Which Winch Wench

27 June 2017 | Tipperary Waters Marina
Tuesday 27 June 2017

Finally broke down and called Monday afternoon around 3PM to check on winch stems that had been cleared by customs on the 14th to see if UPS was still in the package delivery business. They passed along phone number of the courier service whither they had been given. Toll Priority woman seemed more concerned about how their number got divulged than my package, which they had, but she wouldn't reveal location for pickup. Right. Literally while on hold awaiting her search, received email notification that delivery had been attempted six days earlier. Driver recorded that no card was left, yet no email and no call. Right. Reconnected, she indicated they would send an SMS sometime before closing, 8PM, with instructions. Right. Straightaway found the place with Google Maps and retrieved parts.

Unable today to procrastinate further, cleaned, greased and remounted winches. Much to the amazement of all concerned they tested properly just before discovery of plastic insulating washers that would require de-wiring and dismounting motors for installation. Joy was barely contained recalling that one barely accessible screw required 1 1/2 hours to tighten when putting the things up. Regrettably it was happy hour, so work was perforce terminated. Any vexation that might have prevailed was alleviated with adult beverage rather than more annoyingly expositive adult vocabulary.

Wednesday

Found misplaced tool that facilitated somewhat less arduous overhead removal and re-installation of 50 kilo motors (slight hyperbole) following which operation was again, amazingly, as desired. Reflecting that problem cropped up on 25 March of last year, have determined that this will never, ever, ever have to be repeated - ever.
