Repairs in exotic places... we must be cruising!

OK,  Alameda is not exactly "exotic" (but it is a nice,  friendly and relaxed place).

We have done a number of fixes/improvements,  but we are still shut down trying to figure out/repair our hydraulic steering.  (Rebuilt helm pump but slipping still a problem.  Now will rebuild ram/cylinder. Fingers crossed.)

No idea when we will be done.

  1. Sorry for your mechanical woes. We ve had so many that we decided to go with wind vane steering. Hopefully the lack of electrical power requirements will mean less trouble. Good luck on your repair.

  2. When are you all going to be in San Diego ? It's 72 degrees here with no relief in sight
