Christina II Latest News

Christina II is progressing slowly as we fix one think another hits us.  After finding the gearbox issues to be nothing more than a filter clean required, which got it working perfectly it did however through up a blown seal in the gearbox pump.  The engine is now unbolted and moved forward to let us get the box out to replace the 6.50 seal, nothing is every easy, even the filter clean required dismantling the engine room floor to gain access.  A 10 min job ended up taking 4 hrs, it is now modified to allow access.  Hope to have the engine back in, in 2 weeks.  The prop is a K3 29 X 19 being pushed through a 2.1:1 box by a 110hp Perkins 6.354 she should go well with this combination, hopefully we'll find out soon.
