I like to thank each and every one of you who have contibuted to my threads - This is a real success story - with your help I have fixed my over heating
problem, learnt how to keep a wooden boat on a slip for more than 48 hours, the dangers of seacocks and how to install one correctly - how the exhaust
system on a boat works, wooden hull
repair, sucking out old oil
and much much more.
You may wonder why don't I just go to the boat yard mechanic
and get all this done, the problem is where my boat lives there is no boat yard, no boat shop just 2 mechanics that work mainly on out-boards and fibre glass boats. The nearest professional advice is 3.5 hours drive away and would have cost > $ 1000.00. Most of the parts
I have purchased had to come from Europe
or the US. The previous owner of the boat took off overseas for a 6 month holiday and by luck I found you guys on this forum to help me.
The boat lives in one of the most remote
but absolutley beautiful part of South Eastern Australia
( Mallacoota Victoria).
Thanks again everyone and if you happen to be visiting Melbourne, drop me a line and I'd be more that happy to assist in what ever way I can - See you all for my next project
