Exhaust manifold fabrication will be completed tomorrow for fourth morning in a row. Feeling lucky this time. Spent day of rest screwing off. Same as resting? Going with that.

Exhaust manifold was completed (miracle of the first order) for my installation. Since new flange piece was relocated, of course, all bracing had to be re- engineered. Fortune smiled as 2 hour job only took 4 instead of more typical 6 to 8. Additionally, neighbor with superfluous Honda generator offered a deal so we now own two. This one even works. Box-o-Honda will live in lazarette until disposition in New Zealand.
Sail to Lautoka tomorrow for clearing out before customs and immigration closes will follow major clean-up and settle-up here. May even arm alarm. OK, that was a bit rash, but also expect cafe brekky. Concern remains muted as weather window currently painted closed.
