We have been a little bit quiet for the last few weeks, here is why, we have just completed some maintenance and upgrades on the Ferry MV Banksia, our standby / charter ferry.
This years works included a complete replacement of all running gear from shaft coupling to propeller (Stern Gland, Stern Bearing, Stern Tube, New Rear Propeller Shaft, retouch and balance of Propeller),
We have also upgraded to a completely new cooling system, including new oil cooler and heat exchanger imported from the Bowman via Gardner Marine in the UK, new custom engineered pump and alternator brackets and removed the 65 year old keel cooling.
A major achievement has been locating and fixing a 35 odd year old leak around the hog timber, which until Andrew Botting put his skills to it, has persisted through the years and many repair efforts by others.
On electricals we have installed a new entertainment system including PA system, new dash and switches.
And plenty of other little bits and pieces..
Any queries about the content of any photo just ask for an explanation.
Our thanks to Andrew and Troy Botting Traditional Shipwrights, Kane Botting from Deep V Marine Mechanics and AJ Welch for electrical installations. And the staff and crew at Fenwicks Marina for antifouling and a lovely coat of prop speed. ... See MoreSee Less
