Murphy's Law-Or Always be Prepared.
22 August 2016 | Kotronas
We left the beach scene after 9:30 this morning headed to Port Kayio. Remember the old saying that everything happens in threes. Our three events-The pin came out of the halyard shackle as we were preparing to hoist the main. It was found in the folds of the main sail-whew we said (we have no spares). Next we went to wash dishes while underway, and no water! We had just had the fun water run-we should have at least 60 gallons-nope. The tank was dry as a bone. That new water heater we put in at the beginning of our trip-it blew a hose. We didn't turn off the water pump while under sail and we lost all our water. Mike as usual-who can fix everything-had it fixed in no time. But we changed out heading to Kotrona because we were sure we could get water there. However it would be by dingy. We collected all out empty water bottles, our five gallon jugs and found a water spigot. We collect 76 liters of water returned to the boat and filled the tack. Our third and final event for the day was the ladder broke-the only one we have and the one we have been saying for years we should replace-it is now going to be replaced-it has been rigged to limp its way into our last few days. Yes, always be prepared-prepared that on an old boat things will break, things will go wrong, things will need adjustments. Be prepared that these things will happen and there is always a solution, whether one you intended or a new creative way revealed for you.
At Kotranas we set a stern anchor to avoid rolling with the waves.
