The vessel is a one-of-a-kind 2006 Ocean Rocket high performance planing hull passenger vessel for high speed maritime experience of 50 ft. over all. Sunsplash Marina, LLC/Ocean Rockets constructs limited production of these specialty passenger watercraft at Yank Marine shipyard, Tuckahoe, NJ She is a high performance reaction pump inboard diesel powered vessel designed for coastwise and limited offshore sport cruising. Her sea going hull design incorporates a sharp deadrise shallow 'V' forward entry tapering aft along a stepped hard chine and triple chine strakes to a moderate deadrise 'V' mid and near flat after section. She is provided a vertical transom stern with spray shield extensions in the topside hull structure fixed trim tabs, thrust nozzles and attached swim step. A large foredeck is forward with seating for 49 underway, but ladder leads to Flybridge here.
Electrical systems are viewed for general conformance to recognized installation practices only. Individual circuits are not tested unless specifically so stated. Electrical circuits, as possible, were turned on to ensure operability.
THE DC SYSTEM:
The vessels electrical system includes 4 heavy duty D8 twelve volt DC batteries creating two banks of 24 volt banks for engine start. These are combinable with battery switch mounted fwd. engine room bulkhead. With CAT power breaker panel center. House batteries are 2 group24 12 volt batteries in an oversized box, uncovered at the time of survey. Battery switch here is mounted on carlin frame under aft deck. Secure undersized batteries with chocks to prevent movement of over 1” and cover same. These batteries should remain covered and secured to prevent accidental shorting and/or damage to the terminals when the vessel is in use. DC house overcurrent protection is accomplished through a master breaker panel port at the Flybridge helm. The batteries are maintained by two engine alternators, port side engine 12 volt Delco rebuild 50 amp alternator and 30 amp 24 volt Delco or other rebuild done by Central Pacific Rebuilders. Twelve circuit breakers for the DC system are isolate tributary circuits. Panel and gauges at the helm exhibit signs of weather (UV damage and oxide). Panel should be reworked and properly labeled. This should be combined with other corrosion control on the bridge. Observed wiring was noted to be of the insulated stranded approved type, connections were noted captive and in good general order.
