I am now a “liveaboard,” which may or may not be a derogatory term, depending on how the boat and the owner look.. Moving in was quite an ordeal. I never thought all my stuff would fit in the boat, but it did. I have the use of one bunk out of four mind you. A second one will be freed once my dinghy is out. I am finishing putting things away today, which is my third day aboard. Luckily I have found showers within a few minutes walk; great because I was quickly reverting to being a Frenchman.

The bow storage areas under the bunks are full of cans and water, enough for about forty five days. I will keep these as my emergency or passage reserves. My friend Christine and I filled forty five two-liter bottles with filtered water.

My main concern now is to fix my diesel inboard engine. I could not find out why there is no compression. Time to call in a professional. Then it will be a waiting game hoping for a weather window. The winds need to be from the South-West for at least two full days.
