Beautiful Friends Complement Sunset Year 2 Day 6 January 24, 2014

No blogging the past few days due to a pleasant interruption by friends Carol and Paul. Their visit is a real treat as they are the first ones to visit during Year 2 of my nomadic lifestyle. Here in Boot Key adjustment has been easy. The masthead light is working, even though I forgot to put the LED bulbs in. That should be an easy change. Monday the Yanmar will bless Danny Diesel.

Good Day -- Bad Day

Golly I hate being sick. Not that anyone does although in my business I've met quite a few who yearn for their next ailment. Be that as it may, having a stuffed head, annoying throat, and sneezy, stuffy nose makes me want to curl up in bed. No it doesn't. It makes me want to search for the perfect remedy.

"Chris, the 43 is a great boat and I'm sure you'll enjoy it should you finalize the purchase. As you took notice of the sump below the engine does not drain to the bilge. My understanding is that it's designed that way so as to prevent…"

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Christopher Gaver's discussion Single bilge pump and standing water in engine compartment in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"The boat has two bilge pumps, one electric and one manual. On my 40, I replaced the original pump with a Rule 2000 and a check valve. The original pump would always lose its prime. The engine bilge does not drain into the main bilge in case of an…"
