August 4, Friday Kingston Mills to Kingston, Ontario – 5 important miles
The boat mechanics finally arrived at our boat after lunch and started diagnosing the multiple issues and fixing them! We actually had the needed impeller (for the starboard engine) on board in the parts left by the previous owner. and the generator was fixed as well. The port engine requires a replacement transmission unfortunately but we were able to travel to Kingston on one engine. Dirk and Shaun were pleased we could finally leave (as were we).
In the morning Monica and I walked a mile to Tim Horton’s for treats and to get an additional propane bottle in case we needed to stay another day without electricity. We saw some lovely flowers along the way.
I also took photos of the powerful waters coming down the rapids. Nice ions near there!
