Off to Boca

We were up bright and early this morning . After setting the boat straight and gathering our gear we climbed in the dingy to row ashore. It was much calmer this morning thank goodness! We were about half way there when a Good Samaritan took pity on us and offered us a tow.

We hopped in the car and headed to BOCA BABY! (Credit to Fran Dresher
I took just a little over an hour to get there. The dealer Sea Sea Marine was located in a business park tucked back off the main roads. We would have never found it by happenstance. The guy that waited on us could not have been any nicer. He took the time to go over the engine with us. He put it in a bucket of water insured it started and went into gear. In addition to the engine we needed the proper hoses, gas tank and oils. He made sure we had everything we needed to be good to go when we got back to the marina. It was a good experience albeit a wallet lightening one!

Scott had suggested we stop at the condo on our return and take showers. We were going right through Boynton on our way. Boca is two towns south. Not one to turn down a chance to shower with copious amounts of water I was all for the idea! We grabbed some lunch to have while we were there as well.

We returned to the marina, grabbed a dock cart and unloaded the motor and gear. The installation went remarkably well and by 3 PM we were back aboard Light Reach. The new motor is quiet. Fingers crossed it gives us years of trouble free service.

The picture is of the place where we got the motor. It's a Mom, Pop and son operation. Some of the best kind.

Scott and Sally met in college, married and lived the average dirt dweller life for years always somewhere near the water. We fell in love with sailing in the early 90's. Summer of 2014 we both retired and became full time cruisers. [...]
