Incomplete Waste of a Day
15 February 2010 | Panamarina, Panama
Due to limited interest in Carnival around most of US, was able to get train moving for repair and replacement of engine pump and new camera (fried beyond help; may be awhile until pictures catch up with blog). Will get excellent price on new one and frankly deserve a good spanking for not checking voltage. Will endeavor to be more observant henceforth. "Once burned, twice only singed"... slow learner.
In interest of avoiding dubious culinary efforts, dinghied through mangrove tunnel with Michael and Barbara to Hans' restaurant across from Isla Linton for early dinner (Panamarina restaurant is closed until Wednesday). Very nice pulpo (octopus) was enhanced by beer and preparation avoiding any evidence of tentacles.
Yesterday, created permanent installation of 500 watt inverter as backup for new heavy duty Prosine 2.0 inverter/charger still awaiting customs clearance. Earliest likely delivery of same would be Ash Wednesday depending on bureaucratic hangoverage.
Tomorrow should consist of massive boat chores. Regrettably, the best, coolest time to work is before I get up and then it's happy hour.
