What a difference a week makes.

This time last week Keith was in hospital after another back problem, but this weekend he was down in the back cabin refitting our gearbox.

It is always nice to watch a man at work.

Our gearbox was returned today, with all new seals and gaskets fitted. Rob of Kate Boats fitted it to it's mounting bracket, and Keith reconnected the 2 propshafts, the control linkage and the 2 oil cooling pipes. Hopefully we should have a oil leak free cruise this year. What a difference a week makes though. This time last week Keith was in hospital in agony and unable to move without being caused pain.

Whilst Keith and Rob sorted the gearbox out, I was out helping a friend to move a table from her boat to her house. I arrived back to make Keith a coffee, as Rob had done his bit.

Having done the gearbox he is looking a little uncomfortable, but he can now put his feet up and watch the 6 nations...... Come on Ireland.
