Big day today. I got the water maker running. Not great yet, but it's drinkable.
20 gph @ 348ppm for you techno weenies, Kinda crude right now, but now that it is working I can fill in the details, like where to put the water and how to get it there.
Did two load of laundry with my "free" water. Don't ask how much the parts cost.
Things learned today - People who want your money, will take your garbage.
Paul Left on Thursday, Mike and Bill went home on Friday. I am am finally alone here. Trying to air out the boat and collect all the laundry. After 2 and one half months, 12 different crew members and many miles, the boat smells like a locker room. Things are starting to rust (I keep a can WD40 on the cockpit table), you have to bribe people to take your garbage, cotton never dries, but i am here.
I am trying to get the lay of the land here from a cruisers perspective and not as a tourist.. I can do tee shirts but where do I do heavy towels. Where to fill propane. What about mail, packages. Cheapest shopping. If I save the rinse water I can use it for the next load of dirty clothes. (water is .16 a gallon) Better get busy on getting the water maker working.
I have dragged anchor here 3 times in the last 3 days, same crappy mud as Sodus, I am in 7 feet of water and 100 feet of chain, what gives.
But the rum is cheap and I am sweating my ass off.....how cool is that.
Hope you all had a good and peaceful Thanksgiving.
I have added some pictures of the last leg of our trip to the gallery.
Enjoy... we did
