November 25, 2005-Tank Job

We've been out to Mong Kok a few times this week spending Honkers (Hong Kong dollars, 8 to 1 US dollar) buying parts for the new water tanks we've been putting in.

What a job!

In order to replace the water tanks, which, after 18 years, were leaking a bit too much, we had to dissasemble the whole back of the boat. That took a day in itself. Then the old tanks had to come out. That involved a bit of fiberglass grinding, and a lot of pulling and tugging, and I had to remember which way they would fit going out the hatch, but we did it.

A great stainless welder in Aberdeen made some new tanks for us, stainless this time, not aluminum, and Judy and I took the boat over on Monday to pick them up.

They looked nice.

Then, another dissassembly job in the back of the boat, and finally, the new ones went in.

After two and a half days, we had the job finished.

Its really nice to have new water tanks.
