A good night's rest and a fresh start to a blue sky day. Views over the town
only to be enjoyed from the boat . there was work to be done! First on the
list being the port wheel chain. New stainless steel fitted after much
effort BUT the tensioning screws too short! A visit to the local (small)
chandlers produced marginally longer bolts to enable connection but longer
still would be better. one to trace tomorrow. The shore power connection
insisted on tripping the boat fuse (even though supposedly 230V and 50Hz).
Engine run for battery charge instead. Sundowners and late evening beers
on-board as the sun set over Pico.
Position posting at 18:00 Mid-Atlantic time (GMT) 27/5 (no change)!
