09 July 2015 | Mossel Bay
While we wait out the season in Mossel Bay, we are upgrading.
The new geyser means that the morning expletives emanating from the captain when trying to get the old rusty job going for a shower are now absent from the whole socio/mechanical matrix of Sweet Waters. Lets just leave it at that, shall we?
The pumps and base of the heads (toilet) were also renewed. That was a crappy job but it's well worth it in the end.
We also decided to have a header tank and heat exchanger of the engine built from stainless steel along the lines of the original aluminium one. The last one had the ability to corrode away surreptitiously with all sorts of interesting consequences. This meant producing quite a few technical drawings, one of which is featured.
