NonLinear and Cheetah II
Yesterday we had the outboard start a clacking noise. We called for help from Non Linear. Jon came over to where we were, getting a wire repair from FKG. He and Pete worked on it for an hour to no avail. So we went shopping. 2 hours later, we had bought an 18 HP Tohatsu, 2 stroke. Works great!
We are hoping the dinghy stays together...You got to remember, the dinghy is used as your personal car. Gets a lot of abuse. We probably would have bought the package deal, except they did not have correct size in stock.
We are headed for a flea market this morning, maybe we can sell the Yamaha cheap. We only paid 350 for it, so not great loss and used it for 8 months real hard. Pete thinks he might get 150 out of it, we shall see. In my book it is an anchor.
We went out with the group last night plus Persuasion, celebrated Carol's Birthday and our anniversary 44 years. Went to Lee's. Lobster dinner. For our daughter Debbie, this guy weight at 6 lbs, Dad ate half, plus some of mine. It came with fried plantains. It was awesome!! We
had to go to tank and pick it. Not a small feat. Pull it up by the tentacles, then the cook comes out and grabs it from you. Puts it on the scale, takes it out , then takes in the kitchen and throws in the boiler. Then back out he comes, cleans out by the water, divides it in half. Adds a garlic sauce, totally coats with garlic, puts it in the oven for 5 minutes, then brings it out to table for you.
It was delicious.
