Over the past 3 months I have worked in the yard lifting, digging, planting, building, and worked on all the boats. I see it as a way to get exercise and keep the old heart rate up in some sort of odd way. And it feels great. I have come to realize that sitting in meetings all day long aint a good thing for an old body, or brain, or anything. But my mind can not stand the routine of a workout. I need to be doing something productive with anything I do.
So the other day, the tach stopped working on Stinky. What a pile of crap, come on 90 years later it stops! So I called VanNess Engineering to order a new Tach cable. And two days later a brand new Cable showed up. They make them in case you need one.
So, I think, this should be an easy job, taking it out was easy. OH! NOOOOOOOO! It’s like taking a boat apart is easy, putting it back together is an entirely new adventure. And working in a 16 foot enclosed boat on a boat lift adds to the fun for sure.
The tricky part is getting key holes to line up while standing above it all. And threading it on the Engine. 1 hr later and two Tylenol, I had stretched muscles I didn’t know I had, including the brain muscles. And although felt like I had been beaten up felt like I had accomplished something while stretching myself, physically and spiritually. All that from replacing a tach cable.
