Avocet's new steering cables are in place and the system is working great. I'm really happy with the setup and how it has simplified and slimmed down the system. The swage master link to chain is a great way to go.
The backup fuel pump that was blocked (and caused the engine failure last month) has also been repaired. As it turns out, when I had rebuilt the fuel system, I was a little overzealous with the thread sealer. Some of it must have been pushed into the fuel line and that is what caused the clog. Well, lessons learned. . .
Avocet is again ready to hit the water and do some sailing. Now all I need is some time to do it.
