|Yesterday Ellinor and I had to complete tasks neither one was to much excited about.|
I had to go down under the boat to check why we have a vibration in the propeller shaft at cruising speed, which I hopefully found, a line from a net or something tangled and worked it's way into the exit of the shaft. Since we left the diving equipment in Sweden (due to lack of space) I had to skindive and get new breath in between. Even water that is 20 degrees will eventually get cold.
Ellinor was winched up the mast and the reason we have pointofview pictures from her is that we stuck a camera to her
head so she could film the rig so we could discuss how everything looks.
The rig is one of the most vulnerable equipment on board and should always be checked before leaving for a passage.
Everything looked fine (No, you do not use tape to keep it together, tape is used to protect the sails from pins etc).
