Our old Danfoss compressor system came with SY Esper when we bought her, and was probably installed at the time of build in 1989! To be honest, it had become a rusting heap of shit.
And since we’re in the water, how about servicing our watermaker and replacing the membranes too?
In this episode the diesel leak defeats Liz, Jamie’s had enough of trying to get the brand-spanking-new bronze seacocks to fit, and we need your help on the solar panel installation.
We wanted to support the local people by using an untried canvas worker… But no-one was really sure they knew what they were doing. Including the canvas guys themselves!
So before we went back in the water Jamie checked the seacocks, right? Yeah, but one decided to fail while we were in the water. On the bright side, better it fail here than out at sea…
Moving a sailboat in a gale, is it dangerous? Millie and Jamie didn’t feel safe as SY Esper swung around in her cradle, the hull shuddering with each gust of wind. Sometimes life on the hard is hard!
