OK, we tend to look at worse case scenarios and anchor
out, 2 weeks ago the wind
freshened to 20knots making our bay a lee shore the NAVTEX was saying it would get stronger so we moved, within a half hour it was 45knots plus....
loved it sitting up top watching the waves as we slow punched to gain the LEE of an island..
About a week ago we noticed a chill so agree there for sure, we are forced to stay in CROATIA
as our REGO isn't finished yet, 'tis one of the problems of buying
a foreign boat all the paperwork is in AUSTRIAN, so every document must be translated and notatted which is even harder in a country that speaks CROATIAN.....
We have some repairs
to do on our anchor roller which i'll finish removing today, we will take it back to Australia
on Wednesday and repair it there. We are going back for a fortnight.
We will stay at MILNA Marina which is very cheap
and fit LITHIUM batteries, solar
, windgen and assoc controllers. I also want to put a cone or standpipe under where the chain peels from the winch
into the locker so the anchor can be retrieved quicker, it's a pain in the arse having to keep knocking the stack down..
We have ordered a Code Zero
and Twin running headsails that both fit the existing headfoil and will allow 'TRADEWIND SAILING'. They furl together and are 6.5oz to give lift
... Tasker is doing them.
Happy with the boat just need more flexibility to just having 2 sails
Are you parking up in SPAIN
somewhere? I don't do cold real well thank god for the ERSHEPER HEATERS on board...
