In Port, Tenerife, Safe

Another spectacular Reboot arrival. One NM from the harbor entrance my engine alarm went off. All the gauges were normal but with the alarm sounding I shut down. Tenerife Rescue came out and towed me in. I am so glad that I intend to spend 3 months here to go over every part of Reboot before I set out again. What is most frustrating is that the engine worked perfectly when I left Rota. I did not use it on the entire trip and it conked out just when I needed it. I checked the raw water intake and it drew a big vacuum so I think it is clogged. Of course the thru hull is now stuck, once again I say thanks for the next three months.

Passage summary to follow.

Fair winds and following seas.
