Back to Alton Marina  cousins Leroy , Elaine and Eileen stopped on the 27th of September for a quick ride.  Bruce forgot to open the sea cocks and our starboard engine overheated. Antifreeze everywhere and steam coming out of the engine room . SCARY  !.  We donned life jackets just in case. We made it back to the marina and cooled the engine down. It was a tight squeeze down there cleaning up the mess it made in our bilge.   Everything seems ok .  Also Bruce put the 20 horse motor back on the dinghy with Mike’s help.  Spent a few $ at the Argosy casino next door. Hopefully we’ll get to listen to the concert music at the park next door tonight.
