Rebuilding a coveted west coast hull

New fuel tanks, deck work and a new Cummins.

For you guys that follow the 2012 WESMAC build on this forum you'll notice the "fuel tank fabrication" is very similar.

I cant believe they use the hull and bulkheads as part of the fuel tanks.The only place I have seen that is on some PEI novi boats.

Tony has been building boats like that since 1985.
He claims he has not had a fuel tank leak or get taken out by a submerged "whatever" since he's been fabricating this way . :D

All these bigger boats he builds/repowers etc. are all USCG certified commercial fishing or passenger boats that ply the seas 365 days/yr etc.

Go figure !

The intergral tanks of Tony's that I know of have excellent history on them. I would take those anyday over the my H and H aluminium tanks. Leak prone hatches( we've added additional gasketing but they still leak) that allow seawater to drain onto and around the tanks, and then drain along the main stringer into the engine room bilge . We couldn't figure out why the engine room float switch kept turning on. Couldn't believe it until we tested it with the freshwater dock hose . Saltwater is the more corrosive element than Diesel fuel/oil

H&H aluminum tanks?

Do you mean H&H in Salem, MA?

Not H&H Marine Stueben Maine as in the boat builders?

H&H builds boat with their own fiberglass tanks.

My guess is that won't pass a cummins seatrial..

I got this quote directly from Tony on the use of engine intake hoses.

"Sorry to disappoint--Been using HD SPA hoses & the like for 25+ years and they outlast wire inserted "marine hoses" many times over and never fail internally.. Bend a marine certified wire hose, use in salt water and in 2-3 years they are close to done..Got tired of it.........But I guess it was black" ;)

Just because it works, that doesn't make it right...

I am highly suspect about this Coast Guard approved. Must be the guys checking boats out on the water for their routine training exercises, not Subchapter T boats. Because that just won't fly.

Could be wrong, but pretty sure I'm not.

I'd be ripped if I saw that on my boat.

I use sanitation hose for deck hoses and bilge pump discharge, they last about two years on deck and four or five on bilge pumps. Maybe he has better quality hose than I get from Hamilton, what I use does not stand up well in subfreezing temps, it cracks at bends. I would not ever use use it below the waterline or on engine cooling especially on the suction side. Just my 2 cent worth.

Interesting use for on the deck, I might consider it for that. Only use it for black water systems and chafing guards for wiring. Makes really nice sleeves and if you need to get it in an odd shape it takes the heat really well required to form it.

Funny how things get done east coast vs west coast. Doesn't get cold in California so maybe that white hose is ok ?? I've had folks look at my boat and ask why the hauler is mounted on the bulkhead and how does it work that way since its not hanging off the end of the davit :rolleyes: Depends on who it is but sometimes i tell them yeah it sucks & i've got to change that !! Then they usually ask what do i coil the rope into when hauling the pots:confused: The split house is really going to freak them out !!
