Well a small project was pulling the pumps and heat exchanger for inspection. One of the pully wheel is bent, the impellers look good and the heat exchanger is clear.

Well a beautiful day in the 907. Finally guit dumping rain and decided to cool down to 20-f (-6.6-c). Off for 3 days so no time better then the present.

Project 1: scrape the 2-inches of ice off the boat.

Project 2: ALL the port lights leak. As in buckets under each window. Good thing it did freeze back up. Wood trim removed, 1/4 plywood removed (totally rotted).

Well its been one of those years. I think we all can say that. I recently (2 days ago) had back surgery. Needless to say this whole "Now it begins" has turned into "Now its paused". Not really allowed to do much for the next 6-weeks or so. I will get back to it after the pause.

Next list of items while the boat is on the hard include the packing gland, sanding and repainting the bottom and renting a man lift to replace all the goodies on top of bot mast. I may also start replacing the sails, main first, but that can happen once it is back in the water.

Hopefully come April I can get back to it between work.

Well since there is a wee bit of snow around the boat I figured I might as well remove the water heater. Back is feeling better and the 12-f helps to keep thing numb.

And back to it. Looking for a pesky leak that only occurs while running the engine. Checking out the wet exhaust now. May have to cut an access hole to get to the high spot loop.
