String of bad luck.

golfdoggolfdog Member Posts: 151 ✭✭✭
 So last month I had a case of vertigo at work and was taken to hospital by ambulance. While there they did a CT scan and then a couple hours later they did another and found two aneurysms high in brain above and behind each eye. I was told at hospital they were small and was released next day with many doctor appointments to schedule. So after seeing neurosurgeon and vascular surgeon I was told that aneurysms 10mm or bigger are considered large and need to be corrected. One of mine is 12 mm and the other is 9 mm. Thursday I'm scheduled for an cerebral angiogram to see if they can fix via artery or skull. So that sucks. Then yesterday I get a call that my boat is in water and ready to move to my marina. Me and my buddy get to boat start starboard engine and it starts right up start port and it also starts up but starboard stalls. My boat has inboards and I was checking for water flow from exhaust when I see that I have no oil pressure on port engine. I  shut everything down and check oil and I notice oil all over around oil filter but filter seems tight same thing on starboard engine. The marina that puts the boat in also winterizes, changed oil, and stores my boat. I could not stick around due to a video Dr. appointment. The service manager and owner assured me they would take care of it. I haven't heard anything from them today and quite honestly with everything gong on it's not a high priority at the moment. On the bright side, I was able to get new windlass installed last week while still being a little wobbly from the vertigo( Thanks Black_Diamond) and new battery charger. 
 The one good thing from all this is that if I had never gotten the vertigo they never would have found the aneurysms.
 Sorry for the long winded sob story just needed to vent.

    Wishing you all the best for a fast recovery. I’m sure the oil leak was just an issue with the line and an easy fix...

    Take care of yourself. A #1!!  The boat will wait. Good luck with your appointments and resolution. Hopefully an ‘easy’ fix.

    You are part of our boating family, & will keep you in our prayers.  Everything will turn out fine.  I'm also sure your service manager will take good care of your boat so that it will be ready when you are! :)

    Thank you all for the very kind words it really means a lot. By this time tomorrow I'll know path forward and that will be a relief.
    As far as boat goes, my buddy stopped at the marina today and they say they fixed leak on port engine. He asked about starboard and they thought it was only port even though there is oil all over each motor. Hopefully they will address it tomorrow. As some of you have said boat isn't high priority right now and I agree. It will all work itself out.
    Again, Thank you.

    Great news Jerry - for you and about your boat. I was just notified today by my cancer center that I will receive a transfusion tomorrow - good news for me - and that our local marinas can begin full service and place boats in the slips. Boat owners can not visit their boats at their slips yet but that is coming next. At least the boats will be in the water and ready once proximity rules are relaxed and we will now be able to get our Waverunner out of heated storage.....some good news, eh?

    Great great news! I hope the boat problems didn’t give you medical issues. A lot of guys on here are now alcoholics due to boat issues LOL

    Are you saying that alcohol was a factor in buying your boat?
