The plan was to give it one more go. One more try before major engine reconstruction. Biding time with the hope of finishing the season and a decent plan for a replacement engine. Shit, to do the job now would mean missing a charter, maybe two. All seemed fine as we headed out to the islands. Our temporary solution may just get us through. We had some good fun waves this trip and the boys had a blast. The Captain was still out of action with 10 stitches in his shin. He sat and watched and took photos and dreamed of perfect scenarios for the ultimate engine solution. All the while the lads kept surfing, drinking, and eating.
Unbeknown to Wazza and his mates, the Captain's dream was fast turning into a nightmare.
As luck would have it, the engine gave out at another offshore spot with plenty of waves to while away the days. Including a new spot they christened "Jindys".
They made it back to port and all were stoked. Except the Captain, who would be pushed to the limits in the next couple of weeks.
