Yes, I came to that conclusion once I installed the plugs. I'm thinking now of a piece of 12ga copper wire should do the trick.Nice work! Looks like you used regular cotter pins in your clean outs. I assume they go all the way through. Looks like it might be tedious to remove once installed.
Looks good. ..lots of work but you will have a great boat for a good price when is all done! Hope to see you on the water next summer!Well, back at it finally this weekend. With all the holiday parties and work I have not been able to get up to the lake lately to work on the boat.
I was able to install a new stainless scupper with an aluminum backing plate. I used 3M 5200 on the backing plate and around the scupper lip. The temperature dropped here in Texas to the 40s-50s, so it'll take a few days for the 5200 to cure.
I was also able to pull the cleanout plugs using my cherry picker. They came right out. I cleaned them up and then rebuilt the lower part using new Yamaha kits. I also added drilled a hole and put in pins to prevent any premature releases.
I have new pump nozzles, so I should be able to get those in today, as well as straighten out the bent reverse cable on the port motor.
Next is a new deck fitting the the top part of the scupper drain (my old one broke when removing the hose), and then I'll put the scupper hose back in (I have all the parts). I also need to do a couple of more oil changes as the oil is still a bit milky in both motors.
I'm shooting for a water test by New Years Eve.
Very nice work!Yes, I came to that conclusion once I installed the plugs. I'm thinking now of a piece of 12ga copper wire should do the trick.
Yes, I came to that conclusion myself. Unfortunately I used 5200 to seal up the new scupper, so I don't want remove it again. I've ordered the pipe expander--pretty sure that will do the trick.It is tough sometimes to get the hose back on the scupper.
We had a member pull the hose out thru the open scupper hole and attach it to the valve with the scupper nut still inside the boat and then slip it all back into the boat and then apply the sealant and tighten the nut up,
I am out there at least once a season. We have friends who have a house on an ox bow of the Trinity, so we run the Trinity to the very north side of the lake. The lake is HUGE. We usually hole up in an alcove somewhere and float. Lots of shallow 3'-ish places where you can just float and relax. Do watch for those logs, though. One bit my boat a couple of years back, which is where I learned many of my fiberglass skills...Nice to see some fellow Livingston folks. I’ve always frequented lake Sam Rayburn but now I’m in Livingston and just bought a SX210. Any areas I should avoid on Lake Livingston? Any must see spots?
