Arriving Rum Cay we had no charging from the engine, and the no charging lamp was lit. The orignal alternator was put in, and now it charges again. We left Rum cay for Turks and Caicos, ca 180nm motorsailing overnighter.
We had a big 960ft containership at around 1nm behind us - the AIS makes for safer navigation in this regard.
Later we saw a big turtle sleeping, I think we woke it, and Kristen got a 23lbs (11kg) mahi mahi west of Samana Cay while trawling. Fun yum. The first bit served as sesame teriaky dolphin with rice and sweet peas.
Night passage went fine, alas we woke up to lots of birdshit on our port side. None on the sails.
Arrived in Leeward marine - need to clear in tomorrow.
