After a quick sprint across the Gulf Stream and a fraught 18 hours motoring blind in shallow waters during the night then thick fog the sun finally came out and we found ourselves back in the blue waters of the Bahamas. The trip was eventful in that a fuel line blockage killed the engine and 2 hours was spent laying across a very hot engine in a rolling sea sucking diesel through the pipes......needless to say Allan was sick......oh the joys of cruising!
With a strong wind forecast for several days we’ve headed into Green Turtle Cay in the Abacos and picked up a mooring.......within minutes we saw our first turtle swim by! We cleared into the Bahamas at the island’s only town, New Plymouth, a charming little spot with lots of history. We plan to hang out here for a few days, perhaps weeks. There’s lots of jobs do be done on board so we won’t be bored.
