After 20 minutes there was a stream of saltwater coming from the inside of the isolation. Obviously there had to be something more serious. I was now alone onboard since Björn left in the morning and there was a gale expected from the north in a couple of days.Northerly gales is the worst posibble direction for this little harbour with all swell from the Aegean Sea entering the bay. A crippled duck trapped in a badly protected harbour without engine. Damn ! I called Ricardo again who was on a diving job but promised to do everything posibble to find one of the 2 persons on the island who could weld stainless. Not an easy task during Greek easter holidays. It was just to wait...
