We still are having a hard time. 2 days ago our steering pilot broke down and blocked our rudder (clutch malfunction). So we're steering by hand now, which is tough has the weather conditions and see state are pretty rough. Every day we need to hose a few buckets of water out of the boat, so everything starts to feel damped. Tonight Bert has brused his rib during a gibe, he's hurt but he's still functioning. We're still going strong.
