Engine's in ... still a ways to go
Back in April we thought we had heaps of time for the modifications required on our boat... now in mid August we are doubtful that everything will be up and running before October. Thats the begining of our Lobster Season in South Australia.
A couple of days back the new Motor was put in place... the next day saw all manor of hoses and equiptment attached to the motor... we are next to instal the new shaft and proppeller ( they are being machined and cast this week). There is a hole in the hull which needs to be fiberglassed and a new rudder to be fitted.
Sea trialing the boat and tweeking everything will take some time.There has been a huge amount of maintenance.. Glenn has done an awesome job.
