This week Dame finishes our genset dry exhaust stack. Thanks to the help of Dennis from Canada we replace the dodgy exhaust studs and do a few repairs to the massive turbo on our Cummins main engine. And we finally get our 3cyl D722 Kubota up and running (and holy crap does it run). Hope you enjoy Jess & Dame

This week, the Genset is getting some more love. We have now rebuilt the fuel pump and are on our way to a start-up but before we do that we need to build an exhaust stack so we don't smoke ourselves out of the engine room. The Main engine also got some much-needed attention. Previously we found some dodgy exhaust studs on our turbo manifold, these were filed away in the one day before we launch I need to deal with them draw... Well, today was there day of reckoning! Dennis gave them hell and got them out. They were in absolute garbage condition but couldn't see just how bad until we had them out. Finally, we were able to fire up the main engine again, now that the dodgy studs had been replaced and test our hydraulic steering components. Damien fitted these several years ago but we have never been able to test them until now.

This week, the long-awaited launch of Malcolms 1,100hp Tri-Hull! It was pretty awesome to be involved and able to help out. Dennis and I also got stuck into our main generator. The alternator, starter motor and fan belt were replaced and the fuel injection pump was stripped down, some bizarre internal water damage fixed, rebuilt and fitted back into the engine ready for a startup.

This week we have Dennis over from Canada, helping us start up our small 6kva generator, Rod is over from New Zealand helping his father do some work on the alloy tri hull over the fence and he popped over to give us a hand to redesign the sea door hinge so we can remove some wobbles (Rod originally helped us design the hinge in CAD), we will work on the door over the next three weeks in between other bigger jobs. Plus we have a little surprise for you at the end... Hope you enjoy To help us continue our channel and the project please consider supporting Project Brupeg https://www.patreon.com/join/Brupeg?

This week after thinking we had finished the job, we realised the rudder wasn't sitting right, so it took a few days but we managed to get it sitting as it should and the new grease lubricating system working correctly. Brupeg now has a fully functioning rebuilt rudder! To see these episodes early and extra behind the scenes content, consider supporting the project https://www.patreon.com/join/Brupeg?

This week Brupeg gets a rudder, we will now be able to flip flop with the best of them! We solved the grease issue on the top bearing and spent too many hours with a forklift putting the rudder on and off making sure everything was perfect before we did the final bolt up. She is done and we love it. To see these episodes early and extra behind the scenes content, consider supporting the project https://www.patreon.com/join/Brupeg?

I can't believe this is our 100th episode! man time flys when you're buried in a trawler rebuild. This week we dive headfirst into or rudder rebuilding. The first step was figure out what needs to happen to the new shaft and bearings for them to fit and work as needed. We also needed to figure out why the old bearings kept dying and how to fix that going forward. One of our awesome patreons John Myers supplied and made the shaft and bearings, so we are incredibly grateful for this support as we wouldn't have been able to do this without him. Hope you enjoy Jess, Dame & Mishka

Seriously ! this was a ridiculous hinge but its very pretty and works a treat. Jess was looking at the end of her editing days as she couldn't sit upright in her lazy boy chair anymore. So we rethought the issue, who said she needs to sit up! Enter, worlds most complex hinge to allow her to lay fully reclined and edit with a screen at whatever height feels best, then tuck it away by the roof when it's not needed. It was a crazy idea that we ran with and it turned out great.

This week we strip down our new to us drone after we flew it twice and crashed it once! Plus we got one of the stainless corners welded onto the roof and made a start on a ridiculously complex hinge for Jess's Editing Mac to mount against a wall and push out of the way when not in use. A critical thing on a boat where space is a luxury.

This week was a bit of everything. as soon as we started one job something changed and we were onto something else. We tackled the stainless corners for the wheelhouse, Trimmed the seadoor a bit more and made it fit better, designed a new table for the lounge and did some CAD design work for a new hinge for the editing Mac to swing it down from the wall when in use.

This week we were on the home stretch with the sea door, the dogs were completed, the skin fitted to the pre-bent frame and the stainless sealing surface welded into the cabin. For the first time ever Brupeg has a functioning door on this side!

This week after the heartache of Nugget's passing we quickly overcame that and found our new BFF Niblet! This we baby is awesome! with a spool gun, we tackle the pivots on our alloy sea door and made a start on our stainless dogs that will latch the door tight against the rubber sealing face.

This week we bend and twist the alloy door frame that we made last week, to match the shape of the cabin side. We also farewell Nugget our trusty MIG welder after 4yrs of dedicated service, through thick and thin Nugget was right there beside us.

This week we make a start on our watertight side doors for the rear cabin. These will be bolted to the custom Pentagraph Hinges from Episode 29 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVdIb5XgG14). The door needs to be light so Jess can open and close it with ease and also so it doesn't have much momentum if opened in a seaway and turn into a guillotine. Jess makes a concerted effort to get the two pack paint off our Alloy Jet Dinghy, and Dame has a good think and misdiagnoses a problem with our welder (nugget).
