Malcolm has been doing boat maintenance while we are here in Cartagena. So far he has sanded and re-oiled the cockpit teak, touched up some varnish, and stripped, stained, and re-varnished the hatch screens. All this in addition to repairing the autopilot, calibrating the compasses, replacing the inverter, replacing the VHF antenna, and servicing four winches.
And of course daily life goes on; groceries, laundry, cleaning, topping up our fuel, reprovisioning. We hope to be ready to head East in the next two weeks. Now all we need is a good weather window.
