Title: Good behaviour(Boring stuff for duckowners)

In the beginning of the season I had some annoying problems with failing floatswitches/overfilling of grey water sump and leakage from hot water plumbing in the engine room.Since my last repair in Gibraltar Dora Mac has behaved very well and only presented some minor problems.

The aft engine room fan failed while on passage in the English Channel but thanks to Randals well sorted sparepart stores it could be replaced with a new identical spare.

While on passage of the North Sea the AIS transponder suddenly died. Faultsearch revealed a failing solderingjoint in an inline fuse easily fixed by replacing with a spare.

Allthough easy in this case, I´m not so happy with all these inlinefuses. When they fail they are sometimes impossible to find
