#285 Finding a hardware tool in a foreign country is difficult. Finding the right information to speak to the right people with the right paperwork to extend a visa during a pandemic is another level of difficulty for us. It's likely that this is not the last you will hear about the Schengen visa. A few issues with La Vaga are also keeping us on our toes.

    Interesting to me how you guys support the Liberal Leftist agenda.. ex: you had the leftist "child" who 's echoing her father's script on your vessel. Now after Brexit you're realizing the consequences of leftist globalism. In this episode I see you guys growing up and realizing that the leftist agenda is not what you wanted. You just want to be free and sail on! A real eye-opener!

Create a community where people becomes a network of adventurers, sailors & travelers! Do it every 6 months. Sailors love their sailing communities. Create your own community of voyeurs & doers! We all back you. Now let’s get to know each other better. I love my sailing community & would love to become a part of yours! Amazing job both of you!

    Your dinghy is a hugely important life line. Comparable to your reliance on your communications systems. Therefore, from my general life experience with all types of engines...chainsaws, motorcycles, marine outboards, yard equipment and automobiles, I recommend these two easy steps to identify and resolve your outboard motor problem. As I don’t know the particulars of your outboards motor such as manufacturer, year, 2 or 4 cycle, etc. This is a simple, non detailed procedure for your consideration. 1. Visually verify that the spark plug is actually sparking when starter chord is pulled. A. Close fuel line feed valve. B.. Disconnect the spark plug wire followed by removal of the spark plug. Reconnect the spark plug wire to the spark plug.. C. While wearing rubber gloves, hold spark plug line connected to spark plug at a safe distance to visually observe any occurrence of spark at spark plug electrode. D.. An assistant will pull starting chord slowly while you confirm/deny appearance of electrical spark at electrode. Remedy, if spark occurs great...go to step 2. If no spark then reconnect spark plug, remove outboard motor and have it inspected/repaired professionally. If cost of repair exceeds 50% or higher, consider purchase of new outboard motor. You and your (growing) family require a safe, constant and reliable motorized dinghy at all times...especially in case of an emergency! 2. Fuel stabilization A.. First spray 2-3 short burst of “engine starter fluid” into spark plug opening to motor. Quickly re-instal spark plug to motor then reattach spark plug line. Pull starting chord repeatedly until it starts. You may need to patiently repeat this step a few times. B.. Once started, allow engine fuel reservoir to run dry. C. Add or replace fuel with higher octane rated fuel (best fuel is ethanol free). Then following directions add in fuel stabilizer. www.thedrive.com/reviews/28046/best-fuel-stabilizers .I’ve allays had success with STA-BIL 22214 Fuel Stabilizer....whichever one you choose it will be a welcome relief in having your old or new motor reliably start when needed. Potency of fuel is critical...as captain and master of your domain avoiding impotency is always a critical concern! 😉 D.. Open fuel line valve, start engine and take a short ride to ensure that fuel and stabilizer are well mixed. If you decide to purchase a new motor, consider upgrading to a Mercury outboard. Good luck!

    Riley We operate a fleet of Honda outboards. The only time we had a problem with no start was a result of a motor being laid down in the wrong position. Oil from the crankcase gets into the carburetor. The only way to correct the problem is to remove the carb, disassemble it and wash completely with gasoline. Bill
