The police have lost the keys for the car. Lol.

Great.

I know where it is now at least! It's incurring heavy storage fees at a towing facility in south auckland.

The officer who dusted it for fingerprints said it was full of makeup and bags so 'maybe I can get some money back from that' (suggesting I should sell these random possessions)

Re: %GcBPmHkBZ

So because the stays are sketch, I'm worried that testing the load carrying weight by hauling 160kg of spiky cast iron engine block high above the deck because I'm too cheap to pay for a haul out is tempting fate

Re: %GcBPmHkBZ

@dominic all of the stays except the forestay are out of tension and butted right up against their tensioner 'max' positions.

The job I really should be working on is cutting back all the stay-cables and fitting new jamming mushroom things into the stays, but I am distracted by forever hurting myself on this rusty mess of engine

but the job I should really really be working on is scraping together enough funds to replace laptop or I'm actually on the path to <<critically low money bad places>> where I start getting Pink Overdue Letters

The idea of someone else actually paying me money to take away the need for me to hurt myself on this engine forever is kinda...tempting?

Re: %GcBPmHkBZ

Okay I think this has maybe beaten me.

The next bits are SO HEAVY - I need a crane to lift them out. I could use the rig but I'm worried that doing so would break the mast (because the stay tension is all wrong)

My laptop also abruptly switched off and I had to sink loads into my van, which means liquidating the last bit of Eth I had left over at a price it is very stupid to sell at.

It is time to accept defeat and sell this boat.

Re: %wKLFmmtcP

it's worth doing for the sheer speed benefit alone
