Unhappy I went out for the 2nd to the last sail Sunday

Turns out, Oh Joy's season is over after the old Perkins threw a rod. We started out on a nice hull speed close reach up to the San Juan Channel on the way to Friday Harbor:

YouTube - Hull speed close reach

We ran into a 6 knot current through the rocks with no wind and had to fire up the Perkins to stay off the real estate. As you can hear, the engine was going South fast. It didn't sound like this earlier.

YouTube - Nasty chop with a sick engine

Later, it ended up locking tight as we dodge more rocks after midnight trying to get home. Vessel Assist to the rescue once again. Now I have to figure out how to get through Deception Pass and into Maritime Services at LaConner with no engine in a 5 knot cross current. It oughta be fun.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Dieing? It's toast! It went calunkita, calunkita, calunkita, CLUNK! Now I get to try my hand at rebuilding a Perkins 4-108M, if it's not totally trashed. Ah well, I've rebuilt plenty of other engines before. All else fails, I can find a used one out of a salvage boat to work with.

Charlie:

I'm headed up to Hope Island on Saturday, and will continue on to Bellingham on Sunday via LaConner.

Let me know if I can help... Best to use my work email...

Let me know, if not other options open up, or schedule conflicts get in the way deal - I can sail up and motor you where you need to be...I'll keep my schedule open for you, the only thing I do is the Thursday night races - otherwise, just gimme a call and we'll head up.
