DAY 82 - CHARLESTON CITY MARINA
Tuesday, July 25, 2017 ~ The mechanic is on board at 9:00 am with a new starter. It is a pretty impressive piece of equipment. He has the new one installed by 10:00 am. We start the engines, take the power off, untie the boat and I give the captain the all clear. Frans tries his thrusters and they do not work. I retie the boat and Frans calls Ron the mechanic who is not far away yet to come and take a look. This is not his specialty and he cannot figure it out. This all takes more time and now we cannot do the run we wanted to do to Georgetown. So we decide to stay another night. There is a marine repair office at the marina and at 2:00 pm we get someone to look at it. It was a very simple fix. A toggle switch which we never touch was some how moved into the off position. Problem solved. We are good to go on Wednesday.
