Ready for to untie the lines

Hi friends

Wow that have been awesome days here in Richards Bay, bucket list almost empty - which is a big relieve. It seems that almost everything is working the way it should. Let me just show you what we did in the last couple of days :                                                                                                      - Installing an additional chart plotter in the cabin                                                                               - Mounting a new water tap in the kitchen (awesome and will save with the spray function tons of water)                                                                                                                                                     - Fixing the bottom and waterproofed the keel - so far she is dry like a desert.                                  - Maintain the sail drive                                                                                                                          - Buying cherry cans for additional 125 liter of diesel                                                                            - Buying food for weeks                                                                                                                      - Bought a new fishing gear (my lord it was really expensive) but they were talking from fighting with a marlin for hours                                                                                                                       - Figured out that Richards Bay because of the Xmas-season is running out of gas, no gas refilling so far                                                                                                                                      - Replaced the shower-head and shower hose in the bathroom                                                              - Checking the satellite connection and set ups the deal with Meteogib which will observing me and give me some weather advice                                                                                                     - Spoken to locals how to sail until the northern end of Madagascar.                                              - Happy was cleaning the boat today
