Crappy conversation with friends
What do charter crews talk about when they get together? Well yesterday, when we shared a couple beers with our friend Steve from Alternate Latitude, the conversation zoomed right in to head repair. Imagine that!
In one of my pre-Leopard-acquisition posts, I wrote about how our friend Kirk suggested that we carry at least one (well, really he said 3) macerator pump assemblies to make repairs on our boat’s electric heads. As luck would have it, one of those pumps gave up the ghost before we even got off the dock! In my mind this was fortunate in that a) the Moorings replaced it free of charge and b) I got to speak to the guy who replaced it about what was involved with the process.
Note: I would have watched him fix it but cramming two guys into the head while work is being done would have been a tad… intimate.
This, of course, is only one of a thousand jobs that we’ll be involved with on this boat over the coming months. It’s a good thing I enjoy puzzles because at present, this boat is like one giant expensive Rubik’s Cube to me.
This works on boats too, right?
