dillybar is on a distinguished road
Denise, winds were calm, we were in 4+ knots of current going the wrong way and we were in a busy shipping channel 400 yrds across. Sailing was not an option. I did consider launching the dingy with it's 9.9 if the motor quit , and it would have moved us laterally to an anchor spot but not back where we needed to go against the current. When I found we could make headway with the motor (1 knot) we stayed with that.
Faster, the injector info I will tuck away on the hard drive for future use, thanks.
