The boat was particularly wet inside this year. There is a leak somewhere and water collects inside during the summer rains, damaging the teak and leaving a mess. I think it is coming in from the propane locker although we've looked and looked for the area of egress without success. Need to fix that.
Anyway... WE'RE IN!!! And parked in our favorite slip at Le Phare Bleu Marina.
I spent our first day here putzing around on the boat while the mangy crew abandoned me and went off on a tour of the island with Cutty. They've returned with wonderful stories and two bottles of questionable rum thanks to our buddy, Cutty. There might be a photo of a monkey sitting on Stu.

The water pump won't shut off until the breaker snaps so I'll have to swap the pump out for a new one. The shower sump pump always acts up so we will continue to put up with that. Having had the rigging replaced means that all of those things like flag halyard cleats, SSB antenna connections, wifi mounts which hung from the rigging have to be put back in place.

I am glad you explained which one was the monkey. I am not missing the heat and the work but am missing all the familiar things about the boat. Take good care of Blue Pearl without me!ReplyDelete
I thought I would see pictures of the crew sweating it our doing all the work chores and the captain swinging the Cat O`nine Tails. Looking forward to hearing about the adventures on the trip to the north east.ReplyDelete
