Backup Engine Fixed

June 29th, 2008 by Walt "The Skipper" Jones

We spent today on a mooring, and were able to fix our “get home” drive (backup engine) and reorganized our living area. We met the nicest couple (Donnie & Marilyn) who saw us, queried “Geraldine”on the internet, hit the website and then contacted us! Donnie helped with the fuses that fixed the get home motor. We presented Donnie with a pound of Peets coffee; our reward for a special encounter. This is the second such presentation of the trip.

We also got the high-frequency email to work, though I wouldn’t claim to be an expert yet. Next is to get the weather fax working. I also want to connect my Macbook to the Raymarine network on the boat; so far it hasn’t worked.

    I know you will meet many people on this journey, but peope who can help you must really be appreciated.

    I’d love to “pop in with a pie”, but will keep in touch as best I can.

    I pray for your success and well being.
