*Transmission update- After years of service, the tranny needs a rebuild, so that's been this week's project. Unfortunately, the way our boat is designed, engine access is difficult at best, and in order to remove the transmission, the whole engine needed to come out. And sit on the saloon floor. And the table that's usually there? That's up by the v-berth. In this photo, Green has his "game face" on while standing in the bilge where the engine was. He's taking advantage of the engine being out (yes, that's the beast behind him on the floor. No, we are not staying aboard tonight.) to replace the mounts and paint the bilge. Hopefully the tranny rebuild will be done soon and this can be buttoned up by this weekend!
