Had a last despairing joust with the engine. I'm afraid it's a head job and I just don't have the tools out here - valve compressors and the like - so we'll live without it for the time being. Pity.

Dave C, if you are reading this in Falmouth (Izz - cd you ring him pse?) it would be good to be able to get the engine out to fix it because I also want to change the stern gland, which leaks like a sydney shower. If he could find us somewhere to do lift it, I'd be grateful.

One more beasting - at least - to go, over night and tomoz, then maybe time to get out the kites. Keep em crossed. Red and angry hands now just pinkish so something's working.
