cruiser.  Apearently in the same shape as yours.  With your refit are you updating to modern amenities or going back original?  I am debating between rebuilding the original gas engines or replacing with more economical diesel, and also maybe adding a generator.

hey there

i am upgrading most everything onboard she has 2 new chevy 454's that were in the boat when i got it. i have placed a 7 kw kabuto genset onboard. i placed it between the main engines.(fits nice there) i have upgraded the head by installing a elctroscan system its a little pricey. but felt it was worth the money not to have the smell issuses with holding tanks and so on.the only down fall is that there is not enough salt in the water here. so i had to add a salt feed tank for proper funcation of the system.  i also installed a complete new fresh water system. i feel i have made good use of alot of the space that was not used in the boat would be more than happy to share any of this info with you. if it will help you in your refit. there is alot of space not used in this boat for add ons and upgrades

best of luck with your

mark and the leaky teaky

These ideas are great i already have a electrosan but also have to have a holding tank because Alabama is a zero discharge state.  I think ill have to add a genset however due to the setup of my engines i will have to find another place to put it.  When we purchased the boat someone had mounted a air conditioner on top of the cabin, i really dont like it there but it is nice to have a/c and heat on the boat.  Also the cabin is in shambles so i have ambitions of a makeover (simple but effective) a workable galley for a live aboard for a month at a time. For working "vacations" in Virginia.

hey there

have you thought about were you want to place the genset ? i had alot of xtra space in my engine room and was thinking of installing my back up genset there.  i came across a small 3.5 kw at a boat bone yard( (enjoy walking thru looking at the older boats) that has a 12v dc charger built in. as a tug boater i have learn the more back up systems i have the better i i feel. lol . the boat came with 2 cruise air 16,000 btu ac systems. not sure when they were placed in the boat but the manufactors dates on the systems were 94 one the rear and 2001 on the front the compressors are located under the galley seating on the starboard side and the other half one is over the little closet that backs up to the shower. and the other is placed into the knee wall between the lower salon and upper salon  i do not have a heat system on board i would love to see pics of yours. right now i have cabin gutted out and just starting to place things back in. i will take some pics of the inside and share them with you. if any of what i'm doing might help you. the worst part of this boat is this wiring. what a nightmare i spent a week going thru it. to try and straighted it out. and still alot of work to go. you can also reach me at mrmako3@yahoo.com and i will send you some pics of the boat, and the work i'm doing to it .looking forward to hearing from you. there is also another person with a owens concorde and he has done alot of work on his. looking at the pics i have seen on his at the little knee wall he installed glass blocks. a very neat clean look.

so what part of Virginia i live just over the Va / Nc boarded

mark and the leaky teaky

captnms,  How is the restoration coming.  I just found out my 75 gallon galvanized water storage tank is leaking and has to be removed.  Maybe you can come down and help me out.  :O) You probably have a lot of good idea's on how to remove it.  Floor has to be taken out.  I will probably put Plastic back in, build a crate to hold it etc.  It will give me a good project for the winter.. my email is: wr5871@bellsouth.net    Next spring I have to pull the boat for bottom paint and other maintenance..  Pull out a couple more thousand.. :o)  Boat Safe, Doogie
