Haines Hunter 635L Mercruiser 6.2L Repower
This Haines Hunter 635L is getting an engine repower! The former Mercruiser 228 is being replaced by a Mercruiser 6.2L 300hp Bravo I package.
Sealink Marine have had to preset the engine alignment before installing the engine and flow coating the hull. This is done due to the tight space in the hull. By pre-setting the alignment, we can make sure the engine fits and allow for any fabrication work that may be needed.
Following this, the Mercruiser 6.2L was lifted out of the hull again so more modification work could be done. The engine mounts have been modified. Fresh holes were cut to take the new gimbal bearing. And the side wall was altered to fit the new control box. In addition to this, the engine bay had to be modified to fit the engine before it could be fitted and permanently aligned. The wiring and harnesses have now been connected and the next step is to flow coat the Haines Huner 635L floor. Check out all the progress below:
Regal Mercruiser 4.3 Engine Changeover
This 18ft Regal is undergoing an engine change over. The former Mercruiser 4.3 LX engine suffered water ingress. Water ingress was a result of the manifold failing. Rather than repairing the engine and manifolds, it was more economical to replace the engine entirely. The Sealink Marine ream have now removed the old water damaged engine, and are preparing to install a second hand Mercruiser 4.3L EFI engine. Check out the progress below.
Haines Hunter 635L Repower Preparation
Sealink Marine are preparing this Haines Hunter 635L for a repower. The gauges, controls, engine, transom and sterndrive have already been removed. Our team are currently preparing the floor for flow coat. So far, the carpet has been removed and the floor is being sanded. Flow coat can help to protect the boat floor from the damaging effects of water, and help reduce corrosion. By doing this, the Haines Hunter 635L can become the ideal fishing boat!

Riva 3200 Transom Plates Corroded
Here’s a quick update on the Riva 3200 that has had the hull cleaned up.
As you can see from the photos below, the transom plates have been completely destroyed by corrosion after being in the water for so long! Now the Sealink Marine team have to look into replacing the transom plates and continue cleaning up any other problems.
Riva 3200 Hull Clean Up After 4 Years in the Water
This Riva 3200 has been in the water for at least 4 years. Sealink Marine have to scrape off and remove all of the barnacles, muscles and even a crab! Our service manager Declan even had trouble finding the bung under all the barnacles and slime. After all the debris is removed the Sealink team can assess the damage. If there are no issues found the team can antifoul the hull to preserve it in the water.
Check out some photos of the hull:
