Well..just about the time I was going to buy bolts for the chain plates on Idora (104 in all) reality intruded. As she sat nonmobile in her slip the aging exhaust
system rotted out. This was discovered during a periodic engine
run. Not being one to put up with such events
, I suited up and sailed her up to PT. A bit cool on deck
but I had the whole Sound to myself. Up she went onto the hard for bottom paint
, zincs and a cool new double water lift exhaust
. The new system should make for a cooler and more quiet engine
space. Hopefully done in 10 days or less.
The chain plate
bolts will have to wait till I get her home.
