We stayed in Bay Fin until yesterday. Got a lot of work done including waxing the whole boat including the hull. As on-going maintenance that is particularly important to protect from the UV. We also pumped the bilge full of water to function test the bilge pumps. We have five of them, two manual gusher pumps that are operated from the nav station or the helm, one �"main�" electric pump that has an integral float switch so that it turns on automatically (it is also hooked up to a cycle counter so we can tell if it has run at all from the cockpit), one very small diaphragm pump that we use to clean the little bit of water that accumulates from rain or?? And one REALLY big electric pump that has a 2 ½�" outlet. We installed that along with a high level alarm a couple of years ago after we had the through hull beak on the charter boat in the Grenadines and we had to use a wooden plug to stop the leak�...(NOT our boat!) Yesterday we went into Little Current to provision and then went back to Heyward Island where this morning, we are heading out towards Kingston. Not much wind expected but we are on our way!

The Photo is Laurie standing on the LCBO Dock in Killarney a few days ago. We stopped in to provision and had fish and chips for lunch next door which Killarney is known for.
