Of course, in early morning, it should be a wee one..................
About to have a well deserved pre dinner drink. Cast iron stomach here, (never had any queasiness except in a car and weirdly enough I can get violently car sick, go figure!), I just avoid alcohol during blows to keep my wits about me in case needed
The drink is well deserved as I have just snorkelled and dived to inspect the anchor
. It is a "hobby" of mine. I know, I know, sounds odd, but cruisers get a little strange when they have been at sea a while LOL. I set the anchor
this time using 2000 revs for a full 20 seconds with the forecast
in mind (usually only 10 sec). After setting, the roll bar was fully visible and the shank not quite straight. 24 hours later nothing had changed a scrap. Its interesting to see what a 35-40 knot
blow will do. Its so very terrain dependent, sometimes the roll bar has disappeared completely.
Anyway, still have limes on board so Ti'Punch coming up - French friends introduced me to this vice earlier this year
