Dave spent two days snipping wires and bringing order to the electrics where before there was chaos.
He is a man who loves a plan that works. He says he can talk, think and work at the same time. The electrics look so much better now.
While Dave was doing the difficult stuff I was doing the simple labour so Harmony has now had a single coat of Flag anti-foul applied – which always makes a boat ashore look better. I have cleaned the starboard side of the decks and started scraping off the vinyl stripe ready for Barry to apply the new graphic – I am afraid I am making a bit of a hash of getting the stuff off – it has been on there for 20 years or more
I am going to need the little Honda for the dinghy because it is the best little engine I have ever owned – air cooled , fuel efficient and trouble free.
I will also take the Tohatsu as the back-up engine so the stern is starting to look a bit cluttered. The boarding ladder, aerial and maybe a solar panel has to be added
The Tohatsu seems to fit the bracket perfectly and is running at about the right depth – the charging coil will also be pretty useful but the external tank will be a right pain
finally in the evening – a stunning sunset great day
What with the drive to Littlehampton and the daily commute to Paynes boat yard I clocked up quite a few miles, I also bought some outboard fuel and some diesel for the inboard so that was another £100
I spent £50 on boat related gubbins si that is around £550 so far. I will have another £250 to pay at Littlehampton, £60 license for Chichester Harbour and £400 for the pontoon space at Hayling Island. I am now overdrawn and am leaning on the credit cards – but I expected that. DVD sales are around ten a week – so that helps a bit.
So if you fancy a DVD – now would be an excellent time to buy one.
