Life & Travels Afloat in our Moody
At last we get to leave Marin! There were various teething bits to resolve with the fitting of the new engine, mainly to do with various electrical bits not doing what they were supposed to.
For the techies, there was real alternator hassle, so we ended up designing brackets to fit a 2nd alternator. Wiring finished this morning and it all works!!! Hooray!
Never mind, we got to spend a couple of days anchored off St Anne, mainly swimming and barnacle bashing. The little blighters attach themselves despite the copper anti-fouling and the ultrasonic deterrents, both of which are meant to repel such alien life-forms. Never mind, it is not too much of a chore in the warm water, and they come off easily enough.
Actually, so does the skin if you don’t use a piece of wood, as ‘fingerless’ Annemarie will attest…..
I was dragged to the barbers this morning, and now have been heavily shorn. The rugged windswept look has been binned in favour of the casual unkempt 🙂
How do you like the local wifi café?
We spent a very pleasant evening with Charlie and Kate (Webster), in Marin Bay, and hope to catch up with them again in Dominica. That is our next real destination, all being well, although we will have a couple of stops on the way.
