    Default Thats us ready to go...

    Just been lifted back in.
    A good clean up, new " shorter" propshaft plus new cutlass bearing .
    Treated boat to new bilge pump, trod on old one and broke it.

    Who ever fitted previous shafts made em a tad to long. Fine if you spend your entire time in 1000 fathoms of water but blimming useless when trying to moor at Henley.
    Now a nice big gap between blade tips and back of counter balanced rudders.
    Can really thump stuff now and not hit rudders.
    ....and yes did have a couple of tins with a mere lick of A/F in each.

    Default Patmans Wharf. Upnor

    The crawler crane is doing the lifting .
    Terry Patman has now retired but his relatives have taken over operating the yard.
    If you are prepared to set slings,get a mate or two to help steady when lifting and do your own blocking off, a very economical place to get your boat out of the water.
    Sorry,no outlets selling boat shoes or Raybans or restuarant on site but there is a proper pub just across the road,

    Wondered where you'd gone, came past your berth last Sunday. Would you kindly mend the weather, it was alright while you were out.

    The chap in the next mooring down contacted me by email demanding my prompt return.
    Apparently my boat shelters his from the waves and wind/sleet usually coming from the direction of some place called Cuxton.
    He had to turn his boat round in order to get nights sleep.
    What thinks you of my new innovative Blue N Red contrasting designer A/F scheme.
    Was either that or new Rolex to keep up my image as a boater,that and my Amarni overalls .

    Sorry didn't notice the other crane, thought the rusty one was doing the lifting, hence my surprise!

    Very innovative Fred, we've got to come out sometime soon.
    Do you know anyone that would be able to fit new shaft seals ( in a couple of months)
    .I've still got to work out what I want, got DSS at the moment.
