Batteries/starter/oh boy!

Back on the 26th of April we discovered that our port engine would not start. That was the beginning of a series of small problems. We finally got the two batteries replaced at great expense, got ready to move the boat and when we tried to start the port engine nothing happened. Oh boy, now what?!! So, we called the "boat fixer" again. By now we are getting very well acquainted with him. He discovered that our starter looked a little suspect. He pulled that, took it to his shop and found that it was shot. He was able to rebuild it and viola...the port engine works!

We got the boat moved, actually before we got the engine started. That was interesting. Wes tied a heavy line to the bow, got some guys to help him (thank goodness) and they were able to manuver it around the end of the dock and over to the other side. Simple, actually, once everything got underway. Not something I'd want to do everyday, but interesting.
