Wishin Too is back in the water

Recommended Posts

Been a while..........since the beginning of June when the gimbal bearing got a bit noisy.

I decided to have engine out for a clean up and change any corroded parts, it wasn't to bad just a new dipstick tube and repainted d0abdf6fa6fabdd4823c9a7b366deda3.jpg

I serviced the drive and freshened up the anti foul yesterday and as the engine had new anodes I changed all the ones on tabs and drive,interestingly the 2 starboard ones were worse than the port ones.Now I wonder if the boat on my starboard which always has shore power is the cause?...!!

Also my batteries were fine after 3 months of not being used or recharged

I took her out tonight for a run at full throttle along the training bank and all was fine so i'm all good to go again

Did you know there is a 10kt speed limit in the swash/boat channel ????

 

Don't worry there are plenty of gin palaces going faster even in the harbour

 

 

Same rules don't apply to some it seems.

 

The same idiots get within spitting distance of me whilst at anchor doing 20kts. What's that all about?

Dave no excuse but 6pm and no other boats apart from the one that went by me while I was doing 10 knots,closest point I could sea trial just in case I did break down.
