Re: Huon Seal - Portland Vic.
It sounds like lots of fun. I missed your earlier post whilst I was "away", but we had the same issue with a coupling on Grantala. We ended up drilling out the securing bolts with a special cobalt drill bit (about $80) and used a grease-filled puller that exerts a force of about 10 tons IIRC. We replaced that coupling (my friendly engineer whipped one up on his lathe / mill)
Got any photos of the engine work yet?
Carpe the living sh!t out of the Diem
I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"
