Rebuilding the stern head and other fun things.

21 October 2017 | Spanish Waters, Curacao
Bill/ Blowing like stink!
It's now Wednesday afternoon and we waited till 1430 before the "Water Boat" finally showed up. We'd only gotten water a week ago but want to make sure we have plenty for the next trip and can never be sure what the water supply is at our destination. We only took about 50 gallons so that wasn't too bad. Tomorrow, I have my final chiropractor visit at 1300 so I'll be taking the 1130 bus to give me plenty of time to get there plus have lunch at the cafeteria in the grocery store. If my appointment starts on time, it takes about 45 minutes and then some quick shopping at the grocery store and back on the 1430 bus. We will see how tomorrow goes.
A couple more projects to go before we are ready and one of them is to dive on our anchor chain and clean the growth off the prop and all the thru hulls. It loves to grow there and seems to leave the rest of the hull alone which is fine by me.

I think we just added another job to the list. Now that we have the black water tank installed in the stern, Tracy did a flush with our Raritan head and we think it sucked in the growth that has attached itself to the bronze thru hull. Things don't grow a lot on Zephyrs hull but any piece of metal seems to get attacked with long hair coming from the bronze. If we have sucked it in, I'll have to A: Try and fish it out. B: dismantle the head to see if I sucked it in, or C: take off the hoses and see if there is any thing inside them. All we know is that the first time we pumped it, everything was fine. The second time we flushed it, it became MUCH harder to pump the handle.

I was off to the chiropractor again today for probably my last visit. The hypersensitivity in the tips some of the fingers of my right hand has continued for the last 4-6 weeks. Sometimes better but always there.

It's now Saturday and here's how yesterday and today shaped up--job wise. We started in on the stern head. The tank was in as was the head but it just wasn't working right. We took apart the pump and took off the handle for pumping water. In the end, it just made more sense to just take the entire head out of it's narrow slot in the stern head space. It's narrow enough on the right side that it's darn near impossible to get a wrench in to undo the bolts that hold it onto the floor. It's been years since we did this as the Raritan head has been one of our best pieces of equipment. The valves were clean as was the pumping chamber so nothing had gotten sucked in from outside the hull. We had a rebuild kit so we striped down everything and put in all new parts. During that process, as we worked on the head(toilet) in the main salon, suddenly off snapped the main switch(plastic of course)that controls wether the head is filling with water or pumping it out. Well shucks and darnies!!!!(insert curse words of your choosing). We now had a head that was good for nothing until we could find the part and being in Curacao, that wasn't going to be easy. As it was, we did get in one flush and found that it still wasn't working. It would suck in the water but was very hard to get out. We stopped at 1600 and cleaned up since we were invited to "Chapter Two" for "Sundowners" at 1730.

Once aboard Chapter Two, we swapped stories about our days(they are working on their boat getting it ready for sale) and we were, well you know what we were doing. In the midst of telling them our woes, Mike said he had just the part we needed. As a matter of fact, he had the entire pump assembly and would consider selling it to us. As we went back to the boat several hours later after a really fun night of story telling, we couldn't believe out luck to find a boat that actually had the part we needed. This morning, we came to an agreement on the price and took this valuable part back to our boat. We earlier made the trip to the local grocery store so now it was time to do the same thing we did yesterday. Oh joy, we're living the dream out here. At least this time, we didn't have to worry about seized nuts and bolts and the filth that can come out of a well used head. While we were at the grocery store, I stopped in at the local chandlery and bought replacement hose that would go from the toilet to the tank. We'd changed everything else so why not the hose.
Off came the nuts and bolts and out came the head and we took it up on deck for this change. We took off the old pump housing and put in the new. we took off the old hose to the tank and installed the new. Everything was coming together nicely for a change. Once all the parts had been changed, we took the head and hose back below and with lots of wrenches in hand, re installed it where it belonged. We coated the tank intake with more caulk and with three hose clamps got it installed. Every connection has at least two and normally three clamps. We've left off the wall paneling till we can really pump it as the caulk has to dry for 24 hours before we can put pressure on it.
Tomorrow, I'll be strapping on scuba gear and heading below to clean the chain and even bit of bronze that is attached to the hull. The growth, you would not believe. It's a nutrient rich environment here in Spannish Waters. Our plan, as of right now, is to get checked out on Monday and leave sometime on Tuesday for Panama. It's time to get back on the road.
Just for fun, Tracy took our hack saw and chopped the old hose into pieces about every 12 inches. The calcium deposits in the hose were amazing. The actual diameter of the hose is 1.5 inches and it had constricted down to less than a half inch and at one point, it appeared to be totally closed and would only let a bit of water through if you pumped really hard. Tracy wouldn't let me take pictures of the hose since it was "gross".

Our macerator is located under the sink in the stern head and it connects to a thru hull that takes everything over board. We made sure each hose was on properly and hose clamps installed. The big black hose is for the sink drain. Every thru hull has a valve to shut them off should a leak start. The white hoses are for the black water. Special non permeable hoses made to not permit what goes thru it to soak into the hoses.

It's now Monday afternoon and it's been another busy day and not just on our boat.
I was off for my visit to the chiropractor on the 1130 bus. Having an appointment and now being sure about the timeliness of the bus system, I caught an early bus so I wouldn't be late. My appointment was for 1300. I grabbed a quick lunch at the grocery store as they have a cafeteria there. Chopped up chicken with fajita seasoning on rice. Couldn't eat it all and brought the rest back to add to my soup dinner. Once my visit was over and I was messaged, snap, crackled and popped, I headed for the return bus getting back about 1530. On the way back to Zephyr, there looked to be a mad house happening out on the water and all around the boat that's directly behind us. A large(about 52 foot)ketch was dragging it's anchor and the owners were not on board! I unloaded what I'd brought back and headed over to see what I could do to help. There were about 6 dinghies circling the boat with several people already on board but I think the doors were locked and no one could get to the switch to turn on the engine and it was quickly dragging down on the boat to it's stern. Winds were in the mid teens but not huge and I just found out that when the snubber he uses to keep the pressure off his chain broke, the chain in his anchor locker just started flowing out the bow of the boat!! As he came closer and closer to the boat behind him, that boat was blown right across the stern section of the run away boat. I slammed Puffs bow into the down wind boat trying to get him back to the port side of the dragging boat with a bit of success till the owner told me to back off. I circled around and the boat that had been down wind had started his engine and was trying to get around the port side of the sliding boat. As he was just about to clear the bow of the sliding boat, the winds hit him and slowly pushed his stern right onto the bow of the sliding boat and his chain. Again, I slammed Puff into the side of his boat and got him away and then the anchor chain on the sliding boat grabbed one of the side cleats on Puff and didn't want to let go. Once I saw what had happened, I maneuvered Puff till the chain finally fell free and I could get away from it. Another dinghy showed up with another anchor and they tied it to the bow and then took it far off the bow and dropped it into the water and it set and helped keep the boat in one place. About this time, one of the owners of the boat(wife) showed up and get the engine started and everything got sorted out. Here's the really bad thing is that the husband likes to scuba dive and goes out regularly about 1700 by himself and goes diving. Story has it that he had an accident and came up to fast and is in the hospital with the "bends" and may end up paralyzed but we don't know all the details but he is in the hospital. At least his boat is safe now. UPDATE Wednesday morning: We just found out he will not be paralyzed but has a lot of problems he's going to have to overcome.

Yesterday, Tuesday, we finally finished the installation of our infamous black water tank. Two electrical connections and then the fitting of new hoses. The old ones needed replacing as they "wear out"(get stinky after a while). The first one we cut ended up too short but luckily we had more and could get the right size on the second try. The hose that goes from the macerator to the thru hull also needed proper fitting. We soaked the hose ends in hot water so there would be more give to slide over the ends. Hose clamps galore and we were done. Tracy pushed the "on" button and we heard the familiar sound of the macerator spinning. After about 6 weeks, the job was finally done.

I had to change out the filter in our water line as the last time we got water from the "Water Boat", it had sat in their tanks over night and had a distinctive "tank" taste. I took out the old paper filter and put in a charcoal filter to get rid of the taste and now it's fine. We're set to take on more water today as we hope to be out of here by early next week on out way to Panama. Winds are hitting in the high teens to mid 20s so we're waiting for them to settle down a bit plus we want smaller waves as they are at 9 feet at 6 seconds and that's not a fun trip.

Yesterday afternoon, we hosted another game of Mexican Train. Try as I could, I just couldn't beat Johanna off Iiris. She knows her Mexican Train and is a great player.

I just came in from taking the head off the DuoGen to make sure all the gears and screws are good. Winds over the next three days are forecast to be in the 25 knot range and we want to make sure she stays nice and happy on the stern. Once I got that done, we started up the generator again(every day event)to get the batteries back up where they are supposed to be.

I've attached a picture of our tank, now stuck in the wall. You can see the big plate that was welded to the front. The other dots on it are spots we used JB Weld on. Seems to be taking care of the leakage.

Black water tank and socializing

It's now Sunday evening and the work and some play continues. As you read earlier about the repairs to the black water tank and the fact that we still had "stuff" inside the tank, it now became a priority to get what was left out any way we could. Thursday was going to be a busy day.
We tried rotating the tank, over and over. We shook the tank. We did sudden turns from one side the the other, each time hearing "stuff" inside shift. Then came the water. We poured bucket after bucket into the end of the tank and then stood the tank up on end and splashed the water inside, back and forth. Lots more "stuff" came out but there was one piece that made a very audible "clunk" and the tank was shifted. We hoped that shaking the tank just might break it up but each time we tried, it seemed that what it was doing was just knocking other pieces of sediment off the inside. Over and over we did this, standing by the lifelines until a big piece finally made it's way out. It was curved like it had been attached to the interior tube that's used for pumping out. The next time we rotated the tank, there was no more "clunk" inside. We'd finally gotten it out!!! It felt good getting it out as we knew there was always the chance it might shift later and block the pipe on the bottom that the "stuff" comes out of.
We inspected the outside of the tank looking for holes as we wanted to make sure there were no leaks. We found sections that didn't have holes in them that now did. The heat of the welding had misshapen the steel enough that seams had split. We pulled out our tubes of J B Weld, and mixed up numerous batches as we worked our way around the tank. In the end, I'd guess a good 30 hole, some as small as the head of a pin to those much bigger got patched. It then has to dry for 24 hours so we didn't start in on the tank again till Friday morning when we started putting it back inside the space it fits in inside.
To do the fitting, we lowered the tank inside the stern stateroom and slowly wrestled it into the head above the commode making different connections along the way. The air vent needed attaching as did the tube for the deck pump out all those being on the top. Then we had to lift the tank(not losing the connections we'd made) and get it inside it's cavity and up high enough that we could screw it in. We used books and a platform and longer pieces of wood for a fulcrum to lift the tank. Then big screw drivers to more it from side to side till we could at least get one of two screws in. WHAT A PAIN IN THE ASS!!! To say we were sweating was an understatement!!! By the time we finally got it in, we were a MESS! Our clothes were soaked. You could wring sweat out of the head band and neck bands I wear. GROSS! Once we had ten screws in, it was lunch time(started work at 0730) and we had social engagements set up for the rest of the day. Getting together with friends is an important part of the cruising lifestyle.
Friday, I had to go to town to get Digicel to put about 9 gigs of data availability back on our account. They routinely snatch chunks of data from our plan with no one being able to give us a good explanation. Once I got to town, I found that the normal store I go to for service was now closed as it was being remodeled. I had to go to a new store they had taken over till the remodel was done. Once I was finished there, I hiked out to the "Anchor Permit" office to renew our anchor permit for staying here in Spanish Waters. Ended up finding I was one form short of what I needed(Immigration form)but with their office right below where I was, the wonderful folks understood my problem and made copies for me so I could get the permit reissued. Strangely, they charge $10US for the permit even though the normal currency here is the Dutch Guilder.
I was on my way back on the 1100 bus having gone to town on the 0800 bus.
Once back on Zephyr, we had a quick lunch and we were off to another boat for a game of Mexican Train and once we had done that we had an invite to have "Sundowners" with Roy and Ann on Serenity getting there about 1800 for a wonderful evening. Ann even made great small pizzas! In our discussions we all decided to dinghy over to "Santa Barbara Beach" on Saturday afternoon for some fun in the sun. Santa Barbara Beach is right at the entrance to Spanish Waters were we are anchored so it was an easy trip. They've made an enclosed section right at the waterline with a long dock running about 75 feet off shore and running parallel to the shore giving us an nice calm enclosed swimming area. Lots of local were there and even a wedding was going on out on the pier. There was even a drone flying overhead with people playing in the water and working on their tans. It was really nice to just wade in the calm water letting the time go by. Yes, there were the occasional screaming kid but on a beach, it's the norm.
Today, Sunday we had another bout of Mexican Train where I'm proud to announce I actually WON! I had a lucky day. Tomorrow, I'm off to the chiropractors office again and we still have to finish the tank installation but the weather has really worsened so we are stuck here for at least the next week. Big winds and big seas. No fun, at least that's the forecast as of now but we all know how that goes, don't we?

Running errands and getting our tank back.

Bill/Partly cloudy
It's been a busy last few days which is why I haven't posted anything. On Monday, I had my appointment with a new chiropractor at 1200. As I had a few things to do in the neighborhood I got there quite early. I've been on blood pressure meds for years and my supply was getting down so I stopped at the local "Botika" for what ever I could get. It was a busy store since it was a Monday and they are closed(as most businesses are) on Sunday and I waited my turn. When I got to the counter, I pulled out my bag of bottles(four) and the clerk seemed a bit taken aback. I pulled out the bottles one by one and she confirmed that she had them in stock. She took the bottles and I took a chair. About 20 minutes later, I got called to the counter and handed a bill of $88 guilders($49US) for a thirty day supply of pills. Not cheap by VERY necessary. I paid at the front counter and returned to the pharmacy area and again took a seat. A few minutes later, I was handed my pills and off I went.
Needing some Guilders, I stopped at an ATM only to find that it didn't accept my card. The second one did so I had money to pay for my chiropractor visit as she doesn't accept credit cards(doesn't do emails either). Off for her office, getting there at 1150. She opened the door(always kept locked for some reason) and I took a chair. At 1240 I finally got in to see her. My session lasted about 40 minutes and I got every bone in my back and neck cracked at least once and some probably twice. I've go some tingling in the tips of my fingers on my right hand and figured something was out of line. She also pounded my back with some kind of tool and then messaged the muscles in my back and both arms. I did feel better when I left but the tingling still hasn't gone away. I've another appointment with her late this morning. Being so late and as I had two more places to visit plus catching a lunch of some sort, I didn't get back to the boat till after 1500. A long day with lots of delays.
Tuesday was a holiday here in Curacao so nothing happened and we never left the boat. We did get an email from the welder that our tank was ready so we called and reserved a rental car for yesterday(Wednesday). They picked us up about 0930 and once the paperwork was done, we dropped off our laundry and headed for the welder. Being a very busy place and it being the day after a holiday, we again waited as other people got helped ahead of us. In the end, the tank got loaded into the car and the bill paid($400US) and off we went. We needed more cat litter and a few more things our local grocery store doesn't carry so we were all over town again not getting back to Zephyr till 1500.
As we pulled the tank out of the car, we could hear more chunks of debris bouncing inside the tank!! It was supposed to be empty but apparently more things had popped free. We were both upset that what we thought was fixed still had problems. Once back on the boat, we started the same thing we had done before, pouring water into the tank and trying to get what was inside out. We'd gotten all the big chunks out before the "repair" so most of what we got out this time was much smaller chunks. We had to stop about 1630 as I had to take off to pick up our laundry at 1700. Now we get to start the patching of all the smaller holes that are still in the tank. The welder covered the big holes but there are a dozen or so smaller holes that we will be covering with JB Weld today, plus once thats dry, putting in more water and trying to get what's left in the tank out. Gee, are we living the dream or what?

Working on the black water tank, etc.

It's now Saturday just before lunch and the last few days have been busy. As you saw in our last post, we stripped down two of our winches for sorely needed cleaning and lubricating. Thursday, we did the same to our largest winches(Lewmar 55ST)in the afternoon. In the morning, we went to the grocery store in the free bus. Each of these winches takes a minimum of 2 hours to really take them down to just a pile of steel and bearings. Cleaning off the corrosion and dirt and getting grease and oil in where needed and then rebuilding them. It really helps taking pictures on the IPad as we went along as once apart, parts shift on trays and get out of order. A quick look at the picture and all is well. They both now spin easily. YEA! Another long put off job done.
Earlier in the day, Tracy started in on more areas where we store food and "stuff" and gutted more things from the boat. We took in four big bags of just junk that we no longer needed. She's not working on our "Utensils" drawers in the galley getting rid of things we just either don't use any more or never really did use but thought we would.
The "Water Boat" was supposed to show up on Wednesday but got rained out by a deluge of rain that went on for hours with lightening and lots of thunder. She finally showed up Thursday morning as she continued her rounds. We think her meter as to how much water is pumped off her boat is off as our tanks were about half full(at full we hold about 265 gallons)and yet she pumped in over 220 gallons. That just can't be right but there's not much you can do about it other than pulling up the anchor and going to the yacht club and getting it there and that's a pain as the anchor chain is a mess with lots of growth. At least the tanks are full and we won't be needing her services again as we hope to be gone in about two weeks.
Yesterday(Friday) we finally got over to the welders shop as he said he could fit us in(only been 16 days since we left it with him). He assigned one of his workers to cut a hole in the top of the black water tanks so we could clean out all the "UCK" left in the tanks. We took the tank around the side of his building once the hole was cut in the top of the tank and then with big scrapers and brushes we went at it getting all the caked on layers of what now looked like fertilizer(didn't smell at all) out. The clog in the bottom of the tank was easily explained as chunks as big as 6 X 8 and an inch thick and lots of smaller chunks with it. It took a while but we finally got as much out as we could and then used their pressure washer to get what ever was left out. Here's where it took a turn. The force of the pressure washer made more holes in the top and sides of the tank where smaller holes were, now became larger holes. We have lots more that needs to be repaired. Some I can JB Weld(thick epoxy) closed but others will need his services to have small plates welded over. He's super busy so instead of getting it done then, it's now been put off to Monday late night or Tuesday some time. He will email us when and then we have to rent another car and do this all over again.
This afternoon, I took apart and serviced the last two winches in the cockpit. Both Lewmars--a 40 and a 44ST. Both worked find but really needed some lubing so they will run smoother. Only took about three hours to three and a half hours to get them all taken care of. Only one problem and that is a screw at the bottom of one that holds the cap on that covers the pawls into the center post. It somehow came unscrewed heaven only knows when and it's now buggered and will need replacing. Shouldn't be hard as it a 1/4 X 20 flat head screw that's 1/2 inches. Might find it in one of the local marine stores on Monday.
Tracy is feeling a bit under the weather so she took it a bit easy today only taking out the kitchen drawers and re organizing everything in them. Much lighter and better organized so we can find things.
Yesterday was Mexican Train Day with Johanna and Timo over from Iiris for our afternoon game. We spent the morning cleaning up and putting away all the tools we've been using on our different project from last week. It was another sunny hot day with not much wind for a change and the same is forecast for this week. Guess we will see if Mother Nature got the forecast. Today(Monday) I have a chiropractor appointment at noon so we will see how that goes. I have to make sure I'm taking the right bus so I won't be late.
The picture today is of Timo, Johanna and myself after our Mexican Train game(I won for a change).
