My new engine
27 October 2009 | Downtown Guaymas
With the old engine out and the 2 ton of backups off the boat, I have now cleaned the engine compartment and am ready to install the new Yanmar. I have to add a little to my old stringers and put them in with epoxy and through bolts and then I'm ready to bolt down the engine. I already dropped the engine in today to check for alignment and positioning and couldn't be more pleased. Susan, check my photo gallery for engine room pics. The looks of the engine room and the old engine compliment each other. On the Ranchito Los Ninos situation....I ordered the cupcakes which were chocolate with orange frosting and a spooky plastic character stuck into the top. I also got these skeleton baskets(plastic) that will be stuffed with candy. Fellow boaters next to me had a truckload of wonderful clothes and school supplies that we are going to take out in the morning.....Boy, did this orphanage strike it rich.
