It has now been one week since the transmission seized up at Kirkfield. I was able to visit the rebuilder in Orillia today and had a look at the mangled gears. Various teeth were broken off (see photo just left of the finger) and jammed the bevel gears, fortunately for us in forward. The parts should be here by Friday which means we could be underway by next Tuesday. It takes a day to reassemble the unit and a day to install it in the boat. The Orillia Rotary Club was honoring high school students they had helped today. Each student gave a little talk on how the club had helped them in choosing a career. On the way back to Bolsover we toured Lagoon City on Lake Simcoe It has dug canals like Florida behind every house and condominium and is very well done. It is large and caters to large boats. I measured 2.1 miles of canal are required to get from one lot to Lake Simcoe.
