Beautifully clear sky all night and day - but COLD air! Only 6C at 0830 and no more than 15C over the day.
Joblist Rear engine seal replaced. Aquadrive engine mounts (new Oct '05, Lynnwood Marina, N. Vancouver) found to be loose (badly installed) - to be re-done tomorrow. Gear oil replaced- discovered there is a drain plug, I hadn't known existed, to make job easier! (Still learning things about my engine!) Faulty engine-compartment blower found to be OK - implies power supply problem.... will hopefully be resolved once new relay in place in ignition circuit.
Decided to list all jobs outstanding - goes something like this:
Mast steps - instal. Gooseneck toggle - replace. Wind-vane at mast-head - replace & run new wire; SSB radio - run 3" copper strip between ATU & new ground-plate; InmarsatC terminal - fix in proper position (has been lying loose for over a year!); New AIS standalone receiver - fix and run wire; New Raymarine multi/repeater unit - fix & sort out wiring; Deal with faulty wiring to chart table area from both cockpit and autopilot course computer; Navtex - replace display unit & check aerial for corroded fixing; Fix, & run wire from, new radar scanner and also chart-plotter (when each received); Fit new ST6002 (autopilot control head) once received; Calibrate autopilot and new speed display, also check ship's compass. Investigate faulty 12V outlet at chart-table; Finally (although I've probably forgotten several items!), I have to sort out papers, books, CDs, magazines etc and, most importantly, the forepeak needs lots of attention (ie tidying!) ready for stowing sails, gear & provisions for forthcoming long passages
