We've left the dock
20 April 2010 | Seattle
As we left the dock, the bow thruster wouldn't retract back into the hull. And the shifter suddenly decided it couldn't do reverse. And the throttle couldn't go below 900 rpm. Well, it looks like we have our first jury rigged repairs to do tomorrow. Who said we wouldn't be busy. I tried so hard to fix everything, but that is a tough task indeed.
We've gone to Paulsbo with our friends Bob and Sherry on Ponderosa. We both needed fuel and rest. The getting away process is very tough indeed. But now we've done it and Karen is taking a nap. Sherry (who is in much better condition than the rest of us...go figure) is fixing dinner tonight. Boy, is it great to have friends.
