Arrived Rodney Bay Saturday evening after dark and anchored off.Cleared customs yesterday and into marina this morning.Fast beat in fresh northeasterly from Bequia.Sad to have left Bequia so soon but a failure of the genset meant moving on for repair.
The water pump on the genset[Paguro] seems to have failed again shorting the stator.Cosidering that the set is only 3years old and had the same problem last year when all parts were replaced this seems a bit much.Have to bite the bullet and repair since we will need watermaker and battery charger for the Pacific.
We will probably change crew whilst we are here,Mike returning to Wales
