Re: Being pulled in many directions...

Well, Monday is starting and to update the status of the 'to do' list, here I am:

Great stuff guys. I am off work for four days and made a list(s). Going to see if I can hold to it.

Today, Friday, May 17: 1) Finish glassing in sea cock
2) Install expansion tank and rebuilt water pump">raw water pump
3) Unclog sink drain

1) Almost finished glassing the sea-cock.
2) They are dry fitted, gasket in a tube was dried out.
3) Drain unclogged. Made a command decision. No drinking out of fitted tanks.

Saturday, May 18 1) Polish fuel with home-built polisher.
2) tidy up

1) Polished fuel, but ran out of filter elements half way through.
2) Tidied up. Found cool stuff. Should tidy up more often.

Sunday, May 19 1) Remove prop, disconnect shaft from transmission
in preparation to changing cutlass bearing (shudder).
2) Measure old bearing after removal (As if I'll get it out
that quickly).

1) Removed prop nuts and prop. Thats it. Nut are toast and threads are damaged but that is nothing I can't fix.

2) Yeah, right.

So the lists were not completed, but I did stick to them. Hoorah for me.

Our Coronado 25, Not named yet!

YIKES! If it is that bad, you may want to consider pumping the fuel out of the tank, getting rid of it, cleaning the tank as best you can and putting new fuel back in.



You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
