Thursday 13th June 2013

Well we have had the fridge guy out so many time we have almost lost count, he is starting to becoming a permanent fixture on this boat.
And yeap we have found out it has a leak in the lines, but just can't find it.
So we will have a little gas bottle permanently attached and once a week or so just put in a little more gas, this is as best we can do other than buying a brand new fridge, we looked up these online to see how much and they are well on $3,000 so that's off the cards for now at least.

The shroud that looks iffy is looking like it needs replacing, we have been trying to get one of the guys to come out to the boat but so far have not seen any, so The Captain, has taken photos and he will go show them and see what they think.

But we have managed to cross of almost all the stuff on the list, other than a few more leaks that are driving us crazy.

We had a lot of rain yesterday , which was good in finding the worse leaks, out of the 13 windows only five are leaking, The Captain is very happy about this as I was trying to get him to reseal all of them.
The other major leak in our cabin, which is coming in from the base of the davits, well The Captain sealed this up really well, and yeap it still leaks, we have now found out it is coming from the bolts, so late into the night he was on deck unscrewing while I was on our bunk holding the nut in place, we still have one screw to do and then hopefully that will be fixed.

We are that close to being ready to move on, but the weather is still against us, we really do have itchy feet, and want out of hear, at least going around the other side of the island will be nice, as our fridge guy, has told us there is a beach there where a lot of sea turtles are, this will be so nice.

Well tomorrow is another day.
