03 February 2010 | Ensenada, Argentina
There is no fuel dock in La Plata/Ensenada (La Plata is the city built near the harbor of Ensenada). In the picture, Issuma is taking on 800 litres of diesel fuel from the tank on the trailer connected to the 1949 truck. There are lots of old vehicles still in use in Argentina.
After bringing the boat to the dock, I went with the owner of the truck and tank to the service station to buy the fuel. After returning to the dock, the fuel was transferred to Issuma partly by electric pump, partly by gravity feed. It took a few hours, because I was filtering most of the fuel before it went in the tanks. Now there is lots of fuel aboard.
