Another beautiful morning in Oyster Bay. Everybody slept well last night, maybe the drinks at the Irish pub helped. Richard, Doris and I had breakfast on board and planned the day ahead. Its Monday morning and a google search, a couple of phone calls, revealed a compatible FRAM filter cartridge available in Blenheim.
So off we set again to Blenheim to pick up the filter. With filter in hand Richard and I returned to Truce and fitted it then tested the engine. All seems to be running well now and I am happy that I can see the fuel moving through the filter bowl. The real test will be on a long engine run but I am confident we have fixed the problem.
This evening my Son, Steven arrived on the Interisland ferry from Wellington. He has come over from Melbourne for a holiday and will join me on Truce for a few days.
Steven and I arrived back on Truce early evening. Richard and Doris are staying in Picton for a few days.
Tomorrow Steven and I are going to sail Truce around from Port Underwood to Picton or Waikawa.
