Salty 47

< Back to Salty


After a lengthy production delay, the new propeller shaft finally arrived, and I wasted no time checking the measurements to ensure it corresponded to my order.

I looked forward to installing the shaft soon, which would allow me to do the final engine alignment and secure the engine permanently, but first I wanted to paint the raw steel coupling, and over the course of the afternoon I applied primer and paint to the piece.

Total time billed on this job today:  0.5 hours

0600 Weather Observation:
32°, clear.  Forecast for the day:  sunny, high in the mid-60s
