Apr. 27, 2010---Since there are 604 hours on the 315 HP Yanmar diesel engines, we decided to change out the impellers in the sea water pumps before starting this boating season. The task involved taking the pumps apart to access the impellers. We had the impellers and o-rings on hand but found a gasket needed. Ordered gaskets from Laborde Products in Covington, LA.

Bird houses near the lock provide nesting places for Purple Martins. These birds are important in the area as they feed on pesky insects.

John C. Stennis Lock and Dam on the right is located on the TomBigBee Waterway at Columbus,MS.
