DAY 70 - ST. AUGUSTINE TO PALM COVE MARINA, JACKSONVILLE (31.3 mi.)
Thursday, July 13, 2017 ~ It is 9:10 am when we leave the dock and it is hot and humid already. As soon as we leave the marina we have to pass under the Bridge of Lions Bridge which has a vertical clearance height of 20’. The antenna is sideways so we do not have to worry about that and we clear the bridge with two feet to spare. Our passage has many turns and curves which reminds me of Georgia. Palm Cove Marina, Jacksonville is our last marina in Florida and then it will be Georgia. Frans and I are both monitoring the volt meter on both engines. The port says 13 and the starboard says 12. After we dock at about noon, we turn the engines off and try the starboard engine. It does not turn over. Frans checks the breaker but it has not tripped. So on the telephone we are again. No one shows up or calls us on Thursday. Let us see what tomorrow brings.
