C&C
We motored again for the short trip round to Kiladha. The forecast had another storm in the afternoon and we preferred to get the hook down before that arrived. Luckily it turned out to be mild compared to the previous deluge.

Both these instances demonstrated that we have a leak in the saloon windows. We knew there was one point where water was getting in but during these downpours we found another window leaking. We have one kit to re-bed the frame but not two.......which one shall we do and how do we seal the other for the winter?

Kiladha is where Splice will be lifted for the winter and we spent a couple of days on the hook here getting to know the town and introducing ourselves at the boatyard. It always helps to show your face and we also got their list of approved tradespeople, given the normal long list of things to fix that will come in handy.

Kiladha has a large anchorage, mostly shallow around 3-4 metres deep

We spent a pleasant evening with Colin and Nicole of 'Loch Fyne Lass', friends of Feisty who had told us to say hello, chatting for so long that we cancelled the idea of eating ashore and whipped up a quick pasta dish for dinner. In the end we didn't eat ashore in Kiladha, a treat for the next time when we return for the lift out in a couple of weeks.

We only stayed two nights in the bay this time as we had to pop back to Porto Heli where we duly collected our new fenders. Now the First Mate is worrying about us scratching their shiny new plastic! (they are sacrificial inflated buoys to protect the gel-coat of the boat so they will inevitably take punishment)
