I changed the oil on the genset yesterday - a totally routine boat task. Also routine was the absolute cascade of perspiration that I found myself in during the job.
There's the heat of the tropics, and there's the oven-like heat of a generator compartment or an engine room even hours after the generator/engine has been run. Put them together, and you get a puddle of sweat on the cabin sole after the job is done (right).
So, I said to Alisa, I wonder if we'll ever end up in a cold enough place that I'll miss being soaked in sweat every time I do a job like this?
