Feeling a bit nervous...

Ok, the time has come - can't put it off any longer - tomorrow Lotus comes out of the water for antifoul, insurance survey, and a couple of other jobs: e.g. replacement of raw water seacock, impeller, and repack of the stuffing box with that teflon impregnated packing. It is just over 3 years since she went in, and for sure the zincs will be need replacing as well, and I will be very interested to see how the Prop-speed has lasted, as it is the first time I have had that put on. I will take pics before the pressure clean, no matter how horrible, and after shots as well, of course, when ready to go back in, so you will all be able to judge for yourselves.
