We finally have our new baby at home. It was a tough sail home from Tampa, four days of into the wind sailing or should I say motor sailing.
I still need to get used to the heat and sun but other than that it was a smooth run.
There were a few hiccups of course. We had a mega diesel leak on the first day with diesel flowing over the salon floor. Luckily we have a pretty handy skippy on board and within an hour the problem was temporary resolved.
The fridge and freezer also crapped itself on the second night. The generator needs a lot of love. Showers don’t drain. Other then a few leaks we were ship shape.
Carl even thought he’d try his luck catching us dinner and I was quite surprised when he hauled in a live one and not a dirty old boot.
I faced stern screaming while he repeatedly hit it on the head the winch handle. The bloody thing wouldn’t die!
I’m not too sure what a tuna looks like on the inside but it had weird worm things in it. Better google it. We fed it to the sharks thinking its not a good time to get food poisoning.
The highlights of the trip would definitely have to be the phosphorescence and dolphins. But I also shouldn’t shy away from the brilliant natural showers we got from mother nature. Wouldn’t have been so beautiful if you were within sight of two unfit naked bodies soaping down and screaming. Brrr next time we’ll invest in a solar shower!
