welcome to our blog!

This blog tells the story of our 22-month sailing journey from Oakland, California, to Bristol, Rhode Island, aboard our beloved Bristol 32 sailboat, Ute. Please feel free to browse through the archives (partway down the sidebar to your left) to see pics and read stories of our adventures in North America and Central America . (Sorry the first 3 months of the trip are missing - they vanished somewhere in an internet cafe in Mexico - but all you're missing is CA, Baja and Western Mex).

If you're trying to track us down now that we're landlubbers, try us at uteatlarge at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

this little guy is the housing, or assembly, depending on who you talk to, (I now can identify all the parts in spanish, but still don{t have a clue in english). call it what you will, but this is on end of the big thing in the other pics, and this one end contains the faulty valve that is keeping the whole engine from working.

the part we have everyone looking for is the whole pump as seen in the other pics. but this is the part of it that really matters. so if you can find either - just this part or the whole pump - it would work.
