I have the whole story written elsewhere on the web. To make this short. Motor
mounts rusted/broke causing the prop shaft to break the diaphragm
. Old yellow dingy rope
embedded on the prop shaft that already had new growth over it. Water
coming in through the prop shaft seal
. No other damage . We took a long hard sail that day. Probably did the seal in for good. Luckily we were close to land when we noticed the water in our cabins.
We stayed in a hotel
at the Bitter End. TMM said we could get the rest of our stuff off the Shauna Raye in the morning. When we woke up, our yacht and all our stuff on it were gone. We were kinda scared at that point.
***Regardless of who is at fault. Why did TMM abandon us on this island, take our luggage with them, and cancel our charter
for the rest of the days but keep our money
? That is the real amazing part. I never expected that.***
Obviously Palarran knows something about what happened on this charter
. He seems to know details that I've never written. Must be affiliated with TMM. We will be in touch.
