Engine, engine #....January 12, 2014 Day 52

Proof the new 3YM 20 is operating smooth as silk, well as smooth as a 3 cylinder diesel can get. Fully installed, Danny Diesel started within a split second of pushing the electronic start button.

Today I will paint the wood back board and some interior places that need some paint. Doing fiberglass repair to the wood inside the power connection box for the engine dashboard, gps and other electronic equipment that got wet,,,,oops,,,,,,

Looks like I will be Key West bound later this week. Maybe Tuesday, maybe Wednesday,,,,,,Friends are there until Friday so it would be nice to arrive before they leave. Race week starts next Saturday so the anchorage may be busy. That could be good for securing helping hands; it could be bad as the anchorage may be unusually full. Oh well, it's ho, ho, ho a sailor's life for me.

"Yes LI was a washing machine but east of Block over to Buzzards Bay was downright nasty. I'd have enjoyed it more if we could have stopped to smell the roses but this was all about getting there so it was long days."
