Hinckley Day 8 - The genset is finally returned to the boat

Sky Hook II
The genset was worked on all day and finally made it into the starboard locker this afternoon around 3:30 or so. The mechanic connected all the plumbing together but the electrician had a wedding he had to go to. So, we won't get the electrical side hooked up until Saturday morning. That puts a damper on getting out of here in a timely fashion and I don't know what we're going to do yet, depends on just when the electrician shows up.

The temps got into the high 90's today, hot for this area but we're plugged into electricity so we're nice and cool with the A/C running. According to the forecasts, there's going to be a dramatic cool down over the next few days, sure hope so.

Here's the offending governor!

All else is fine, Hoolie is doing well - no more "rapid transits" which is great since we bought all new rugs. We still have a stop to make in Branford for attention to the freezer unit, it's not keeping the temperature as cold as I would like and we want to get everything perfect for our trip down the ICW in September;. There's always something on a boat...
