The Birth of a 'Centennial Spray' in New Zealand!

These photos will (hopefully) record the construction of our Bruce Roberts
'Centennial Spray 38'.
MANY thanks to Blair Boats for making the project happen!

After moving the boat onto a hardstand, we have elected to install all of the plumbing, electrical and electronic systems (as far as possible) prior to final interior painting and varnishing. In doing so, we hope to minimise damage to the finished interior.

One of the first tasks was to run all of the electrical cable. Only fully tinned marine cable has been used. This photo shows cables that will be terminated at the main AC and DC distribution boards.

Cable runs
Making off the boards

The same bunch of cables, but after MANY hours of work organising and terminating. The AC circuits are on the left, the DC circuits are on the right.

This photo shows the back of the DC board. Note that each cable has been labeled where it is terminated onto the circuit breakers.

AC board

The back of the AC board is similar in appearance to the DC board, except that there are fewer breakers. Note the small pneumatic tubes leading to the back of the Tank Tender head unit. This one unit can measure the levels in all of our fuel and water tanks from the one location. The other small panels under the AC breakers are the Start/Stop panel for the auxiliary motor and the remote panel for the solar regulator.

This is the front of the main AC/DC distribution board.

Board fronts

The carving on the trailboards has been completed. While the carving is not very clear in this photo, one of the boards is shown here being trial-fitted prior to drilling of mounting holes and final painting.
