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
So, what remains is the second part of food, the drinks and then....yep and then we are ready to leave. I think it will be Friday or Saturday. Keep you guys posted !
