    I recieved new "loaded" hubs yesterday from Amazon. Poor packaging is an understatement. Hub in one layer of bubble wrap. Hub cap and 5 lug nuts in one layer of bubble wrap. Bearings and seals stacked ....in one layer of bubble wrap. All three bundles were tossed in a bubble wrap nailer envelope. 3 of the 4 bearing cages were mashed, both seals destroyed. Both assemblies are going back.

    I could have bought local [I will now] the same grade import assemblies for $1/each more than Amazon. I just do not have time to go pick them up...but I guess I will make time.

    Looks like my little tractor is a parade machine today... was supposed to be running a 1010, 40, & M Deere but the 1010 is on the fritz. Neighbor told the planners he would have 3 antique tractors...and mine is over 30 years old. Guess I better give it a bath real quick....

    Have a good trip Robin. I'm going to make it to watch those boats run some day. Enjoy the island time.

    Finally got my new seats yesterday for my vessel. I am sure they will help add a finishing touch as I complete it. They are nothing special, just Springfield Seafarer seats. They are what she came with 30 years ago so she will get the same. Anything bigger in a small cockpit would crowd it. [​IMG]

    Went to the Lobsta boat races last Sunday.......perfect weather.....33 races....we anchored right at the finish line in behind the barge with the judges and radar times keepers. That gave us a perfect view of the finishes but equally as important, the big barge acted as a breakwater to shelter us somewhat from all the crazy bike wakes produced by these big fast boats. As usual Cameron Crawford's, not real pretty Wild Wild West was the fastest boat afloat....26 footer with his 1150 hoss V12 Isota diesel with twin turbos. Excellent day of racing.....no crashes and only one boat had to be towed off the course due to motor 'splosion.
