Farewell Unlimited Water & 240 Volts
With the final storm clouds rolling out and a hint of a southeasterly breeze, we decided it was time to drop the dock lines and head out to the bay. We rushed around for the last 2 weeks in the marina finishing off some last minute jobs requiring 240V power, before shedding the air-con and enjoying a last long shower. I now have a nice timber floor in the cockpit meaning I no longer need to stand on tippy toes while at the helm!
Shortly after leaving the marina I also finished up at Perkins Shipping, where I’ve been working for the last 5 months. Freedom again – what adventures will this year bring? It’s just business as usual for Si who managed to dodge the call to work again this year, insisting a full time maintenance man is much more useful.
