OK, so this week’s charter is not going to happen, as the customer wasn’t able to get a large enough crew in time. But it did get me out there this morning bright and early to finish oiling the decks, which I’ve been meaning to finish up for a week or two. So that was good. I think I’ll pretend that the charter will still happen, which will put my butt in gear for getting a few other items accomplished as well. That way I’ll be a bit better prepared next time around.
Greg is coming to get the remainder of his stuff off of the boat today, so that will free up significant space for me. I’ll plan on replacing the seals in the aft Vacuflush, as they’re overdue and starting to fail. Haven’t done it before, but how hard can it be if it comes in a kit? I can read and follow instructions…Maybe even tackle a little touch-up varnish.
Meanwhile, if y’all know anyone interested in taking a sweet little vacation up in the San Juans, here’s your link: http://www.abcyachtcharters.com/
replacing the seals won`t be difficult I`m sure,( maybe a bit messy but nothing a pair of rubber gloves won`t sort) just make sure that you have the (correct)”sea cocks” turned off if you have to release any flanges and pipes etc,
