Pull up anchor and off we go. Next stop, Rock Hall! Um, no...
|Towing our broke ass boat.
We motored out the Severn River and we almost made it to the bay bridge when the port engine cut out. The engine compartment was opened only to discover a burning smell and a very small fire. Fire extinguishers to the rescue! First a call to the charter company and then a call to a water towing service (think AAA but on water).
Let's take an inventory - the starboard engine won't restart if stopped and the port engine was dead.
We aimed for our port of origin and the towing service met us and helped to get us back into our slip.
It turned out wires shorted out to - guess what? The port starter. Two engines, two bad starters. The charter company could not locate two starters so they offered us a different boat.
We took it.
