More adventures!

23 January 2011 | Marsh Harbour
Yet another cold front arrives
We had a wonderful visit with Shaun, who took advantage of the windy conditions to introduce me to the sport of Kite-surfing. This is a very challenging activity which involves launching and controlling an enormous kite which is capable of picking you up and throwing you into the air/water.
We sailed south to Little Harbour, explored the islands, and anchored off of Snake Cay.
The excitement occurred when we discovered the windlass had died, with the result that we needed to haul up the 200 ft. (600 lbs) of 3/8" chain c/w our 50lb. Danforth anchor.
We also discovered that all of our batteries (700 Amphours) were dead, so we were unable to start the engine or generator. Thankfully the sails could be raised and the compass still worked, so with the paper charts we sailed back to Marsh Harbour where we are attempting to figure out what is wrong with our electrical system, and locate a new solenoid for our windlass (which is not available in the Bahamas). Lot's of fun!
