Discussion in 'Otis Enterprises Marine Corp. (OEM MARINE)' started by WoundUpMarine, Jul 3, 2013.
Mauve was offered by Chrysler in the mid 60's. I spoke to a guy at Englishtown Dragway , Mopar car show once with a 1 of 1 Mauve all original Plymouth Belvedere 426 hemi. Nice old guy, bought it new, never raced. Bet he's glad that he ordered that color! Not a bad color, reminds me of those Christmas candies with peanut butter centers. Travis will fix you up! Trawler was "Claret" btw.
Claret awlgrip is sick, I second that MDI.
Personally I would have gone flag blue with cordovan gold boot stripe.
No matter the color, they can carry a load
For the sake of discussion here are some out of the water pics
She looks great !!!
Did she sell?
Should be finalized in the next few days. Just waiting on an insurance binder. Will be staying local in the same harbor just moving moorings.
Interesting exhaust system, have any more pics ?
Mud, sorry for the delay. but here is a pic. Originally with the Cummins 855 the stack came out just to the midship side of the port side cabin door. After rebuild and aftercooling the 855 the stack went all the way port, to the outboard side of the port side door. You can see a hole in the overhang of the roof above the deck light. Those were traditional long narrow mufflers.
When we repowered to the lugger my dad found this atrocity in a catalog from AIM. It has lasted and works well with no issues but Asthetically I never liked it . The stack comes through the deck and an aluminum box that covers the transmission and provides storage space.
With the need for a large diameter pipe and the addition of the below deck lobster tanks it wasn't feasible to route it back over to port side.
Most diesels are set up with exhaust to be on starboard side (and in the way) because they come out to the designs for truck engines and on a truck the exhaust will go to the curb or starboard side of the truck. Except for Deere's as they mostly exhaust to port, maybe because they were are originally designed for farm and off road applications. Or so I have been told
Yeah that isn't bad at all. Different dosn't mean bad in my book, I could even grow to like it. Functionality and longevity is everything. Thanks for the pic.
I wonder how one widened a couple feet would do? Travis, would it push easier?
Not sure, it pushes pretty damn easy as it is.
You could always buy one and widen it and let us know though
ya I would love to
This boat would have sold a long time ago if it had less Hp. Probably would have been a line for it.
The original Cummine 855 was only 360HP and the boat cruised around 11.5 kts, granted it was run at 1950-2000 rpm's out of 2100. 10.000 hrs with no issues just had the money and time so rebuilt When it was rebuilt and aftercooled the hp went to 400. Same speed but pulled it back to 1800 I think fior another 12,000 of issue free running. The Lugger has just over 11,500 hours and again issue free. 12.5 kts @ 1625 rpm's out of 2100. 14.5-5 @1750.
Closed the sale of it back in the begionning of December. Stayed local and moved about a 100 yards in the mooring field
Catarina is a looker! Id there a molded top for the 42 or are they stick built? What sort of accommodations are there below and forward...I know its been a while but it looks like a recreational boat and am curious.
Catarina has the molded top, it is a 3 piece windscreen design, for recreational boats that translates into 3 windows, for the commercial guys they opt to go with six.
Up forward there can be bunks, hanging lockers, head and shower, anything you want really. That one in particular had four bunks, a state room, an open area to starboard for access to the systems and storage arena. The galley was up with a large, oil fired range with oven. Decked out pretty nicely for a commercial fishing rig.
That is probably where it would have gone too for a while if I bought it. You never did reply to the PMs including the PM about the fed permit.
Thanks Travis. Looks and sounds like a nice rig. Modest hp (by todays standard) giving nice speeds. Do you have any pics of the foc'sle of any of your 42s? Trying to get a scale of the space.
Why are the recreational boats 3 windows? I like the 4-5 look...is there a functional reason that recc guys want 3 and commercial more?
I can save my stupid questions for PMs, email, or a phone call if better.
