Busy few days . Mainsail has gone for repair , Batteries checked and will need replacing soon . Engine and genset serviced and new boiler fitted; not without problems since the manufacturer, Quick of Italy had set the default on the thermostat too high and it blew a pipe . Still most boat bits done and it is now mainly provisioning for the off next weekend .Weather has been appalling very cold and windy so still feeling lucky to be here . Strange because some of us are in shorts and tee shirts and others in winter woollies
