Marinette 39 Sedan Transport

Postby shade2u2 » Fri May 18, 2018 11:09 am

Well I'm finally getting close to transporting our new to us 39 Sedan. Some final details with the purchase have taken some time.
The plan is to take it from Lake St Clair to Catawba Island on the water on Thursday, 5/31/18. There is a chance it could be the Thursday before if some last minute items work out. Friday can be my weather delay day. I'm trying to avoid
Tim Beattie Transport will load it at Catawba Island on 6/2 or 6/3 to deliver to Marietta on the Ohio River on 6/3.
Prior to that I will be removing the Flybridge at the marina. The marina will lift it and locate on bow.
I have started my flybridge removal checklist, but some things are unknown to me at this time.
Thank you all for your help so far.

At the risk of repeating what you already know, here's one piece of the transportation plan that always is mentioned by those who've moved a boat with a flybridge. That is, be very careful to label every wire you disconnect. That will save you much aggravation at the other end.

I'd add one more for the arrival side: Consider adding another cable opening besides the one already in place- before you replace the FB. I added an instrument topsides and could barely cram the cable into the existing opening. With the flybridge in place, it would have been a tough job. Even a two inch access would be useful someday. I'm sure you'll think of this, too, but make certain the opening isn't level with the floor (a short piece of pipe rising above the floor will do it) so water can't easily intrude.

Much luck with your trip

I plan to have the boat down to Catawba Landing on Thursday 5/31.
Remove Flybridge
Transport on 6/2 or 6/3.
I have connectors, labels, tape, markers. I hope I can figure it all out.
I like the idea of adding a 2nd conduit.

These are some of the unused and "not connected to anything" that I pulled from the boat when disconnecting things for flybridge removal. This is not all of it but most...
