Thanks!

Becalmed it was. Very much so. The diesel sprung a leak where one of the fuel lines feeds the injector. Leaked probably two gallons into the bilge before I caught it. I'm just glad that it happened during the shakedown instead of when we might have really needed it some time in the south Pacific. But that's what shakedowns are for...
