Rather than talk about my motor issues here I’ve started a thread on Trawler Forum which I’ll keep updated. Great bunch there. See http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/s6/problems-nos-cummins-6bta-32926.html
I was imagining yesterday that my summer plans were in jeopardy, but am more hopeful now and have a plan for action.
Haven’t adequately solved my charging problems and am now carrying bottled water out to the boat. And I’m likely going to be on the hunt tomorrow for specialized tools, but I remain hopeful I can get traveling soon. If I can I’m going to opt for the Erie Canal rather than the Welland as my route out of Lake Erie.
