619-218- 1018 Greg Moore
This page is our weekly progress log for the Greg Moore re-conversion and refit of the Model 60 Long range sportfisher 1994 Mikelson yacht 750 HP 24 knot as of May 13th 2015.
All new engines, mechanical, electrical, appliances, gel kote and paint will be 100% restored and the hull core readied to like new condition.  Sea trails to commence upon completion. 

        Greg Moore's team is doing complete refit down to hull. Project begins Feb 24th, 2014 at the Host shipyard Neilson and Beaumonts shipyard on shelter island and is Estimated to take 16 months and cost $210,000 cash plus one and half year of the engineers time and 4000 additional man hours to make her beautiful again. Thats $300,000 hard solid new boat build effort as of May 13th 2015. 
      Boat Yard San Diego will facilitate restoration after Shelter Island Boat yards Wayne host crane and engine removal services. Naval Architectural support by Dick Peterson and his knowledgeable staff of brokers at Mikelson yachts. 
    Diesel Engine technical support by James Garcia of Hawthorne never materialized, nor did support from valley diesel the MTU dealer  nor did a half a dozen top diesel engine consultants and especially ricks machine shop they all sucked. We were on our own.  So we hired from MTU of germany the shop foreman Hans Fuhrer and we bought our own diesel engine shop for close to a quarter million dollars for just the tools. A year later we are in full production with several other german diesel rebuilds underway. We quite possibly may have the best engine rebuild shop in the county right now. Other major engine sales agencies are asking us to rebuild for them. We like offering the heavy material handling and machine shop capabilities all in house.

All 4 Engines out of boat and into warehouse for repair

Upon further inspection the engineer suggested we pull all 4 engines completely out of boat. A meeting was called and after careful consideration the engineers numbers showed the engines would be better and over it would be about the same cost since it will make restoring the surrounding engine room to like new condition much easier. 

   All four engines were pulled out on shelter island, we were towed there and just chose the closest yard with crane we could use. Dick Peterson of Mikelson Yachts was there and stopped by to give us tips on the over all project. It took quite a long time to get engines and generators ready for extraction. They must be stripped down to block to be able to slide out the biggest opening. There's a trick to getting them out. It took many hours of engineering to work everything out but we made up for it at the shipyard. All four engines were out and on Greg Moores truck in 4 hours and the boat was left undamaged. A fallen engine could easily sink a boat or crush a contractor. 
  The engines will be gin a total over haul with all new parts. The cases that are good and main frame work and block or main housings that appear new upon inspection are kept, cleaned up and machined at machine shop for perfect surfaces. All new parts will be used. 
  The crank and cam will need to be inspected. Any microscopic signs of pitting would demand replacement. A routine test at machine shop test the integrity of block, crank and cams. All bearings and seals will be new. All airways and intakes simply cleaned up. Much of marinization is aluminum and when inspected under microscope showed very little signs of corrosion other than typical surface oxidation. Those are all calls the engineer must make. he whips out the micrometer and magna camera and determines parts that are rejects. each part must be perfect and meet perfect specs. You cant have high horsepower diesel engines and not rebuild them by the book. fast paced cowboy mechanics will not work well on these engines. This are pocet protector math and thousands of measurements and double checks. 
   The warehouse is dedicated to just the over haul of these engines. A clean room environment free of contamination and sabotage. Secured entry and video surveillance keep an eye on project 24/7 and images post online.
    Next report will be the result of the test on the pass or failed components.
