Arrived at Wellesley Island New York on Saturday July 8th for a three week vacation. Had the boat in the water by 10am, rained the rest of the day, Sunday and most of Monday. Went for a cruise Monday night and noticed a wining noise and bilge pump ran for extended time. Pulled boat on Tuesday morning and went to Chalks Marina. Split in bellows and failing gimbal bearing. Back in the water on the 16th. Rain,...rain,...more rain,...clouds, wind,...more rain. On the evening of the 22nd I may have witnessed the heaviest rain I have ever experienced. I found a bucket outside the next morning with about a foot of water in it, I'm sure was empty before the storm. Restaurants, fuel stations, etc. are all suffering loss of business; the one exception is liquor stores. I don't know how I managed to put 10 hours on the boat. 2017 will go down as the summer that wasn't.
P.S. still had fun, beautiful location.
