Water, water everywhere and every drop to drink

It's true. We got the forward water tanks installed along with the new high-output alternator. We now have eighty-six (?) gallons of water in the forward water tanks and about thirty gallons in the back tank.

The tanks went in without too many glitches. We were missing one part and that was it! It was amazing! It only took half of an afternoon! And luckily the tanks arrived with all the correct fittings.

The alternator went in with a little more difficulty. My Dad got all the components installed within a day but...he had difficulty finding the right-sized belt. It took him the total of about a half a day and four or five trips to the store to get the right one! The store is quite a distance away. We're at St. Johns Yacht harbor (SJYH) on Johns Island near Maybank Hwy.

But speaking of the saying "Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink." It's true. Even besides the fact that you can't drink salt water, the water here is terrible. Absolutely terrible. When we flush our heads (not our own personal heads, but the bathroom head!) we can't tell if the water that we flush down is recycling and coming back up into the bowl! The water is brown and contains a lot of silt. SJYH advertises that their water is their pride, but I don't know where that comes from!

We are getting ready to install the SSB now. In another week or so we should have all the parts for it.

The local boat I mentioned in the blog "Completion" is called Illyria. She is a J-120. Anyhow, we are doing Charleston Race Week(end) on her. (The reason I called it Race 'Weekend' is because it's only Fri., Sat., and Sun.) It should be fun.
