10 July 2019
On May 19th we polished the rub line 2 times , looks great . I returned to the boat in storage and drained the antifreeze from the port motor and filled it with water and soap in order to flush out any oily residue which was detected in a sample last fall .
On May 30th I installed a new shaft seal on the starboard shaft and the realigned props were installed and the boat went into the water.
We drove home . The next morning we were up early and packed Lori's jeep to the roof and after my dental appointment we headed back to the boat, cleaned everything including the carpet and unloaded the car. I flushed the port motor twice and refilled with new antifreeze . On the 2nd we cleaned more and then Mikki and Fred arrived and we went out for a ride . Lucky as I found out some things were not working . The 3rd was spent on final touches and fixing a few things . On the 4th we made final touch ups and drove to Port Huron for some boat parts and shopping . Then back in Sarnia we met John and Sandy for lunch at Patty Flaridays . We had a great visit and then home as the neighbours were coming for pizza and wings at 6:30pm .
We had 1 day to get ready to fly to Winnipeg for my 50th year reunion from university as we were leaving at 4am to drive to Hamilton .
