Had lunch at the Ship Inn after paying for mooring at harbour master's office. Spent afternoon cleaning up, removing a large wad of seaweed from the toilet flush supply piping and codging together a split pin for the outboard. The tool kit and spares on board is woefully inadequate and water seems to be filling the bilges slowly. Robert & Luke spent the afternoon crabbing but without luck.
A good day's sailing.
