Some of the hardest details to get right are alternator brackets. It is a question of drive belt, alignment, and structure. And these 7kW DC alternators – which can consume as much as 20 HP – are the most difficult of all.
The heavy steel brackets might look excessive, but they are a necessity if you expect reliable operation over time.
Looking here at the hot water heaters. The upper is electric and heated by the Webasto diesel boiler, and the lower (barely shown) is boiler only. Allowance has been made for R and R of the cal rod of the upper heater.
The lower portion of the heater tank rack. The bilge pump (black, left) is for the lazarette. The grey expansion tank is for the heating system.
There are two of these accumulator tanks as part of the stabilizer system, one for each actuator.
Staying with the tank theme, these are custom roto-molded grey and black water tanks, about eighty gallons each. There are a pair in the engine room and another set in the forepeak (slightly smaller at 65 gallons). They are above the waterline and empty via gravity, or a vacuum fitting on deck if a shore pump out is available.
The start of the auxiliary salt water supply in the engine room. This manifold will feed fridge and air con compressors, water maker, and wash down pumps. Only the latter is self-priming. There is a constant upward slope to help clear air.
Finally, a pair of stabilizer coffer dam lids. There is a small visual inspection port, then a hinged lid for basic maintenance. Should the actuator mechanism need removing, the entire lid unbolts.
