Cleaning up

I have been moving around a great deal, and then of course it has been very hot, but I am finally getting some of my projects handled.  The wood floor of the dinghy has lost most of its paint which means that it is getting wet all the time.  The current project is to repaint the floor. Of course I don't want it to look too good.  I want to be the most miserable looking dinghy so that the bad people will steal someone elses!

After Hurricane Irene the lower unit of the outboard was leaking oil. I called around and found out that it was a $10 part.  I decided, what the heck, I will let someone else install it.  $200 later I got my engine back.  The good news is that the throttle linkage has rusted out.  Had I tried to use the dinghy I would most likely have been stuck.

  1. Keeping the vessel in check is quite vital, this helps to avoid bottle-necks while sailing. The costs relatively vary depending on the extend of repair.
