Day 21 Wednesday June 1 Bolsover

Transmission repairBreakfast was at Twigs, a small restaurant beside the marina. Dave, the owner, spent a lot of time to tell me about the new water regulations that became effective today. He has to spend $3,000 per year on water testing. This is a result of a bad water situation in one Ontario town where the water utility was cheating on tests. Clearly the province is over-reacting. In spite of this Dave does serve a good breakfast. Ted came at 9:00AM to remove the transmission. He is the kind of mechanic that plans every move first. Consequently it went well and the transmission was ready to be hauled by 11:30AM lunch time. Two stands were set up on either side of the engine room with a steel shaft resting on their tops. A chain haul was fastened around the transmission and it was hoisted up on to a custom built for the job plywood platform. The platform was slide over to the door and then two men hauled it through the door and down the deck to the gap in the hand rail. Ted drove it to the re-builder in Orillia. Tomorrow we will learn about how long it will take to fix. Putting it back will be much easier as all the equipment is now in place.
