A dirty problem in Culatra
15 June 2021 | Vilamoura
Our stay in the relaxed atmosphere of Culatra was abruptly ended with the discovery of a blocked holding tank. No pump out at Olahao marina and only by appointment at Ayamonte (Spain), the next scheduled port of call. So the only option was to backtrack to Vilamoura which has a pump out as well as other marine services if needed. We failed to fix the problem ourselves but luckily Algarve Marine Services had somebody free this morning who could clear the blockage with a marine hoover and so we have working facilities on board once more. Also a chance to fill up with food, water and diesel and take a shower (much needed after playing with holding tank pumps). PS. The Culatra clams were not responsible for the blockage!
