The whole thing was pretty dumb. I wasn't intending to go mud bogging, just poodleing over to a buddy's place on an ideal Sunday afternoon. Once I started down the mud path I couldn't get back up onto the dry stuff without putting my feet down. I was wearing street shoes and took a gamble to continue straight ahead. I had no idea how deep it would get.

Horrilbe, abrasive mud slurry. The final drive seal is shot. Not sure how the engine's main seal faired: the clutch was pumping the slurry everywhere while it squirted out the starter motor cavity drain port. I shut it off after I saw that. Amazingly, there was zero contamination of the engine or engine oil.

On the plus side, my front brake has never worked better. Worked a treat to deglaze the whole business.

Here's a pic of Tim, who just happened to be 4-wheeling on the same road. I owe Tim a few beers.

That'll take the wet out of your whistle for a while. Sucks.

Sailed with a buddy the other day from Bronte Harbour on Lake Ontario to Port Dover on Lake Erie via the Welland canal. Never seen the canal's workings from the water before and the sights were amazing. Definatley one of the great engineering achievments.

Charlie's boat made the trip kind of memorable, too. The Bernadine is a 95 year old, 86 foot long wooden sardine carrier from Canada's Bay of Fundy on the Atlantic shore. Not a common sight on the Great Lakes. Her 1938 11 liter straight 8 Gardener diesel, making 140 hp at 1400 rpm wasn't a common sound, either.

What a cool way to spend an ideal Sunday in July.
