It Always Happens in Threes
Yesterday was just one of those days!
The weather was excellent and the skies were blue, but 3 jobs went wrong.
We went off first thing to see Julien the pump expert, but he couldn't locate the spare seals for our Climma Galepa raw water air con pump.
So we will probably have to get the bits directly from Italy.
When we got back I replaced half a dozen teak deck plugs near the rear hatch.
Then whilst cleaning up I threw a couple of buckets of sea water over the area to clean up.
But I did not check the side port side hatch first which was open.
Mandy spent hours patiently cleaning up my mistake.
The third problem was that the new washing machine refused to pump out.
We worked out that the drain outlet was too high.
It took us a couple of hours to fix it.
We removed the machine and the rear of the cupboard.
We then removed a couple of meters of pipe and re-sited the drain stopcock.
It took a couple of attempts but hopefully it all seems to be ok now.
So today's plan is to tidy up and move on up to Grand Anse a beautiful bay 3 hours north,
