Careful What you wish for!

With all our recent dinghy engine problems I was wishing for a new dinghy engine.

We upped the anchor in Charlotte Amalie and low and behold what is dragging from our anchor but an outboard engine. Not exactly the new one I wished for, but an engine none the less.

Outboard hooked on our Anchor Chain

Now how to get rid of it?  Cruise the bay with our anchor dragging while Gord lowers the dinghy, races to the front, attaches a rope to the motor while he frees our anchor. Then back to the deep it goes, along with all the other garbage and debris that is in the ottom of the bay. 

Mark that GPS waypoint Sue, as we'll probably be back.
