Motor ran all of 3 minutes to get her in the slip. It's nice to finally be back on the water. Hip surgery went exceptionally well. I'm probably at 90-95% now. (was probably 35-40% before surgery). Boat is clean, prepped, and we're ready for some overnighting. See you all on the water!
Glad your surgery was successful. Mine happened last June and I am better for it

If you have a diesel, it’s best to run them at least 10 minutes, even if you can sail back to your dock.
