Got to the yard with Alan about 0930. Long natter with Paul who runs the yard. Then on with the jobs. Greased steering mechanism. Locking device seized. Left to let oil soak in. Replaced impeller. No problems. Then onto engine anode. Big problem. Old one disintegrated in block but seems to have gone very hard. Very inaccessible. 4 hours of chipping and drilling very little progress. Exhaust pipe in the way. Gave up. Went for food. Dropped key for new padlock in the drink. Locked out of boat. Had to break back in! Fell over a bollard coming out of Indian. Bed.
