After nine, yes NINE, weeks at the machine shop the Wayward Westerbeke has returned home. It certainly wasn't the machine shop's fault because they did their work in about two and a half weeks; one week to figure out how much to hone the cylinders so we could order the proper parts, and a week and a half to actually do the work after the parts arrived.
The other six weeks were spent waiting for parts from Westerbeke. We received abysmal service from them and we wouldn't recommend buying Westerbeke products to anyone ever.
Our time here hasn't been wasted though. We've kept busy varnishing things, cleaning things, installing solar panels, and taking a vacation. And Stuart is a nice place to be "stuck" if one has to be stuck in Florida.
The best part is being at Sunset Bay Marina, where beautiful sunsets are guaranteed every night.
