    Falmouth Pilot 6 ton - 1963

    This is one of the last built (no 37). Sold as part finished, she was not completed until the 1990s and therefore is not standard. The internal layout is superior to normal versions in that the dining table (folding) does not obstruct forward access. In addition the mast is alloy, not wooden and the cockpit is non detachable! The companionway ladder is one piece, and not split.

    A good sea boat with a 1.7 ton keel!

    However, work needs to done on the deck/cockpit and the price reflects this. See Deck section for details.

    Specification:

    Hull:
    Pitch Pine on Oak frames
    Dimensions: length 24', draft 4ft, beam 8ft
    The hull was recaulked below the waterline with cotton and Shell Tixophalte, after all old caulking had been removed.

    Keel:
    1.7 tons cast iron. Very wide! Designed to allow taking level ground safely for scrubbing off etc

    Deck:
    Marine ply, covered with waterproof painted fabric, double pull anchor winch and bits, cockpit winches, Pullpit and Pushpit, safety rails, steering compass. The Starboard side of the deck needs replacing as the original ply has rotted. The estimated material cost of doing this is about £150 and about 3 days work. The rest of the deck was replaced in 2017. Several main deck beams were replaced in 2012.

    In addition, the upper rear of the cockpit needs replacing along with a section of the Port side(marine ply)

    Engine:
    Volvo 2002 sea water cooled. 10 gallon fuel tank. Uses no oil. Flexible drive coupling. Darglow self feathering prop. Prop seals replaced 2018.

    Slight blow-by on one injector led to the removal of the cylinder head and the fitting with new, fully tested Bosch injectors, with new sleeves (This year). One valve seat has been replaced and the valves have been re-ground with new oil seals. A new starter motor has also been fitted. The engine starts first compression.

    There is no sign of wear in the cylinder bores. The engine should now be good for another 20 years!

    However, up to now small quantites of mineral oil are added to the diesel, as modern diesel is designed for high pressure systems with electronic control. In addidtion, Anti-Fuel Bug chemical is added. The Volvo uses a recirculation fuel system, which slowly heats up the tank. Just right for bug breeding!

    Electrics:
    Auxiliary battery, Air-X wind turbine - .4KW, 240 circuit with shore cable. Automatic bilge pump backed up by Whale hand pump

    Electronics:
    Echo sounder, VHF radio with cockpit speaker, GPS - external with repeater. Autohelm AH800+

    Mast:
    Alloy with additional halyards - overhauled 2016. Twin insulated back stays

    Sails:
    2 reef mainsail, roller jib. Genoa,no 1 jib, spinnaker with pole, spare mainsail

    Accommodation:
    4 berth

    Cooker:
    2 burner with grill - gas with spare bottle.

    Sink:
    Stainless with hand water pump (15 gals)

    Work carried out:
    2018: Overhaul engine top end.
    2017: Overhaul deck and recover with waterproof synthetic fabric, fit new cockpit covers. Repainted topsides, new nuts on keel bolts
    2016: Overhaul mast Replace aerial.
    2015: Recaulk below waterline with cotton and Shell Tixophalte
    2012: Replace entire deck and 4 main beams.
    2009: Remove main keel bolts and replace 4 with new ones. Construct new rudder bearings.
