we feel how a strange scent penetrates into the cockpit, in panic we rush down and turn off all electronics and discover that the starter to the engine is burning. We quickly gain control of the situation, but the problem is that we are not in port, but we are about 300nm 36 hours from the nearest country. We have to fix this. We produce all the electrical tools we have and demente the grinding machine to pick parts for the starting engine and after a while we succeed in getting the engine started again. You might wonder why we really need the engine when it is a sailboat we are traveling with but of pure safety we must always be able to start the engine if something should happen, if someone falls into the water.
