Making all things better
Marsh Harbor is our best bet for having our mechanicals repaired so we leave Guana and slowly motor the 5 or 6 miles back to Marsh Harbor.
I talk with Marselle at Harbor View Marina on the way over and he hooks me up with a guy named Andrew to fix the Gen, but Andrew can't be there till the next morning.
Pete and I go to work on trying to diagnose the problem and eliminate a few possibilities, but it's still running hot. We call James Knight at Yacht Tech and he has a few ideas, but by this time we're tired, hungry, and want a drink. We throw in the towel and just hope Andrew has a solution.
Andrew shows up right on time, looks at the generator, diagnoses it as a sensor or a thermostat, charges me 80 bucks, and leaves. Still no Generator.
I call Robin at Nordavn who, miraculously, can have the parts to me in a couple of days, but I think about this for a while and come to the conclusion, Andrew is wrong.
Pete and I go back down and start pulling hoses and to make a long story short... we fix it ourselves.
Necessity is quite a motivator.
Now the A/C in our bedroom.
But before we go to work on that we decide on lunch at Wally's. We run into our young friends from the day before while at lunch and invite them over to meet the pups and see our boat.
Tomorrow we head to Green Turtle Cay to see what we find there.
Should be fun.
