Mañana Time!!!

As I write this, we are sitting in a cozy little condo, waiting for work to get done on the boat.

Waiting is the key word here, as nothing happens on schedule. Patience is the skill we are working hard to acquire.  But before we arrived in Mexico, Bill drove down from Alberta and we spent a week in Park City, enjoying my kids and family. Whitney was also in town and I was in heaven.  We took advantage of the time together by taking the girls to Hogle Zoo,

introducing Bill to our traditional Brighton Frisbee Golf, where he got all kinds of advice and experiences in his first round.

We departed Park City and headed for San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico, taking only two days to drive there.  However, Bill and I have both agreed we don’t like each others driving and will try hard to not be backseat drivers.

If you remember, twice last winter we sailed into port backwards because our transmission had failed.  Bill spent the summer researching why the failures and we brought a new transmission down with us.  Hopefully, the third time will be the charm. Replacing the transmission is part of the delay but we are also having the bottom sand blasted and repainted.  This is being completed at the same time we are pulling the old transmission, damper plate, cutlass bearing, dripless packing and truing the shaft as well as installing a new prop. To do all this, we have to remount the motor 2″ forward.  (Sorry Pete, we are putting in a flexible coupling). To do everything mentioned, we will need to head for San Diego. We have now been here two weeks and the hull is sandblasted, period.  Just Dandy is still in the back yard and we can not get on her yet to pull the transmission. Maybe mañana!!

In the meantime, we are trying to make the best of it, enjoying the pools,
