OK, the projects have been progressing as they typically do on any boat project, hence I often go two steps backwards to get one step forward. Such as its been the last two weeks. However there is light at the end of the tunnel, the engines are just about finished as the last step was replacing the oil seals in the sail drives, I still have to adjust the valves on the generator. My current project has been dropping the rudders to clean, inspect and repaint them and the stainless steel shafts. And similar to what happens with every boat project the port side rudder was relatively easy to drop, not so for the starboard side. The starboard side houses the autopiolit, which blocks access to the rudder post bolts...so I became familiar with how to remove the autopiolit. I hope I'm now at the point where I'll put things back together rather than taking them apart and begin to make Makana look nice with a fresh cleaning and a coat of wax....as soon as I finish my last project......
