We weren’t in the GS but on the west coast of Mexico when we lost a valve on our 4-108. We said we’re a sailboat right. It took us 4-24 hour days to sail 250 miles north to PV. A couple of times we’d be watching the gps adding distance to our way point with the contrary current. After I got over the fact that we had to rebuild the engine, we delt with it. We weren’t in any danger. We did get a tow once we were in front of Paradise Village, Bandarus Bay.
