Today was a day of fixing stuff. While the gang took a ferry to Sointula a Finnish Communist settlement started 100 years ago. It was a draft dodgers dream during the Vietnam war.
While the gang did their visit I was busy working with Graham MacDonald to take the fuel filters apart from stem to stern. We found no contamination and determined that the zero boost mode in the starboard engine was caused by fletus beams from the moon.
I also got the radio fixed in the dinghy and had a diver inspect the hull propellers, Niad Stabilizers, shafts and rudders finding no damage. Phew!!
In addition I got the KVH Sat TV to work, bought a new 5 gallon bucket and got a small step ladder for my crew member. What a wonderful exciting successful day.
Tomorrow if the weather and sea condition are good we will leave at 5 AM to cross the dreaded Cape Caution & Queen Charlotte Straights with the goal of anchoring in Fish something somewhere.
