Most of today’s posting is devoted to the engine room makeover. What a difference a fresh coat of paint makes! We decided to paint the bilges grey instead of white to avoid the dinginess that it is inevitable in a bilge with dirty water sitting in it. The grey does not show up dirt quite as easy.

Everything is almost back to normal now including my posting time. It is boat show weekend so don’t expect to catch John at the office much today – he has “bigger fish to fry”. And most of the crew is off today as we have basically gone to a 4 day week until the real haul out season begins. It is more fall-like today and should prove to be a great weekend for the show after these clouds move out a bit later. Whenever we are working in someone’s engine room we try to look for unrelated problems that might crop up on a survey, such as this exhaust hose we spotted while doing an oil change. If you zoom in on the photo you can see the cracks in it.
