Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...
Denise, I forgot to thank you for the info on your transmission. It's good to know those things can take a beating; I'm sure I'll be torturing mine, too.
The transmission was really one of the big questionmarks for me. Do I send it off to be tested and possibly rebuilt, or just replaced? I asked about testing it, and the marina said that while they COULD hook it up and see if it "works", there is not guarantee that there isn't something broken/floating free in there that could cause problems later. Given that I still have a 4-5 day trip ahead of me, and that I've already been out of commission about 3 months, I'm not really willing to take the chance on that. That leaves me with rebuilding or replacing, and replacing is a) a lot less expensive than rebuilding, and b) gets me a part with a warranty, which will be highly prized as basically nothing else on my boat has one!
