75' Sanger SuperJet - Winter rebuild
« on: December 13, 2019, 10:36:53 am »
I picked this up late summer and just started the tear down for rebuild by April 2020. Here's the progress and updates daily/weekly. It's had different motors and interior, when I got it there was an Olds 455 and junk interior. Old's had two dead holes and my BBC had just spun the bottom end, so pulled and sold the OLDs rebuilding the BBC. This boat has been on the site a few times and really needed some love so here we go!

HA HA sorry about the sideways pics!

Day1 compression test and pulling the Olds

Day 3 Foam and pump removal.

We did this for a couple of reasons;
1. typically with a boat this old the foam is full or water and or mold, so it's best to remove it
2. the bow eye is messed up and cannot be fixed properly with out some new backing and fiber glass on the inside.

I was thankful the foam was not water logged or moldy, got lucky.
Foam filled 4 55-gal bags due to shovel and hand size removal. Only 20lbs total, I really expected 40-80lbs

Also pulled the jet pump to get rebuilt.

Day 4 Floor removal - NASTY

Someone added a cover-up sheet at some point which trapped the OG floor and foam in, so water could not get out. So it just soaked, rotted and molded.... This is kinda what I expected of the bow foam.

75% out so Day 5 is gonna be nasty with a grinder to get this all out.

The vibrator tool worked ok. I was scared to dig deep and go thru the main hull glass, but when I realized the floor was actually two floors I was able to get after it for the most part. The OG floor is way better glassed at the edges so I'll have to grind it off and try not to burn thru the main hull.

The OG hull glass looks perfect under all that crap when wiped out it's still sealed and clean, different epoxies I guess.

Day 5 was as expected for the most part, nasty grinder action. Got it all out now need to DA it smooth and decide what to do about stringers. Gotta find some kiln dried wood and marine plywood.

Full on white out, had the fan blowing it out the shop door but that didn't help much.

Day 6 was easy... load up the knocking engine and drop off at machine shop.
Rebuilt should be a BBC 468 8.5:1 basic build up.

Way to get after it!

Are you putting a blower on it?  If NA, I would strongly recommend more compression.

Back at it after all the XMas and New Years trips (Glamis & Parker)
Day 7 - pull the trailer out from under the boat to get rebuilt, make dolly for the boat and prep for new stringers.

Going to sand blast the trailer and fix all the years of abuse, rust and old bits...
Only found one major item we didn't see when purchasing, there's a screw poking thru the bottom of the hull from whoever botched the previous floor repair.  Other wise the bottom is as expected with rock/sand rash from beaching. All that will get sanded down, glass added and re-gelled.

Day 8 - stripped down the trailer and sent it to be sand blasted so we can cut grind and refit a few things, then send back for powder coating. Wasn't as rusty as I originally thought. The biggest issue was the float bar tube was completely rusted thru. The rest was just surface rust and normal ware for 40+yrs

Day 9 - got the trailer back from blasting to fix, repair and update some items.
Blasting turned out OK, nothing crazy besides the 2" float bar beam which we knew was rotted out.
Made some inner fender liners, cut off the tongue, replaced the entire tongue and float bar with 3", added 1-1/2" down the center (just for extra supports, not really needed).
Raised and modded the bunk mounts 1-1/2" up, the jet intake was hitting the support bars WTF! this will also gain some fender clearance.

The trailer was four pieces (which I assume is typical for this type of trailer), well we welded it all together as one and added the center support for additional strength overall.

Next is to get new parts for all the axles and figure out paint. i was going to powder coat it but thinking of just epoxy paint due to some of the issues we found and how ugly the power will look in spots since we can't smooth it out without some bondo filler.

Also got new fuel tanks. Mine were 10gal 48" long, new used ones are 12gal 60" long. Had to repair some pin holes from previous rubbing.

Day 10 - Wow I'm excited about some WOOD!

It's been a rough road finding the right wood for the stringers.

1st wood was Kiln dried doug fir. It's "dried" so the moisture is removed and the wood stays true. This is what everyone told me to buy... Well I get some about $60 two 2x6x16ft pieces. They are all outside in the weather and Bakersfield is morning dew and fog ridden during the winters. Sure enough I get the "dried" wood home and in my shop two days later it bends and twists, the exact thing it's not supposed to do.

2nd wood is LVL (laminated vaneer lumber). This is like plywood beams for construction, it's supposed to be layered all the same direction which gives it it's strength and also stays true. Ordered this from Lowes $50 (I think they messed up), wood shows up and it's ugly... One side is great (down side) the other upside is grey and looks to be delaminating (surely sitting up to the sun). I ponder using this for a few weeks trying to find someone to plain it down to clear up the ugly. No dice. Most of the guys said the wood would ruin their plainers due to the glues. Also once plained no ganuatee of a good side, could be holes and glue stained.

3rd wood and last try before just doing ti wrong... Went to another lumber yard and tried to ordered "straight grain/clear" klin dried doug fir again. Told the guys I wanted like  AAA quality wood. They called around and found Hemlock Vertical grain Clear 2x6x12ft at $150. I was really nervous, but WOW this is exactly what I expected from the start of this journey.

Left LVL, Center Hemlock, Right Kiln Dried doug fir

Day 11 - made decent progress

Trailer bunks and fender skirts all prepped for carpet.

Pulled the stringer box and grinded till I couldn't take any more... more to come then cut/shape/size up the new stringers.
Crazy this boat hasn't seen water since September 2019 and the rotten area's are still wet. I've had heaters and blowers in it for weeks back in December, crazy. This is why we go this far in restoration, if you don't the problem still exists and continues to spread.

Even got the Mrs. to help polish on the shiny bits.

Day 13 - kinda frustrated. Since I'm not a wood craftsmen this is taking longer then expected to get the right results. I'm afraid to cut to much and ruin $150 in wood.
Got the stringers all cut and fitted to the "ends" (Dash bulkhead-front and Transom-rear). Wood is tight and sitting down in the corners, BUT there is a huge gap down the center 1/2-3/4" so I'm struggling to decide how to trim cut down the ends to get it all nice and tight around 1/8" gap max. The 4ft straight edge has less then a 1/8" gap no matter where I put it down the length but the 12ft stringers show 1/2-3/4" gap in the center.
Anyway here are the progress pics...

When I replaced the stringers in my Liberty I used a hand planer to on the bottom of the new stringers to fit the contour of the hull. Thinking back I don’t remember a significant gap anywhere.

I also used a router to cut a radius in the top of the stringers. Doing this made it easier to lay glass over.

Place the stringers in the hull then mark the places that do not make contact with the hull. You want to remove wood in the places that are already in contact with the hull. This took me several times to get the fitment where I wanted it. It was time consuming but it went faster as I got better with the hand planer

Day 14 - Got the stringers all cut/trimmed and shaped to fit 1/8" or less gap. You can see we started with 3/4" to 1" of gap had to shape the stringer to the hull. Actually cut out more then a inch from the front bulkhead and 1/2" off the transom at varied slopes 2ft-3ft-4ft 1/4" at a time. Skill saw, sander, elect and hand planers all used to get there.

Day 15 - finally done shaping the stringers time for glass work. So I'm calling this a 3/4 shallow stringer. 3/4 since it only goes to the front bulkhead at the dash (ie 3/4's of boat length) shallow since I cut it down to have a flat floor. Doing this gives me what "I" want and keeps the original 1/4 stringer look. It does add strength to the boat like a full stringer but not "as" strong since it's 3/4 and shallow.

Day 16 - Stringers going in first lay down of glasswork! My buddie is an aviation mechanic/builder for experimental aircraft so he does a lot of fiberglass and carbon fiber work, so I asked him to help with this part. Made up some peanut butter paste (flocks - finely ground cotton fiber) to bond the wood to the floor and a couple of straps to hold it down for today. Tomorrow final glasswork then let it cure out.

We moved the boat from my house to the airport in his trailer on the dolly I built!

We cross/over laid the glass work 5 layers, which equals 8 layers in the crossover sections.
Three different types of glass the majority of it in the box pictured above. Some "bid tape" bi-directional glass for the odd shapes and vertical to flat work. Some other glass i didn't catch the name of for the strapped sections, high strength stuff. Plus the peanut butter Flock used as glue and to round the bottom seam from wood to boat so it's not a 90deg.

Day 18 - Great news we have a running engine again! Video from the machine shop during break in https://www.glamisdunes.com/invision/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=871732.

Wood floors getting built and prepped. Shame to cover those nice new stringers but I wanted a flat floor for ease of install/maintenance. I did cut some access holes in the front to allow me to run cables/wiring down the channels. I also plan to add access hatches for additional storage below the floor. I will not be putting back the foam under the floor. This is 5/8" birch plywood, putting resin on the bottom to seal the wood from water intrusion.

Day 21-24 - SEATS! All about seat building. This has taken some time to get fine tuned from ZERO to almost there. Little more building in some custom items and finish work.
Lots of delays due to the stay home crap but I’m really close, but still waiting on parts. These should be 100% be the end of the week unless my parts get another weeks delay (three weeks delay so far).

I started out with an idea/design flow from our old boats interior captain chairs, side rear seat and an flat engine cover/block.

The Sanger is narrower ad shorter both height and width then my old boat but the seats still need to "fit" average people so it get small real quick.
5/8" base 22" wide 54" deep is the overall size to work with. Then add in foam dimensions and things shrink up more and more.
Front bucket is planned for 18" deep/wide/tall. 1/8" masonite was used to build the round shape. The black barrel chair was from my office and it provided some "guidance" for size/shape.
Rear side bench will end up around 23" wide and 18" deep for rear passengers. I have found Knee to Knee is more comfortable as a passenger then wedging my knees against the back of the drivers seat found in most rear bench setups.
The 1x and 2x blocking is for the upholstery guys to staple too.

The fuel tanks I bought are 12" longer then the factory tanks. So as you can see they ran up into the rear seats. Notching and some sort of cover either glass/plastic/fabric will be made.

Couple of custom items to get at "spy" the low cup holder. More custom later on as I get my delayed parts....

Still chasing Gel and cannot figure it out. Keeps flashing off way to fast and i've reduced the hardner 3x from recommended amount (it was 90 plus degrees).
Bow eye repair all done and ready for final gel/paint and assembly

getting back at it
prepping the back side of the dash, never looked and man it's delaminating! Scrape scrape scrape then I'll apply a layer of glass and resin

Oh and a sneak peak trying to decide on flat or angle gauges, plus a backer plate for the helm

Back at it Days 41-43

Wife likes the gauges flat, I like them angled so we'll have to fight this one out at final assembly!
Got some bondo on the trailer, wire wheel/sanded off some weld spatter, etc... and primered 1/2 of it. Need to de-grease and prime the back half.

and the big news flipped the boat upside down again to finish the Gel work that had really stopped all the progress. Thanks to a buddie who paints cars, he finally helped out and the Gel was sprayed down and looks great. It's not perfect but I'm good with it since it only see the water and trailer anyway.

I guess a pre-gel pic might help tell the story some  :mad:

There were screw holes, thin keel "beach rash", busted bow eye and some gouges that need to be fixed.

Day 45-46 - no pics
got the trailer 100% prepped ready to paint but wind wouldn't cooperate, so wet sanded the sides to smooth out all the lines from gel and the old painted graphics while it was upside down way easier.

next step is to cut/buff/polish the sides and decide on which insert to use the rock grate or loader, then we can flip it back for the last time

We've been doing a lot of polishing, fitting some items. Wired the dash all up and prepped the harness from dash to transom. Got the rails dialed in. Started on the gas tanks, moved the pickup to the bottom, added breathers and a sight tube. Bilge coated the engine bay. Oh, even had time to help @76Mantra455 on his floor repairs, poor guys been getting beat up by shops not coming thru with promised work.

Got the dash/harness and all but three wires connected last night (fuel pump, bilge and oil temp sender). 90% of the stainless hard water lines are done.

Moving on to $1000 worth of AN fittings and hoses for the oil and fuel systems!

Got the hard lines 100% done last night, man I love how they look. Tanks set in but not 100%. Steering cable and helm almost sorted out.
Never looks like much in the pictures but man it's a lot of hours and work just get things to 100%

Waiting on parts now.... We did get a couple of things done over the weekend.
Fab'd a new ride plate and got the pump 100% minus cables.
Sanded 1K, 2K, cut and polished the top side

Waiting on oil and fuel lines so we can finish this build. About 10hrs left when the parts show up.

Test went well, noo leaks and everything works as it should. Only a couple of issues to refine.

I couldn't go over 4k rpm with the temporary water pressure gauge setup we did, it kept blowing the hose off at 25psi.
The pass side header has two pin holes spitting water out and making a mess. Hard spot to weld on and now they are coated, so...... maybe a JB weld solution.

Next test and tune adjust ride plate, wedge, diverter one at a time to see how they effect the boats attitude.
