Falmouth Pilot 6 ton – 1963This 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.Specification:Hull: Pitch Pine on Oak framesDimensions: length 24′, draft 4ft, beam 8ftKeel: 1.7 tons cast iron. Very wide!

Prop seals replaced 2018.Recently, 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. 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 anti-corrosion anode has been replaced.There is no sign of wear in the cylinder bores and oil consumption is negligable. The engine should now be good for another 20 years!Engine running precautions have included adding small quantites of mineral oil 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!Two filters fuel filters are used.
