I'm looking to clean up the arse of my 77 Charger Hornet.  It has what I believe is a Jacuzzi YJ with an American Turbine energizer Kit installed....

Did the pump just get butchered in here and I can simply clean up and re seal?  Or are there options such as transom plates I've seen around?  I could DIY one... with some tips from the team here...

While I'm at it I also wanted to replace the old oxidized exhaust tips too..  They are glassed in so I'm nervous about removing... any advice there would be appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance!

That is an insert pump, and the hull was designed with the intake already in the hull. I forget the name of the model.

Berkeley E pumps and Panther pumps are similar in design regarding the hull.

Although not impossible to remove, these pumps were epoxied in. (Sea Goin epoxy), and usually don't need to be removed for rebuilding.

Cleaning it up is a matter of silicon removal/repair, and then paint, but you are kind of stuck with what you have, without reengineering the bottom of the boat.

The exhaust tips are probably siliconed in, and might need a little persuasion. (BFH) Sometimes they will cleanup pretty good just by sanding and polishing.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Dan!  Is it special silicone that I need to use in this?

It should already be epoxied in,  only minimal amounts of silicone is needed.

I use DAP 100% silicone, from
Home Depot Speed and Marine.  8)
