Time for a boat update.
Knot a Clew
We will be pulling kit off the Clew this weekend. Plans are to clean her up and get her listed for sale. Her slip lease expires Jan 1 and we hope to sell her before that time. A sad task as she is a good boat.
Our goals for this weekend are to get her pumped out and ready to move to Westlands next week. She will be going in the hard for the next month or so. Then the real work begins.
The last few days
Since the demise of the F150 we have been very busy.
I had a hitch installed on the Escape and used it to retrieve a motor on transmission on Friday last.
We now are in possession of a Hurth 2:1 reduction trans and a Westerbeke W13 marine diesel. Now all I need to do is put it all together and install it in the boat.
Friday night we went out to the Bell and started cleaning and working in earnest.
We discovered there is no real holding tank and have since ordered one from Catalina. In 2 to 3 weeks we will have sanitation.
I endeavored to start on rewiring the boat.
I am about 80% done at the moment.
Our pressure water pump and salt water foot pump failed this weekend, I don’t think they take to working after years of neglect. New ones are on order.
We also boarded the dinghy and did a quick look at the hull, stripping and new paint is in order.
Well that’s it for now. More to come later.
