Danny went to fire up the starboard engine this morning, and it was dead, so he climbed down in and poked around and found that the battery was swollen and hot – ready to explode. So, he removed it from the engine compartment and we took the water taxi into town for a new battery.
Since it’s Good Friday, no one in Bocas is allowed to sell or purchase booze. Police were everywhere enforcing it, and signs were posted.
Danny found a battery and we headed back home to Tanda Malaika. I never get tired of the beautiful scenery.
Our neighbor, Steve, came over and helped Danny install the new battery, drain the water that was in the diesel, and repair a few other things.
While they were working together, Steve told us how he loves to play the guitar and sing, so we told him about Danny’s music talents too. The two of them decided to get together and play.
THEY SOUND SO GOOD!!!!! Before long, the two of them will be playing up at the Castaways Restaurant here at the marina.
