Been That Kind of Year

06 June 2012 | Marsh Harbor
Well the trip over from Royal Island/Spanish Well was pretty uneventful. Until we ran out of fuel about 35 miles out. evidently the engine with the injector pump problem is using more fuel than we figure. We should have still had 10 gallons of fuel left. But luckily another boat "SV Silver Girl" heaved to and allowed us to catch up to them. Then we passed fuel over in a 5 gal can. Which was just a hoot in 3-5 ft seas and us with just sails for power. Robert did a wonderful job being towed by his wife diane in thier dingy and passing it up to us!!!!!!!!!!
So we get to Marsh Harbor the next day and life is good. We have wifi, resturants, and grocery store. But then the sun goes away again, and Diane is still gimped up from the encounter with the "iron Shore". But I can handle it and head for the stores.
Well then Friday night 6-3 we got struck by lightning. We wake up to no VHF antenna, no auto helm, no gps, no VHF, etc. etc. But what the hell comes with owning a boat with a mast.
So we decide to start heading back and start the procedure of getting stuff fixed. Well we decide to start back in short hops, but can't cross over until Monday. Well we make it 15 miles and another squall with 50 knots of wind, and a water spout comes in, and you guessed it, WE GET STRUCK AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now the equipment that was not hurt, is now toast for sure. We will be waiting for enough time without lightning to head home!!!!!!!!!!! :)
