Not much really, as you would expect. The progress is slow, the learning slower. Here are a few things I can share:

  • A bunch of small stuff purchased (e.g. winch handles, cable ties, tools, etc);
  • The on board pharmacy was all expired so I’m due for a complete new set;
  • Repairs were made to some of the old sails; in fact, I’d like to put the old mainsail in place, but that’s at least a 2 persons job;
  • I thought I had fixed the code 0 halyard, but when I tried to use it, I had the same problem; I have tried to fix it again today;
  • I have brought the staysail halyard home as it needs repair; in fact, it looks like all headsail halyards will need repair (chafe damage);
  • The anti-fouling paint has no anti-fouling properties at all; I think I’ll try to schedule a bottom job;
  • I’ve bought a 10×6 drain tarp (to catch water), a manual desalinator and a filtering water bottle;
  • I’ve fiddled with some of the wiring and removed the old Inmarsat mini-C system (listed on eBay);
  • It’s time to go sailing again!
Just a concept for now …
