Subic Redux

24 April 2013

Sweatin' in Subic once again! Boy I did not miss this, but here I am again, boat torn apart (at least in this case it's someone else's boat), head in a hatch, butt in the air, smelling diesel fumes. That's when I'm not on deck in "Tarzan Hot" conditions, sweating way more than I can possibly replace by normal means. And yet, it's all pretty routine stuff, more nuisance than a real problem; no mysteries; just boat issues a prudent person needs to address before continuing with the next leg of our voyage. There's a couple more pieces to find, a couple more jobs to do, fuel and provisioning; but I'm considering, with the able assistance of Ray Wolfe and his guys Rollie and Patrick, the possibility MV Shearwater may get out of here Friday, 26 April.

I've enjoyed running into people I know from MV Mandarin and MV DavidEllis' visits here '05 and '07-08. It appears things are (economically) looking up a bit, and hopefully that's a good thing.

I need to review charts, sailing directions and tide tables and choose between two outlets from the Philippine Islands into the Pacific. From here, the weather I've glanced at looks pretty benign, but typhoon season is upon us, and it's really time to go. We'll be checking with our weather guy, Lee Chesneau: http://www.marineweatherbylee.com/ for the official 'Okey-Dokey'.
