    DC's boat ont he front page

    I loved seeing that pic. Our boat was built by Driscoll Custom Boats. The fourth of four built from designs by S&S. Pemiquid Brushfire Spendor Weatherly. 53 ft loa 37'11" lwl and the only yawl in the group. The perfect boat for us... cocktails for 12, dinner for 4, sleeps 2 Quattro

    J/24 Style Motor Mount

    We made these mounts a little more robust. A couple of boats in our fleet had others that were cracking. Quattro

    J/24 Style Motor Mount

    We needed a new motor mount for our J24. So had four of these built. Made from a J24 boom section. Light and strong. powder coated black. I have one available if you are interested.

    J/24 Adjustable Mast Step

    I designed a new slider and had it built. works great and I have a couple extra if anyone is interested. Our butt slider was distorted and had corrosion under the heel casting. and like most J24 that have raced, the I-beam is full of holes. So I built a new slider, made it longer, so my hole for pinning is in fresh I-beam. Attached a strong point to anchor the turnbuckle. Made a strong anchor point for fixed end. Purchased a new heel casting and a Ronstan turnbuckle for adjustment. I have two available for sale. Quattro

    StFYC 1970's -80's

    Zaida, didn't check spelling before posting. The second owner renamed her 'Weatherly' and after a few years we purchased her and brought her to Puget Sound I do think this is a list of the BNs that cared for the boat. I used to call myself a BN, now my tax return says 'Yacht Technician' I posted this in hopes someone might know them or a relative. Just to say thank you, and recognize their good work.

    StFYC 1970's -80's

    Our S&S 53 yawl was built By Driscoll in San Diego, 1972. Her original owner kept her in SF for over 20 years. 'Ziada' . She has been with us in the PNW for over 20 years now, and I have been all through the boat, but I came across something I had not seen before. I know the owner and the people whom he trusted to care for her, loved her. Does anyone recognize these two names?

    Ok, so I am sorry newbie status. I lost the Quattro login when the forums changed last. I should have addressed the post to KIm, I know him. I have worked on FL. Kim has been on my boat. I have installed furnaces with the support of Sure Marine since the early 90's I wanted to point it out because is a pain to fix after the fact. I apologize for the asshat way I posted this morning Quattro

    Take a closer look at the pump.... MP 1200.bmp

    The pump should be the low in the system. There should be a smooth run from the tank to pump. I would not use that hard 90 at the tank. The pump inlet and outlet are at the same level. Air will be trapped in the pump housing. Should be outlet over inlet. Quattro

    I see plumbing issues already That pump will trap air, mounted incorrectly This system will not work without waterflow.
