Beware what you wish for!
Oi vey, what do they say about the girl who's all dressed up with nowhere to go?? Well, we're all dressed up, fridge fixed, all jobs done, fresh food stowed away, lots of places to go - and we have a leak.
I'm a great believer in seawater remaining outside the boat, not inside - in fact I feel quite strongly about it!
It's only a little leak - well, about a litre every 30 mins - but it appears to be a weld, probably wear and tear as a result of that smash all those years ago down in Nantucket. And until we've had it examined and checked - and fixed - I guess we're going nowhere!
So, the Mathegan Shipyard are hopefully coming over sometime tomorrow to have a look, and we'll have to be hauled out again so that they can bring along a mobile aluminium welding set-up and do the grinding and make the repairs on dry land. Unfortunately this is Canada Day long weekend - so nothing really will happen before Tuesday. And of course we've given our rental car back so we're a little stymied for travelling around.
Oh well, I wanted the time to finish an edit, so there you go - beware what you wish for!
