Together at last!

Our engine and propeller that is.

The new split half coupling arrived on Tuesday as promised and once fixed on we spent the limited daylight every evening during the week aligning the engine. There was not quite enough shaft available for the flexible coupling to quite meet the gear box spider so a few washers were required to space it out.

This morning we were finally on the move again and have completed a short trip to test the new coupling.

  1. Well done! I passed by your mooring this morning and heard the tinkling of spanners!
