After some internet research with the wi-fi here at the mooring and quite a few phone calls this morning, we were able to find a suitable part at the local Fernandina Beach Napa store. Brad’s changing the oil and installing the new tank as I type, and we’re planning to fill up with diesel and be back on the move south very shortly.
My parents have joined the crew, and my dad will board at the diesel dock while my mom moves the car a little farther south on land before jumping aboard. We’ll be waving goodbye to the dolphins in the mooring field and will post another update as soon as we can!
Here are some photos Brad took this morning of the engine issue:
