What a Complete Waste of Time

I took a trip back to the boat. The plan was to move to a different marina.

First the engine wouldn't start. Diesels have a tendency to pull a vacuum in the fuel system, this was tough to get rid of - harder than usual. (A lose hose clamp on the fuel filter?)

Then after getting that taken care of, the exhaust system needs repair. $150 (or less) worth of parts. A small amount - as boats go - but that's what happens when you leave things in a corrosive environment like salt water.

The real issue is that the new marina ticked me off with a host of new regulations. (I had been there in the past, and was on the waiting list for pretty long time.) For the 15 dollars a month difference, I would rather not be ticked off.
