A little bit of weather and a cranky, actually not cranking, bowthruster will keep us here until Friday morning. While pulling into the fuel dock yesterday in a building breeze, the bowthruster decided to quit. We put some diesel in the tanks and settled in at Calvert Marine's transient dock for the evening expecting to leave early this morning to beat the forecast. Unfortunately the front is moving in faster than predicted so we decided to take a pass on the anticipated t-storms and start our post-commissioning relaxation early. With extra time on my hands, I looked into the thruster problem and found one of the battery terminals completely melted off. Obviously, something is not cricket there and since I am generally considered a hazard around electrical thingies, a pro is coming in the morning to check out the charging system and install a new battery. So, after giving PRIM a much needed bath today, I'm on schedule for a nap. Tough duty. We will still get to Fishing Bay for the BBQ and some of Charles's fabulous home-grown tomatos.
