... till you run aground ...
well we did !
yesterday - on a calm and beautiful day at lower tide then expected - we hit the ground - actually the mud and 45 minutes later with an incoming tide we where off again - so there it is - we ran aground - we sat it out and we recovered - thanks to the moon ;-)
the rain falls must have filled the riverbed with runoffs which aided in our stoppage.
we also calibrated everything on all instruments including the "depth sounder"
next week finally off to Fiji ..
