ENGINE FIXED AND STEVEN ARRIVES

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.
