When we bought Pino in 2016, it was fitted with a dripless shaft seal. It has worked fine, as its name suggest it doesn't leak. BUT—and that's a big big but— to service the seal you need to disconnect the propeller shaft coupling. Our engine is old, and that coupling is NOT coming apart. Worse, is that we can only ever be out of the water to do this 😵...
Wish we had a traditional stuffing box instead. Easier to service and is cheap to maintain.
"The most tweeted moment in the history of Twitter was during one airing of Castle in the Sky on Japanese TV on August 2, 2013, when fans tweeted the word "balse" (バルス or "barusu") at the exact time that it was said in an important moment of the movie. There was a global peak of 143,199 tweets in one second"

Bam... is this one too late for #theGalley jam? Cooking time... 1 week and 50 minutes. :D
Bikini atoll flag. A reminder of the debt owed...
It was sunk in 1946 as a test, to evaluate the effect of the atomic bomb on ships.
In the photo, USS Saratoga is visible in the left foreground, being lifted out of the water.
I had never seen these photos. It's kind of horrific.... especially knowing how the tests at Bikini Atoll later affected Micronesians.
Did you know dried Dandelion root makes for a good tea but also a great sirup? Tastes great in porridge or as a juice mixed with water. #theGalley
The result of today's experiment. Buckwheat dumplings in a tomato sauce! Very delicious :>... although i need to improve on the tomato sauce a bit ^_^;.
Will post recipe once I make it again.
Grinding some buckwheat for the cooking jam ^_^. It's an ingredient I really like, but that I don't experiment enough with.

Warmer weather means better fruit and veg! Am going to try to plan better this year, to preserve as much as I can while the produce is fresh, cheap and plentiful.
Found some early rhubarb, and made some jam with it!
Finished Yoshi Island yesterday.
What a fun game. Not sure I would have appreciated it as much in my youth. Crazy how they're still introducing new mechanics and enemies in the very last level.
