Our local restaurant with free wifi is closed today and tomorrow so we’re sitting at a picnic table in the restaurant’s backyard, using their wifi signal which, fortunately, they don’t shut off when they’re closed.
The weather is still looking promising for a departure tomorrow morning. If it’s like today, the fog should lift by about 1000 or 1030. The flood tide is from 0800 to 1420 or so so we have a nice big window.
Today we got most of our chores done. Still have a couple to do when we get back to the boat, but they should be no problem. Checked on my engine alarm and found that it’s set up perfectly to have any water that gets into the engine compartment sit on top of the switch and short it across. I got it all dried up (I think) so I need to make some kind of shield. Obviously I also need to do a better job of waterproofing the cockpit sole so that water can’t get down below.
Man, is it cold here! Not as windy as Newport but colder. And foggy. Haven’t seen the sun since we got here.
Probably won’t get another blog entry written if we head out tomorrow morning, and, as we’re hoping to go straight through, be aware that there may be blog silence for the next 5-7 days.
Wish us better luck than last time.
