Winsome- Almost...!

The Yankee 30, Winsome, is getting closer and closer to being launch ready. The diesel runs. the water systems work. The toilet flushes and the holding tank is secure. Some pictures from the "in-progress" phases follow.

The holding tank set up

The holding tank set up

pressure water pump from forward FW tank to head. This was underwater for a year or so and runs!

Wiring in the port run, many rusted terminals. But... electrics seem to work.

Old foot pump and new. Crazy aluminum L construction holds the pump to the bulkhead. Boy, was that a bear to wrestle off.

Winsome is beautiful.
And she sails like a dream.

Proof the FW pump works to forward head.

After the aluminum contraption with foot pump was removed.

Newly refurbished forward hatch installed. Replaced one side of teak, vent, and all the fastenings.

Forward hatch, again.

Inside of forward hatch. Note rain drops. It has rained since Columbus Day 2016 except when it snowed. No worried, leaks, if any, are revealed.

The SeaLand Tank Master holding tank monitor assembly. This thing doesn't screw together in any way that resembles "normal." Seems tight now.

The hatch board were in a very distressed state and Elizabeth recovered their beauty.

Hatch boards again.

Galley FW pumping... pumping... pumping

Galley FW flowing. The faucet leaks at the base.
