Well, remember that we bought a new dinghy in St. Martin? We have been hauling two dinghies around with us since then but with an agreement to sell our old dinghy to Da Life our two-dinghy life is (happily) about to come to an end. We lifted the new dinghy onto our bow for the crossing from St. Martin and after three weeks of sitting in Marigot harbour it will be good to give its bottom a scrub before we drop it back in the water. We'll reinstall the engine and then clean up the old Carib before handing it over to Rick tomorrow. Very pleasantly we have made arrangements to meet up at The Bight on Norman Island since Rick is down on vacation on Da Life, which he and his wife co-own with Jay and Debbie.
|Farewell to our old Caribe. But I bet things will be jus' fine on De Life!|
|All squeaky clean again, well almost... And water so clear you can see the keel and rudder.|
|Panels in their old position, but too angled for our usual position at anchor.|
|New plackets on top, ready to catch more rays, once we swing the boom to the side.|
|Dyneema and my practice splice, now just 11 more to go.|
