Pino is ready to head back out, now that we have a working engine. Tomorrow we'll stock up for a couple of days-worth, and point north!

Here's the whole engine rebuild story!

@neauoire that was such a nice read, despite feeling the frustration through the screen haha, I'm glad that's fixed now :)

@neauoire my pops has worked with stainless daily for 30+ years. He thinks a well-made carbon bit if you can find one and water for cooling might make your drilling life easier next time, god forbid you should ever need this.

@deianeira lesson was, the harder the drillbit, the harder your life will be when it breaks inside the hole..

@neauoire That sounds pretty harrowing overall. Did you try using penetrating oil on the rusted bolts?

The new engine setup has a self-contained cooling loop?

@Miredly Did you try using penetrating oil on the rusted bolts? yeah, buckets of it.

> The new engine setup has a self-contained cooling loop?

Yeah, the water cools down the coolant, but doesn't enter the engine.

@neauoire merveilles.town is the mastodon version of Anarres from The Dispossessed. Congratz on the effort

@neauoire The water on that photo!!!! Is it like slow exposure or something?

@neauoire On dirait un rêve!

Est-ce que c'est une photo qui date de votre traversée épique où l'eau était calme pas de vent pendant des jours?

@neauoire Ah ouais, vos photos étaient surréelles!!
