well it was a big couple of days but the new engines and sail drives are installed with just the electrical
lines to be run and connected to the new instrument panels
as well as the throttle and gear cables
. Sue has been an absolute trojan having cleaned both bilges and engine
rooms. It astounds me how they were allowed to get to such a state that it was like sloppy stinking mud. The bilge pump
filter was a disgrace. I don't know what some one was thinking but they had covered the filter with fly screen
which was totally blocked with gunk.
We have three new coats of antifoul on the boat and the props are already for new propped. We can't wait to start getting things back together, the boat looks like a bomb has hit it.
There have been a few visitor which have been a most welcome distraction. We were able to meet Steve and Nora off Zero Gravity, a fellow 410 owner who has there boat stored on the hard
here. Its great to meet fellow cruiser forum members and Lagoon
owners as well.
Hope to splash in the next couple of days and start our cruise
An exhausted Sue and Greg
