Just a quick update to my my Norman 32'
Sweet Briar, since I last registered it with the site, I have:
Engine: fitted new piston rings, main bearings, flexible mounts & coupling, water pump, jabsco impellor, new filters, diesel pipe work. Runs like a dream and due to new enamelling in light blue looks great as well.
Enfield Z drive: fully rebuilt by third party and repainted, new rudder extension in process of being fitted, transom plate has been fitted and leg will be fitted imminently.
Hull: upper structure repainted, hull currently stripped to gel coat and in process of repairing and eternal sanding Etc. New Maranti rubbing strakes ordered to match original shape. Marina quoted me £220 for 100' a local farm wood yard charged me £40 for the wood and £10 shaping, great deal!
I have also relocated the original engine bay vents from the inside rear deck well to the stern facing backwards. This was done to limit the amount of noise caused by the engine when running.
