Thanks Charles! Engine now all re-connected, I hope, and sounds good. Everything seems to work as originally intended and I've just put in the last 4 tiny screws that secure the hinges of the engine box. Thanks to all of you with acheing appendages - time to relax them a bit until Sunday, when we will leave, AGW.
Second round with Dra. Bruno this afternoon and with luck the final stoush at 10.00 aturday. Meantime, putting the boat back together and a bit of exploring - I'm off to the National Archives tomorrow if I can work the subway system. That's where the remaining records of the C15 voyages are kept - all that's left after the 1755 fire and earthquake.
