Folly Beach - 2106
Dec 23 thru Dec 25
|Our old (Hurth) transmission sits in the shop |
on a shipping pallet next to our old engine.
|A new damper plate has been ordered but not received yet. |
An example of a damper plate is shown above on
another engine--it is the rusted round plate inside
the red housing. It connects the male spline on
the transmission to the engine's flywheel.
|We set the old transmission in its normal operating position |
and filled it with transmission fluid. We are leaving
it sit over the holidays to see if the
red fluid leaks out.
(1) rebuild the existing transmission,
(2) buy a new transmission with different gear ratios and re-prop, or
(3) buy a rebuilt transmission.
|This is a scene looking north on Maybank Highway |
(Route 700) showing how live oaks make a
canopy over the road. Even though it is
late-December, it still looks very
green around this area.
December 24 (Christmas Eve)
It really doesn't seem like Christmas Eve to me. I have to work at getting beyond our boat problems for a couple days. It was sunny and 75 degrees this afternoon--it doesn't seem like Christmas Eve! The following images describe some of the caribbean vibe here in Folly Beach SC.
|Bikes seem to go well with the beach. The colors |
in this image certainly look caribbean.
|This colorful neon sign is on the front door |
of Snapper Jack's Restaurant.
|The Folly Beach Crab Shack is along Center Street.|
