Well our boat
made it safely to Havre de Grace but when theynlifted her off the truck there was an accident
and the pop shaft was bent so they were not able to put her in the water
. So instead of being underway Wednesday we probably will be just getting her in the water
. The marina has been great and is repairing the shaft for us, but it is a big job since they had to take the rudder
off to remove them prop.
has been beautiful and I wish we could be taking advantage of it with a shakedown trip and get underway but we will probably not start our journey through the Chesapeake and down the ICW
till the weekend.
At least the boat
being on the hard
gave us a chance to paint
and polish her. Seems like every time we turn around though there is something else we should do. The marina suggested having a company come and clean the diesel tanks
but they can't do it this week and to come here from Annapolis
they want $175 so don't think we can have that done before we head
off. We are just going to get going and if the engine fuel
keeps clogging the filters we will stop in Annapolis
and have it done at least save the travel fee. Or does anyone have any other ideas of how to maybe clean the tanks
since they have been sitting for 2 years, they had stabilizer in it but probably has sat too long for it to be effective.
So many boats have left the marina already I hope we are not leaving too late.
