Just one photo today of the finished cushions in the main cabin.
The big news of the day was that I got my engine going. My neighbor with a similar engine was having work done on his Yanmar by www.alsmobilemarineservice.com, so Al came over afterwards and got it going. The starter I ordered from amazon did not work very well and after fluffing around with jumper cables and dead batteries, I took the battery out of my car and finally after trying for about 10 minutes the engine started. We only ran it for about 20 seconds because I didn't have the water run to it for cooling. Now I have to change the oil, change the oil filter, change the 2 fuel filters and run new diesel. I am not sure what to do with the old fuel but I plan on emptying all of one tank into the other until I decide and buying new diesel for the empty one. On Friday, Al will be back and we will run the engine with water hooked up and check the propeller shaft and other things. I also have 4 motor mounts ($600!) to install. Phew!
