Reinstalling radar and meeting with Parents

13 September 2008 | Nynshamn
Anders, the Yanmar mechanic, had a look at the engine issue, and concluded:

1. That the installation was not quite professionally made
2. That this was not serious enough to keep us from sailing back south and use the engine, and;
3. He gave me a few useful hints as to how a could address the problems during the upcoming winter season.

Good; I wo'nt torture you with more talking about this.

My parents came down here from Gvle, to meet us and we had a very nice time during Friday-Saturday including two very good dinners at the restaurant 15 meters from the bow of Rde Orm. This was a bit funny, since Dad asked me to have a look at this restarurant before they arrived in the afternoon and we walked around the whole town center before we realized it was the one right at the dock...

My parent also brought the radar, that after it's repair was sent to them, since it wasn't ready in time for our departure in early July. In Saturday morning, I hoisted Isabelle up the mizzen mast to reinstall the dome, after I had plugged the 14 different cables back in place.
