Montego Bay; 20th March 2014
We have just ordered the new water pump from England. If the Jamaican customs don’t muck around we will have it sometime next week. We have also found a mechanic who claims to be a Perkins expert to do the job. (the first guy that came said that it was too involved for him) It requires the removal of the timing belt, If any of the cogs move after belt removal we will be in deep s...t. It is quite an involved process so I would rather someone else do the job. We only hope that he is the right man for the job. We have found that there are a lot of people in the Caribbean walking around with a screwdriver in their hand claiming to be a mechanic when in fact they don’t know s…t from clay. The dock master here at the yacht club has recommended him so we think that he should be all right. Just the same we will be watching.
