The Titanic passed by today

The next major engine service should be easier now we’ve been able to collect our latest purchase.  It’s a 1.5 ltr fluid vacuum pump (£12.04 Ebay) which will be used to extract the oil from the gearbox.


The boater moored ahead of us decided to wash his boat giving me a strong feeling of “the guilts” and for some silly reason I had to go out into the full heat of the day to wash and polish the cabin roof.  Fortunately the guilty feeling passed before I did the port side.  Meanwhile youngest son was sent out to BBQ the lunch.  He’s quite a good cook so it’s obviously something he inherited from his mother because I burn water and have been known to poison myself with my own cooking.


Jan bought the steak from Lidl Wigan and its been in the freezer ever since.  We all agreed it was very tasty which is probably why Daniel is taking a photo?.  Jan doesn’t like her photo being taken so I’ll say this is a photo of our new ‘rollup table’ that was on special in Halfords.


Boats have been going past us all day.  It would be the most traffic we’ve seen in several weeks.  I thought the Titanic had been sunk but was assured it cruised past late in the afternoon.


I’ve been beavering away on the Raspberry Pi and have completed 90% of my second project, but I’ll leave that for another post.
