Another productive day. I want to splash the boat on Saturday and all I have remaining, is to scrape the bottom and paint it. This morning I fired up the Yanmar and true to form, she burst into life in a fraction of a second. If I get a chance I am overdue on a oil and filter change. Ditto, I can report success on a propane leak down test producing an excellent cup of morning Joe. I moved forward onto the monitor wind-vane re-installation.
I managed to overcome the bent boomkin by adding some shims and the result is that the windvane is now vertical. I went onto painting some of my topsides that were scratched up during a violent thunderstorm back when I was docked in New Bern, NC. I then transferred all my tools into a Husky tool bag that fits perfectly under the bottom step above the bilge.
