St Lucia - 25 February

Sat 25 Feb 2006 17:17
We have spent three days in the boat yard at Rodney Bay, where we have had the underside of the boat rubbed down and re-antifouled, as well as doing numerous small jobs.  Rob from Whitehaven had advised us to have our hull painted a different colour as there is a theory that whale attacks are more common on boats with white undersides. 
I am currently waiting for Keoma's propellor to be re-assembled so that the boat can be launched.   We plan to sail to Martinique later today.  However, if things take much longer our departure may have to be delayed until tomorrow.
