"Bob Porter" was one of the "Bobs" that Peter had his "meeting with the Bobs" with. Good catch!

It's great that he found a replacement out in the Pacific, without ordering it and waiting for it.

Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

Thanks! But not really brilliance - Doug and I had built the bilge pumping systems including the hoses, and I had replaced all the hoses associated with the engine - fuel and raw water. I was familiar with all the the hoses and I knew they were both the same inside diameter. It shows the importance of being completely familiar with your systems!

Those hose clamps come in handy - nice to have a box of various sizes. We used black rubber hose on Serenity.
