First sail of the year
06 January 2013 | Brighton
Bob B / SW 2-3, Smooth, Fog
A couple of hours out of Brighton in the Fog – had a great time playing with Radar and trying not to hit the racing fleet that were out.
Engineer log: Tried to prove gas leak – think its leaking from valve, which ill replace. Did prove that the pipe from the gas locker was badly run and was going up hill – hence no gas could escape. Made a temporary fix – but will implement a better fix when i can get a 90 degree skin fitting.
We also dragged out the aft cabin contents to have a look at the potential transmission fluid leak. No leaks found – fluid thought to be diesal. Transmission fluid good. Will continue to investigate
Navtex – alarm on – possibly signal issue – to be investigated.
