We are anchored out in the Apalachicola river next to Apalachicola. We've been working on a few things... We were going to dingy into town and buy a new cell phone. Because our Virgin Mobile phone doesn't have service here... We get the dingy blown up and the motor on it. The motor starts, but was gushing gacoline out of the carbuerator. I take the carburator off and found the float valve was stuck. But it still wasn't running properly. Gave up on it for the day.
That night we wake up at 4 in the morning cause we here the hourmeter in the instrument cluster ticking! I get up and look and the gauges' are all lit up too... I turn the key off and on and it still stays on. I worked on it from then till 5 in the afternoon. After much looking, I found that there was an internal short inside one of the main connectors on the engine's wiring harness. So I cut out all of the wires and spliced them together.
Then that night we had one of our worst storms ever... It rained really hard and blew like mad from 7 PM till 5 AM the next morning. Tomorrow is supposed to be OK, so we'll probably go to Carabelle. But we are doing fine, just a few issues to take care of.
