The Freeman Cruisers ClubClub Freeman Cruisers Owners Vinyl Boat Names

The art of traditional boat sign writing has all but disappeared. We are now able to provide personalised vinyl adhesive names in a variety of colours and an extensive range of type settings. Applying a new set of names is an easy task these days as the vinyl is self adhesive. We offer a Freeman Club Member discount on all new names too.

Personalised Lifebuoy Rings With discounts available for Freeman Club members you can personalise a classic lifebuoy ring with your boats name or a personal message to add your own mark on board!

Hand made in house with our vinyl printer you can choose from blue, black, red, brown and silver lettering, multiple typefaces and have up to forty characters (ten in each white section A, B, C, D). The lifebuoy ring measures 65cm in diameter and is available with either red or blue sleeves and nylon safety rope threaded around the lifering. Alan Titchmarsh’s ‘Love Your Garden’ team got in touch with us for a very special request for one of our personalised lifebuoy rings to help transform an uninspiring garden near Southampton, for a very special paediatric nurse and her family, into a nautical themed ‘cruise ship’ garden in the shape of the prow of a boat.





Order today with Red or Blue sleeves Personalised Lifebuoy Ring Testimonial: “I would like to say a big THANK YOU to you and your team, who put together and made the lifebuoy ring that I ordered from you last week, for my partners birthday. It was delivered on time and my partner was over the moon with it. Thank you once again.”

Mastic Tape Sealant

Mastic tape forms the seal between the fittings and the boat. We find it is the best solution to help prevent water ingress to the hull or superstructure. The properties in mastic tape allow it to flex with the movement of your boat and when tightened down it leaves a thick flexible membrane.

Deck Fittings Re-chroming & Exchange Parts Re-chroming can make your existing fittings look like new. The items are cleaned, triple chrome plated and polished. Prices vary depending on the quantity of items. Not every item on your boat may need re-chroming, it is a good idea to look at your boat, flash your eyes like a camera, and re-chrome the items that stand out and have caught your eye. These are the highly visible fittings and the ones that will benefit the most from re-chroming.

Deck and furniture fittings before and after re-chroming - they come back looking like new!

We now also have some original Freeman fittings rechromed and ready for exchange with your exisitng fitting (where available). Simply bring in your existing fitting and walk away with a rechromed one! It is best to call ahead to check availability as we continually rotate & rechrome the original fittings.

Deck Fittings Boat Cabin Ventilation The original plastic mushroom ventilator fitted to the Classic style Freeman boats bearing the “S/L” emblem is now obsolete but the hole can be adapted to suit the look-alike replacement (DF249A) which are slightly larger. However, this is a major benefit for the Boat Safety Scheme which requires more ventilation in the cabin. Placing a piece of plastic hose or a hose clip on the shaft, so the ventilator cannot be fully closed, turns it into a permanently opened ventilator which is a part of the Boat Safety Scheme requirements.

Cabin Vent DF249A

An Interior Liner (DF249AA) can be added as a finishing touch inside. A fly screen (see page 83) can stop insects entering but they also restrict air flow, so additional ventilation maybe required to compensate.

Deck Fittings Wiper Motors, Arms & Blades Most original wiper blades are still available, occasionally it is necessary to change the wiper arm to match a current wiper blade attachment. On the Classic Range of Freemans the restriction is the diameter of the hole in the windscreen and the depth of the motor in relation to the angle of the windscreen. DF256B fulfils most Freemans requirements.

Freeman Canopies

For many of the Freeman Classic range of boats we have very economical, ready made canopies available. Made from PVC material; blue on the exterior and grey on the interior. Fitting is quite simple but does need some consideration and time, probably best likened to hanging patterned wallpaper! A Fitting guidance sheet is included and if you collect from the shop we will be pleased to demonstrate the fitting. We also run our tailor-made service which will require us to pattern your boat (available locally to us only) where canopies can be made to order in a choice of colours and materials with the option of additional zips, windows, window blinds and more.

Freeman Canopies Include:

• Main canopy with rear, zipped, roll up window section. • Two side-curtains with windows. • Eyelet kit & Fitting Guidance sheet.

The side-curtains can be put up or taken down in various ways, for example, to form a wheelhouse by having the two front side curtains up and the back hood and back side curtains down. With a five piece hood there are numerous combinations (patterning required). F22 Mk2 F23 F26

Hardtop Kits include: • The double skinned glassfibre hardtop with an insulating core. • Two stainless steel upright hardtop back supports. • A tailored hood can be organised when fitted at Sheridan Marine.

Hardtop Handrail Kit HT062


Canopies & Covers High Rail Hoods & Slide Kits High rail hoods allow further space in the cockpit by giving a near vertical back to the hood and separating the cross bars, which in turn allows a door way in each side curtain. It is usually also possible to convert an existing hood with the Freeman canopy slide rail kit. Whilst this adds another stage to raising and lowering the hood, it eliminates the cross bar, making access to the cockpit considerably easier; without the need of additional canopy modifications in many cases too!

Freeman Fitted Covers

Freeman Fitted Covers are an excellent way to keep the boat wrapped up, out of the elements, ashore or afloat. Made from lightweight yet durable ‘Silver Odyssey’ material these boat covers feature:

• Two zipped openings for access into the cockpit. • Draw string ties which pull the cover around the bottom of the rubbing strake. • Velcro flaps for mooring ropes at the bow & stern. • Pull tags all around for additional tie down when covering your boat out of the water. • Extra durable protection at hard wearing areas. Key benefits include:

Zipped Doors

Tie Down Tags

• Easy to fit ashore or afloat. • Allows access to boat without removal of the cover. • Provides protection from the elements all year round. • Specially designed for Freemans!

Velcro Rope Flaps

All covers are designed for particular Freeman models to achieve a better fit. For example F22 Mk2 with hardtop - F22 Mk2 without hardtop - F23 range, F24, F26, F27 etc. and so are made to order.

Standard Covers

Also available...

Freeman Fitted Cover Storage Bag HF190A

There are also a wide variety of standard economical covers available to keep your boat protected during the winter months from snow, wind and falling leaves. They come in standard sizes which, unfortunately, are not boat shaped; however they can be moulded with the aid of clip-on pull tags, additional eyelets & rope. Topside Cover

Window Refurbishment The Freeman Cruiser ‘Classic’ Window Range Freeman 22 Mk1’s were produced with three different types of window, as shown.



Window Refurbishment Seals

The Freeman Cruiser ‘Classic’ range of boats usually have the windows fitted to the boat with external rubber seals. The window frames themselves also have internal rubbers that ensure the window is water tight.


The Freeman Window Rubber Kits come with the materials required for refurbishment. The Silver Insert strip for the external rubbers comes as standard, although a black insert is available and slightly cheaper too - but does not look as smart.

The type C window was produced for the Freeman 22 Mk1’s, 22 Mk2’s & Freeman 23’s and is the most common style.

The Window Rubber Kits have been put together to make it easier for you. However all rubbers and internal seals are sold separately too, meaning that you can repair all your windows or just one window at a time, just let us know your requirements. The most popular kits are shown below. Please contact us if your model is not listed. Freeman Model

A practical approach at window refurbishment

01491 652085

The ‘Classic style’ windows are held in by an external rubber & locking insert, or, on the ‘New style’ windows, by a series of screws with mastic tape & hidden with a screw cover (FW029). After removing the windows, the second part of the job is to strip the frame down and renew the internal rubbers, nylons and felts. If you wish you can bring us the frames for refurbishment and then re-install the windows yourself.

Freeman 28 windows are similar to the Freeman 22 & 23 range but squared off.

Front Facing Polycarbonate Windows

It is important to use polycarbonate windows at the front of the Freeman 22’s and 23’s as glass or Perspex is not suitable.

Freeman Window Rubber Insert Tool FW003D

The front windows have to cope with multiple movements and stress levels. It is therefore vital that the material is allowed to move. This may seem strange as you want the window to be water tight! The properties of polycarbonate mean that movement is absorbed and it is also resistant to cracking and shattering. F22 Mk1 Top There are set sizes for S FW055A each model, however, as O/S FW056A each window was cut out by hand there are various differences along the way. We stock Standard (S) & Over Size (O/S) windows to try and combat this these may still need to be F22 Mk1 Bottom S FW055B trimmed! F22 Mk2 front facing windows. O/S FW056B

Freeman Cruiser 25, 26 & 32 Windows

The larger Classic Freeman Cruisers, like the Freeman 26 & 32, have windows that are screwed to the boat and can be either aluminium or chrome brass. These simply require the mastic tape & screw cover to refit to the boat. Mastic Tape 15m CM018 1m CM019A 1ft CM019

Window Refurbishment The Freeman Cruiser ‘New Style’ Window Range There are, unfortunately, four manufacturers of the ‘New Style’ Freeman Cruiser windows, resulting in the same pattern but with different seals. This makes replacing the window seals slightly more tricky so sending in a sample of your requirement is appreciated and a telephone call helps enormously too. The Freeman Cruiser ‘New Style’ range was fitted with this angular style of frame.

Freeman 27 cabin window layout.

Some glass in these windows is laminated and some is toughened. This makes a difference to the internal rubber thickness. Some Hopper windows are within a frame, others are bare glass with an aluminium top rail. All of these variations affect the rubbers we supply to you, so please be prepared to help us too alternatively you can bring the frames in for us to refurbish. It is usual to find ‘U’ section and flat section rubbers, polypile and neoprene sticky backed absorbent strips within the ‘New Style’ window frames - depending on model. Materials are available to suit most situations.

Window Frame Refurbishment Materials

The Freeman Cruisers ‘New Style’ boats, like the Freeman 24 & 27’s, have aluminium windows that are screwed to the boat. These simply require the mastic tape & screw cover to refit to the boat. Freeman Model Screw Cover Kits (Excluding Windscreen)

Replacement Glass

Most Freeman windows have toughened glass built to the marine grade standard BS 857 which has now been superseded by ISOE2. This is a higher grade of glass toughening than is readily available for household windows, for example. On the larger Freemans a higher standard and thicker glass is often found.

We try to carry popular spare toughened glass panels, others are made to order (please supply an accurate template).

Laminated glass was used on a few of the ‘New Style’ Range boats but moisture absorbs into the plastic with a capillary action making the glass go opaque (milky). We frequently have to change these for toughened glass.

Diamond rings are the most common cause of scratches in glass! When cleaning windows it is a good idea to turn diamonds around to face the palm of your hand so avoiding scratching / cutting into the glass.

Deck Equipment Upper & Lower Freeman Rubbing Strakes Upper rubbing strakes on Freeman Cruisers come in two basic formats, most boats have wood, aluminium and rubber whereas some of the New Style Freeman cruisers have a larger aluminium section and corresponding rubber. The wood comes in 12ft lengths and requires mastic tape behind it. The aluminium is also in 12ft sections and is specially softened so that it will make the right angle bend at the stern of the boats, and with care, even the vertical drop for the steps in the deck particularly useful for the F22’s & F26’s stepped deck. The rubber is then simply inserted into the aluminium section.

Rubbing Strake Curves

Pre-formed wood rubbing strake curves for the Freeman 22 Mk2 and the Freeman 26 make fitting the upper rubbing strake to the stepped deck on these models so much easier.

Freeman 26 Upper Rubbing Strake Curve WP032A

Lower Rubbing Strakes

Whilst the full lengths of lower rubbing strake come in approximately 13ft lengths there are 1 metre lengths with opposite tapers so that you can repair the front and back end sections, which are the most vulnerable.

Brass ‘D’ Section Strakes

‘D’ Section is sometimes used to cap the wood instead of the aluminium and rubber. This is popular on the Freeman 32 Mk1’s and Mk2’s and the Freeman 22 narrow beam boats.

Rubber Care & Cleaning

Large ‘B’ Section Boat Rubbing Strake Rubber

The Ultra Violet light from the sun appears to deteriorate rubber making it go hard and brittle. When it leaves black streaks down the boats sides and black marks on your fingers and clothes it is time to change the rubbers. Rubber care helps to keep the rubber more supple for a longer period of time and stain removers are designed to remove the black streaks from the boat.

Deck Equipment Boarding Ladders

Ladders can usually be Fixed or Removable.

Boarding ladders make it easier to climb on and off of the boat when swimming or boarding a dinghy. Obviously, they are a great safety feature too as it is harder than you think to re-board a boat if you have the misfortune of falling in. When trying to reboard there is nothing to put your feet against to push yourself up whilst others are helping you out of the water.

They also help to give access to the water line for any maintenance such as cleaning, or, in the event of an emergency, such as removing a rope from around the propeller. Freeman Mahogany Removeable Boarding Ladders

This revised version of the original Freeman wooden boarding ladder is constructed from varnished mahogany and is able to be folded up for storage and down for use. Each step has a white, anti-slip step pad on.

Bathing Platforms & Swim Ladders Bathing platforms are available in two popular sizes and can be fitted in a variety of ways. Single bathing platforms can be fitted individually or in pairs. Double bathing platforms span the width of the boat. Platforms are usually set fairly close to the water for swimming or boarding a dinghy. They can also be set slightly higher so that they can be used for storing a dinghy on its side or even storing mountain bikes, generators, outboard engines etc.

Deck Equipment Freeman Dinghy Davits Davits are the ‘arms’ usually hung from the back of the boat, on which you haul your dinghy up the stern of the cruiser out of the water - a convenient way to carry your tender. Mr Freeman made specific davits for fitting to the various models of Freeman Cruisers. For the Classic Range boats these davits are made to recess on the transom walk way and can be connected in such a manner that the bearing load can be spread across the transom (see right on a Freeman 23). Freeman 22 & 23 (HT011) davits have right angle stern fixings - this keeps the height. If you put davits on the flat transom you will lose height and as you pull the dinghy up it pulls the boat down, resulting in very little clearance between the boat and the water when raised; an unstable situation can arise.

Freeman 26, 30 & 32 Davits HT012

If storing the dinghy on the davits do remember to tilt it slightly towards the stern and remove the bung so that it cannot fill with water whilst you are away. Overloading is the most common cause of davits snapping.

The Freeman 26 and 30 (HT012) davits also fit on the flat deck of the transom but as there is more space on these models the davit base is flat. It is advisable to place ply wood reinforcements, preferably fibreglassed over, on the interior of the fixing area to spread the load across a wider area when fitting davits. Freeman 24, 27, 30 and 33 (HT013) davits are transom mounted with a recess so that they can be fitted at the top of the transom around the moulding line (as shown right). These boats are generally already built with internal supports ready to secure Freeman davits.

Mass produced stainless steel davits can occasionally be successfully fitted to Freeman’s. They may be folding which is useful if your marina charges extra for the additional length. Before purchasing, ensure they are a practical solution for your boat. They are often unsuitable, this is why Mr Freeman designed specific davits for specific models.

Straight Fenders

The average Freeman has three or four long fenders down each side. If further protection is required, two or four round fenders hanging from the pulpit rail to protect the flare of the bow help. Stern corner fenders are a popular addition too. Bow fenders protect the nose, particularly when mooring close to other vessels.

Mooring Ropes

Whilst there is no set standards as to the lengths of ropes required on a cruiser, as a practical rule of thumb for inland cruising it is common practice to have a pair of 8m ropes at the stern (back) and one or two 10m ropes at the bow (front). Regarding the diameter, if the rope is too thick it does not allow space on the cleats to double tie, therefore, 10mm is convenient for smaller Freemans. Advice should be sought locally for your waterways requirements.

You can either have pre-spliced with a loop & pre-cut mooring lines or rope cut by the metre from a reel.

Outboard Motors Mercury Four Stroke Petrol Outboards The Mercury 2.5Hp and 3.5Hp four stroke petrol engines are great entry level outboards for dinghies and can be useful to have on board as an emergency auxiliary engine. Often a 3.5Hp engine is a useful size motor for both pushing your tender but may also have sufficient power to manoeuvre a small cruiser to safety. These engines are among the lightest in this class weighing approximately 17kg & 18kg respectively. The conveniently positioned large grip carrying handles makes lifting the engine to and from your boat more accessible. Each of these engines has a twist grip speed control tiller with neutral and forward shift gear and 180 degree forward steering. The motor rotates through 360 degrees to allow for reverse too. Automatic decompression, easy-to-start technology, bleeds off cylinder pressure to reduce the pulling force required to start the engine. They also feature multiple trim positions which can be manually adjusted to enhance performance and enable shallow water operation. Shaft Length

Dinghy Equipment Electric Motor Accessories

With any electric outboard you will require a battery to power the motor. 12 volt marine batteries come in various Amp Hours (Ah). More Ah means more stored power but also means heavier weight - it is a good idea to consider the appropriate battery as you may need to remove this as well as the outboard! Batteries generally need storing in a battery box. The Power Centre Battery Box (BB006) is a hassle free solution for dinghies. It has easy connect battery terminals, an LED battery level indicator, 12v socket & easy-to-carry handles so that transferring between boat and shore side charging is easier and reduces the risk of acid battery spills.

British Seagull Outboards ®

The British Seagull® Outboard is synonymous with quality, hard work and reliability. There were over 2.5 million engines produced from 1931, most of which are still running and there are few people who haven’t heard of them or haven’t experienced a classic British Seagull.

Traditionalists love them as they tend to be in keeping with their classic craft. More often than not they are found in the boats bilge and still expected to run and be reliable when the main engine breaks down. Surprisingly enough they usually still start and perform in true British style. British Seagull outboards are excellent as an auxiliary engine, having plenty of torque and solid parts.

Freeman Navigator Folding Side Mounting Seat Frame

Folding Side Mounting Seat Frame

The aluminium Folding Side Mounting Seat Frame holds the Navigator Seat and attaches to the side panel, providing space underneath for a cool-box or other items. When not in use the seat can be folded down against the side panel making this the most suitable option for the navigator’s seat where it is in close proximity to the entrance of the cabin doors. The lightweight nature of the frame makes it very easy to fold away; opening up the cockpit and doorway. The frame legs tuck behind the stowed seat.

These seats can be mounted in similar ways as the Freeman Seat Range - with a bit of extra work or on a new seat pedestal. 395mm base width 375mm base length 250mm height closed 490mm height open 125mm seat thickness 125mm fixing hole centres Blue UP505A Grey UP505B White UP505C

Recovering Existing Seats & Custom Seats

Your existing seat can also be recovered in a wide selection of colours. The seat comes back as good as new, using your existing frame work. Please telephone or call in for details and colour options. This is the most effective method for the Freeman 30 and 32 Mk1 seats (shown right) and the Freeman 26 folding seat as the original hinges are no longer made. The internal woodwork can also be replaced.

Mounting Your Seats

There are various options available for mounting a seat on board including Fixed Height Seat Pedestals, Adjustable Height Seat Pedestals, the Folding Side Mounting Seat Frame and the Freeman Mahogany Fridge Boxes. The options available and ease of installation can vary depending on seat selection. The Freeman Seat range all feature a robust, flat, wooden base without pre-existing fixing points - this means you are able to position the seats in your desired location and install the fixing screws where best suits. The Economic range of seats all have predetermined pedestal fixing points. A pedestal mount installation usually features a pedestal base, pedestal leg and seat support and allows the seat and frame to be completely removed from the boat if required.

Comfort On Board Upholstery - New Cabin Cushions Changing the upholstery in your Freeman Cruiser is a simple and enjoyable way to make your boat, and yourselves, feel good and refreshed. Colour and design says a lot about character so why not bring your own character to your boat? Explore the possibilities and be inspired to create something special with brand new boat cabin cushion sets.

Create My Style

Whether you are looking to keep your Freeman Cruiser as traditional as possible by choosing a colour and design that complements & emphasises the Freeman Woodwork, or you are looking to keep everything on trend with the latest fashionable new designs there is a style to inspire everyone. Explore some of the most popular looks below and be inspired to design your own style. We have hundreds of materials, designs & colours to choose from in store so feel free to come and visit our River Thames Shop to flick through the materials available. (Material choices can change without notice). Crisp shades of blue or red suit the darker Freeman woodwork well and help emphasise the classic look. Shades of beige or stone really open up the lighter Freeman woodwork. Explore some options below.

The Classic Look Collection

The Designer Weave Collection

The Retro Collection

Step back in time to the golden era with an original Stripe, Check or Tartan pattern on board. Popular on the Freemans in the 1960’s & 1970’s, patterns are most certainly back in fashion today with their modern colour palette and design.

Freeman Cruisers were originally made with 5 inch thick foam which is much thicker than other boat manufacturers. Just one of the quality things you paid for when you bought a Freeman but probably did not realise.

We offer two design finishes, the Classic Freeman Finish and the Economy Finish. All new cushion sets include the main cabin cushions and backrests made with 5” thick foam in your chosen material. They come complete with durable piping around the edges, zipped covers to ease removal for cleaning, and material for recovering the front side panels (material will be attached to the side panels if they are brought in for recovering). Below are the details of the design finish choice: The Classic Freeman Finish

Finish Chosen. Create My Design. Option 1 - Cushion covers - cut to a ‘standard’ pattern to be placed over your existing cushion foam. An economic way of tidying your Freeman or changing with the trends! Only available in the Classic Freeman finish. Option 2 - Recovering your existing cushion foam - material tailored & fitted to your existing cushion foam. Take a note of any ill fitting or misshaped cushions so that the foam can be padded a little.

Option 3 - Complete set of new cushions - new cushion foam & covers tailored to your specification. Having your old cushions to pattern from (as long as they fit well) can be useful as all cushions were handmade to your individual boat during manufacture so variations do occur. Extras - V-Berth cushion infill - new ‘V’ shaped cushion infill tailored to your specifications to fill the forward berth gap for a larger bed space.

Extras - Complete curtain sets - new curtains with hemmed edges and

Rufflette style heading tape.

Curtains are traditionally made of the same material as the upholstery because of the relatively confined area. Of course this is all personal taste, but generally curtain material is too thin for boat windows and the area too small for the contrasts to look smart. We can usually produce new curtains as we have most of the Freeman Range sizes or we can supply material for you to make your own curtains. You choose whether they are lined and whether curtain ties are required.

Although care is taken to match colours as accurately as possible, printing can alter the appearance of colours and does not allow for exact colour reproduction. We suggest that you request samples for accuracy before ordering. As V-Berth infill cushions were an optional extra, a supplment is added.

Upholstery Care & Accessories

Removing your upholstery from the boat in the winter months helps to eliminate mould and mildew staining your material. Boats are inevitably damp and should be left ventilated if possible to cut down condensation. There are dehumidifiers and cleaners to help combat dampness too.

Materials & Roof Lining

Many of the New Style range boats are lined with marble vinyl around the window frames which has a tendency to shrink. They also have a marble foam backed vinyl on the cabin roof which tends to droop. Other boats have the same vinyl mounted to plywood boards which are connected to the roof with ‘Fir Tree’ Head Lining Clips. Unfortunately over time the foam deteriorates and the weight of the vinyl causes it to droop. Do not remove the covering completely before referring to the handbook or phoning the helpline as it is far harder to repair if the vinyl becomes completely detached from the boat’s roof.

Comfort On Board Cockpit Tables & Table Pedestals

1. Select your Table Top

Cockpit tables are a handy extra; a comfortable refinement for entertaining and relaxing. The original Freeman cockpit table was a small version of the cabin dinette table which slotted into the cockpit side. Table pedestals are available in varying heights; on to which the unique, hand made in Britain, Mahogany Freeman Tables can be mounted. Tables are usually mounted with a Table Top Support which slots onto a Table Pedestal Leg, which in turn slots into a Table Pedestal Base.

Comfort On Board Fridge-Freezer or Cool-Box? Cool-Boxes are good value, portable but do not have thermostats and generally only keep food a few degrees below ambient temperature - it is only going to chill beer and milk but not preserve food. A fridge is thermostatically controlled and operates in much the same way as a household fridge. As they are thermostatically controlled they are much more economic on battery usage. This is very important on a boat, particularly on a hot day, when the fridge may be working over-time but you may not feel like cruising to recharge the batteries. Most modern boat fridges have much improved energy efficiency and come with low voltage protection, stopping the fridge from running should the battery become too low.

Freeman Fridge Box The Freeman Fridge Box is handmade in Britain and designed to neatly house the ‘standard’ Freeman fridges and hide away the workings of the fridge while still allowing easy access to its contents. It also provides a flat top ideally suited for mounting a helm seat when installing the boat fridge box into the cockpit; particularly useful on the Freeman 22, 23, 25 & 26 boats where space elsewhere is at a premium. It is easily mountable to most flat surfaces such as your cockpit floor and is often fitted as a replacement for helm seat pedestals, allowing you to utilise the space often wasted under the helm seat. This also allows the fridge to be as close as possible to the batteries which is helps improve efficiency.

The fridge box features an over-hanging edge around the top surface and ventilation slots at the back to help the fridge run as economically as possible.

Freeman Compact Fridge Box The Freeman Compact Fridge Box has been designed to house the smallest fridge/freezer available to us (RF008). The fridge box has a cut-out floor so that the removable fridge motor can be fitted underneath, in the lower compartment found in the cockpit of many Freemans, to help utilise the space on board.

Woodwork Classic Freeman Woodwork Freeman Cruisers are renowned for their superior, high gloss, woodwork throughout the cabin and the cockpit. When hand built back in the factory, a single tree grain was used on each boat so as not to distort the lines running through the boat; detail that seems to have been lost in todays manufacturing! Woodwork is at the heart of all Freemans, and a real draw to onlookers. Whether it be the mahogany handrails, masts, rubbing strakes, cockpit side panels, fridge boxes, step boxes or the luxurious cabinets in the cabin, a high gloss, warm, mahogany finish brings the real Freeman character to life!

Freeman Mahogany Veneered Ply Freeman Ply is available for the refurbishment of your cockpit side panels. If your side panels seem to have faded it might be possible to sand back to the original veneer and re-varnish. Alternatively, fresh new boards can be cut and freshly varnished to replace the old ones. Boards are available in 4mm and 9mm in 8 x 4Ft sheets.

Woodwork Preparation & Varnish

Varnishing can be a satisfying task to undertake. Taking damaged varnish and striping back to the natural wood grain and colour, re-varnishing (with at least five coats!) to a luxurious high gloss finish, should bring a huge sense of achievement! Preparation is key to the best finish (along with some time & patience too!).

There are a number of varnish types available, some of the most popular are listed below. Hempel Favourite Varnish is the most popular exterior varnish for handrails and rubbing strakes, etc.. Whereas Hempel Classic Varnish would normally be used for interior elements such as the cockpit sides and interior panels. All our varnish is high quality, marine grade varnish, designed to withstand the marine environment. As such, they all provide good resistance to fresh water, salt water, UV from the sunlight and adverse weather.

Woodwork Thinners & Wood Sealers

It is very important to use the correct Thinners when varnishing or painting - using anything less (such as ‘turps’ or white spirit) can affect the job, leaving you with work that may have to be re-done. Unfortunately many brush cleaners can react badly with marine grade paints and varnishes - don’t even clean your brushes with the stuff as this can transfer easily. When applying varnish to wood it is important to apply thinned down varnish (approximately a 50/50 mix) so the thinned varnish is drawn into the wood for maximum protection. Wood Impreg (BP019) is a premixed formula for this very job. When applied, you can begin applying thicker varnish mixtures i.e. 80/20 & neat varnish. Typically Freemans would have had between five & seven coats of varnish!

Painting & Repairs Antifoul Preparation & Painting

Antifouling, or bottom painting, is an important task that helps maintain your boat and can aid in the prevention of osmosis. Antifoul paint is specially designed to erode away gradually while the boat is moving through the water, washing away foul matter like algae and mussels that attach themselves to your boat whilst it is moored up. It is generally a good idea to wash off the boats bottom, prepare the surface and re-paint with a coat of antifoul every year.

A Freeman 24 after a season afloat with algae & calcium build-up.

Start by washing the foreign matter from the bottom, it may be necessary to scrape off any calcium deposits using a bottom cleaner; this will also help to remove stubborn dirt and algae. Some gelcoat may be showing through the old antifoul so it is important to prime these bare patches using Underwater Primer (BP031).

Underwater Primer

How often should I re-antifoul?

A quick drying, highly effective undercoat primer for areas below the waterline. To be used on bare gelcoat, wood or metal prior to applying antifoul paint 7.4m²/L Coverage Metalic grey colour 750ml BP031 2.5Lt BP031A

A Freeman 32 with years of mussels, calcium and algae build up. It took several hours to clean off by hand, we removed hundreds of mussels!

Traditionally you should re-antifoul every year, however, some people tend to do this every other year as a financial compromise. If a boat is left in the water too long mussels and algae build up uncontrollably, damaging the boat structure and making the boat less efficient to run. The wildlife tends to become established when you are not using the boat. Initially as you run the boat the mussels and weed will be swept away, but this thins the antifoul coat, hence the bottom should be washed & re-coated regularly. August Race Layers of hard calcium can build up too which Anti Scale can take a considerable amount of work and time to remove. It must be fully removed prior to antifouling as the new paint will not adhere. Remember, lack of use can contribute to unwanted build up - so keep sailing!

Choosing Your Antifouling

Having prepared the bottom, choosing the antifoul best suited for your boating waterway and pocket is the next step. Antifouls range from lighter, more economic paint, which is not as hard wearing or long lasting as some of the higher quality antifouling.

Painting & Repairs Painting the Hull and Topside

Hand painting a hull or superstructure can easily give you a similar finish to spraying. Rolling and laying off using Brilliant Gloss paint with a paint conditioner (CM041) is far cheaper than using two pack paint and with far fewer complications!

Preparation is everything, particularly if the boat has previously been painted. Sanding back to a firm foundation, de-greasing and cleaning with Pre-Clean Surface Cleaner (BP023) should provide a suitably keyed surface for the application of two coats of Primer Undercoat and two/three coats of Brilliant Gloss; sanding and cleaning between coats as required.

Deck Painting

Originally Freeman Cruiser decks had a non-slip finish which was achieved by mixing granite grit under the gelcoat finish, this however wears flat over the years. It is not practical to re-surface the deck so it is generally covered with deck coating which comes with anti-slip granules pre-mixed in the paint.

For the Classic Range Freemans white is traditional, but grey or blue is a popular alternative. The Freeman Stone Deck Paint, for the ‘New Style’ range, is still manufactured especially for us. The first priority of deck painting is to prepare the deck surface. Sanding, if required, and de-greasing using Pre-Clean (BP023).

Masking up the area, applying primer when required and painting; ensuring the paint is stippled into the deck. Usually two coats are best.

Gelcoat & Fibreglass Repairs

Gelcoat can usually be repaired if you have a scratch, crack, chip or small hole. For tips on gelcoat repair take a look at our Projects Mini Guide. Larger repairs may need a conversation as fibreglass repairs require more work to build the strength back into the boat with fibre matting & epoxy resin. Gelcoat fillers are a very handy product for those corner chips & bow knocks - various colours are available. Glass fibre fillers are useful for light fibreglass repairs and Fibreglass kits, epoxy resin & fibre matting are used for larger projects and are stocked too.

Boat Electrics Power Management & Batteries

Battery power is a problem on any boat as we are generally taking out more energy than we are putting in! Therefore the first priority is to try and balance your output with your input.

Marine Dual Purposed Sealed Batteries

Checking your wiring and connections will ensure you are making the most of your engine charging system i.e. that the maximum power generated from the engine is getting to the battery. Additional batteries will give you a larger ‘tank’ of electricity but this is only advantageous if you are able to keep them topped up.

An engine start draws a large amount of power in one go and a typical petrol engine start battery would 85Ah BB033A be around 80-90Ah whereas a 105Ah+ is usually 110Ah BB033B adequate for diesel start (although larger capacity & Numax CXV Marine Dual 120Ah BB033C speciality batteries are available). Purposed Sealed Batteries Most modern marine batteries are typically dual purpose, meaning they can 80Ah BB035B be used in either the engine start system or the domestic system. 105Ah BB035D Dual purpose batteries can also be used for average outboard engine starting.

Battery Isolators & Split Diodes Battery management is an important consideration on board. A basic battery switching system will enable some manual control (see Battery Switches on the next page). A Split Charge Diode or Battery Isolator will automatically evenly regulate and split alternator output power between batteries for re-charging.

Caution: Water and power do not mix so all work should be carried out by a competent person.

A Shore Power system allows you to charge the batteries and even run the on board systems whilst you are at the marina, or not even on board practical if your regular mooring has access to a 230v mains power supply. An input socket is connected to the fused control board with integral RCD and is then subdivided into one or more circuits. This can then run conventional mains power sockets, a battery charger, fridge, a hot water immersion heater, on board background heaters or media systems. Do remember that a normal boat supply will be limited to 1 or 2 kilowatt, you are not going to achieve all the comforts of home at one time!

Water Systems

Hot & Cold Fresh Water

Most boats have a fresh water system on board. This can be as simple as a water tank with a hand pump tap (many earlier Freemans had this as standard), to a full hot and cold water system which utilises the heat of the engine cooling water to warm fresh water when both are passed through a calorifier (heat exchanger).

It is usually quite simple to retrofit a hot water system and you may even be able to utilise some of your existing system parts to save on installation costs. Hot and cold taps or mixer tap option

Hot Water Calorifiers

Assuming you are following the layout above (there are other methods) the heart of the operation is the calorifier, it is the source of your hot water. The calorifier is a tank through which your heated engine water circulates, transferring heat and producing hot water for your fresh water system.

There are various calorifiers available, including ready-togo calorifiers with all the essential fittings such as WA041, WA042 & WA040 which are probably the simplest ones to fit on a new installation on Freeman 22’s through to Freeman 28’s as they fit on board comfortably whilst producing adequate amounts of hot water. We also have original replacement Freeman calorifiers for larger capacity systems. Most calorifiers also come with a mains electric immersion heater element which will heat water when plugged into your shore power system. Calorifier

Water Systems Hot, Cold & Mixer Taps

The taps are the second consideration as these affect the choice of water pump. Some taps have micro switches installed in them which switch the pump on and off as you open or close the tap. Others rely on the pressure in the system dropping, when a tap is open, activating the pressure switch in the pump.

Not surprisingly, as with everything in life, there is a choice! - There are various styles of single hot and cold taps, but you might find a mixer tap more convenient. Most faucets can swivel, so they can be moved out of the way as the sink top is raised or lowered.

Small Fresh Water Pumps

For smaller boat water systems electrically operated taps with a smaller inline pump are a popular choice. These are simply switched on and off when required by a switch or microswitch on the tap.

Larger Fresh Water Pumps

For bigger (pressurised) systems, larger, self-priming pumps which vary in power & pressure, are more suitable. These are switched on when the pressure in the line drops as you open the tap.

Water Systems Engine Installation Connections

Various connections will be required when fitting the system, these are largely standard, however pipe lengths will need to be measured depending on the routes chosen.

The inlet & outlet engine pipes from the calorifier carry the now hot, engine cooling water that heats the fresh water up through the heat exchange process within the calorifier. These pipes will need to be connected to the engine (see manufacturers instructions). They are normally arranged in such a way that the hottest water is harnessed from the outlet of the thermostat and then fed back in on the cold side of the internal water pump, (if the engine has one (indirect system)), or towards the exhaust outlet if it is a direct cooled system.

Some direct cooled engines do not have thermostats. This maybe worth adding to increase the temperature of the water available to the calorifier in order to heat your fresh water more successfully, but this should only be done if there is a bypass relief valve (which can be added to most engines).

WaterMota Hot Water Engine Relief Valve Kit Pre-Crossflow W3201 Crossflow W3200

Accumulator & Expansion Tanks

Accumulator tanks can be installed into pressurised water systems to smooth the flow of water from your taps and help reduce wear on your water pump. The tank should sit just after the water pump and holds a reservoir of water, that acts like a ‘buffer’, to ease the strain on the water pump - effectively helping prime the system ready for use.

Accumulator tanks can also be installed as hot water expansion tanks. When fitted after a non-return valve and before the calorifier on the fresh water calorifier inlet, the accumulator (known as an expansion tank in this situation) stores the extra hot water that is created when the water expands as it heats up in the calorifier. In effect, you are storing additional hot water rather than it leaking back into the cold supply.

Fresh Water Treatment, Filters, Purification & Containers If you plan on drinking from your on board cold water tank it is usually a good idea to have an inline filter, and/or, adding purification to drinking water when you refill. Water on board can sit for a while during the season, sweating in the tank with possible bacterial growth. Modern water purifiers are generally chlorine free, tasteless and odour free and sterilise water effectively making it safer to drink.

Boat Heating Diesel or Gas Central Heating?

A heating system in a boat not only increases your comfort on summer evenings but also effectively extends your boating season. There is nothing more exhilarating than cruising along the river admiring the frosty banks and viewing the wildlife on a winters day in the warmth of your boat! All of this can be achieved by adding a heating source into the cabin and cockpit. Heaters are fully controllable on a thermostat and powerful enough to make a difference. Unfortunately there are limited methods available to us, as catalytic heaters and portable appliances are not recommended. Note that lighting the gas oven or burners as heating is also not recommended, as dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can build up.

On a practical note, we are faced with diesel or gas powered heating. The two well known makes of diesel heaters are Eberspacher and Webasto, both of which we can offer, and if you have a diesel engine these should be considered as the fuel supply is simple; although they do need to be started very regularly, even in the summer months, as most problems occur due to under use. People have often been cautious of gas, particularly on a boat or caravan. Whilst we should not be complacent with any of the fuels, the relatively new regulations regarding gas mean that manufacturers have brought out good balanced flue (self contained) heating systems. These are self contained within their own compartment, sucking fresh air in and exhausting fumes directly outside the boat and therefore are as safe as any other heat source.

Gas heaters have the advantage of relatively easy installation. Particularly on petrol engine boats where there is no diesel supply and you already have a gas system. If you were to fit a diesel powered heater on a petrol engine vessel you would have to build an expensive fuel tank and supply system to meet the current regulations. A gas heating system is also very economic to run. Often overlooked, the 12/24v draw on a gas heater is usually lower than with a diesel heater, and, with limited battery power available on a boat this is very important.

Toilet Systems Selecting the right toilet

There are two popular types of toilet system that can be fitted to your boat (others do exist), a simple chemical toilet or a holding tank pump out toilet system.

Porta Potti Chemical Boat Toilets

Porta Potti’s are a two part ‘cassette’ style toilets featuring a holding tank, a flush water reservoir and toilet seat and lid. The toilet compartments split apart from each other so that you can empty the waste tank more conveniently and each toilet comes with an easy pour spout for hassle free disposal. Each toilet design has different dimensions, features and tank capacities so it is worth considering your options for the most practical choice for the space available on board. The Qube 365 has a large holding tank so is most popular and the 345 is that bit smaller, useful for Freeman 22’s where space is an important factor. Most Popular

Pump Out Boat Toilets

Pump out toilets are a more luxurious convenience. Common pump out toilet system consists of a toilet (manual or electric), a holding tank, toilet odour filter, vented loop, waste & rinse fillers, a tank level indicator and toilet sanitation hose. Firstly, select a toilet that is suitable for the space you have on board.

Toilet Installation

Secondly you will have to consider where the holding tank will be situated. Commonly, on a Freeman, the effluent (Black Water) is pumped into a holding tank which is situated under the starboard forward berth which helps keep the toilet system contained towards the front. Sometimes the tank can be situated under the cockpit floor, however this means running the pipe for a long distance behind the galley. The fresh rinse water is supplied via the ‘toilet seacock’, which was generally factory fitted on a Freeman and is usually located under the forward ‘V’ berth or in the bilge under the cabin floor, depending on the model. If this was not pre-installed they can easily be fitted - the boat does however have to be out of the water. Pump out & toilet rinse deck fittings will also be necessary for emptying the tank. If you are considering a pump out system it is essential to ensure that there is a sufficient number of pump out facilities on your waterway so that you don’t get caught short!

Stainless steel tanks are made to order and are designed to fit in the front V-Berth. Plastic tanks are also available

if required.

The Engine Room WaterMota Petrol Engines - Crossflow or Pre-Crosflow?

Most Freeman Cruisers fitted with a petrol engine had the WaterMota Crossflow or Pre-Crossflow engine installed as standard. The terms relate to where the carburettor lies and where the engine gases flow. A Pre-Crossflow has the carburettor sitting on top of the exhaust manifold whereas the Crossflow has the carburettor on the opposite side to the exhaust manifold. The gases flow across the head hence the term Crossflow. The Crossflow was, at the time, the next generation engine and during the crossover to this newer design some of the older parts were fitted to the newer engines (oil pumps & filters etc.) as Mr Freeman liked to use up all of his parts! So, it is not uncommon to find Pre-Crossflow/Crossflow hybrids - perfectly normal but worth knowing before ordering spares and something for us to add to your record for future orders. Many of the service parts are different for the WaterMota WaterMota Crossflow & Pre-Crossflow engines so do check! Pre-Crossflow Engine Crossflow Engine Service Manual What’s in a name? Service Manual BK001 BK002 These very popular WaterMota petrol engines carry the well known Sea Wolf and Sea Tiger names. The Sea Wolf name is used on the 997 PreCrossflow and the 1100 Crossflow engines while the Sea Tiger name is used Basic Petrol Engine on the 1500 Pre-Crossflow and 1600 Crossflow engines respectively. Service I am a Classic engine so please look after me!

Although originally designed for cars, the WaterMota marinised engines have generally not completed anywhere near the miles expected of them when they were installed into a car of the time. Often also running a lot slower and cooler than the car installation therefore experiencing less wear and tear - which is great news! It is however now very important to regularly service your engine, particularly a basic annual service as a bare minimum - this should prolong it’s life span considerably and is more cost effective than having to buy a new engine!

WaterMota Petrol Engines

While a general petrol engine service would usually include an oil and oil filter change, it may also require new spark plugs together with the high wear elements in the distributor; the contact set, rotor arm & condenser. Check the alternator belt for tightness and wear and change the water pump impeller. Check the batteries, fuel & water pipes and joints for signs of wear or seepage. You may also wish to clean the fuel filter and change the element (if fitted), clean the carburettor and the air filter. Adjusting the tappets and timing is also a good idea as this helps the smooth running of the engine.

Most diesel engines have a fuel filter similar to this where the centre part should be regularly replaced.

Diesel Engine Service & Spares

A basic diesel engine service might include an oil and filter change, fuel filter change, cleaning the air filter and changing the water pump impeller, and, as with the petrol engine service, checking all other ancillary items. Occasionally the fuel injection pump and injectors should be serviced too. Diesel Engine Service Parts available for:

An annual engine oil change is best achieved by sucking the oil from the sump using an oil sump pump. Oil residue in the bilge can be absorbed with a drip pad or small oil absorbers and bilge cleaner.

The Engine Room Steering & Throttle Controls


Steering cables need to be monitored regularly, especially where they run around pulley wheels which should be greased (Freeman 22, 23 and 26). Occasionally this cable will need replacing. Freeman 24, 27 and 28 cables have, unfortunately, now changed in manufacturing style. It is usually necessary to change the cable and use our adapter if a major problem occurs - parts are available.

Marine Exhaust Hose

As the engines are water cooled, a rubber flexible exhaust hose connects the engine to the transom exhaust outlet allowing a mixture of cooling water and exhaust gasses to be dispersed overboard. This mixture deteriorates the hose internally in the same way as bilge water affects the outside. Regular visual inspection is essential - replace if required as you do not want potentially dangerous exhaust gasses in the boat.

Engine Water Cooling Pumps

A full range of Jabsco and Johnson pumps and spares are available for most engines. Both pump manufacturers can be found on Freemans with Jabsco the most common. Pump numbers can be found on the face plate of your pump which is a useful confirmation when ordering parts. Carry a spare Impeller!

As impellers go around continuously at half the speed of the engine they can disintegrate at any time, particularly if they run dry; for example if the sea cock becomes blocked or restricted. Replacing an impeller is a job that can easily be undertaken by yourself or another boat owner and carrying a spare could save you calling out an engineer on a Sunday afternoon!

Water in the Oil?

Water pumps (cam driven) are the biggest source of water getting into your oil sump, do not automatically assume the head gasket has blown if this occurs. You generally need to change the pump seals and O ring which come in the service kit or sold separately.

New Engine Water Pumps

Eventually after several service changes the water pump bodies and/or shafts become worn and a new pump is required. Replacement pumps are stocked, please be sure to give us as much information regarding the pump and engine as possible so that we can provide the correct replacement.

Stern Log Hoses & Gland Packing

Replacing Gland Packing, the water seal in the stern gland, is one of the most common jobs to be undertaken. Please refer to the Freeman Owners Handbook (BK008) for more details.

Log hoses age, particularly when covered in bilge water, and should be changed when they become too soft or start showing signs of deterioration - this has to be done out of the water.

J-Type Gearbox

Parts and servicing are available at Sheridan Marine and many problems can be discussed on the helpline - it is helpful if you have a copy of the J-Type Handbook (BK003) to hand to cross reference the same schematic.

The only regular maintenance on a J-Type gearbox is to check the oil level and change the oil using engine oil, NEVER EP90. Occasionally the clutch plates will need adjusting as over the years they wear slowly and the reverse band may need tightening. The most common service parts are the bell housing seal (N7010), rear seal (Direct Drive L220, Reduction L601) and top gasket (L090). When you can no longer successfully adjust the clutch plates a new set of clutch plates and a split cone will be required.

The Engine Room Underwater Gear

When the boat is out of the water for its winter lay up it is a good opportunity to check its underwater gear. If replacements are required, refer to the Freeman Owners Handbook or call the Freeman Owners Helpline.


Look at the propeller nut and split pin for damage or corrosion and tightness.

Small chips and nicks on the propeller can easily be filed and cleaned. Anything worse than this and the propeller should be removed and sent to us for refurbishing & reFreeman Castle Freeman balancing; they can return looking like new! 1” - 1 1/4” Nut Normally a new propeller is only required if Shaft Split 1” SS018A the old one is seriously damaged, particularly Pin 1 1/4” SS018B SS019A 1 3/4” SS018C at the boss (the centre point where the blades meet), or electrolysis has set in. Look for signs of ‘pinkness’ and tap the propeller blade to see if it has an unfortunate dull thud or a healthy ‘ring’. We generally hold most standard Freeman propellers in stock.

Propeller Shafts


Check that the propeller shaft is running true. A simple visual check by placing a sharp point (nail, pen point, etc.) on the centre of the shaft and revolving the propeller by hand (with the engine disabled to avoid any chance of starting!) should highlight any bad oscillation.

Rudder stocks can split at the fork where the blade joins and should be examined. Sometimes the rivets loosen and the blades need to be tightened. The Gaco seal lies at the top of the rudder shaft.

Cutlass Bearings & ‘P’ Brackets

Check for excessive movement on the cutlass bearing. On average this needs to be changed every 10 years or so. The rubber wears allowing excessive movement of the shaft, which could eventually cause expensive damage to the shaft and gearbox.

Water Inlet Sea Cocks

Sea Cock filters should be cleaned regularly. Sea Cock Caps, if domed, should be replaced (it should have a flat top) & Cork Washers should be replaced to create a water tight seal. Gate valves can stop working so check the condition and replace if you are concerned or it is faulty.

Anodes should also be monitored as their function is to wear away to protect the underwater fittings. Freemans were generally manufactured with all bronze underwater fittings, this helps to limit electrolysis and corrosion. It is when you mix the metals, for example when introducing stainless steel or aluminium that problems are greatly accelerated. There are a number of different types and shapes of anodes. Anodes need to be exchanged regularly and common replacements are listed here. Simple shaft and rudder anodes are very easy to fit and can give peace of mind to those boats not kept in a seriously corrosive area.

The Engine Room The Bilge & Bilge Blower Kit

A bilge blower is a useful safety device that sits neatly below deck and vents out engine fumes that can build up beneath your feet. The easiest way to try and prevent the build up of these fumes is to install a bilge blower with adequate vent hose and an outlet which will allow the fumes to escape from your boat.

The bilge blower is normally fitted high up in the bilge so that it is clear of any water or oil. The ducting can then be run to the engine and to the vent outlet. Bilge blowers can also be used to draw fresh air in, usually by inverting the motor. Note: All bilge blowers should be ignition protected. The external cowl vent should also be positioned in the most suitable location, away from gas/fuel vents or heating inductions for example. It is important to keep to the Boat Safety Scheme guidelines during installation. The bilge blower wiring should also be well clear of the bilge water level and fuel lines. It should be appropriately insulated, switched and fused.

Bilge Cleaning & Painting

What a difference a clean bilge makes. It looks smart, makes the boat look cared for and helps to identify early symptoms of leaks, etc.. Most Freeman Cruisers came with mid grey bilge paint with white used in other areas. It is a very robust paint that can be easily applied. The best way to clean the bilge before painting is with a proprietary bilge cleaner to remove grease, oil & sludge, de-greasing as far as practical. The paint is specially designed for this purpose and will cover greasy parts better than other paints!

Boat Safety Equipment The Boat Safety Scheme, are you compliant?

The Boat Safety Scheme was set up to provide the basis of what is deemed to be the safest procedures, methods & installations on board. Popular items required to complete the adjustment of original Freeman Cruisers to comply with the BSS are listed below. You should not need to change any of the major features of a Freeman to comply and the help line is available for members to discuss BSS report findings and resolutions. Unfortunately, every Freeman Cruiser was individually made and has subsequently been individually maintained, & ‘modernised’, so it will have to be inspected on its own merit by a BSS examiner.

Fuel Hose

The fuel filler hoses generally need to be changed. We have suitable hoses in most imperial sizes to fit Freemans. When changing a hose do check both ends, they are not always equal. 2 1/4” both ends is the most popular, however some are 2 1/4” at the tank end and 2” at the filler end. Larger sizes are also available.

Petrol fuel tanks need to be top fed. We offer a modification service which blanks off the bottom feed and converts the supply to top feed, a bonding lug is added and the tank is pressure tested and certificated. Fuel Tank The bonding wire earth straps generally need to be Bonding upgraded, providing a connection between the fuel filler, Wire tank and a suitable earthing point, usually the rudder stock. TA078

Fuel Pipe & Vent Hose

Flexible fuel pipes generally have to be changed to the ISO7840 standard, or an accepted equivalent. The end fittings are the problem, being imperial sizes and often of a different size either end. Standard fuel pipes with straight even ends usually come in 1/4”, 5/16” & 3/8” in various lengths. We also supply WaterMota/Freeman pipes which have different sizes on each end. Vent hoses were normally provided on a Freeman but they now need to be as high as the filler. The most practical method may be to ‘goose neck’ a hose by connecting a new, longer hose to the existing fittings and supporting it correctly.

Gas Systems

Freeman gas systems were originally fitted to the standards of the time on which the current rules are based. So assuming there is no deterioration or modifications it is generally a case of changing the flexible hose, regulator & providing a test point (now allowed in the gas locker) and then testing the system. Bubble testers are also acceptable but can only be successfully fitted in limited situations. They are more expensive than a test point but do allow the owner to carry out basic leak tests frequently. Often the original cookers are past their ‘sell-by-date’. As most parts are no longer available so a new cooker with flame failure device may have to be installed. Please note that all gas work should be undertaken by a gas competent person.

Ventilation & Carbon Monoxide Alarm

Whilst most Freeman Cruisers met the ventilation requirements of the day, usually with a mushroom vent in the roof, this almost certainly needs increasing. The amount of ventilation required is directly related to the kilowatt per hour of the appliances, the number of berths on the boat and whether appliances are of a balanced flue type. Therefore each boat needs it’s own calculation. As a very general rule of thumb, the average Freeman requires two newer style mushroom vents (DF249A), and suitable lower vents. The lower vents should be installed lower than the lowest burner. On many Freeman Cruisers they can be fitted into the lower part of the cabin door (taking into account any canopy / cockpit restriction to the fresh air supply).

Boats where you step down into the cabin (i.e. Freeman 27, 32, 33) may need to duct in fresh air, possibly from the ‘Freeman’ side air vents, into the cabin space. Do remember aft cabins, even without appliances installed, should have suitable ventilation related to the number of berths. Carbon monoxide alarms are now compulsory for the BSS as well.

Batteries should be installed, preferably in an acid proof container, such as a ready made battery box. Battery boxes come with a lid to cover the terminals, as required by the BSS, and can be strapped down to prevent movement too. Whilst battery boxes are ventilated you may need to add a suitable grid to the boats battery enclosure to allow any hydrogen to escape. As hydrogen rises, grids should usually be at the top of the enclosure to aid the gases escape.

Each battery should, ideally, have an isolating switch of a suitable amperage for the potential maximum draw. Many boats have the simple ‘red key’ switch (EL010). Freeman 27’s and 33’s were generally supplied with the metal butterfly switch (EL014). Many owners like to install a rotary switch with multiple positions, this allows easier control of your battery system for both charging and usage. It is common to see overloaded fuse boxes as gadgets are added. Often it is necessary to provide a new fuse box to allow one circuit to each fuse. Cables need to be suitable for their demand, secured & clipped, away from fuel & gas lines. Occasionally on the very early F22 Mk1’s we still find cloth covered wiring which should be replaced.

Fire Extinguishers

These need replacing or servicing. They need to be of the designated size, relevant to the length of the boat and suitable for both A and B fires to the prescribed definition of the BSS. They also need to be within their expiry date. Smoke detectors are recommended but not currently compulsory.

Fire Blankets A fire blanket to BSEN1869 is also required if there are cooking facilities aboard. This should not be positioned directly over the cooker as it would be difficult to get to in the event of a cooker fire.

Boat Safety Equipment The RYA (Royal Yachting Association) and local authorities give advice and indeed run courses regarding safety procedures. Below are a few ideas you might find useful related to safety equipment. Firstly, do have a safety procedure on the boat that all the crew and friends are aware of and do also have trial drills. Quick action can turn a potentially serious situation into a controlled ‘memorable’ experience! Why not try reclaiming a fender or bottle from the water? It is harder than you think but it gives you good experience with boat handling and understanding how difficult it is to retrieve someone from the water.

Life Jackets & Buoyancy Aids

Automatic life jackets are the most popular. These are now generally slim-line, unobtrusive jackets worn over the top of clothing which automatically inflate when submerged in water. Manual life jackets, requiring you to pull a tab to inflate, are also available. Foam-filled, positively buoyant, buoyancy aids/life jackets can be ideal for children who want to play in the water without setting off the automatic inflation function.
