Before heading for Liapari (which is only about 25 miles from Gizo) I am doing some repairs. Was able to fix the radiator leak with the gasket material from Polaris. That worked out great. While I was at sea, I had a lot of trouble to start the engine. But that problems seems to have gone now. It was a probably a result of the engine overheating and the radiator water boiling. Now the engine starts within 2 seconds of cranking, like it used to, but there seems to be a heavier knocking noise than before. The guy at Liapari might have a look at that.
Today I am working on the main sail, trying to get the leech reinforced.
The anchorage here in Gizo is nice, there are a few other yachts here, and it is well protected against waves and wind.
Maybe before the weekend I will be leaving for Liapari, then I will be out of touch until I return to Gizo.
