What the heck is Wayne been doing????
Hanging out in the Heart Hospital of Houston(4 times in 90 days). But, I am still here, darn it!! Ha!! There are a few outside things going on that have slowed me down also. But, fans, while we waited, the screw got straighten,trued,resanded, and repainted.
The old pump jet base was gradually cut away, and resanded the stern down to pre-install condition.
I then slid the ouput shaft through the bearing in the hull, to insure alingment, and free turning (especially since the bearing is already fixed).
Using the bearing as a guide, I CAed the new pumpjet on.
I did, of course, clean up the inside of the new pump jet with files, and evercoated any irregularities and smoothed out. Why? For lower acoustical signature, of course!!!
