Jan 16 thru Jan 19
Tuesday, January 16
Wow! A day with full sunshine and no high wind! We need this kind of day! In listening to the Cruiser's Net this morning on VHF channel 68, a cruiser currently on a mooring ball in Hope Town confirmed that today is garbage collection day. Another cruiser came on and said he thought the garbage was collected on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Someone had to tell the second cruiser that today is Tuesday. It was pretty funny in the moment. It ended with a lot of funny comments from other cruisers.
It is now 1 PM and we’re making fresh water using our RAINMAN. Since it was so noisy last time when we used it in the cockpit, this time we are using it on the bow of s/v Rainy Days and the noise is a little more tolerable because the unit is a little further away from us and it is running in the open atmosphere. The hum of it’s little 50cc engine reverberates through the boat’s fiberglass deck.
|Our RAINMAN desalinator is operating on our foredeck. |
We tried this location because of the high noise level.
