... 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 ..
