    i had to Google oar ....

    now we have a mistery .... on the Maxprop ,with the mooring line blocked, one blade was out of alignement. I demounted the propellor and ,Lucky, do not find anything wrong with the gears inside ( forward/reverse) .... as it would have jumped one thoot ?? Or i had it wrong aligned at the time of construction ?? suspect the latest as that side gived more "vibration" in the boat than the other side from the beginning. Let's hope that is the reason. Couldn't remount it as the ship yard closed at 5:30 pm .
    Tomorrow we will see.

    Damned, that gives me retard on the painting job..... normaly boat should be in the water by Friday ( yard closed on saterday ) and we rented a appartment till saterday... one may not live aboard at the yard.....

    o well, in worst case it will be hotel for a few days.

    That looks great Barry but you really don't expect us to believe that you painted it with that small roller do you.

    WaffleHead wearing knee pads seems appropriate.

    And the boat looks great Norbert.

    I certainly approve of you incorporating that roll bar in your design.

    It's shows that you take safety seriously, as do I.

    Like I always say "safety is fine, if you've got the time"!

    For you WaffleHead it will only be one happy day, the day you sell it since you built it.

    OK, back to cars ... this weekend we do a 2 days rally , one of the biggest "regularitys" in Belgium.... about 400 miles.

    The BMW CS is ready... got a extra wheel sensor besides GPS ,so we can calibrate if necessary , remounted my Hella lights as LED's are not allowed . ( alot of night driving )
    Perhaps better so , the LED's are so good that after a special stage , when on drives again with the OEM lights , you don't see a thing . Diffference is to great .

    Also a second Terratrip tripmaster on my drivers side so i can handle the inputs "average speed" and my copilot can concentrate on the maps....

    i can't wait.... will be fun !
