Hi folks - I have just purchased from an insurance company in Auckland a 4600scb, which was partially sunk after hitting some rocks. Nice little project lol, and otherwise a lovely boat in reasonable condition. Starbd strut was punched up into the hull allowing a good inflow of sea water. Anything above floor level appears to be largely ok, and anything below floor level got flooded, including the 450hp engines,gearboxes, genset and various electronics such as batteries, chargers, inverter, transformer etc. The hull repair should be relatively straightforward, however one of the biggest difficulties is getting the engines out, as there does not seem to be any provision in the original build/design for big enough floor hatches for such events.
Oh well, if anyone is interested I can post updates. Also if anyone has has any equipment for the 4600scb for sale, I would love to know about it please, or any thoughts or suggestions lol.
