Its good to relax and catch up with work at the same time.
For the first time in 16 months, since i joined the boat, we are standing still for a few weeks. Boring i know, but it gives me a great opportunity to catch up with the jobs that have been shelved because i never knew when we would move next.
So some interesting stuff to sort out, lots of PLC related issues and two generators with curious governor faults. My plan is an epic one as always – finish them all before the skipper gets back, and also complete my dive master to boot – all will be happy and then we can sail off into the sunset once more.
Next stop is Belize, hopefully late in february. The galapagos was shelved unfortunately, in favour of Belize and a tour up the east coast of the states, stopping for a month in Cincinatti to do some work for our Lloyds 5 year survey. That will mean yet another frantic time for me but then i guess that is what i get paid to do.
I have always wanted to try the states, i wonder if they are as mental as the media makes them out to be, i guess there is only one way to find out !
After that, i have no idea – Canada could be on the cards but the boss found Scandinavia too cold last summer so i doubt that will happen. Likely to hang around the states all summer and then return to the Caribbean again next winter.
I guess thats it for now, i still have some reading to do before tomorrow’s work efforts and some photos to send to the boat builders, so i better get back on it.
Have a moan - the beers are on me !!
