Title: Working on a Saturday

Today we started the morning with Ellinor climbing the mast and make a thoroughly riggcheck.
Then I bleeded the Fisher Panda generator and got it started with new fuel lines. It all went well.
Then Greg came and finished the job on the fridge so now it works.
And now I just took a shower and it does not matter, back to being as wet as before... probably 35 degrees C
Had a lunch and will go over to Miss My and work as a line handler till tomorrow night, then I will leave them on the Pacific Side and get back to Colon.
Monday we haul out Salsa and we have a hard 5 days of work in front of us.
Lubricating propeller, change some anodes, repaint the boat with four coats.


Gor an interesting question, what does it cost to transit the canal? 700 USD for a boat like our (they measure her to 49,6feet)
Then comes an agent fee if you use one, we do, and he costs us 300 USD incl. all services, also tires, lines etc.
The best thing with having an agent is that we do not have to mess with bureaucracy, we do not impose a bond and if something happens in the canal he will assist us.

Will be back Monday if we have time.
