The Engine (December 30, 2013)

We had someone else listen to the engine and he agrees with Matt and the mechanic. There is something going on – it may be that the prop jammed and twisted when the old engine violently cut off last month. So … there is a diver coming tomorrow morning to look at it. Matt spoke to the realtor and there is no issue with us staying longer. I was ready and willing to move back onto the boat but perhaps Matt put it best, “I don’t want to move onto the boat until we’re ready to go. It’s too much like camping in the winter.” “Yes,” I said. “But without the campfire and marshmallows.” Therefore, we are celebrating New Year’s Eve in comfort and warmth!
