Goodbye to Nanny Cay.

We are still in Nanny Cay but we are in the water and all is fine. Just letting the packing in the stern tube settle and we are off in the morning.
Quite an experience but we are better for it and we now know how the prop shaft works. In fact you could say we are experts.
The basic problem was we were fitted a composite cutlass bearing which was too tight and not the brass replacement which we have now got.
All is now turning sweetly and no leaks through the prop shaft
Everybody has been really helpful and even the yard team came in on Good Friday to lift us back in. The cost of all these haul outs has gone to the engineers

We were going for the record of miles covered in the travel hoist. I hope Maymio doesn't mind all this movement around.

Anyway we had Paul and Sylvie from Catou to keep us company before they leave to put the boat on a tanker to go home.
Tomorrow we are heading off to rendezvous with Vulcan Spirit for our our passage to the Dominican Republic.

We are now in the mood to get some miles under our belt and get out of the BVI's.
