Damaged Bow Thruster: Still Waiting….





As you see, the tunnel is in, the props (before they were primed or painted with anti-fouling) are set in place, and we’re ready for the new thruster motor to arrive to take the place of the damaged one above. I do hope we won’t have to warn folk not to use the marine supplier of said damaged thruster — who had told us it would be shipped by truck, but who tossed it into a flimsy box and sent it UPS. I hope that very soon the new thruster (first ordered on December 30) will arrive so that SV can get back in the water before that new bottom paint gets so old that we have to redo it.

If this isn’t an exercise in patience, I don’t know what is. Smiling here. Thinking happy thoughts. Glad Someone has our back. Glory!
