Relaxing the sunshine
02 February 2009 | HopeTown Abacos
still blowing with rain forecast tomorrow.
A lovely day!
The wind continues, so we've spent a quiet day reading our extensive book collection and doing odd jobs on the boat.
This morning I found a small allan screw set screw on the rear deck. Upon further investigation, it turned out to have vibrated out of my new solar panel supports..... further study showed that most of the screws needed attention....
Removing the bimini canvass revealed that the new stainless steel bows are starting to rust at the edges...
Super clean Louise jumps to the rescue!
We spent four hours cleaning and waxing the hardware and relaxing at the same time.... a wonderful way to spend a day (after doing two loads of laundry and having fresh water showers at the marina this morning).
A quick dinghy ride across the harbour to the internet cafe (bar) and then back to the boat in time to join our neighbours for wine and cheese on their new boat as the sun approaches the yard arm!
Life's a bitch and then you die!
