Genset Repair in Grafton Il 10/31 – Marianne Great Loop

Genset troubleshooting this morning on #MissMarianne and St Louis is in our sights. We lost the genset twice yesterday, so had to check the water flow, impeller, sensors, and fuses. Albert talks to the boat when he's doing stuff (I should get more video of this – I got video and time lapse both and will get both uploaded – watch this post). We got a late start but underway. Someone was going to see about getting a photo of us as we pass the St Louis Arch, I don't remember who, but you can go to marine tracker and search for Marianne. We just entered the Mississippi River and headed south.

— with Albert Bartkus at Melvin Price Locks and Dam.

We have a brief morning update . We are now standing by above Starved Rock locks heading downbound. AIS has been glitchy for people to follow us due to the lack of relay stations inland. #missmarianne
