Work Done

Specializing in Intelligent Design

Being a 64 year old boat, Neoga has had a lot of work done. On this page you’ll find a (pretty much) chronological list. I purchased her in September of 2000. Any work done prior to that was done by the former owner, so I have to take his word on precisely when and what was done. I’ve been able to see most of it, so I’m reasonably sure of the accuracy. 

Work Done 1990-2000 (by former owner)

Decks glassed (epoxy & glass over original teak) for heat reduction (boat was in Florida)

Aft 10 ft. of the boat (from the main traveler aft, including all frames, all planking, transom and deck) completely replaced

Bottom sheathed in Egyptian Cotton and Epoxy for worm protection

All Standing Rigging replaced including new turnbuckles & Sta-Lock terminals in 1996

Wire Halyards replaced (Main, Jib & Staysail) in 1996. All rope running rigging new 1996 and later. (+Jib Halyard Block replaced 2002)

New Fuel tanks (custom built aluminum - 35 gal. each with cleanouts) installed under the cockpit - access through doors in the cabin

New water tank (custom built aluminum with access covers - approx. 150 gallons) installed under the cabin sole on centerline.

Datamarine Speed, Depth & Wind instruments installed (Depth is now “erratic” - see below for new Navman Fishfinder)

Refastened all planking with bronze screws (I’ve checked at least a dozen places personally & they are all good bronze)

Furuno 1621 Mark II Radar installed (1997?)

Cap rail (along top of bulwarks) replaced (1998?)

Salon sole replaced with pressure treated plywood & carpeted. Pilot House sole replaced with new varnished teak

Work I have done since Fall 2000

Note that the boat partially sank (got low in the water would be more accurate) prior to my purchase (Spring of 2000 - water was approx. 6 inches above the cabin sole). This was caused by hitting a bladder tank in the gulf stream & blowing a hose off the head discharge seacock. Double clamps & checking them frequently are a good idea, no?

The water in the boat ruined the engine and possibly the transmission, and may have damaged the wiring, so all were replaced. Every area touched by the high water was steam cleaned and closely examined for damage. The only structural problem was that the bottom 6-12 inches of 2 bulkheads partially delaminated. These were carefully repaired.

Engine & Transmission replaced with a new Yanmar 4JH3E & rebuilt Borg Warner VelvetDrive (Yanmar transmission wouldn’t fit and the BW unit had a longer warranty). They currently have 125 hours on them. Different prop installed as well as new cutlass bearing & repacked (dripless) stuffing box. She cruises 7.5 knots @ 2300 rpm & approx. 0.5 gal. per hour. 2 instrument panels: one below (Yanmar) & one in the cockpit (Stewart Warner gauges covered with a portlight). New control cables to the binnacle. New exhaust (3” - per Yanmar specs) & muffler. All hoses to & from engine were replaced with new.

Entire boat rewired (AC & DC) with tinned copper marine wire. All wiring & Inverter installation to ABYC specs. AC outlets are all GFCI protected.

Galvanic Isolator & Prosine 2.0 Inverter/Charger installed (2000 watt sine wave AC with 100 Amp battery charger)

3 Deka Solar Deep Cycle Gel Cell 8D house batteries (880 Amp hour capacity total). House and starting batteries are entirely separate systems

New Deka Starting and Windlass Batteries (conventional lead acid - the best for this application)

All new propane locker (2 5 lb. tanks) installed in cockpit with overboard drains. New solenoids (one for stove, one for heater) and belowdeck propane controls with new alarm.

New Force 10 3 burner & thermostatic oven stove

New Force 10 Cabin Heater

All new plumbing hoses & clamps: Seawater, Fresh, & Discharge. 3 Wilcox Crittenden Seacocks (not new, but all relapped, greased, & adjusted). 

New Seaward 6 gal. hot water heater (AC & Engine powered)

Head rebuilt (plus spare rebuild kit on board)

Forward cabin V Berths replaced with athwartships queen size berth. All original pieces were saved so she can be put back to original if desired.

New Standard Horizon VHF/Loud Hailer, with “RAM Mike” set up at helm

Bilge pumps: New Rule 1700 Automatic, Par electric diaphragm (manually switched - to get that last little bit - this pump was not new, but was rebuilt at time of installation) & a New Whale Gusher manual pump installed in the cockpit

New carpet in main salon & forward cabin

All new Balmar 100 Amp Alternator, Balmar MaxCharge 612 Regulator for the house batteries & Balmar Digital DuoCharge for starting & windlass batteries. Installed 05/2003

New bow anchor roller assembly (installed 06/2003 of cast bronze - most people think it’s original - which was my goal) & new Lewmar 45 lb. stainless steel CQR type anchor with 60 ft. of galvanized 3/8 chain and 300 ft. 3/4 nylon rode. Boat also has a 45 lb. Danforth & a 35 lb. galvanized CQR style stern anchor, each with rodes.

New Navman 4150 Fishfinder with depth & speed

New Adler-Barbour ColdMachine12 volt refrigeration (installed 07/2003)

Topsides taken down to bare wood, refaired and repainted spring 2005. This included rebuilding all the plank edges, as the former owner had V’ed all the seams and ”caulked” them with 3M 5200. Since this was an entirely inappropriate method of finishing, all 5200 was removed and she is now back to her original smooth sided configuration using traditional Petitt seam compound. The hull was completely faired, followed by 2 coats of primer and 4 coats of the Brightsides Seattle Gray. All prep and painting done exactly to Interlux specs.

Summer of 2005: New Raymarine Instruments - Speed, Depth & Wind (Analog)
