In this episode we voyage north from Morehead City, NC, up Adam's Creek, and into the Neuse River/Pamlico Sound waterway. While traversing the Neuse I have some time to organize my thoughts and to think about what works needs to be done on the boat to equip it to fulfill our dream: 1.) safety issues- having an emergency tiller extension fabricated so that it can reach the cockpit 2.) anchoring & marina life- a windlass and a new anchor base, refrigeration connected into battery bank, water tanks, water heater, et. 3.) traveling and cruising more effectively- lines leading to cockpit for mainsail and reef points, anchoring the baby stay, dinghy motor, etc. Watch and see if I have forgotten anything!

In this episode I practice with the new transmission and the old propellor! However, i really don't like revving up the engine like what is shown. Am I being too delicate? The engine is 35 years old....and only 34 hp. I know diesel engines like to run high....carbon buildup is produced when they don't go all out. However, I just feel like the engine revving is too much. In fact, the engine temp did rise with the intense maneuvering at short bursts of rpm. Is that normal? I guess I need to take the prop off and adjust the pitch. What do you think? Please watch and comment!
