March 31, 2008 - Whangarei

Toxic tomatoes anyone? Ah, so lovely to be back in the boat yard.
Our package of parts arrived today. The timing couldn't have been more perfect. Sten was running out of priority projects that he could work on without those parts. He was about to mount the iPod when the box showed up. It was like Christmas all over again!
No amount of rain was going to stop him from getting that shaft back into the boat now that he had the stern tube and cutlass bearing replacements in hand. The prop is back on now too and the new packing material went in perfectly.

Meanwhile, I grabbed our tax info and got our taxes done and filed. Surprising how much easier they are to do when there is no earned income to report . . . . Unfortunately for us that means we don't get to benefit from Bush's economic stimulus package either. Oh well, we would have just spent the money overseas anyway.
