We’re back in the water!

We’re in the water, and it feels GREAT!!!

We’re now so close to leaving and we’re getting super excited. The weather has been unusually sunny and calm, which is odd for this time of year. We can’t guarantee it’ll hold out like this for our departure but with just the canvas work and a bit of stainless to go, there really isn’t much left to do. We’ve pencilled in ‘some time next week’ for our departure, but don’t tell everyone. A sailor’s plans, remember, are written in the sand…

Of course there are really a hundred jobs left to do on the boat, but these are listed as ‘can be done at anchor’, and it’s at anchor that we’re aiming for. There’s light at the end of the tunnel and we can see a palm-fringed island at the end of it.

And since we’re in the water, how about servicing our watermaker and replacing the membranes too? It’s a job Jamie’s been putting off, because those new membranes are pretty fiddly. And we haven’t needed to use the watermaker for some months. But he rolled up his sleeves, and brought the beast up into his worktop (the cockpit!) where he began the process of dismantling, servicing and replacing.
