Though a fine vessel, of solid construction and noble seaworthiness, she requires a fair amount of attention to her systems and power plant. The unbreakable, the unwavering Ford Lehman 120 inline 6 cylinder has suffered a transmission failure. A failed transmission oil heat exchanger caused water to flood the gear housing thus ceasing the internal shaft bearing. Yesterday was spent removing the tranny components (photos to come). Cpt. Sequoia and Cpt. Ray, with the help of Fred Piasecki, have found a marine mechanic in Massachusetts that will, hopefully, rebuild it to original working condition, and in relatively short order. We are hopeful she will join the fleet in carrying out her mission. Stay tuned.
