An account of the building of the 73' schooner, Lena Blanche.

As you can see the engines are just about completed. We completely rebuilt them from the crank to the valves. We got amazing help for the technical stuff from Les MacLean whose knowledge about Detroit Diesels is vast. Thank you, Les. All that's left to do is a little plumbing from the heat exchangers to the raw water pumps.
We'll have a run in period for the engines before they are installed in the vessel to make sure everything is as it should be and then they'll await installment.
