Engine Repair Sea Trial

The mechanic came by this morning to do the sea trial with Dave. The repaired motor started right up. It ran 20 knots at wide open throttle. Purrs like a kitten at idle. Dave says it is a pleasure docking with two engines again. He cannot get rid of his boat grin.

Ultimately when the bill came, we expected it to be about $10 to $12K.  It was $34K.  WTF?!? Turns out they had mistakenly charged us both for the pump rebuild and a brand-new pump!
