Elevator

Elevator we got the shaft. It turns out that the problem does not seem to be the engine or transmission but rather the drive shaft is binding. You know, the one I paid $3,000 to have replaced 8 months ago! Fair winds and following seas:)

A good day

The engine is in. The shaft is aligned. The prop is back on and the rudder is hanging. Tomorrow morning when it is cool I will put the steering quadrants back on. Then we will be ready to splash and sea trial. Since Monday is a holiday we will do it on Tuesday. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Elevator, elevator, but no shaft

It s Tuesday here in Fiji and still no shaft. It seems that the shaft for the other boat was not machined properly so it went back to be fixed. This moved Reboot s shaft back another day. So XO and I wait and bake.With respect to the elevator, elevator comment. Back in the dark ages when I was in high school we got a very creative group of cheerleaders. Tired of the old cheers they created a number of new ones of which I remember two: “elevator, elevator we got the shaft” and “repel them, repel them, make them relinquish the ball.” There were others I am sure but memory fades. This was in the early 60 s and the elevator cheer lasted one game before being banned by the administration.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
