The new piece…

DSCF1323Generally we are hands on, repairing anything in Intuition. Don’t forget we installed the engine ourselves and we have done countless fixes and repairs, but sometimes we don’t have all the tools and we can’t carry everything aboard either.

We did not know the effort that it would take to find someone that could machine the new piece in SS 316. It was a challenge never-the-less.  After a few calls searching for a machinist and trying to agree on a price, the piece was done in 2 days and yes, it fits!DSCF1326

We tested it through motoring and sailing and just be completely certain Hector dove in the cold lake again (this time we went to a different beach and anchor far away)  and checked while I moved the tiller from side to side. Perfect!DSCF1330

We had a wonderful weekend and we are happy to be sailing again!knot5
