I'm thinking the first trip would be the Rideau Canal, then the Trent-Severn into Georgian Bay. Erie Canal is definitely on the bucket list. Lake Champlain and the Champlain Canal to the Hudson and places south.

Just a lil' bit of what I've been up to these last few days.

Working out the run of the exhaust piping. First up the Vetus Waterlock Muffler.

Image

I had envisioned a straight run to the transom along the port stringer. Didn't work out that way though. Had to put a jog in it before getting to the gooseneck.

Image

Managed to get the port side diesel tank strapped down. That's two tanks strapped down now and two more to go.

And my latest Youtube vLog update:

Hi,
Thanks for the video, I will never have to mount a tank but is is nevertheless interesting how one attaches such a tank and it seems you planned to make it so that you can exchange the tank in the future if it is needed. Build on I love to follow your build of a real ship.
Greetings from Karl

This Vetus waterlock muffler is so big the only place I could fit it was above the port stringer along side the jack shaft. It's in a bit of a PITA location and will be a big obstacle.

Image

The straps holding it up are 1/16" stainless and I've got enough lag screws in it to lift the Titanic. :lol: There is an isolating strip of rubber inside the ring for chafe protection.

In the middle of a heat wave of sorts up here in the 'Great White North' so no boat shed for this ole' fart for awhile. :(
