Happy New Year
02 January 2018 | Fort Pierce City Marina
Cold windy and rainy
We made it back to Fort Pierce late on the 29th. The boat was good.On Saturday I dove overboard to check the GORI propellers. I made sure that they were moving freely. I suspect that the starboard engine (Ricky) was stuck in overdrive which means the engine would not reach its rated 3600 RPM and was running harder and hotter that the port engine. On our next leg I'll see if that was the problem or not when I put the engines under load. Both oil samples came back with normal results which is good. We decided to go to the Citrus bowl and root for ND. We used our Marriott points for a hotel in Orlando. We brought in the new year with fireworks and the Citrus bowl. The weather was horiable. As it turned out I got the flu on New Years and had to leave the game early. It was an awesome game. We made it back to Fort Pierce today. Weather was the coldest in decades. 30Knots from the east and near freeing temperatures at night.
