Planning to leave later today. I'll go to the boat this morning prepare a few things like fixing the liferaft by the transom, sort out the SSB radio then come back for lunch with Jackie.
Yesterday I wired the electric cockpit pump to the third battery down below. Also fixed a third solar panel to charge this third battery which should power a second bilge pump located down below. I am carrying a further two solar panels still in their packaging in case any of the others get damaged.
There are a number of things to be sorted out during this passage. Storage being the main one. Playing with the radar will be another.
