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 red and white 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 or black 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 features a red nylon safety rope threaded around the lifering.

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.”

Spring Loaded Boat Hook Holder

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.

Re-chroming 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!

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 (DF294AA) can be added as a finishing touch inside. A fly screen can stop flying 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 (shown first below) fulfils most Freemans requirements whereas DF256C is the waterproof equivalent.

Freeman Canopies For many of the Freeman range we have very economical, ready made canopies available. Made from PVC material; blue for the Classic range and stone (cream) for the ‘New Style’ range boats. Canvas is a popular alternative. Canopies can be made to order in a choice of colours and materials with the option of additional zips, windows, internal/external window blinds or other features. 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.

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

The Freeman hardtop kit brings more usable space on board and has the effect of enlarging your living area. 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. F22 Mk1 F22 Mk2 F23 F26

Canopies & Covers High Rail Hoods & Slide Kits High rail hoods are another option which allows 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!

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 cover. • Provides protection from the elements 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

Window WindowsRefurbishment and Window Rubbers 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 all 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. A fitting guide is supplied with these window kits.

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 reinstall 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 FW003C

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

WindowsRefurbishment Window and Window Rubbers 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.

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.

Rubbing Strakes Deck Equipment Windows and Window Rubbers 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’ cruisers have a larger aluminium section and corresponding rubber. The wood comes in 12ft sections 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.

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. Please contact Freeman Lower Rubbing us for current repair section off cuts. Strake Mahogany Length WP033 ‘D’ Section Strakes ‘D’ Section is sometimes used to cap the wood instead of the aluminium and 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.

Boarding Rubbing Strakes Ladders & Bathing Platforms Deck Equipment Windows and Window Rubbers 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 re-board 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.

Bathing Platforms

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.

DavitsEquipment Rubbing & Strakes Outboard Brackets Deck Windows and Window Rubbers 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 Freeman 26, 30 & 32 Davits the boat and the water when raised; an HT012 unstable situation can arise.

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. The davits for the ‘New Range’ boats fit vertically on the transom & can be recessed to fit snugly around the distinctive shape of the hull (see right on a Freeman 27). 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 maybe 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.

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 & 26kg respectively and 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

Larger, more powerful engines are also available to order with various options that are worth discussing prior to purchase, many of which feature advanced technology such as one hand, multifunctional tiller control, electric trim tilting, turn key starting, jet powered outboards and even GPS controlled systems which allow for controlled, programmed routes to be followed! Of course, if you require your boat to be pulled out of the water to fit the large engines we can accommodate this at the boatyard and our outboard specialists will fit the engine ready for us to relaunch your boat in our slipway - please telephone to arrange this service.

Dinghy Equipment Electric Outboard 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 Batteries on See also... may need to remove this as well as the outboard! Page 78 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 Smart Battery Charger boat and shore side charging centres is easier and seven stage charging for reduces the risk of acid battery spills.

British Seagull Outboards TM

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, they tend to be in keeping with their classic craft, and more often than not they are found in the boats bilge, 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.

Comfort Board Living & On Dining On Board Cockpit Tables & Table Pedestals Cockpit tables are a handy extra; a comfortable refinement for entertaining and relaxing.

Table pedestals are available in varying heights; on to which the unique, hand made in England, Mahogany Freeman Tables, or the plastic coated mass produced tables can be mounted. Tables are usually mounted with a Table Top Support which slots onto a table pedestal, which in turn slots into a Table Pedestal Base.

Living Comfort Fridges, OnCool-boxes On Board Board & Cookers 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 the beer and milk but not preserve the 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 maybe working over-time but you may not feel like cruising to recharge the batteries!

Freeman Mahogany Fridge Box

The Freeman Mahogany Fridge Box is handmade in England and designed to neatly house the ‘standard’ Freeman fridge (RF006) 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 a premium. Complete with a fully varnished mahogany exterior and painted finish inside. 600mm(H) x 495(W) x 560(D)


It is easily mountable to most flat surfaces such as your cockpit floor and is often fitted as a replacement for many helm seat pedestals, allowing you to utilise the space often wasted under the helm seat.

This fridge box features an attractive overhanging edge around the top surface and ventilation slots at the back to help the fridge run as economically as possible.

Freeman Mahogany Compact Fridge Box

570mm(H) x 510(W) x 440(D)


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 utilise the space on board.

Where to install the Freeman Fridge Box We find that most Freeman Fridge Box installations utilise the space in the cockpit by replacing the helm seat and pedestal setup. By installing the Fridge Box here you are able to attach a helm seat to the top of the Fridge Box providing a sturdy seating position for the captain, whilst positioning the fridge (housed inside the box) as close as possible to the batteries (most commonly found underneath the helm position).

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.

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. Original Freeman Helmsman Seat on a Freeman 22/23

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.

Adjustable Seat Pedestals

Seat Swivels

Adjustable Seat Pedestals allow you to raise, lower, rotate and lock the seat position where necessary. These can be suitable for Freeman 22’s & 23’s with raised seating platforms in the cockpit where fixed pedestals can be that bit too high making your head constantly graze the canopy!

Living Seating Upholstery Fridges, Comfort OnCool-boxes On Board Board & Cookers 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 over 500 materials, designs & colours to choose from that, cannot all be shown, but feel free to come and visit our River Thames Shop to flick through the materials available. (Material choices can change without notice).

The Classic Look Choose from 16 styles in this range Crisp shades of Blue or Red suit the darker Freeman woodwork well and help emphasise the classic look. Fawn or Vanilla really open up the lighter Freeman woodwork & Caramel or Gold step back into the 70’s!

The Retro Collection Choose from 15 styles in this range 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.

Style Chosen. Create My 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. There are three options available as well as a full bespoke service by arrangement. All new cushion sets include the main cabin cushions and backrests made with 5” thick foam finished 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 brought in for recovering too).

As V-Berth infill cushions were an optional extra, a small addition is added when tailoring.

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!

Option 2 - Recovering your existing cushion foam - material tailored & fitted to your existing cushion foam. Take a note of 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 - 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.

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.

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.

Cockpit Floor & Deck Covering ‘New Style’ Freeman Cruisers used Fawn Diamond flooring in the cockpit area. The Grey Flat flooring is ideal for recovering Classic Style Freeman Cruiser cockpit floors.

Living Seating Upholstery Fridges, Comfort OnCool-boxes On Board Board & Cookers Cockpit Cushions and Covers

Freeman Cockpit Cushion sets are available for the Freeman Range and usually held in stock in the traditional Freeman blue, for the Classic Range, and Marble, for the ‘New Style’ range. Sets consist of the seat and the backrest and are finished in a fluted material with piped edging as per the original cockpit cushion sets. Covers are also available separately for your existing foam, new foam can be cut if this is all that needs replacing too & other colour options are also available to order.

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. Others 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.

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.

Woodwork Freeman 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 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 revarnish. Alternatively, fresh new boards can be cut and freshly varnished to replace the old ones. Boards are available in 5mm, 10mm or as a veneer on a thin gasket type material which can easily be stuck over damaged sections of woodwork.

Woodwork Preparation Woodwork 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!).

Thinners & Wood Sealers It is very important to use the correct Thinners when varnishing or painting - using anything less (such as Terps or white spirit from your local DIY store) 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 50/50 mix) so the thinned varnish is drawn into the wood for maximum protection. Wood Impreg is a pre-mixed 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!

Cockpit lighting is a simple yet effective way to brighten up the cockpit with low level lighting. Lights are easy to install with holes drilled into the various panels selected for the light fittings. The wires are threaded behind the panels and clipped up where practical and connected to a switch and an appropriate fuse. Ambience is the end result, as the halogen or LED lamp rays hit the varnished woodwork and create a warm interior and the low level lighting should not affect your view from the helm as you cruise in the twilight.

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. 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. Marine Dual Purposed Sealed Batteries 85Ah 110Ah 120Ah

BB033A BB033B BB033C

An engine start draws a large amount of power in one go and a typical petrol engine start battery would be around 85-90Ah whereas a 110Ah+ is usually adequate for diesel start (although larger capacity & speciality batteries are available).

Most modern marine batteries are typically dual purpose, meaning they can be used in either the engine start system or the domestic system.

Numax CXV Marine Dual Purposed Sealed Batteries

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.

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!

Boat Power Heating 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.

Water Power Heating 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. Possible layout of a basic hot water system fitted to a Freeman 23 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-to-go calorifiers with all the essential fittings such as WA042, WA042A & WA040 which are probably the simplest one 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

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. While 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 The water pump pressurises the system, drawing water from the water tank and forcing the water directly to the cold taps & through the calorifier to the hot taps. For smaller boat water systems, electrically operated taps with a smaller inline pump is a popular choice.

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. WaterMota Hot Some direct cooled engines do not have thermostats, this maybe worth Water Engine Relief adding to increase the temperature of the water available to the calorifier Valve Kit in order to heat your fresh water more successfully, but this should only be Pre-Crossflow W3201 done if there is a bypass relief valve (which can be added to most engines). 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 If you plan on drinking from your on board cold water tank it is usually a good idea to have an inline purification 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.

Toilet Power WaterSystems Heating Systems Selecting the right toilet There are two popular types of toilet system that can be fitted to your boat (others do exists), 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 toilet 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

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!

Oil Absorbers

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.

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 Service Manual What’s in a name? 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 on the 1500 Pre-Crossflow and 1600 Crossflow engines respectively. 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:

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, the head and rudder connector 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, 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.

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. 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.

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, de-greasing as far as practical. The paint is specially designed for this purpose and will cover greasy parts better than other paints! Take a look at the Projects & Solutions Mini Guide too!

Engine Tray For the BSS it is usually necessary to have an enclosed engine tray to contain dirty bilge water contaminated with oil & any engine residues. On most Freemans this can often be achieved by simply building a small dam behind the gearbox coupling. It usually requires a GRP kit (HT032) and a piece of ply wood. Bilge pumps should also be removed from the engine tray if effluent can be directly discharged overboard.

Engine The Engine Room Room Underwater Fittings 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 1” SS018A Shaft Split 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.

Shaft Knife 1” SS023A 1 1/4” SS023B 1 3/4” SS023C

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. It does not normally need changing unless water is permeating through. However, the rudder should 1” Shaft be greased regularly using SG010A the grease cap on top of 1 1/4” -1” Shaft the shaft.

Sacrificial Anodes

Vetus 3/4” Type 140 Water Strainer GV300

Vetus 1” Type 133 Water Strainer GV305B

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.

Engine Boat Safety Room Scheme 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 Wire upgraded, providing a connection between the fuel filler, TA078 tank and a suitable earthing point, usually the rudder stock.

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 maybe 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 only be undertaken by a gas competent person.

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 kilo watt 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.

Exterior Vents on Page 20 & Interior Vents on Page 69

Batteries 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.

Fenders Fixings & Fastenings Boat Safety Safety Gear 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.

Fixings && Painting Repairs - Fastenings Antifouling 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 maybe 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. Most popular

How often should I re-antifoul? 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. Layers of hard calcium can build up too which 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.

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.

Fixings &&Fastenings 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 (Owatrol Oil) is far cheaper than using two pack paint and with far fewer complications! As with deck painting, preparation is everything, particularly if the boat has previously been painted. Sanding back to a firm foundation, de-greasing and cleaning with Surface Cleaner 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 resurface the deck so it is generally covered with deck coating which comes with anti-slip granules pre-mixed in the paint. For the classic 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.

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.

FR007A & FR006A White Bow Fenders on a Freeman 23

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, and, stern corner fenders are a popular addition. Bow fenders protect the nose, particularly when mooring close to other vessels.

Fenders Fixings &Ropes Fastenings Mooring & Accessories 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 particular waterways requirements. You can either have pre-spliced & pre-cut mooring lines in a packet or rope cut by the metre from a reel.
