Going to have plenty of spares. Sadly, the PO is in cancer treatment in Ark., having a tough time ,but the broker/marina owner has been taking care of it the past couple of years. He's going to walk me through the systems before we leave. The nav stuff I'm very familiar with. I'm bringing a full legal pad to take notes of all the things I need to do to it to make it my own.LOL I have a friend crewing for me that retired from Edison Swest about 4 yrs ago. He was the lead captain and sea trial supervisor for the company. He'll probably take all day just to inspect things.HeHe But, that's not a bad thing.

Well, had to RESET. On my trip back from Niceville, Fl. broke down in Pascagoula, Ms. Towed to the inner harbor where we where greeted at the dock by a resident (Les) across the street from the Pascagoula City Marina. Helped us dock and gave us a few numbers for parts/mechanic. Of course this was the Saturday evening before Easter. Could not find a part (circulation pump). Nobody open until Monday. No parts in Ms, La, or Ala. I will have the old one that I took off rebuilt for a spare.LOL Finally ran out of time and had to rent a car and drive home (3 1/2 hrs). Had to get on a cruise ship Weds. in San Diego, so I ran out of time. Got all the parts overnighted and my crew went down the next Friday and made the repairs. Thanks to Mary at Action Master Marine in Norfolk, Va. A great parts person, by the way. Now we're rebooted and will start again tomorrow. Boy, by the time we get back home, I think I'll know the boat very well.

Well, it looks like good weather for the next week or so. Considering the disastrous weather last weekend and earlier this week maybe that pump did you a favor by cutting out!
Keep us posted, pls.

dimer2 and STEVE,
Can't thank ya'll enough for all the help. Steve (owner of Gumbo, Houma, La.) hauled me all over Houma, La. getting belts and groceries and "dimer2" (Blue and Michelle) for the tow(I saved about a pint of fuel.LOL) and gave me a huge battery(which I tried to pay for but they would have non of it.) and bought me some jumper cables. Which I forgot to pay Blue for. Long story.LOL We made it back to my slip at 3:30am today. Ran all night with the full moon and favorable wind and current. Made some great memories and had a ton of laughs. The people that I met along the way where great. Now I can get down to making her my own.

ddalme, you and your motely crew more than made up for the tow, in entertainment value. The $100 you gave me for not posting the whole and true story, covered the battery, but you owe me big time for those $9.99 jumper cables you stole.


Glad you made it home safely!! We have two more days.....
