GB, she’s looking amazing. With the bigger damper, it’s hard to see what else could be a factor. I’m betting on success. On the plus side, no one can suggest that you don’t know how to get the motor plumbed and wired at this point. You’ve certainly practiced it enough.

Thanks Jaysen! Appreciated. :D

We awoke this morning sans the every day comforts underpinned by electricity. Living in a small and sparsely settled rural area, that meant no water pumps, toilet cistern refilling after flushing, hot water, lights etc.

At dawn a flight of pelicans had collided with and taken out the over-Noosa-River power line that allows us to live electrically enhanced idyllic semi wilderness lifestyles just over the river from the hustle and bustle of Noosa.

Then the phones started ringing from the neighbours. The line repair could take days. Who had candles, batteries, food, alcohol etc?.

There went any boatbuilding. But hey, it's kick started a great isolated community party! :lol:

When we lose power at the house, it turns into a big party cooking all the fish stocked in freezers. You eat it it feed sharks. There’s always enough liquor. Just have to remember who that “people with problems” are and pace their consumption.

Michael, I’m surprised you aren’t equipped to happily go off grid ................... with a generator! :D

Up here in the wild north, where cyclones often threaten, with a gas b-b-q and a generator we happily go without power when required. I think our best effort is about 2 weeks off grid! :lol:

Lee, this is the first time we've lost power for more than a few minutes in over six years, so it's hard to justify the cost of installing an off-grid backup system.

Yes, it's important to remember to keep oneself tidy. :lol:

Got a few more electrical connections done today, and installed the hinged lid over the engine box instrument panel.

Really like your design of the instrument cluster and cover along with the whole engine cover!

I love that song! As a kid, we use to dance in the living room to that and a lot of Kenny Rogers and older country songs. Love the classic country.

I can't stand the rock songs that are called country now. :roll:

Oh dear.

Recent posts, Barry's excluded, would suggest that a certain part of Skinnydip is of particular interest to those approaching CLOOF status.

As a confirmed CLOOF who has nearly escaped the rule of the tool, my sympathies to each of you. :lol:
