Boating in a foreign country is hard but even harder is finding the right place to provide the parts and stuff you need.
Basically the conversation starts out like this...
"uuhh...boat....uhh...engine...uhh...can I draw you a picture."
It took me three hours to find the Yamaha Marine engine shop in Naha. Then it took another call to my wife to translate what I needed once there.
Ahhh. The boating life.
