Life in the yard

Sally | ETA made us hot and humid
We made it through ETA with no serious issues. We did have some water intrude, both of our hatches were covered but both of them leak in heavy rain. The tropical system has left the air hot and humid which makes working tough. Both of us are sore and cranky after not using muscles needed to do boat work for 5 months. And here I thought I was keeping fit with walking and doing weights and riding my bike. Guess not hmmm. We’ve brought a few loads up from the condo and are slowly getting things stored and stowed. We took nearly everything off last spring. We finally worked up the nerve to turn on the fridge…… she was recharged last spring…… it was a no go. It didn’t get cool at all. We knew we were on borrowed time with it after 27 years. We’ll limp along with a cooler until we can spec out the unit and see if we can find a replacement with the same footprint. The evaporator is inside the fridge which is integral to the hull fo the boat. The condenser is in the starboard side lazarette in the cockpit. It’s a cozy fit to say the least and not a job for the claustrophobic. Stay tuned for updates and I’m sure colorful language to follow on the topic.
