One of us FINALLY convinced the other it was time to call a mechanic. He came out yesterday. tested the alternator and found an issue with it. He took it to an alternator repair shop and brought it back this afternoon… installed it… and it works!
Now that we’re back on track… its going to be Friday… and its bad luck to leave on Friday. So tomorrow we will top off the water and fuel tanks, change the oil and do one last load of laundry. If everything goes as planned we’ll head out Saturday morning around 8 AM for the Exumas.
