Engine Trouble

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

We pulled up anchor around 7am, motored thru to The Pungo River. The winds were fair so we set sail on Pamlico Sound. The engine was turned off, it was a great sail. Only later did we realize the engine wouldn’t start. We trouble shot while sailing, with Danielle at the helm, without Navigation, to conserve power, she did an awesome job getting us around a very large shoal and the “circle of danger” with the help of Google Maps, a chart on Dan’s computer and the knowledge of navigation lights. We set anchor near Swan Creek, continued to trouble shoot with the help of buddies on the Island Packet Yacht Owners Association Facebook group.
