Engine Trouble

A few days ago one of our engines started overheating. After troubleshooting a few things, we realized something had happened to the impeller and it was no longer pumping cooling water to the engine. Luckily, we have two engines and we limped home using one of them at 7 knots (we usually travel between 15-20 knots). It is not easy to get parts here in Panama. Even the sparkplugs we need I have to bring from the states. As luck would have it, a mechanic happened to be coming to the islands where we are staying and was able to bring the parts we needed and helped us fix the engine. Thank you Isla Secas and Luigi for helping to get us back on our way!
