We haven't seen Mike and Betts all season due to their engine problems, they have been stuck sitting at anchor in Trellis bay while a new ( used ) engine was sourced. They hit the jackpot as the moorings was changing out some Yanmars and they got 3 engines, one that definitely worked, 2 iffy or for parts- for FREE. then it was a matter of getting old out new in and matching up transmission fittings.
Unfortunately its been their whole season. We're hoping its running by haul out.
So, we decided we would head there to say hi and had dinner with them and Ken & Dorothy ( Bluestar) at the Loose Mongoose. Then its off to find a quieter, less congested anchorage.
