Had an easy morning as it had been raining all night and the trees were dropping water on the roof. Never mind, bacon and egg for breakfast, lovely jubbly, that makes up for it.
Took some measurements of various bits of TQs anatomy and then took a walk to Midland
Swindlers Chandlers and bought a new centre rope and a bow line as the old ones were getting frayed. In fact the other day I was pulling on the centre rope and it went twang as another strand broke. Also bought a new chimney stack, twin walled as before, and now it stands proud on our roof top, with its shiny brass rings and fittings. Midland had a 20% off day today, and it was quite busy. Question for you, if they can knock off 20% for one day, why can't they knock it off every day? They'd sell a lot more stock, and make more profit.
We have developed a fuel leak, nothing serious, although it must be stopped, our fuel filter housing has a bleed screw on the top and the sealing washer has seen better days. I've tried in several places this week to get a bonded Dowty seal but I've had no success. I feel a trip in the car coming on tomorrow.
Talking of tomorrow, we've got all day to spruce up TQ and get her ready for the AGM walk through on Sunday. Better get started now!
