YP668 or CT2
30KW DELCO Gen-set. 3 phase, 120 volt DELTA, coupled to a 2-71HV prime mover. Comes with installed switchboard, spare head and parts. This is an 80' NAVY YP. If you google this you will find more information than can be posted here. She will make a great passage maker ("great loop") boat, club dive boat, training or work boat. She is in Tarpon Springs, FL. She would be great in the islands, CUBA bound or anything else you can dream of.I can finish the boat to your specification at a reasonable price here in Tarpon Springs FL. Four, brand new 4 valve 6-71s (165hp) motors were installed in 1994 while in "special" duty at Groton, CT. We purchased the boat in Boston and brought her down (outside) in 2006. The two engines outboard are at about 1400+ hrs and the two inboard ones 1100+. Feb 2008 we hauled her and spent the next 7 months working on her bottom. The boat is double planked with VG Alaskan Yellow Cedar (one of the worlds most durable wood) about 2 inches thick, with the exception of the Garboard, Broad and Shear planks which are VG white Oak. Frames are also white oak on 12 inch centers. We wooded the boat and reefed all the seams. Then proceeded to replace a few thousand fasteners. We splined the keel to the gabroard and the garboard to the broad with VG fir and Smiths all-wood. The hull was allowed to dry out for months and then about 40 gallons of Smiths CPES applied. All seams and fastener countersinks were then payed with 3m 5200. Then 30 gallons Sherwin Williams Corothane Mio Aluminum Polyurethane. Plus 30 gallons Sherwin Williams Corothane Coal Tar Polyurethane on top of that. And Finally 20 Gallons Sherwin Williams Seaguard ablative bottom paint. The worm-shoe was replaced with a 1" thick plate of Starboard which was bonded to sheets of micarta and then bed in 3m 5200. The Keel is a 17 layer white oak laminate. We lifted the boat off of the marine rail with a single 50 ton jack to install the worm-shoe. Now with the boat only being supported at two points 60 feet apart we checked every door and hatch and there was no binding anywhere. This boat is built like a tank. We R&R'd every valve and sea-cock as well as installing new monel grease zirks in the sea-cocks. We went into the fuel tanks and cleaned spotless while installing ports for a fuel polishing system. The tanks were and are like new inside with the original beautiful hard epoxy finish. The freshwater tank is Monel as is the black tank. She is copper clad for light Ice along the waterline and wrapped under the counter at the stern. This also takes the abuse of floating debris. This boat can be an enormous project for the faint of heart or minimally, put her straight to work. The shipyard the boat is in builds 2 to three 300 ton commercial fishing vessels a year and has done so for more than 30 years. Any work I can not personally do can be had from the yard at a lower rate than almost anywhere on the eastern seaboard. We have all blueprints and manuals. There were about 25 of this class boat built for training the midshipman at Annapolis how to run a ship. Then, when women came into the school they had to build larger boats and the 108 series begin. The slideshow link is how we purchased the boat from the Boston Police.
We have over 1 gb of photos of all the work since we purchased the boat. Everything we did is photo documented. The batteries by the way are C&D agms with about 90% life remaining I will in the next day or so link all the photos, Manuals and drawings of the boat here. I just have not figured out the best way to do this here tonight. Give me a call if you want to talk further. We bought the boat to become "loopers". Sadly we can not retire this way.  Bill
