I flew back from Yarmouth on Tuesday, IFR at 8000 ft, on top or between layers the whole way. The headwinds were quite variable and stronger than forecast, with the ground speed down to 125 kt at times. 3:21 from take-off to touchdown, over a route of 475 nm.

Today I pulled the cowling to inspect the exhaust system - no cracks. I did spot one small oil weep at the oil screen plug. I’d have to drain the oil to change the crush washer, so I’ll just leave it alone.
