    Default Pit Stop

    I thought I'd get MF's injectors a quick service last September. She's finally got the new ones in today. (unuseable inbetween times).

    Luckily I got cancer in the mean time, so have not needed her much.

    Mind, the injector job still beats Kwackers outboard mending job, which started sooner and we still await.

    Cancer mending is now quite a few months quicker than boat mending and a dam sight cheaper too.

    The next battle is to get a service before the anodes run out.

    Then of course it's antifouling, the onsite lot had MF's davits on Ebay within 12 hours of saying they were scrap!!

    Honest reasonble menders in Wales, seem as rare as hens teeth.

    The one we had years ago in Pwellihi??, we used to just send him a few hundred quid, but never got a bill.

    Can't get the staff these days. A bit like plumbers.

    All the maintenance people servicing our marina are filling their boots at the moment. 4 boats sank over the festive period due to frost. Sea cocks cracking, heat exchangers fracturing etc. They have only just managed to hoist them out as the ice has finally thawed, after 42 days!!

    Rafiki is still afloat, but I have not yet fired her up to see if there is any damage. Fingers crossed.

    Sorry Haydn, a bit rambling, and doesn't really help you..........

    Good to hear you are on the mend too.

    What would you say to the mending guy............You know the one who's doing the outboard, mends engines and and stuff.


    Does the boat teaching stuff..........

    Anyway he's supposed to be mending a water leak, because of the frost.

    He said, it's bloody complicated under your sink, I dont understand plumbing!!

    'He said it's bloody complicated under your sink'

    That translates inter Welsh.
