This morning we were up bright and early to take the boat across the cut to Streethay Wharf. An engineer came to look at the problem and the lack of room to tighten the offending crank pulley nut up. Three hours later the crank pulley nut was tightened, locktite was used and grub screws used to keep the nut in place. The engine sounds completely different.....back to it's normal sound.
So now we are slowly going towards Cox's at Atherstone, where the Travel Power is being repaired and is hopefully ready on Tuesday or Wednesday before I run out of knickers! The washing is accumulating as we need the Travel Power to run the washing machine.Still a hairy boat......can't use the Dyson either.
