On the Road Again!

Stepping the mast.  

On our way!!
The engine is purring like a kitten again thanks to our new transmission (which, ZF said they did "nothing" to aside from change out some clutches and some seals...hmmmmm) - either way, the tranny must have been the problem* because the dreaded clunking has ceased!  Hip hip, hooray!

We woke up bright and early and motored over to Rich Marine where they stepped our mast...and at a discount!  Thanks RM - we owe ya' one!

Anyway, we are en-route to Lockport, NY - LET THE LOCKING BEGIN PEOPLE!

Love,
Brittany (& Scott)

*Although the fact that there is not a single "A-ha!  That was the issue!" moment, we are a little apprehensive.  ZF claims there was nothing out of the ordinary with the trans, other than the slightly over-warn clutches.  Nothing, they claimed, that would warrant the noise.  Nothing like a problem that somehow got fixed, despite not knowing what exactly was wrong.  Who said sailing around the world would be care-free anyway?  Psh.
