Little update on Marianne. Since engines and genset were pulled the bottom was checked for rot, old motor mount holes were drilled ,doweled and set in epoxtmy, bilge was painted. Received the one delayed not shipped engine and the diesel tank has been set in place for the new genset. Bilge paint was alegedly Chris Craft color from Sandusky Paint Co. There are more pics out there from others working on the boat which I should acquire in near future. #captainalbert

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
