What a weekend!!

Set out Noon on Friday to head downtown for the night, then go to the NAS Jacksonville airshow the next day.

A few hundred yards from our dock, the starboard engine overheats, so I shut it down. Drop anchor and jump overboard to check for obstructions or growth on the drive, but it's pretty good (a little growth, but nothing big enough to block the intakes). One possibility down, 2 to go... Open the hatch, nope, the belt isn't broken... which leaves....

Impeller.

Thank goodness for Bravo drives, and that I had a spare pump on board. I fashioned a plug out of papertowel and duct tape, and rebuilt the pump right there at anchor. Success!

Just as we're arriving at the landing, the port voltage drops, and the engine over heats. I open the hatch to find that the brand new water pump, with its good pressure, has blown a hose, and everything is soaked.

I tore down the port pump, and it looked brand new. Got a new hose the next morning, and we were able to make it out. I still don't know why the port engine over heated, or why the voltage dropped, but everything is fine now.

So, we make it to the air show. We had a great anchor spot, just north of the runway, about aligned with the center grandstands, so the planes frequently passed directly over head. Getting pictures was difficult with out a lens, and the speed the planes were moving, but here are few. Click image for larger version

The 2 best pictures, I'm posting separately. Our friend that was with us managed to snap this one.
This is a Bald Eagle fishing just off our stern, with the Blue Angles framed in the back ground. Just after this picture, he swooped down and pulled up a fish. Click image for larger version

We spent the night Saturday night at the Metro Marina, ($8 a night, regardless of boat size. Docking is free, just pay for power hook up), and came home this Morning. This is what was waiting in our big pine above the dock. 2 Bald Eagles. Click image for larger version

Sorry about that. It was working (in full size) when I first submitted the post. Not sure why the pics I copy from a URL come out full size & the pics taken from my computer are tiny pics and need to be clicked on to expand!?

looks like it's time to invest in proper dock lines and some fenders. I'll let you in on a secret, tying up with a ski rope is... Well... Amateur... I guess is the best way to put it.

I will always miss Powell. But I don't miss the Wahweap and Stateline ramps, and all the hassle getting in and out.
