About 9 miles short of our return run to Chicago I lost my starboard engine pretty abruptly. Put someone behind the wheel and I thought fuel filters. I cleaned the pancake screen for larger debri followed by changing the cartridge filter. No luck. This morning im back up running. Changed out the ignition relay. Yes i stock extras. Ive burnt them out before. 454 Crusader xl with efi. Symptoms didn't seem the same as before otherwise i would have changed it while under way and could have docked with two engines. I dont mind honing docking skills once in a while.

2nd hit we’ve taken. Sucks.

Hinkley charter boat vs Chris Craft in the Chicago Locks. Yeup. He lost joystick and steering and apparently lost control of thrust. Bent rub rail on my swim platform and gave me a good dent in the wood on the stern.

2nd hit we've taken. Sucks.
