Bonjour Caduceus - welcome back to life
Date 2200 Monday 30 January 2012
A Monday morning flight from
Gary and his wife Greta have been keeping a careful eye on the boat in our absence. It was nevertheless a relief to find it in good order after four months closed up. The remainder of Monday and all of Tuesday were spent de-winterising the systems and getting everything working again. Cleaning the decks off was completed in the dark but the result made me feel that I was turning Caduceus back into a working operation.
All of the work was greatly assisted by unusually warm daytime temperatures; the diesel heating was appreciated when dusk fell and the air temperature plummeted.
Definitely no catering notes at this stage; nothing significant to
report, chef/mate being in the rear party in
