Settling In & Boat Work

After three weeks in Marsh Harbour, (though I was in Nassau for a week at a lectureship), I am finally settling in.

The culprit on the starter system was the "Slave Solenoid" or "Secondary Solenoid" as some call it. My good friend, Scott Harris, along with my new friend, Joe Canales, came over today and Scott worked on the starter system while Joe and I put the dinghy in the water.

The engine now cranks on demand, I can now dink out to the reefs and coral heads to fish, snorkel, and explore the island and nearby islands during my free time, and I am flying my Bahamas flag.

I'll move from slip to the hook at the end of the month, (can't afford to stay in a slip here... very expensive and electric is 65 cents per kilowatt hour).

Thanks Scott & Joe for your help! You guys are the BEST!

Fair seas and God bless!


  1. Good to see you're doing well.

    At this point, I can only hope my boat will be ready before the winter haul out. Getting boat moved off the trailer and onto stands soon so I can work on the bottom.

    Really like that last picture. Good view of the beach. :)

    1. Thanks Dan... You will get it done.

      Abaco is a very beautiful place.
