    Dylan's New Boat Anarchy

    I spent yesterday with the wheel House floor up kneeling on the joists while messing with the bugged up fuel line Like attempting to fix a heating boiler through a hole in the ceiling The primary filter had the odd gobbet of black sludge spread across the surface I changed it and the engine ran for a while and died Opened it up More gunge I rowed home a beaten man Aching and whiffing of diesel Today I returned, changed the impellor Just to start with a success Then Removed the primary filter Ran some fuel into a container and fitted a third filter Bled the system, she fired up and ran very well for the rest of the afternoon I have put a triple dose of bug dissolver into the fuel system So far so good. I have spare filters on board and the outboard on the back So I will run it until it stops again Next job is to fit a fuel pump to transfer diesel to the header for the taylor heater Then with an engine and and a cabin heater I can get on with the winter sailing Everything else can be done as I go along Painting cupboards, varnishing, stripping claggy carpet tiles from the floor, re wiring I fekkin hate fettlin
  9. My recent 300 miler from Newcastle to Suffolk gave me time to think about the mixed pleasures of returning to my own mooring (or pontoon berth} happiness and immense satisfaction about a job reasonably well done, the sleep of the dead in the security of a familiar berth in my case coming home means negotiating the bar, then comes the sail up the estuary with the incoming tide, the phone call to Jill that I am home and would she plese row over to pick me up the contented feeling that an adventure is over but sadness too that the adventure is over D
