At least the prevarication was only to myself. Indeed, I was tired today. The past 3 days had me on an emotional high as SPRAY took 2nd place to having any physical work being done. That's not entirely true as I did complete the stern castle window, have the helm lines adjusted, and the bottom cleaned. What I need to do right now is get off this blog and order the auto helm belts. Before that, I need to thank who  ever is in charge of Sea Knots for featuring my previous blog.

We have 2 Yanmar 2GM20s, luckily many suppliers make filters, anodes and belts for them at better prices. We try and use Gates brand belts as they seem to last longer. Also have a complete water pump spare as it is easier to swap pumps than change an impeller in a hurry.

We use trampoline netting, the type that kids have in backyards, have got 13 years out of existing nets, not sure if it would be suitable for your tri.

Anyway have FUN.

Hi Marlene,

I'm so behind on news from you. What's happening? I'm back in Lauderdale with my boat having done a January trip down the ICW from NC, and I'm about to go back and read all your previous blogs, but would love to hear from you.

Well, I ordered the belts from Auto Helm not thinking about researching the belt manufacturer. I'll try them this week to make sure they fit. Next time, I might contact you before I order something. Currently, I need 30 inch stanchions, and nets. I am looking at a place called ' Sunrise trampolines are expensive......Any ideas? Oh yea, and I need lots of engine belts and hoses for my Yanmar 2gm.

Thanks for tuning

Hope you are getting the belts from the belt manufacturer and not the auto helm people, saving yourself some dollars.
