The outboard is working!
The fuel outlet in the portable tank was plugged. Dick decided to use instead the aluminum diesel tank, but first he had to suck out the last of the diesel (he’d already pumped out the bulk of what was in the tank) - and didn’t get ANY in his mouth.
He test-fired the outboard and (yay!) it worked just fine.
Today, we moved back to panga docks where we hope to be based from now on. The rhythm of our life will now change.
