Not Wot as the Brits say. Or what not.
Sure, why not. Time to hit the water. It would have already happened, just way to windy for launching anything. Tomorrow the winds will die down so my next post will be a “wet” one. So lets bang this “dry” one out.
Friday after noon I broke out the sewing machine and repaired my bosun chair which a rat had its way with. While I was at it I made a winch bag out of the leg of some old jeans. Met up with Kostas Saturday morn and headed down to Piraeus. He had to get a water heater for some installation and we got the last hydraulic plug so I now can finish up my steering thang. On the way back I hung out on a Hallberg Rassy sailboat while Kostas changed the exhaust elbow. Man, what a slick boat them Rassy’s are! On the way back we stopped buy the “wood dudes” who are restoring a old kaiki.
Sunday I changed the fuel filters. CAV filters suck!!! There is no way to change them without spilling diesel all over the place. I’m so happy with my secondary filter which you just pop the top off, pull out the filter, replace… bada bim! But you can see the mess in the bilge the CAV created!
So then I hung out, relaxed and watched Kostas wooden boat project get some love. They started the first layer of side planking. It looks odd and they went at it with a nail gun. I’ve always wanted a nail gun but I’m better off without one cause I probably would have nailed my self somewhere.
ps…. does anyone pay attention to details?? “I’m not an alcoholic. I’m a Drunk! Alcoholics go to meetings” My favorite shot glass. Thanks Sis!
