I’m gonna swap them out right now climb
the mast get the globe go the store climb the mast again and put it back in
put it all back together and we should be sweet the hopefully we can get out of
here with just one day pain at the marina they’ll be great okay okay okay so we’re situated at that
marina now and ready to off and explore so just found out there’s a bus just up
the road that just runs us right into town in 15 minutes
perfect so we’re gonna go check out the old town for the afternoon excited a
excite seeing its first kind of we’re up to this morning
crophopper washing airing sturdy and more importantly we’re going to the
mechanic so hopefully gets on out to the boat
ASAP we need an alternator that works okay so we had to get in there
professionals to have a look at the engine for me just cuz I don’t have the
tools and he showed up with like a real set of tools I’m free pretty man jealous
of his tools and here’s a problem in here you see these two little holes
that’s what they alternate amounts to there’s no alternators hanging back
there both of those bolts are just sheared straight off so he’s off now I
think he’s gone back to his workshop to try and get the let the threaded section
of the bolt is still stuck inside the mounting bracket get that out of there
couple of new bolts and hopefully should be back together real soon yeah
if I can help ya holding something or something gives you oh yeah that’s a
tough job I spent plenty hours sweating in that
engine compartment the next job I’ve been tackling this morning is getting
our our stern compass light running again so that’s good and the next one I
have to do is top of the mast it’s our anchoring light has failed on
us so the only way to get up that high on our mast I’m gonna have to climb the
topping lift off our boom but right now it’s this really old like chalky bit of
crappy rope so that was not gonna work out for me so I’ve just been to the
marine store bought some more ropes yeah freshen off our lines so I’m gonna
swap them out right now climb the mast get the globe go the store climb the
mast again and put it back in put it all back together and we should be sweet and
hopefully we can get out of here with just one day pain at the marina they’ll
be great I’m higher than you alright so just come
up the mask to work out what’s gone wrong when I was trying to pull this
topping leaf line through it and now I’ve seen the problem I’ve already
messed it up there’s two pulleys at the top of the mask and I’ve tied that
little bit of lanyard that little bit of string between the two robes and as I
pulled the first one that little bit of strings jumped the pulley and is now
like wedge itself down next into it maybe you can see it it’s just down in
there so brought some pliers up so hopefully I can pluck it out and sort
out this mistake decent GOP though look at anybody Cheryl violin putting up the
water there was that’s my fault when I tie
this knot I’m gonna make sure it’s right at the end or maybe tape it in really
tight first time vertical a climbing Tamar so I worked out pretty well
hey VAD let’s get this line in and swap in another line Oh
the old one was tatted I’ve been banging on the moss and getting cut up
it’s nice new green one let’s do it so it’s been a fun 24 hours stay at the
marina but we’re gone we got all the jobs somebody wanted to get done so
starved all the lights are working again alternators actually bolted on which is
great got some new lines in so we’re ready to hit the road let’s get out of
here she’s so pretty we’ve headed south past Dubrovnik and
now this is the next kind of town on the coast and the last that is the farther
south town that you can check out of Croatia from cavtat so apparently
there’s a customs key and we might have to met more like on the anchor which
will be our first time but there’s very light almost no wind so perfect chance
to try it out you will not believe the beast that is beside us look at this
boom boom and that thing is in sin it’s so shiny
it’s like affair Captain Hook was immortalized as a sailboat and with the
red and the gold trim it’s just so majestic I do even want to know how much
that costs or who would own such a boat but it is a beauty just coming into this Anchorage it’s
pretty shallow in this whole bag so kind of pick away your life but the winds
gonna be predominantly tonight out of the north and northeast so we’re gonna
try and get in the corner a little bit and get some protection today we did our
first well I guess that was yesterday we did our first stern to and then review
now yesterday once we got to cap taught to check out and fortunately we can
check out because the police systems down or something like that so we found
another Anchorage and we had to mad muir they’re like properly mad Merce at the
anchor and all the rest of it and everybody was bloody watching so I
thought we did a pretty good job nailed it come in nice and slow and
under control team effort pretty proud of us and now we can just relax for the
night and watch sunset stoked we finally got checked out of Croatia yes okay I think this is let’s go check it
out for the Paul police don’t got a piece of paper
lady was super nicer we just run around trying to spend all that Kunis because
they’ll be no good to it soon and now to the police you can get out of here and
now go into Montenegro so what he thoughts on Croatia Cheryl
finally checked out after what two months in the country
having it’s a beautiful beautiful country that we didn’t actually get to
explore it as much as you think of and we were here for two months I’ve had a
terrific time but what are your expectations of Montenegro I got my chip yours look incredible
it’s exciting to get to another country by Silva think that someone’s gonna like
and show goddess Mars ice creams so our fries not very good so we had to eat
them right away anyway I didn’t trust my life to that and a new line was I 80
bucks I guess my life so it maybe goes just

  1. What is it they say about the cruising lifestyle? Boat work in exotic locations…so true! Where is the most exotic place you've done boat maintenance?
