Hello, Steve Shimanek in American Samoa
; I bought a Lancer
36 a few months ago and have been putting in a lot of time on repairs
, with more to go. I did a valve job and cleaned the fuel
injectors, but the engine
is still tired; i need to do an in water
replacement of the cutlass bearing; paint
after taking out the old headliner
, etc etc. I was a marine
repair professional earlier in life.
I have been reading on this site for a while and thought it was time to register. Sailing goal is to complete preliminary repairs
, sail locally for a while before major refit
and engine rebuild
, then prep for a South Pacific
jaunt before sailing back to Hawaii
, where my wife and I lived for many years before moving here.
