...and so, it begins.



 “Let us advance on Chaos and the Dark” 




 Jon discovers some seriously, broken s#*t...


" I used to be on TV?"
This is it how it might have looked PLAYING a guy who fixes his engine...

It actually  looks more like this.... 

...and this....
BLOOD...

(gross)



SWEAT...
...and TEARS.

These last two are for our  fellow, skipper-buddies out there, who've been helping us over the internet...
(Thanks, Terry, Mike, and Dan!)



Well, Jon was going to add a little post, here, about what he's dealing with- technical specifics and all-but just as he sat down for a break and a bite of lunch, a distress call came over channel 16.
Another boat is in trouble, outside the pass, they were trying to make their way into safety, after being hit by two storms, while on their way here from the Marquesas ( its blowing a near gale now). They have just run out of diesel, apparently need some sort of help bleeding the air out of their system and they are able to sail but have no engine and the pass is in quite a state from the high winds and swell...
No one is around in the boatyard, we seem to be the only people living aboard around here, so Jon is currently racing off on a rescue mission.


To be continued....!

  3. Holy shit! Suki you had a flare for he dramatic for sure and you had me reading every word hoping all would turn out and now that I see the pics of grease monkey Jon I am relieved to see the work has begun. Nothing like working on an inboard engine, I'm always amazed what position the body an get into when needed to fix it! Gretal asked me yesterday if I had been reading the blog still and of course I have and now will pass along this latest story and see if she still wants to sail one day :)
