A Couple Week Pitstop for Engine Repairs

03 June 2022 | Ketchican, Alaska
George Stonecliffe
As we arrived in Ketchican, sailing in light winds with no auxiliary engine, we are nestled into a dock at North Bar Harbor that is used by purse seiners to mend their fish nets. Our overriding goal is to get the engine fixed, and ready for further service. A Good Samaritan who was mending his nets, came aboard and assisted in purging the air out of the engine. This took at least a couple hours. It may have been more. We successfully burned up our starter motor after cranking over the engine so much. But luckily we had a spare (and the local NAPA store had another to buy for backup). The Good Samaritan recommended a local mechanic with good skills. He'll be here Monday, June 6th. Yesssss!
