Departed on 8/21/2012 at 7AM.

Beautiful morning!  We are very excited to begin our journey south to Orange Beach Alabama and Barber Marina.

About ½ hour into our trip, the v-drive indicator light tells us we may have problems.  We stop at Prescott, WI where we learn our starboard v-drive pump has no pressure.  After several phone calls, we decide to head up the St Croix river to the Windmill Marina where there is an experienced v-drive mechanic. The Windmill Marina mechanics confirm the need for a v-drive pump.  Now…where to locate one?  The only dealer for the Walter brand that we need has closed shop for the whole week.  Looks like we’ll be here for awhile.  It’s a beautiful spot, so no complaints, just disappointment at the delay.
