One last little fall foliage excursion up the bay and as I come about, I hear a clunk and the wheel just spins and the boat turns toward the rocks.
Feeling smart for taking out and trying to insert the tiller a few years ago so it wasn’t a complete mystery. The part where I couldn’t get the engine to start added to the adrenaline rush.
Limping back with the jib the feeling stupid part kicked in when it occurred to me that turning the key first improves glow plug performance dramatically.
Now I’m shopping for a good thread that explains how to fix the chain in the pedestal.
