Zee,

Ditto what IdoraKeeper said. Please let us help lower your stress level. This job could go OK in the water, but it could also get out of hand in a hurry.

Bob

yipes. will trade passages and legs of trip for this help0--i have o repay somehow..i have difficulty receiving/taking--am a total giver...how i go tinto this situation in first place, i believe-- no good deed ,yada yada..
i will also trade medical knowledge and whatever else i can to help all you guys and ladies--appreciation is rampant..... still scared... the bolts on the flange convinced me , as one of th e biggest supporters of me doing this in water told me .... mine are probably done--i have a powdered one already. if this comes to over my budget is what scares me most. i am working on that aspect of it all.....

Good zeezee! Makes total sense! Glad we will be able to help!

When I looked at those pictures all I could think of was "rotten teeth", and the epic story developing online of how to fix it wreaked totally of a ClusterF**K in the makin'.

let us know the name and contact info for the repair facility, and ask them if it is okay if olks pay 'some' of the bill over the phone or online?

Keep us posted as to what they do, and how they do it, and whether or not you can help and get all elbows into it at all....I would want to do it to learn more and to keep costs down.

see if there is anything else below that needs addressing while the boat is hoisted..

and believe when I say there are others out here that are like you and want to help for whatever reasons they have, maybe they were helped before and this is their way of paying back...or ????

I got a benjamin with your boats name on it, and I willbe glad to forward it to you or the service facility... just let me know...

Hi Zee I am relived that you are taking the boat out of the water to do this. You might want to start cleaning and soaking all of the threaded bits so that they will be easier to take off.

i will also be able to better see what i am stuck with after cleaning there also....is a relief and a fear to be at the mercy of a yard when there are so many unknowns.....
but i am on my way to fixing her finally-- this has been my greatest fear with this boat....

cool email sent to Kate...I will let you know how I fared and when to expect some credit towards your repair...

good luck, and I would also suggest getting your paypal account back up and running so you can help others if you get that chance...???
