something is heating up

29 October 2010 | Two Harbors, Catalina
As we were motoring into Two Harbors, Catalina I heard a funny squealing noise coming from the cabin of Jennifer K, I asked Mark "what is that" Mark said "I don't hear anything (OK so we are both a little hard of hearing but at least I admit it), I scrambled down the companion way into the cabin I immediately noticed smoke pouring out of the engine compartment, I yelled at Mark "there's smoke down here" the next 5 minutes were full of action as we both were running around trying to figure out what was causing the problem, Mark ran to the bow and dropped the hook in about 50 feet of water, we turned off the engine, which was at 230 degrees, normal is around 180, and decided that the engine was to hot to work on at the moment so we might as well eat lunch (just like men). We've been messing around with the engine for awhile now and Mark (who use to own a diesel repair business) has eliminated a few things, but we still don't know the root of the problem, but we do know that we have a lot of hot water and that we were able to get Jennifer K's engine started...so it looks like we'll be sailing back to San Diego as much as we can.....is it happy hour yet???

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
