All jobs done

31 May 2012 | St. Peter's inlet
We have completed all our little jobs to get the Hawk back to 100%. Hawk did very well on her first passage of the season, with nothing broken.

The only significant thing was that we must have had some slime growing on the top of the starboard water tank over the winter. The water coming out of the taps was clean, but the water filters before the tap were clogging up with organic looking stuff. So, we dumped the water out of both tanks, cleaned them, went on the dock for a couple hours and flushed them and then refilled them. The filters now look good as I pump water thru them. Otherwise we just had the routine first passage maintenance and jobs - change the filters on the engine, check the hydraulic level on the autopilot, and laundry.

We will probably sit at anchor here for another week or so. It's still a spring weather pattern here in Nova Scotia with a lot of easterly winds. And I have good Skype here, which is useful as I have a few tasks to complete related to being on the investigative panel for the Ensenada race incident.
