Oops. We sailed out Saturday, anchored overnight, and sailed home Sunday without breaking anything in the process.

Sorry about that, Chief. Won't happen again, I can assure you.

Good lord Chief! Were you on our boat this weekend? We lost an impeller and had filter and air in fuel problems on the genset.

Stay away you devil - I don't want any battery problems!

Steering chain jumped it's cog at the pedestal. Jammed the works up pretty good broke a older style block that lead the staysl sheet. The block failed from crevice corrosion. Both replaced and repaired. The pride us wounded a bit it is suggested that will fix that.

Wasn't on the boat this past weekend, but last weekend it was the seal for the hot water heater. I'm happy to say that I avoided the Chief's 3 deadly sins.

Broke the positive lead off of the flame sensor of my Webasto heater while finishing up the install of a new burner unit (found old burner was bad off after routine maint. check).

Fortunately had a spare flame sensor. Optest sat!

Wonder how hot that end of the flame sensor gets- probably hot enough to rule out soldering to keep the failed one as a spare...??

What isn't broken?

My latest bumble was having an exhaust stud break off in the heat exhanger while pulling it off the donor engine to put on the new engine. I spent four nights trying to bang, boil, and drill it out before inadvertently poking a hole through the stud sleeve into the heat exchanger itself. I finally get it back from the machine shop this week -- hopefully for less than what a new one would have cost me.

Fixed the autopilot this weekend, added another turning block to the mainsheet traveler and didn't didn't break anything.

That makes me +2.

Seawater hose clamp - boom, salt water all over the genset. We only ran for about 2 minutes before realizing something was amiss but boy, that was a lot of water. And about 2 hours cleaning up!!! Thankfully no real damage.

I broke the plastic part of the fitting for my galley sink drain.. righty tighty.. lefty loosey.. except when yer upside down and it isn't. A slight turn and then it was loose... the cracking noise clued me in that it wasn't really a good loose though.

Oh well.

have mercy

I am at work so I can't be the one breaking the boat. However the varnish genius is working on her maybe she did. I'll find out when I get home. I did however break the airplane--water got in my window in heavy rain in Orlando and it drained down and shorted out the com panel--the computers loved it.

Boat has been in a little fishing village all weekend, but the 300 miles to get here:
  • The red and green nav lights have an intermittant fault..... they work fine in the day time!
  • Main sheet traveler pin that hold one of the blocks has chipped a bit off and is just about to break. This is my big problem that could be quite expensive. I think I can do 300 miles to a big town as long as the wind is up the bum. Its annoying because I can't see why it has worn through and if I replace it that too will wear through.
  • Lost one shackle pin
We have had 2 days 'off' so I will look at these problems tommorrow. Or the next day.... ish
