We heard a suspicious knocking we didnt like from the engine. So we pulled into Ross Marine south of Charleston this morning and will have them have a listen and possibly pull the boat out of the water ARGGGGG!! to fix it. Lots of reasons why that is not good but mostly because we have 110v fridge and freezer FILLED with food...both sides. Its VERY well insulated but things will start to thaw after about 24 hours. We are waiting for 'Carlos' now........we are able to use the generator while we are in the water for the fridge, but its water cooled so.........not when it is out of the water.
They have this huge contraption that lifts boats, even big ones like ours (and bigger) out of the water so they can fix the things that can not be fixed while they are in the water. Anyway we may have to lift it out, work on it, then put it back in......geeeesh and then out again. We are treating it like any other problem....everything is an adventure. At least its not going to be in the 90's today.
