So this faucet has never had cold water (since I got the boat). The copper pipe had froze and expanded and it has been plugged in the bilge. I’m thinking I need a 1/2″ FIP at both ends? (It’s a faucet size connector in the bilge) In 7′ length?? Or what’s the best solution??

When the time springs forward or falls back is when you are supposed to check your bilge pumps, smoke detectors and CO2 monitors… I’m a little behind, but don’t forget!!!

Broke down the couch, removed all the flooring and furniture. Got it all off the boat and opened the engine hatches for the first time since we had the boat. Notice the Chris Craft hand written part numbers on the hatches. I think thats cool. Getting closer to pulling the engines and genset. #captainalbert #northshoremarina

The things you find cleaning out the boat. This was the thermostat that used to turn on all of the exposed household 110 light bulbs when it got too cold in the engine room #missginger

This is a 1958 Cruisers. It has a Lark 35 on it. I think it is actually a 1957. Sticker expired 2018 so it has been in use until recently. Motor, gas tank pad, battery box under seat. Prop shaft has no wobble and turned freely. Some bilge dirt, but not bad. Wood looks good even at base of transom – Owner wants $3,000, in 61109 Rockford IL (and we ask for a 501c3 contribution for facilitating the find/sale)

This is how things went down today in a video nutshell. Seems every yard has their own methods and system and I enjoy seeing it. The guys were thorough and know their craft.
She is tucked away and although the video is a brief recap, this process did take a while and I suspect these guys stayed late to finish. We are the last boat in and tucked away. Ready for the next step. #northshoremarina #captainalbert #grandhaven
