My boat has been at Columbia Marine Center getting a new Westerbeke 15KW diesel generator installed after we put up with the old one sputtering and spitting for the past year or so. Today was the day we finally got to bring it back. On board were me, the owner of the marina that did the work, and one of his new guys who had assisted with the installation at certain points. The reason the young guy came along was because he'd been up on the flybridge and was amazed about how good the view was.
So we pulled out of the marina and I told him to go .ahead and take the helm. His eyes lit up, his smile went ear to ear and I didn't have to ask him a second time. So he drove the boat from just outside the marina through the raised railroad bridge then beneath another bridge that's just outside my marina. I asked him if he wanted to back it into the slip and he was quick to come out with a resounding "NO".
All things considered, I think he'd agree that this was a great day in his new career as a boat fixer.
