Emeraude - Cal 2-27 gets repowered

After having intermittent reverse gear for quite a few seasons, Ray Leonard replaced the worn transmission on his Farymann A-30, German made diesel engine. It was a beautiful spring day at Lake Breeze Marina, and things went well as the engine was hoisted using a come-a-long attached to the boom. Within a couple hours the engine was fastened to the stringers and the shaft was coupled back together.

Emeraude will be back out for another season of racing.
