Move time! Or is it?
After arranging kid care and taking 2+ weeks off work, we drove 8 hrs to Jacksonville to get back to our home! With the fridge stocked and the rental car returned, we just needed to install the new nav light, maybe swap out a macerater, and figure out why there was so much water in the bilge! Seriously, where was it coming from? I got all the water out and we couldn't see a drip, so we started the engine--nothing. Put it in gear--bingo! The shaft seal was hemorraging water. F. F. F. Now what? We want to go, but with light winds the next 2 days we will have to motor. There's only one thing we can do--wait until the morning and call yards along the river to see if we can get it fixed pronto. If not, the plan will change!
