  • Scrubbed over the side with long handed scrubber. The top sides are a mess, goose neck barnacles near the stern – huge & will not come off below the water line.
  • Took out life raft & the unbolted life raft locker & removed. Then cleaned & sorted out the contents. A yucky job now completed & all back together again.
  • I am going to be out of methylated spirits (used for priming stove) months ahead of schedule despite my conservation.
  • Isle de Trinidad starboard side on horizon. I have passed by Trinidad 7 times over the past 11 years.
