Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

Got the shaft back from the metal sprayers today. Looking good all trued up. Installed -goes in from inside to out.New gland packing on inside-cutlass bearing outside not too bad and reinstalled the outer bearing with 3 new bronze lag bolts. Must check tomorrow on prop which is getting trued up and ballanced.
Went to Auckland today to pick up the EMCO-STAR  more about that later!
Also picked up the 2 burner gas cooktop and 12v water pump to pump up to the 60l header tank.
Auckland is 2hours south of here fyi.
