Engines and Drive Train / Re: Cutlass bearing CSY 37
« Last post by Peter Hibbard on April 07, 2018, 07:16:51 AM »
Ken, I replaced my cutlass bearing on my CSY37B 1978 and I also have a 1 1/4" shaft.  Mine was a 2" X 1 1/4" bearing.

Regards,

Engines and Drive Train / Cutlass bearing CSY 37
« Last post by Mease on March 30, 2018, 11:33:03 AM »
Does anyone know the size for the cutlass bearing on a 1979 37?  I'm hauling and want to have it ready due to a lack of a good supplier here in the Grenadines. My shaft size in 1 1/4'.
Thank on advance for your help

Sherry, it's not Chilly Pepper.  She's not for sale.  There are several 44 W/O's in the Miami area besides mine.  Today while cruising  up from the Keys, I saw Peter Schmidt's old boat, now owned by his son, a Miami Harbor Pilot.  It's not that one, either.  I'm pretty sure I have seen the one that's for sale day sailing to Key Biscayne from the Grove, but I cannot recall the name of that boat.  Also near my dock is Tullamore Due, another 44 W/O.  Matthew

TXY 44 078 0178 

Yes, this is the normal CSY 44 numbering system.  Your boat is #78 of the Walkover model, and the 0178 means the hull layup was started in January 1978.  (What was in my database, source unknown, was 01/77, but I have updated it).

So, will you keep the name Doudou, or change it?  Does it have the original engine? (My info says Westerbeke)  Full keel or shoal keel?  (Full = 6-7 ft draft, Shoal = 4.5-5.5 ft draft).

I found indeed starboard stern under the paint the following number : TXY 44078 C178  may be the C is a 0, not sure. The number if the aft Cabin is a different format. I did not find any magic marker marks for now. Does this number has any sens with you database?
Sincerely

Thanks for posting, Doug.  We have terrible internet here, I can't get the pics to paint full screen.  Is there a boat name visible in the pics?  The only one I know of in the Miami area is Chilly Pepper, but that boat is in good enough condition that they shouldn't be selling for such a low price (and I think we'd have heard from them directly if they were selling).

Anyone looking, CSY's are great boats.  Very rugged and not bad sailing boats.  Designed for Caribbean conditions, by someone who knew cruising (vs today's modern boats where they are selling glitz for the marina set, not real cruising boats).

However, a boat offered at $55K has got to be a distress sale.  Meaning low prior maintenance.  If you are a handy person, this might be a good deal.  But if not, it will be a nightmare project.

How do you know it doesn't have a real CSY hull number?  Have you checked the stern?  I think the hull number is supposed to be engraved on the right side of the stern.  If the boat has been painted (likely, since it is so old), the hull number that is normally engraved on the stern (in 1.25 cm height, approximately), may not be visible.

It may be possible to deduce what hull number it is... pull the drawers out and look to see if there is a number written in magic marker on the bottom of the drawers.

If the boat was contracted new from the factory by a Dutch or French owner, it may well have been commissioned with the hull number / format required by France or the Netherlands.  But I would bet that the drawers might tell what hull number (in CSY terms) it is.

I hope you have an easy time of restoring her.  The CSY is a GREAT world cruising boat.  Still missing our CSY 44 WT (a little bit...catamarans rock too, if you can afford them).

Thanks Soggy Geek,

DOUDOU has been well damaged thru IRMA. her mast is broken but I m keen to restore her once again. I hope I will find some help with your forum and database. I dont understand why the HIN is different of what it should be, and if it it really a CSY how could we find the original hull number, unless it is not done by CSY..I will update the info for your database with what i have soon, late owners...

Hi Stephane, I have an entry for DouDou in the database, but it's not complete--no hull number though it says it was made in 1977.  Here's what I have:  (FS = For Sale)

FS 01/2011 $139K - YW#526986
FS 11/2009 $139K - •YW# 1398-526986
10-01 FS 10/02 $180K
99 FS$105-110K

Was damaged in storm in '97 but restored.
Owned since new.

The only owner contact info I have seems to be a broker in St. Maarten.

Hope this helps.
