Also known as rain.
Arrived Saturday night, climbed the fence to get in, and on board we were.
Smell indicated something with the brown water tank was amiss.
Engine wouldn’t start because the only thing the starter motor did was give a simple click sound.
Brown water tank was just over full. After some pumping away and a lot of airing out that should be fine.
Start motor had to be in an inaccessible spot. Didn’t get much further than getting the cover off. Tried again next day, this time with some light tapping on the side and a splash of WD40 and a miracle happened: it turned over.
So, we are on schedule, if there was one.
Already have two sails on as well.
Now hosting this on two domains.

After a rough overnight arrived in Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda.
Another repair to be made, but with ID underway on that.
Yesterday at five the riggers finished the installation of the new fore stay.
In the evening the mechanic got my outboard running.
Bought new halyard, gib sheets and furling line.
Got the new alternator installed yesterday evening. Engine all in running condition now. But the rigging ship is too busy, at best on Saturday they might be able to help me out.
