Day 4 Quincy to Elsberry MO.

Viewed: 377  
   On Wednesday we got going fairly early, it wasn't long before we noticed the Port engine was running very rough. We stopped for fuel at Hannibal MO. (61 gallons) & decided to change the ignition on it over to the original points & condenser set up & of course re-timed it again. So much for the upgraded electronic ignition kits. I also noticed that the alternator had snapped a couple of bolts so we decided to search for those at our next stop.
    We didn't find any friendly places for a long distance until we came across another private boat club with a pier. The door was locked but someone inside heard us checking it & came out to let us in. There were 4 guys in the establishment & they allowed us to buy a couple of their $1.25 Budweiser's. The longer we talked with them the more I was reminded that we were in Missouri now. They told us about a marina about an hour away by water so we thanked them & headed out.
   We pulled into Timberlake Marina near Elsberry MO.with enough time that we could borrow the owners car to get groceries & eat at a local mexican restaurant, it wasn't real good. that was it for the night.
