Back to Hopetown

02 December 2011 | Hopetown on Elbow Cay, Bahamas
very windy, 78F
We've been back in the Bahamas for two weeks now, and finally starting to relax a bit. It's been two weeks of constant work, repairing toilets, engines, dinghy, shower, anchors, lines, generator, bicycles, pumps, the list goes on and on....
Having the boat sitting on dry land in 45C temperatures is really tough on plastics, rubber, electrical wiring, pumps, etc. with the result that weeks of preparation work are required before everything gets sorted out properly.

But we sailed from Marsh Harbour this morning to Hopetown in 25 knots of wind from the NE.... a bumpy ride, during which we discovered some more needed repairs.... so it goes!

We'll relax here in Hopetown for at least a week while friends from New Mexico (Santa Fe) visit for a week to experience the sailing way of life....

Fair winds and clean diesel to all!
