    The fine tuning continues.
    I had the new mast shortened. It looks much better and GOMER will now go over the road without taking the mast down.
    Replaced a thruhull and it's valve that was stuck for good.
    Alarms on the engine and a new 21st century AP will have her ready for another year.
    Yes, she is still for sale. I have to admit I'll miss her when she goes.
    Many thanks to Tidal Creek Boatworks for the top notch work as always.

    The boat has come along way since you first got her. She looks nice and should be a great boat for many years to come. GLWYS

    Finally installed the high temp alarm sensor switch onto the Cummins this evening. The fitting supplied by Seaboard Marine with the alarm kit would work well for higher HP 6CTA's but the lowly continuous 300hp has a return tube not seen in the Seaboard instructions. This requires a tee and hose barb to adapt the fitting with the sensor into the plumbing. Time ran out before launch and haven't had much time till now.
    Still picking away at projects.

    Way back in '16 around post #48 I asked about gaskets for my Bomar 4810 round hatches. Fishonnelsons helped with the needed answer and I ordered the gasket material. And there it sat.
    26 months later I am all over it!
    I took out the old gasket that was more like half round hard rubber, cleaned the corrosion and old adhesive out of the groove with wire brush, acetone and elbow grease, lathered some rubber cement back in and on the ends of the precut new soft round gasket and laid it in the groove. Set the hatch on there for the night for some set up time and tomorrow I'll adjust my dogs for a nice snug sealed hatch and Robert is you mothers' brother.
    Some times good things take time.
    Pretty nice night on the water.
