Exuma Cay Sea and Land Park
We pulled the anchor this morning and headed 30 nautical miles south to a place called Warderick Wells Cay and purchased a mooring ball for $20 bucks for the night and tomorrow. It will be nice because for the first time in a month we will not be anchored. Tomorrow we should see all kinds of animals, and there are many reefs to dive.
But all fun aside after we tied up to our mooring ball we ran into a big problem. Our diesel engine would not shut down when we push the stop button. I tried using the ignition key and turned that to the off position and the engine would not stop. I tried tracing out the wires to the engine from the stop switch but I could not find the source of the problem. Being a diesel engine I never gave any thought to having this problem so I am a little lost on how to jump my kill switch. I finally resorted to cutting off the fuel supply and stopped the engine. Anyway I hope that I can start the dam thing tomorrow but for now I am going to forget that problem and enjoy the island. Tomorrow sometime I will kick the can of problems down the street again!
