New owner of CSY 44 WT
« on: January 16, 2010, 08:21:09 PM »
Greetings All,
Allow me to introduce myself as the newest member and owner of the CSY 44 WT Afterglow. I am the high bidder on the Ebay auction completed just today. I had been in touch with the previous owners who helped inform me as to her true condition and gleaned invaluable information for a fair bid. Thank you Rich and Debi! I look forward to being part of the CSY community and have looked forward to this day since my honeymoon on the CSY 33 Vagamundo 19 years ago.
Yes, she needs some work but well within my abilities (and budget). Any and all ideas, info and help is appreciated and I hope I can only be of help and support to others as well.
Until Later,
Captain Douglas R. Vaughn
USCG 50T Master
ASA Instructor

Congratulations - welcome to the family. Where are you planning on keeping the boat? We now have 4 CSYs at my marina (one at anchor and one on the way here) in North East Florida. It seems like these boats are attracted to each other.

Let me know if I can be of any help. From the pictures on the net you have a beautiful boat!

I tried having a bad day once but I did not like it

Hello Peter,
I will be keeping her in Stuart, Florida. I have already placed the purple pushpin on the map. I am looking forward to starting the process. I will regularly post updates as they become newsworthy...

Leaving Tuesday for an extended time to work on Afterglow, all in preparation to move to her new dock. I will be organizing a punch list and ordering a ton of new parts, mostly for the Perkins 4236. The big project though will be taking the bottom paint off, repairing all fiberglass/gelcoat issues, applying a penetrating epoxy coat and then at least 5 coats of epoxy barrier coat, probably more like 6 or 7 coats. I will be using the new Sea Hawk remover. Here is what it says:
Superior and Safer Marine Paint Remover.
Remove Over 10 Layers of Paint in Just One Application! This environmentally safe formula is biodegradable, nonflammable, low odor and has no methylene chloride or other harsh solvents.
I will report back on the accuracy of that statement ( I will have all my grinders and sanders ).
Then its' all new through-hulls and new rudder installed. I will be exhausted I am sure but with a grin the whole time!
Until Later...

I love the statements "environmentally safe formula is biodegradable".

Dave,
Thanks for the welcome. I have followed your barrier coat posts with great interest (and all your posts). I will be doing much the same but I must wait for warmer weather. Until then, the old paint will come off and all the throughhulls will be replaced.
Can you tell me what hp diesel you have and the prop style and size you use.
Mine is a 1998 Perkins 4236 85HP with a RH 1 1/2" shaft and 3 blade fixed prop at 22x20. I am thinking of going to a 22x22.
Have great fun on your travels. I may be in your wake someday.
Doug

Thanks guys for the responses. I just back after a week in Mobile where I surveyed the boat and worked on many systems. The good news is that most of the electronics work; inverter, water maker, vhf, etc. The solar panels put out and the voltage regulator seem to work. The fridge motor would not fire up even with power to the compressor motor. I'll need to work on that one.
I prepare the mast and boat for transport to my home yard where I will step the mast and re-rig her.
I stopped in Williston, Florida where I dropped off the old rudder to Foss Foam Rudders. They will make a new one from their mold.
I go back later in the month to finish the epoxy barrier job, replace all the thru-hulls and seacocks, install the rudder and follow the boat home.
There is more to do but I'll spare the details for now. Just glad to be home for a while!
