Shouldn't be an engine in that boat. Maybe they installed one?

Re: A delivery.. again.. lmao

good luck!
i'm off to singapore this time next week to meet the ship that is bringing the cat i delivered to palma 6weeks ago,then a run up to bangkok.

i hope you have got enough power to run that auto pilot,might be an idea to disconnect from shore power and give the batteries a bit of a test to see how well they hold their charge, if they have been standing for a while.
cheers alex

Re: A delivery.. again.. lmao

Nice crew! Have a safe crossing. Too bad we won't be in Antigua until April, we would have enjoyed a meet up ... but if you detour to Grenada give us a shout.

Bolt an Aries or Fleming on the back and have a safe trip, and dont forget all the little bits to bypass the propane solenoid if all of the electrons mutiny at once. But I am sure you will remember that one. best of Luck. ______Grant.
