Well the migration south is well under way but our local rigger come mast
monkey finally turned up yesterday and replaced the windvane
, heused the windlass
for a fast ride up top and put a dab of loctite on the vane socket to help hold it in place more securely. So finally a weekend when we managed 3 steps forward and only one back instead of weeks of making two forward and three back. Just need the engine
man to do his bit this morning and we can really break out the smiles! ( engine
runs lumpy after being left unused for a week or two, like it has somehow getting air in the fuel
lines maybe on one cylinder?) Otherwise we upgraded the davit lift
tackles from 4:1 to 6:1 yesterday and fitted a new flat screen
TV/DVD player combo on a swing out mount. Something of a milestone for me this weekend, since I did those jobs myself, with just a little wifely assistance,
instead of paying yet another local just in case my residually clumsy stroke hand might cause me to drop the bits mid job or I lose balance hanging davit tackles and get dunked.
