Whirling dervishes arrive in Kettering

22 March 2012 | Kettering, Tasmania
Marcie
Wow...we were a pair of whirling dervishes today. We hit the ground running, knocking chores off the list as if we'd like to go on the bus to Hobart tomorrow...which we do.

David washed down the decks, covered and lashed the dinghy and stowed all extra lines from the rails while Marcie did laundry and hung it out to dry, covered up winches and cockpit instruments and began putting things aside for return to the US. The speed transducer hasn't been working and David troubleshot it, finding that it wasn't the speed transducer, but rather the wiring to cockpit...fixed. He also found a troublesome, sneaky leak in the refrigeration system which has been plaguing us for months. He evacuated the refrig system, refilled it with refrigerant and we're good to go...next season. Marcie's writing an article on making a canvas deck bucket from old sails and needed to make a bucket to replace our current one before we leave as well as take photos. Done...tick another item on the list.

By the time the day was through, the chore list was down to a manageable size. We took a walk around the marina and the foreshore area ...a small chandlery, a few tradesmen, an inn/pub, the Bruny Island Ferry Dock and a couple of little restaurants along the ferry road. Otherwise, the marina itself is a work-in-progress. They're hoping to have their 50-ton TravelLift operational by the time we return (we hope so, too!).
