Hot Again - 28C
After a day of rest, we spent this morning installing the rest of the solar panel supports, and the first two panels have been installed.

The SSB radio has been beautifully installed and is working perfectly. Now I need to learn how to use it.

I spent three hours dealing with US and Canadian officials trying to de-register and re-register my new EPIRB device. (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon). This handy device sends an emergency signal (when activated by me, or when placed in the water) which sets off the search and rescue teams which ensure safety at sea.
Hopefully we will never need to use it. Thank you Bruce and Andre for assisting with the EPIRB registration.

I am hoping to have the boat in the water within the next two days, and then we'll start testing all of the onboard mechanical systems: winches, toilets, stoves, engines, generator, sails, pumps, fridge and freezer, lights, instruments, etc, etc,etc..............

The weather is hot and blue skies all day. We hope that it will cool down somewhat, but we'll need wind from the south to cross over to the Bahamas soon...

All the best!

ps. The photo is the EPIRB device
