Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.
This post should have come before the previous post but in a fit of air-headedness, I got them reversed. Ces’t la vie.
I got the old zinc’s off, and I took out the old speed-log through Hull. I tried to remove the thru-hull elegantly and properly but it proved to difficult for culture and class. So, I resorted to a small sledge and smashed it out. 😀 When all else fails, get a bigger hammer.
As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.
