Thanks Jack,

Tracy and i went to a comedy show last night (needed some laughter) then made it an early night. The mechanic called around 8 and said he got my boat back together so I went up to Oshkosh this morning to pick it up for the weekend. Still have to take it back up to them next week as this was only a temporary fix. At least i can get out on the river today.

Still hoping that we will be able to make to Chicago on the 12th.
