Club Carp - Tuesday - Thursday Blog #2
Sorry we missed a couple of days of blogs.Tuesday we were very busy working on the Generator. The generator shut down. So we changed all the fuel filters, then discovered that the raw water impeller had stopped working. Now we know how to change it. Generator works great.Wednesday was sunny and we did odd jobs on board.Thursday has started out great. Great sail all night with a few rain squalls.We caught a 40# Mahi-Mahi at 8:30. Had a hard time reeling it in for 30 min, then easy after a shark bit off her tail. She lost 5#'s.Now we have so much fish too eat!Crew of Club Carp. read more...
