2009

Projects – continued

After grinding, drying and coating (epoxy with glass over wood) , filling & fairing was planned for 2009. Since the year 2000 as we restorated our former yacht „Murks 2“,  we exclusively use „AWLFAIR Fairing Compound“ by AWLGRIP. In my opinion this is the best product on the market, although the pink colour may not be everybodys taste 🙂 Also we started with the „installation“ of water drains for the deck at the locations of the rail supports by cutting the toe rail. Of course we reinforced and restored the whole area underneath and around the supports. In this year a new fuel supply system with VOLVO PENTA pre-filter-system was installed. Additional attention was paid to the gearbox, especially by Frank. There was no year, in which we had no problems with it. But the gear was definitely not the only weakness of the machinery – as we would learn later.
