To quote the immortal words of Ogden Nash ; The Spring is sprung, the grass is riz, Time for boat maintenance it is.  Weeks yard turned on the fresh water hoping that freezing days and nights were over.   That means it is feasible to run the engine on the hard, so I called the technician repairing the diesel.  He had the injection pump overhaul during winter. I suggested he puts it back, so it is in the list, when?  Who knows.  In 1998 I had the steering wheel trimmed with leather while the boat was held up in Chile.  A couple of years ago the leather began to deteriorate, I could not get any local experts to replace it , so I bought a kit from Edson.   The instructions recommend patience. but fortunately there is a video on YouTube.   I will post progress.   Fair winds!
