14 December 2010 | Sun Harbor Marina
It's been a VERY busy weekend for me, I arrived at Sun Harbor on Saturday morning and finished up the varnish prep on my port (left) toe rail, since it was about 75 degrees I was anxious to get the first of three coats on so it could begin to dry, Sunday I was able to get coat two on and yesterday I finished up. within the next couple of weeks I'll start on the starboard toe rail.
Yesterday I also serviced my massive 42 horsepower Westerbeck diesel engine for the first time. When I first bought Si Bon nearly a year ago, my friend Mike Richmond went up to San Pedro with me to bring Si Bon home to San Diego, Mike did all the servicing before we left, in August I hired a guy to service the engine. My friend/electrician Mark Burrows, who owned a diesel repair business before starting his marine Electronics business, came over and gave me a diesel 101 class on servicing my engine yesterday. It was a great chance for me to learn from a VERY experienced diesel mechanic.
When people learn that I retired at 54 they often ask me "don't you get bored" I just smile and say "no I manage to stay pretty busy".
