Odyssey IV and her crew say hello from beautiful Marsh Harbour.
On February 20 we arrived in Marsh Harbour and spent a week at anchor. We were having big problems with our outboard motor, enough problems that we were afraid to go exploring with our dinghy, she would for no reason stop and not start again. The vote was unanimous, we need a new motor. We are now the proud owners of a new 2 stroke 8 horsepower Mercury outboard. :-) Now we can go places and not worry!
We donated our old outboard to Every Child Counts, a wonderful organization that helps needy children. We were told that it will get repaired and sold.
February 28 we head for Hope Town, the weather is going to get pretty nasty so at least we will be in a protected mooring field. Hope Town is such a pretty town, not the worst place to be stuck.

Today we have a rest from the winds, one day is all we get, tomorrow it builds up again to 25 knots for another 24 hours. I must say that this year the weather is very windy and sometimes cold, nothing like the weather we had last year, but look, who is complaining, at least I don't have to shovel snow.
Bye for now!
