Time seems to have stood still here but the work has began to move in a forward motion . Now before I begin let me say finding parts in an area full of marinas and boats is most difficult . Burt has spent an immense amount of time going from place to place looking for simple things so it would seem . In his efforts it has come down to no more than doing what he was doing here at home – some 6 hours away from the coast , ordering it and waiting for delivery . Surprise ! Not to say all of his efforts were doomed to UPS he was able to find Allen at the prop shop in Wilmington NC .
Allen was very willing to make our drive shaft and order the prop and have it all done and ready in a couple of days . Now time to get that new engine rigged up and fired up .
Burts weekend consisted of installing the shaft and propeller and putting in the transducer .
