Refit

Over the last several weeks I have been doing some major work on Sylph, getting her ready for her next major voyage.  Sylph now has a nice new shiny red engine.  The mast is out and being painted. Hopefully it will all be finished within a couple of weeks.
 
The old engine, ready to go to the knacker’s yard:

All is well.
