fun title, isnt it.. just dreamed it up as bubba came to lie down next to me for a bit.
ok so i went into cockpit after opening the engine flow seacock. ok. now w eturn on engine..
first partial cranking, we has lift off.. might be a whopping half second after turning key we on and running sweetly and smoothly as purrfect engines are prone to doing.
ok time to check water out exhaust. we has water–good flow.
not spozed to has propwash while in neutral. ok now what is wrong.. we must examine this. so we leave it as is and grab a neighbor as consultant– hell it is obvious the issue– so he confirms it–i enjoy witnesses.
sometimes. when they are necessary.
and then we add tiempo aire to the fone so we can use the damn thing. long story behind this one– coming down to telcel gals terminating my service now 3 times after i had bought it… totalling 900 pesos in their own pocket, not telcels. there is a part of govt for this, and htis is how i am gonna proceed after bringing it to attention of the other telcel managers in another office.
(seems i am not the only one to experience issues. all other gringos have complained of service only lasting 2 weeks when it should have lasted 4. common complaint here in gringo ville…. speels scam to me. and on we go.
and so…. finally i have air time on my fone–i wanted to say hay to momma on her poppas birthday and i wanted to call for dentist appointment–and other reasons, but kept finding fewer and fewer minuets on my fone each time i went to the tel cel office in liverpool mall. i hope any one reading these words will go to the other office not so convenient to gringoville, as you are also being robbed. as there is no money to go hand to hand, these are converting the minutes you buy after you leave, into their own. three times of three, i went in, paid dough got receipt went to the number 24 window i was assigned and had same exact thing happen– receive notice the service was purchased and activated, then about half hour later, in spanish comes the message the service has been terminated. prior messages have been deleted. nothing not even regalo left in fone. they strip yours and take it as theirs. fun. and so i need to use the channels proscribed to report the issue to the feds so no more turistas are molested by this issue.)
back to the point….. so we has prop wash, not spozed to happen and is brand new issue.. ok.
so i call benjamin, the mechanic recommended by a few with whom i have chatted including my friend here. he was here today diagnosed clutch issue, forward clutch. ok is affordable…. he will remove tranny after boat is relocated by tow to the slip in which it is spozed tobe.
nothing ever works when you wanna move–only when boat wants to move.parts break in my sleep–but boat is 40 yrs old and has had a unique history
so monday we move boat via tow from marina to the slip i need to occupy, which was same one i had before dock was repaired…..
ok so next month–bicycle(cheap mountain type–many gears and decent off road tires for sploring and shopping here) and electricos and transmission.
mebbe shoes for my birthday. mebbe.
and i hope no mas de musical chairs here…….
