oil slicks and things that go stink in the night....

there i sa bit of my engine that has been missing for over 2000 miles--and i donot remember ever seeing it in place.  isnt something one would look for--is the  plug or cap to the  hole which is used to  adjust the engine.  could be for timing adjustments--i never had to have timing adjusted so i didnt think about the problem being something so simple.

REFITS AND BREAKAGE....AND CRUISING!!!!!

not mine, as i do my own work ....someone else does your refitting--you go to sea. it breaks..WHAT YE GONNA DO-- call someone while out there or do it yourself--or will ye make  the trip  return to where it was done and gripe about it not working??   seems to me many do the  latter bit--go back into the original port many miles backsliding from their destination to have original  do-er   redo the work. is ridiculous....why not do it yourself so it is done to your own…

sea

i  sit here waiting to repair what broke and some other stuff as well, and i watch th swells of th sea ---   wanting to be there instead of in a harbor--- there is a peace in the ocean that does not exist  in harbor or on land.  there may be  storms and  seas and disrupted water, but there is a peace in htat.

 there are also fishies......

 

i am convinced i   should find a waterman as a mate, as opposed to any other kind of male ...  watermen know the sea and the ways…
