Water in the Engine–Video

April 2, 2018

Hobart, Tasmania

It’s March 13. We’re a week from Hobart–if I can keep Mo moving. But at latitude 44S, we’re encountering light winds. I decide to motor, but five minutes after I start the engine, it dies.

Great, what now? …

(Spoiler: my sincerest thanks to Gerd Marggraff for helping me get the engine going again. I read all the pertinent parts of my Calder book, but Gerd’s experience and expertize turned out to be the more valuable.)

  1. Surely not all the water coming in the window stayed in the boat – maybe the key “drained” out the window??? Hope you get a new key made in Hobart and sail away with a spare! Your teeth looked fine. Enjoy your land time!
