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.

Inspect vessel stem to stern and conduct professional preboarding survey of engines, hull, gensets, electrical, thru hulls, piping and plumbing, systems and deck hardware. 

Procure parts and repair dockside electrical cord with two new connector ends by hubbel. Shore cord was cut back 12 inches each end and new connectors coated with electrical dialectric non corrosive materials. Electrical main panel restoration begun. 

Install temporary electrical power distribution, lighting, internet access, and basic entertainment system. Purchase 32" LED TV and install. Remove and discard all old electronic entertainment products and take them to offsite e-waste disposal. 

Flybridge windows were all closed and flybridge eyesinglass was refastened for storms and to arrest more water from coming aboard. 

All old owners and gear that was stored yet never used was removed. Over a dozen boxes of dead weight and containers were removed. All deck hatches, vents, drawers, seat covers, bed covers all removed and boat inspected down to the core to make a list of each discrepancy found. 

All life jackets, dock lines and deck gear was fresh water washed, dried and restowed. All bathrooms and closet drawers emptied. All old appliances surveyed and list was made to replace appliances later. 

Bilges were emptied and drained and all inside of hull bilges inspected for leaks and seaworthyness. Everything looked real good and checked out AOK but several rubber hoses are cracked and will be replaced. 

Several big electrical cables were removed to begin the complete electrical redo. A list of all motors were prepared to order every motor on boat and replace with new. 

All old tools and anything rusted or used was removed and disposed of.
