Volvo D1-13

Thanks for everyones comments. I have had negative and positive comments and after a re think have decided that once my 24ft eventide has been refurbished it will be like new so am now going to fit a new volvo penta D1-13hp inboard diesel. This should be a lot quieter and have less vibration than th...

Hi John Great to hear from you and also thanks for the valued advise. I have just found and downloaded a copy of the instruction book from a volvo penta web site so that is awesome. When I bought the yacht it had an MD1 7hp with it (out of the yacht) in pieces. I honestly believe it is not work the ...

Volvo Penta Inboard

I have just bought a 1970 volvo penta MD1B, 10bhp diesel inboard motor that I am going to fit to my 24ft Eventide.
Does any have or know where I could get a copy of the workshop manual and owners manual for this lovely wee motor.

Kind regards
mike

White lead paste and linseed oil putty

Hello, I am restoring a 24ft Eventide. The hull and all other timber is solid teak planked. Some joins will need filling above and below waterline. I am going to use white lead paste mixed with putty so as to allow for any timber movement without cracking joins. Is anyone able to tell me what the mi...

Thanks John. I am learning so much about my craft from this site. Truly amazing and awesome stuff from some very knowledgeable people like yourself. Most appreciated. I will look at the keels when I have it out of water in November. In the bilge area the bolt heads showing appear to be wasting so wa...

Hi Chris I appreciated your help with that. The fella I got it off told me it was built in the early 1960's in Hongkong and sailed to New Zealand. Does the lettering and numbers on the sail only signify the plan number or is there other info as well. I am keen to get as much info on this craft as po...

Hi Mike What a lovely looking craft. I think I have seen it but just can't put my finger on which mooring area. I will keep my eyes open this summer. I will haul my 24ft Eventide out this November to do some work and repaint her. Before I got it, it had been sitting on a mooring in the harbour for 2...

Hi Nigel Just wondering what you did in the finish. I have just bought a similar 24ft Eventide. Haven't had it out of the water yet so not sure how the two keels are fixed or constructed. The bolts showing on the inside of bilge area are very rusty and a little wasted. My thoughts are to remove thes...
