So a quick reminder to me: When filling up our water tanks (in excess of 120 gallons) make sure you turn the water off when the tanks are full. Better yet, make sure you are actually on the boat and not at Safeway getting groceries, nearly four miles away.
Yes, I overfilled...or should I say overflowed the water tanks. This action in turn spilled numerous gallons of water into the bilge providing a nice bilge cleaning process. At lease we know our bilge pumps work...

In the middle of dinner we get a phone call. The next day we get emails. How did you guys do with no power on the boat? Well, let's see here. I looked outside and it was pitch black in the houses surrounding the marina. We had lights (dc operating led cabin lights). We had heat via propane heater, and a fully functioning stove and oven also operating off of propane. So pretty much had the toast not been toasted, we probably wouldn't have noticed that some dummy took out a transformer box at 100 mph (that's probably not what happened, but it sounds exciting). So there landlubbers, score one for living on a boat.
