Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Had to open up one of the shed doors to get the trailer in and offload the engine. This is what I found!



I have to admit. It is impressive when you get to stand back and see the whole thing!

Few more mental wanderings on today's web log update: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2016/09/the-lil-engine.html

Carry on....

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

So my plan to use a home made boom to lift the engine into the boat doesn't seem to be workable.



I'll tinker with the skeg etc. next week but that's gonna be it for the season. See you all in the spring!

Last Web log update for 2016: https://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2016/10/boom-fail.html

Cheers!

My buddy Matt in Australia asked me for an overview pic of the boat.

It really is nice to step back and take it all in. You've been doing a fine job in getting her together.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

So technically it's 'Spring' here. Supposed to hit 10C or for you south of the fence that's 50F. Lots of rain in the forecast.

Finished my latest assignment with the Gubment on Friday. Glad that's over. Time to turn my attention to the boat. First up will likely be finishing the rudder so I can get that and the drive train installed. The engine still has to be serviced. I dunno but nobody seems to want to return my calls. Fack! Is my money not good 'nuff for them?

Anyhow. I did pick up two Igloo 150 qt coolers for $77 Cdn Pesos each! Score! I'm thinking these could go under benches in the cockpit or main salon for cold & dry storage or whatever use they're required for. Just too good a deal to let slide by.



Still sore as hell. First MRI was a flop. I didn't fit in the machine. Too wide in the shoulders and they wanted me to put my arms above my head and with two blown out rotator cuffs that wasn't going to happen. They were going to image my lower spine so why they couldn't stick me in feet first I have no idea. Off to a bigger machine next Saturday. I do have a fear of being trapped in small spaces so a sedative is likely in order!

That's all the news. Standby....

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

I'm back. Well sorta. Still having issues with my back and leg that keeps me out of the boat shed most days. Updated our web log with a few details on what's been happening.

M/V She:Kon: A Minute or Two

Bought a bunch of other doo dads the last month or so, just thru-hulls, drains, bilge pumps etc. Hopefully I'll get to install them this year.

Standby....

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

I emphasize!

I've been flat on my back since April 9 with a major painful sciatic left nerve. Got a couple steroid injections today. Still some minor pain 8 hours later but need to give it a couple more days. The worse two weeks of my life! Arthritis.

Hope you're on your way to better health. Most of the time it gets better but eventually prepare for the worse. Life's like going to sea. Every trip is a new experience, weather, tides, temperatures, services and maintenance ALL change.

Hangs in there. The golden years are still full of wisdom.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

delmarrey,

I empathize. A solution that has really helped me is fresh ginger root infusion.
Take fresh ginger root,cut off the groty parts.Forget about cutting off outer skin,then run through grader on food processor.1/3-1/2 cup of this with liter of water-bring temp up to just under boiling-let sit 5 mins.Stir so floating mash releases bubbles and starts to settle out.You can scale this to prepare more at one time.I make this in batches of 2-3 gallons per 10 days or so in advance.
The color should be bronzy-brassy.Drink hot,warm or,cold during day. Adding SUGAR defeats the benefits. Take alook at processed foods and sugars in your diet.

This is a strong Anti-Inflammatory.Also,it's great for GI tract!More ginger to same water amount the more potent,though stronger taste.

No more nasty steroids for 2 years now !


All the Best

Arthur, Don't want to hijack knottys thread but I'll give the ginger a try.

GORDMAY, Me too. Sorry your getting it too! I'm starting a diet of Garapentin 300mg. We'll see how that goes. I'm about 50% of yesterday's pain but we'll see.

Knotty, pay attention you could be infor this painful 💩 too!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

I'm back (again). Well sorta. Still nowhere near 100%. Have an appt with the neurosurgeon on the 21 st. to see if there's anything that can be done. I did manage to get out into the boat shed today. Mostly puttering and cleaning up the mess. If I pace myself (snail's pace) I can keep going for awhile. Tomorrow I'm going to try to get my 6" x 6" i-Beam up 10' in the air. 8O This will be the gantry crane that'll lift the engine into the boat on chain falls.

Standby for the calamity that will undoubtedly ensue!

Boy, this getting old **** really suks!

Carry on!
