We had a great weekend despite the keels. Jack Sadrakula flew in from Chicago. We successfully cast another porthole deadlight, he help me unsuccessfully patch a keel. He then completed the gadget that connects the #60 chains to the 3/8″ steel cable for the chain and cable steering system, and then help me unsuccessfully patch the keel again. He then broke and fit the #60 chain and centered up the drive shaft coupler on the helm’s gear box and helped me unsuccessfully patch the keel again. Randy Martin drove in from Denton Texas and while Jack drilled, reamed and set the pull out dowel pins in the rudder quadrant. Randy help me unsuccessfully patch the keel. All and all it was a good weekend thanks to Jack and Randy. Next week I will be patching the leak in the keel.
