Missed post from last week.

26 October 2016 | Prickly Bay area
It looks like we will be here a bit longer than we thought. I brought back some vinyl and plexiglass for one of our friends here in Grenada and he hasn't been able to get the money to pay us back. I spoke with him today and he promises us he will have it in a week(Friday of next week)so we will be here just a few days longer than we had planned. It just allows us to get a few more projects done before we head up the islands.

We dinghied over to Spice Island Marina to do laundry later this morning. Costs about $9.00EC or $3.33US for a wash and the same for a dry. At$6.66US per load, it's the cheapest on the island we have enough found. Secret Harbour Marina runs over $11.50US per load bit they fold it too. For the additional $5.00, I can fold my own clothes.

It appears we will be hunting for new sheets. Our last two sets are starting to tear and just wear out. I brought them back with me from the US several years ago and all the washing they've endured has just done them in. We may be able to nurse them along for a few more months as Grenada isn't the place to look for new sheets. It's another product that they add tons of taxes too. The hunt starts tomorrow as we will be on the shopping bus again.

We joined another group of 7 and hiked out to Azizas restaurant for dinner first time we have grind eaten out in a while and the latest we've been off the boat in a long while. Not back on board till after 2000 hours. We still made sure to pull Puff back on board though.

I took some time this afternoon and sanded down the end of our $100batten. It's to thick to fit in the batten cars on our main sail. Now we have to see if it fits or do I need sand it down more so it will fit. he. I should find out in a day or so.

The picture today is more of our stash of food posed on our table for organizing and back into storage.

Back and forth and some rain.

Bill/partly cloudy and some rain
Today (Tuesday)is Thanksgiving here in Grenada. It marks their date of independence, not some Pilgrims sitting down with Indians. Just about every store on the island is closed. If you had any projects to do today, you needed to buy your parts yesterday and just how I spent a great deal of my time yesterday.
First, I went up the mast to check the connections to the anchor/nav/flash fixture up there. I pulled off the connection and reattached it. I also found that the zip ties that are screwed the mast that keep all the wires up there and not falling inside the mast were in really bad condition. One had snapped and the second had cracks in the plastic. I came down and took off for shore looking for a replacement. Nothing at Budget Marine, nor at a refrigerator/electricians shop. I hiked down to True Value and Ace with no success. On of the people at Ace recommended a shop near where I started so after another nice hike, I found they didn't have any either. Back to Burger Marine where I picked up a smaller size and some bolts to attach them and came back. Back up the mast and installed one of the new zip ties and bolts and added some other zip ties to keep the nylon protective cover on the wires. So far, it's working fine and seems to be even brighter.
Back to Budget Marine to get some line to replace what we use on our Lazy Jack system. These are a set of lines that are stitched together to form a grid that goes up on either side of the mainsail, so when it comes down, it stays on the boom and doesn't go all over the deck. One side of ours has frayed and needs replacing. Now we can get that job done.
Today was "stitch the mainsail day". The cover on the back side or leech of the sail had torn on our trip up from Trinidad and it needed restitching and some replacing. I started early in the morning and it took me till noon to get the job done. We had to layout the sail on deck so we could pull the line that runs down the leech of the sail under the cover I'd restitching back in place. Once that job was done, we decided to wait to put the main back on the boom till it got cooler, plus I needed to sand down the ends of the new battens so they will fit in the cars they ride in on the sail.
As we pulled the sail forward along the deck to get it back on the boom(at 1700), another section ripped!! The fabric is just getting to flimsy and we have to be careful. Tracy grabbed some adhesive backed sail clothe and we put it on. I'll be adding some stitches to the patch tomorrow before we get the sail back on the boom. Once we get it up there, we have to reinstall the battens and run the reeling lines back on the sail as well and we want to do this during rather cooler section of the day. From 1300 on, it just gets nasty with temperatures and humidity well into the 90s. I also got a lead on finding the proper size zip ties so once we get the mainsail fixed and reattached, I'll be heading for shore and doing some more hiking. We still have a few more jobs to get done but hope to be moving on by early next week.

Well, it's now Wednesday and it's been raining on and off since 0400. I know since I've been up since then. Just not a good night sleep. I've actually been awake since just after 0300. Blue was thrilled that I was up as I removed the door to the companionway and she rushed out into the cockpit. She came back below about 30 minutes later wet from the rain since she got caught out on deck when it started raining. Running back to the cockpit got her nice and wet. She made sure to crawl up on my chest when she came back below. Oh boy, a wet cat siting on my chest.

I took some time between rains and got another section of the seams on the mainsail restitching. With the sail soaking wet and much heavier, we'll be waiting for more sunny skies before we try and get it back on the boom. Since I was stick below, I took some time and cleaned out the Racor filter housing as well as the the filter. It's been a while since I changed it and it was looking a bit dirty. I carry a couple dozen on board.
We'll be heading in this afternoon,rain permitting, for Grenada Train Dominoes. We got a call from one of our friends(Johanna) that they have delayed going into Grenada Marine for repairs for a week or so. We weren't sure she was going to be there but knowing she is, we will definitely be going in.

The weekend in Grenada

23 October 2016 | Prickly Bay, Grenada
Bill/ Sunny and hot
It's now Saturday and we've been working on cleaning up and straightening up the inside of poor Zephyr. When we left Trinidad, we piled lots of the cans and bottles of paints, thinners and epoxies into tubs and there they sat, at least until today. We went in doing our best at clearing out lots of stuff. As I worked my way through one area, Tracy went at our food bins on the bunks on the forward cabin. We've had bins for storing food and other things ever since we bought Zephyr. Just don't need the bunk area. We've got four big bins just full of all kinds of stuff and we needed to see what we had stowed in them. We found crackers, balloons, Cheetos, cereal and even some old cream crackers from South Africa. Add in 6 quart jars of Hellmans(Best Food)mayonnaise and now we know what we don't need to buy any more of. NO MORE SNACKS! Every week here in Grenada, we have gotten into the habit of taking the group taxi to the local IGA grocery store and just buying more and more and more, not knowing what we actually have on board. Well now we know and other than lettuce for salads, we probably won't be buying much more there. We've got tons of food stowed all over the boat. Behind and under all the settee cushions in the main salon is just packed with food. It's like we think we will never seen a grocery store again. Luckily, we don't eat out much any more(too expensive)so we should be able to put some kind of a dent into our stores in a month or so. We have far more food on board than we ever had in our house and we had a bunch there too. Another thing we got stowed was the four bags of new cat food we brought back from the vet earlier this week. They are stowed under the stern bunk along with a bunch of bags of litter. Out here, most of us live by the statement that if you see it(and need it) you better buy it as it probably won't be there the next time you come.

It's now into the high 80s or low 90's and we've at least got a decent breeze coming through the anchorage so it's somewhat decent. Yesterday a french catamaran came back to the anchorage after a few days at the boat yard getting their bottom painted and after dropping their anchor, they dropped back and are now right on top of where ours is resting. Next time we put Puff in the water, we're going to go over and see how long they plan on staying. If "Sparky" comes through with the money he owes us on Friday as he promised, we should be out of here by Sunday at the latest and making our way north along the chain. While we really enjoy Grenada, it's well past time to get out of here especially since we are now closing in on the end of hurricane season.

I happened to be on deck when our French neighbors climbed down into their dingy and I motioned them to come over. We needed to see when they are leaving. The man spoke no English and the woman just enough to let us know that they plan on getting underway next Saturday, the same day we are. I told them we needed to know as they were right on top of our anchor. their response to that was "we know, if you need to leave let us know and we will move". The French have a reputation through out the world as people that will drop their anchor where ever they want and as close to another boat as they like. Sometimes, fenders even get thrown over the side just in case. If we had been here when they arrived, we would have asked them to move. They had been in front of us before taking off for the yard but not this close and not on top of our anchor as we came into our spot after they had already anchored. We dropped ours well astern of their boat when we came in making sure we left plenty of room incase either of us spun in the ever changing winds. Jim, our other neighbor(sits normally astern of us) came over late yesterday afternoon for a short visit. When they came in(about 6 days ago) we had had a short conversation that they knew they were a bit close but were only staying a day or so to get their ProFurl roller furling fixed. Apparently a problem with the bearings in the unit. We ran into them when we went to get our gold plated batten from Turbulence. They were pounding away on the unit trying to get it apart. Jim told me yesterday when he came over that the company decided that they couldn't spend any more time on it since they were so busy and he should just order a new one from France!! How's that for service? From what Jim told me, ProFurl has been less than helpful with suggestions on how to get the unit apart and get the bad bearing out. Why help someone when you know they will most likely buy a new one from us and we will make more money that way. The big reason Jim came over was to tell us that he was considering moving as they felt that they were still to close to us. In the time we've been in the anchorage, they haven't really come that close to us so we told him it was his choice. He asked if we thought another boat would come in and drop next to us as several had left over the last few days. My answer was "Yes". He told me he would probably move. Well, he didn't and about 1900, after the sun had gone down, another boat came in and dropped their anchor right about where Jim would have if he had moved. No big deal as while they look close, they don't really come closer when the wind shifts.

Today(Sunday) is Grenadian Train Domino day again in the afternoon. We have the generator running on the stern charging up our batteries(an everyday event) and what rain we had earlier this morning(a good bit) has now passed us over. The seat cushions from the cockpit are out drying in the sun. I forgot to bring them in when I came below last night This should get a bit of the dirt out of them.

Sunset at Prickly Bay

With all the humidity in the air, we're getting some great sunsets

Off to the vet and more

It's been a busy day starting with a trip to the local sail loft. We were going to bite the bullet and just get a new batten instead of repairing the old one. To much chance of it snapping later and ripping a hole in the sail. Cost for a 10 foot 8 inch batten--- $100US! Now I may not be up to date on the prices of battens but that just seemed quite high to me. If any of you have access to a loft, see if you can find me a price? As I wrote, she's just 10feet 8 inches long and just about 3/4 inches wide. Nothing special. Strangely, we'd seen an example of a replacement just last Friday when we stopped in. This time, we brought the sort of broken batten with us and the sales person looked at it, went into the back room where they store the battens and came out telling us they had nothing like it. We told her "You did last Friday.". Her response was,"You saw it here?". After telling her yes, she took us into the back room(with our old batten in tow) and we amazingly found one that looked almost exactly like what we had. As a matter of fact, they'd already pulled it from the rack where they were keeping the battens. Now why they would tell us they didn't have any when they clearly did is something I just don't understand other then they had to measure what we brought in and then cut the new one(tough work?)and that was more work than they wanted to do. I have no idea but it's not the first time we have run into this kind of an attitude during our cruising. It's the "I get paid the same amount whether I work or not so why work when I don't get anything out of it" attitude.

We called the vets this morning to get the OK to bring Blue in for her rabies shot since Snowshoe was getting his. The response was we have to change your appointment to 1430 from 1330 so they could get both cats in. Again, no clue as root why you can see two cats at one time and not the next. Same number of cats and same amount of minutes in an hour. But we modified our schedule and loaded both cats-one in a carrier and one in a cloth bag, climbed down into Puff and took off across Prickly Bay. We tied up to the local dock and hiked in with both kids. We were out by 1600 with a bill of just about $100US. That included four bags of new Hills Diet cat food that's supposed to be like Royal Canin, plus three year rabies shots for both kids and some other meds for Snowshoe and the exam. Guess we will see in a few weeks if Snowshoe gets stopped up again. For $100US, I think this was a much better value than the batten.
On the trip over in the dinghy, Snowshoe stuck his head out of the bag and just stared around the bay. No clue what was going through his brain. In the end, he tucked his head back into the bag and settled in for the ride. Blue was in a normal cat carrier and it was just down on the floor of the dinghy for the trip both ways. I'm sure not the most pleasant of trips. Now that we are back aboard, every time I look at her, she hisses. If she passes Snowshoe, she hisses. Her bad attitude is back in full force.
It's now Tuesday morning and winds and swells have returned in a big way. The swells started yesterday afternoon and got worse through the night. Everyone in the bay is dancing around. We heard that another boat has gone aground. That's two in two weeks. The first one blew a shackle that attached it to the mooring ball. Not sure what happened this time.
This morning, we'll be heading in to hit the markets again. We're out of lettuce for salads.

Back from shopping and it's still rocking and rolling here in the bay. Lighter boats are getting thrown all over the place. We may be heavier but we're still getting our share of the rolling though no where near as bad.

Up date about the French catamaran came into Mt. Hartman Bay(where Secret Harbour Marina is) around 1800 last night and promptly ran aground. Now we've looked at the charts carefully since we were there for quite a while and from what we've heard, this sailor didn't understand the navigation markers (red right returning) and just came straight in. With it being a full moon, we have some of the biggest tides of the season and as of now, both his pontoons are out of the water and the next high tide isn't till 1817 so it will be after the sun has gone down. Sure hope he gets it off because if not, there won't be another tide like this till next month's full moon and lots of damage can happen in that time.

It's time for a late lunch of tacos. Yea!! Tracy makes the best!
There's of the day passed with the bay still rocking and rolling. It continued through the night and is still going on now (10:00am). The French catamaran got off the reef late last night and is now tied up at the Secret Harbour Marina. No clue to the damage but you don't normally hit a reef and get off easily.
We did some hand laundry early in the morning with me concentrating on my bananas. I never leave the boat without at least two to mop up the sweat that always seems to pour off my body. I'm one sweating machine!!! There are twelve hanging off the lifelines drying as I type this.

This afternoon is another round of Grenada Trains at the bar/restaurant here in Prickly Bay. Good for a couple hours of socializing and downloading of more shows. Tomorrow, we'll be back to doing some more projects. I still have to work on the battens and stitch the main sail. It's been a bit windy over the last few days.

This last week in Grenada

16 October 2016 | Prickly Bay, Grenada
Bill/ Sunny and hot
Well, it's now Sunday(October 9th) night and we are rocking and rolling at anchor here in Prickly Bay, Grenada. The winds haven't let up and with them come swells right into the bay making poor Zephyr heave up and down by the bow and sometimes from side to side. It's down right nasty.

We spent this morning trying to straighten out the mess inside since the trip up pretty well unseated just about everything on the starboard side. With up tilted to the left for the entire trip and rocking from side to side, even items we tied down with rope came loose especially in the folksail area(just in front of the main salon. We had water jugs, ditch bags, suitcases and more dropping off the starboard side berth where they are normally kept. The "ditch" bag landed in the cat pan making it hard on the kids. Today, it was time to put things back together.

We pulled up the mattress on the stern berth to put our new air conditioner down the bilge under it. The last one we had(gave to Lobster in Trinidad) was much heavier and bigger. This one fit the space under the berth just fine leaving us plenty of room for more things. In went the water jugs, two five gallon full size jugs as well as four collapsable jugs. Add in some other things and the area is nice and packed. We even stuck in 2-42 pound bags of kitty litter. Now we have some clear space in the cabin for other things. We still have lots of cans of paint as well as varnish for out side to find places for. Not sure where all of it is going to end up.

This being Sunday, it was time for Grenada Train dominoes again. If it hadn't been for that, there was no way we would have left the boat with the swells coming into the bay at over two to three feet throwing Zephyr all over the place. It wasn't easy getting Puff in the water let alone getting the outboard off the stern and down and latched to our dinghy. We managed to make it to the dock with only a bit of water soaking our clothes. It was nice to see our friends once again. We were back at Zephyr about 1730 and had a real tough time even getting back on board. It took quite some time for Tracy to get on board as she had to hold onto the stern ladder as well as the rope to our dinghy all with Puff going up and down in the water crashing into the stern ladder as well as our Hydrovane. Salt water had coated much of the stern making it quite slippery. In the end, she finally made it and after getting the engine off(no easy feat), we hoisted Puff back on board resting her on fenders on the deck. Unlike most of the other sailboats here in Prickly Bay(as well as most other bays we have seen)we hoist the outboard off the dinghy and then hoist the dinghy back on deck. Should a storm come up, we don't want to have to have to worry about Puff getting away from us in the wind and waves. We try and take good care of her as well as her outboard motor. With out them, it would be much harder out here.

The forecast is for more winds for the next couple of days but we plan on bringing up the anchor tomorrow and seeing if we can find a better place farther inside the bay where the winds and swells will be a bit less. The only thing I can say about this windy weather is it's doing a fair job putting a charge back into the batteries when the wind spins our wind generator.

I'll let you know how tomorrow works out.

It's now Monday afternoon and we are in a new spot in Prickly Bay. We pulled up the anchor and started touring the bay. With over 150 boats in here, it's a very busy and full anchorage. We finally found a spot with a catamaran behind us and in front of us and monohull on either side. With the continued wind, we kept swinging closer to the starboard side monohull so we pulled up the anchor and slowly motored around till we found a space(011 59.596N 61 45.756W)closer to the east side of the bay and far more sheltered from the winds and swells coming in from down south. We do have boats around us but none too close and that's just fine. None are on mooring buoys so we will all swing the same in the wind making hitting each other darn near impossible. It's still cloudy and winds are about 15 knots so the DuoGen us still spinning on the stern and with us motoring around, we have enough amps in the batteries to last through the night. Tomorrow, we will be off for a shopping trip to town plus I need to stop in at Courts where supposedly they fix sewing machines. Our Sailrite machine has up and died so it needs a good tech to try and fix it. We'll be dropping it off tomorrow or brining it back if they don't work on them Guess we will see. At least it's now a good bit more stable here in our new anchorage. Yesterday, it was darn near nasty and with more bigger winds in the forecast, it was important to find a better place to stay.

The Sun has gone down and the wind has continued. That's fine as it keep letting us get some amps shoved into the batteries and they always like them. The DuoGen goes spinning on the stern as the wind comes through the anchorage. We have boats all around us now as more came in this afternoon. One bit cat came in from elsewhere in the bay. We've already seen them in at least three different places including one on a mooring buoy. Now they are back on anchor and went in to have dinner at one of the resorts along the bay. Can't imagine how much that cost them.

Tracy dragged out the Sailrite sewing machine to see if we could find out what it's problem was. It stopped working the last time she tried to use it. Under the top lid, we found a big broken piece that looks like it was made from cheap pot metal, far from the quality parts the company claims to have in it's machine. We now will have to order the part and get it shipped in but it's going to have to be at a different island as import duty here is way off the charts. The tear we got in the mainsail on the way up here will just have to be hand stitched by me and that's no big deal. Tomorrow, we will be visiting the local sail loft to get another batten for Zephyr. When we took off the sail in Trinidad, we found one was almost snapped so to avoid it tearing the sail, we left it out. We also found we'd already lost the top batten and have no clue when it went flying. We at least have a replacement for it stowed below from an earlier batten that broke long ago. That's where the leach rope let go on the mainsail. So now it's time for another batten and some stitching. All we have to do is wait for the winds to die down a bit. Fifteen knot winds is a bit much to stitch up a loose sail on deck. Since we are still waiting on our replacement ATM cards, we have some time to get things done.
It's now Wednesday and I went in and got all five of our gasoline tanks filled. We carry four 5 gallon tanks strapped to the port side attached to a big piece of rosewood we bought back in Madagascar. The original 2 X 6 snapped in half during our trip south from the Seychelles. This wood is much stronger and denser than the original. The fifth tank is strapped to the stern and used for day to day filling of the generator or the fuel tank for the outboard. It's much easier to pour and since it holds 6 gallons, when we pour in the 5 gallons from the other tanks, it leave lots of room for tilting it so it will pour better we we need to.

This afternoon was Grenada Train Dominoes again. Every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, we spend a few hours playing and getting to better know our fellow cruisers here in Grenada. Most have just cruised up and down the Windward Island chain of islands here in the Caribbean. We filled them in on our travels to get here and what we went through. We were back on board by 1730 and Puff was stowed nicely on deck.

We picked up from Secret Harbor Marina our new debit cards and got them activated. Tomorrow, after re epoxying one of our slightly split battens and going up the mast to again check our our masthead anchor/nav/flashing light, I'll be taking Puff to shore and hiking over to the bank to see if these work. I'll let you know how it goes.

It's now Saturday the 14th and we are progression slowly. Tracy came down with something(no clue as to what) and it left her quite listless. We stopped working on projects for a day or so so she could get some rest. No sleep at night will make you not feel too well. Thursday, we sat and read and slept. Friday was another day for going to the store and seeing if our new ATM cards work. I've made lots of calls to our bank trying to get things resolved. I used one of the new card(now have three of them for each of us) and I finally found one that would work. We managed to get some more money out of the ATM. Off the the grocery store for a few more supplies and back to Zephyr. The rest of the day was spent reading and resting. Tracy still wasn't back to normal.

Today, Saturday, I went up the mast to check the anchor/nav/flashing light. I took off the connector wire and screwed it back in. All seems fine. No chafed wires or connections for anything we have up there. I put some lubricant on all the assorted blocks we have up there and had Tracy move the block for the spinnaker line back and forth so the lube coated all the bearings. I checked all the shrouds and connections as well as the different steps, lights, and spreaders. All looked just fine. I've now turned on the anchor light and we will see if it comes on when the sun goes down. It's on a photoelectric cell that makes it come on after the sun goes down and it get dark. Sure hope it works as a new one runs about $400US! Right now, we have a flashing strobe we bought in Thailand at the bow that flashes white and blue. Add on some of the solar powered yard lights around the lifelines and we are quite well lit at night. Just nothing at the top of the mast.

We thought about epoxying and fiberglassing the split batten but decided not to. If it broke, it could tear a hole in the sail and that's not a good thing. I'll be asking on Monday net to see if anyone has a spare out there and if not, head in to the sail loft and get a spare. We've got a busy day for Monday since Snoeshoe has an appointment with the vet. We are down to our last bag of his special diet of high fiber food. It's done a great job at keeping him "regular" for the last two years. Sure don't want him to go back to the way he was. Really no clue as to why we can only purchase cat food with a prescription from a vet instead of simply walking into a pet store and getting it there. Better profit margin for the vet? It's not like it's a drug, it's just food! We'll be getting another 12 bags if we can find it. Sure hope they don't have to order it. We'd like to get out of here. Hurricane season is just about over.

It's now Saturday night and when Tracy walked forward on deck, she looked up and the anchor light was ON!! No real clue as to why as the last time it failed, I unscrewed the screws on the switch in the main cabin for it and it worked just fine(for a while). This time, when I did the same thing, nothing happened but when I went up the mast and screwed and rescrewed the connection there, it now works just fine. Absolutely no clue as to what the heck is going in but if it fails again, I can go up the mast and maybe fix it. Lots cheaper than a new one for $350US. Guess we will see how long this "fix" works. I'll let you know. Right now, I'm just glad it working though we do look light a light beacon with an anchor light at the top of the mast, a blue and white flashing light at the bow and two solar powered yard lights woven into the stern netting. Look high or look low, you'll see us.

It's now Sunday(October 17th) afternoon and we just finished Grenada Trains for today. Have some social time and will be heading back to Zephyr by 1800. Tomorrow, off we go with Snowshoe to see the vet at the University to get more "high fiber" food for both kids. Only Snowshoe needs it but Blue gets to suffer along with him. I'll let you know how that goes.
Sorry about being so long between posts but we have to go to shore to get internet and sometimes that's just not possible
