Let’s Go Back In Time – Stuffing Box
Did you all change your clocks? I know its a lot to expect, and might be the only thing not politicised these days. Well, here, we decided to step back and interrupt the Barn Find Milking of stories and talk about Sweet Pea’s Stuffing box. DONE..Ish.. As you may recall before we so rudely interrupted by baby Chick. We were completing the Stuffing box and bottom repairs on Sweet Pea.
STAY TUNED for more Baby Chick updates.
Very nice box. 😉
Will Baby Chick become the WB ship of state? Talk about click-bait! Weekly progress postings, etc. Fridays could be Chick Day.
Baby Chick on instagram has been INSANE. tripple my regular traffic there. She is Chick Bait
If you are considering changing her name I think “Chick Bait” would be a contender.
Nice stuffing box job.
Leave Baby Chick “As Is” for a year and show it at Reedville, St. Michaels and of course Smith lake boat shows. People LOVE barn finds!!
I have no comment on the phrases “stuffing Box and shafts”. I’m going to leave all that to everyone elses perverted minds.
No doubt that much pains-taking work was required, but that stuffing box is beautiful.
Nice work and great photos! Thank you.
I think such a stuffing box issue would have made another boat owner (without a own slipway) quite nervous for the slipway day rate. How many days in total was Sweet Pea on the railway ?
You saved some money out which can be used for your newest chick 😎
Kinda sad that all this work to fit this important part in the boat won’t be seen. Not like some fancy bright work up on deck. You and all of us know it’s there and of course the boat will stay floating.
Get it floating and take it to Mt. Dora…kinda like the Ramsey Brothers do with there dart
Woops wrong woody boat day open….this was for the 25…
This is what I think of as “Chick Bait”!
So how is it that this gets classified as “Chick Bait”?
Maybe “Click Bait”!
This new world is so confussing sometimes.
May I suggest that you remove your ring when doing this? Good way to lose a finger! We preached it all the time to our mechanics in the Air Force.
