The boat gets fixed!

12 March 2009 | Marsh Harbour Boat Yard
rather cool
The failure of the gear shift cable resulted in the boat stuck in reverse as we tried (unsuccessfully) to accelerate out of a rather crowded harbour.

We spent six days "on the hard" while the boat was repaired thanks to the excellent work of Shaun, the fibreglass expert from Eleuthera.

A perfect repair was completed in 13.5 hours, with the boat back in the water within 5 working days, and we immediately sailed south into the remote Cays of the southern Abacos.

It was wonderful to be back on the water.

Living on board while the boat was being repaired was less than perfect, due to the lack of water, bathrooms, friends, and being in a very dirty environment. Boatyards are not the cleanest places in the planet with lots of toxic chemicals all over the ground.

Weird event....

There was another couple living on their 38' catamaran in the boatyard (for six weeks) who we invited for dinner.

After a lovely evening sharing stories of life, children, adventures, etc. I realize that Louise and I had sailed through the Red Sea and across the Med to Cyprus with two of their sons in 2007. Who knows?
