hellosailor, we were in the US at the time, getting ready to go cruising. That Mercury
warranty work held us in Rhode Island
until october. It was supposed to be done in July and they finished it in late september. But so far it's held up ok, thanks to the great repair work by a repair service
guy at Life Raft and Survival company out if Portsmouth RI. I would not reccomend the rest of the company for anything, but this guy did a great job. I pretty much delt with him directly 'cause he was the only guy doing something in that facility. And he did excellent work.
Meanwhile, in Nassau
in march I added another bead of 5200 along the joint between the hard transom and the inflatable
tubes. Just in case 'cause we were really using it all day long, every day. But the tubes are holding up great despite the heavy use since october. So thumbs up for a small (smallest) RIB
, made by mercury
season one of the tasks is to use my old mainsail
leftovers and make a UV cover for the dighy. I have a feeling that one more season of the tropical sun will deteriorate the condition of the tubes beyond repair.
