Some Repairs Done, Some To Do.

12 January 2013 | Croudace Bay, Lake Macquarie.
Heat Haze and Hot.
Over the last three days I have been organizing repairs for the cutlass bearing and the engine re-alignment. This will involve being lifted onto the hardstand at Marmong Point Marina at 1300 hours on Monday. On Tuesday I hope the work above will be completed. During the liftout I will apply this years antifouling.

The cost here are below that at home and there are marine mechanics avaliable, which we don't have in the Camden Haven.

I can now confirm that we have solved the oil light issue as we replaced the pressure switch in the engine.

During the last three days I have been looked after by Greg and Bear. I can only say that without these two blokes I would not have been able to get done what I have. Greg did the original run around to get the info required and Bear has looked after me as well as helping today to get the gear necessary to apply the anti-fouling.

May not be any posts now untill Wednesday night while I am working on Seaka.

Phillip.
