On the Water Again

We returned to the Goose last Thursday; boy is it cold! Rich’s first job was to clean the fouled prop. The water was about 48 degrees and the captain was not happy to go swimming.

Dressed for the challenge, Rich heads to the water. He really could use some diving gloves. He was happy to report that the hookah worked great.

After only one day of sailing the starter failed to work and Rich had to replace it with our spare. We also discovered that the heater system won’t stay running; it has to be restarted almost every time. Oh well, it’s a boat and something has to be broken or life just wouldn’t be right.

  1. Hi Rich-just wanted to say “Hi” and tell you that I enjoy following your travels. Maybe I will see you in Punta Gorda along with Russ if all goes well. Safe sailing.
