Aft locker water leak. Still nothing found so today removed the 3 screws that hold the toerail down that goes into locker. Cleaned out the holes and rebeded the screws. Also found were 2 filled holes with sealant. Sealant removed and water put in hole in dropped a little the other stayed full, no tell tale drips below therefore probably unlikely they are the culprits. Both holes cleaned up, dried and filled with epoxy. Wait until next wet, windy sail to see if any improvement in the reducing of the water leak.
One of the straps on the bimini broke. John used his sewing skills to join the 2 pieces of strap together.
We have a vague plan that we are going to Grenada next. We will need to get a PCR test before we go and get a negative result and will be on our way. Probably test next Monday as not sure how long takes results to come back and we need it to be no longer than 72 hours old when we arrive although I have heard they will accept up to 7 days. Watch this space.
