Into the Boatyard
20 April 2011 | Lagos
We were lifted out for a week to 10 days yesterday to anti-foul and do some other jobs in Sopromar in Lagos which is very clean and tidy with tarmac rather than the sand in Olhao but the price is higher of course. However only a short walk to the beach.
Kaivalya decided to be difficult about reversing into the lift, the worst she has ever been, so we had to drop the forestay and go in forwards. While she was being pressure-washed the lift driver was chatting to us about her antics - going round in a circle or sideways and spotted some thin rope round the prop, no wonder we were so slow and she was misbehaving big time. However we could see that the rope cutter on the propeller had worked!
