More Bad News

Vero Beach

Boy oh boy, some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed.

Bud Taplin called. He is back from his trip and ready to fly out here to help install the engine. When talking on the phone the fact came out that we have been on entirely different pages all the time. I had been viewing this engine deal as a turnkey project. Bud is the engine dealer. I thought that I was buying all the engine replacement services from him. I expected Bud to work with me on the entire project, including removal of the old engine. Yesterday it came out that Bud expected me to have removed the old engine, old wiring and everything before he flies out to work on the installation part only.

Ay ay ay. If I had known that we could have moved to Fort Pierce and started the removal more than a week ago.

p.s. Just to finish making my day, my PVC tiller extension disappeared from the dinghy while it was at the dinghy dock yesterday. That's the first pilferage we've experienced yet.
